About this project
THE TRIAL OF NATURE’S GRACE
Ally with the legendary creatures of Xyleria, harness their abilities, cast powerful spells, visit magical places, and master the elemental realms to become the next Druid of Nature's Grace!
STRATEGY, CREATURES, COMBOS, OH MY!
Legendary Creatures is a deck and resource management game where you cleverly combine your creatures' abilities, magic spells, and powerful amulets in a race through four elemental realms. However watch out: as you maneuver for mastery in one realm your opponents may steal the lead in another.
You'll have only 9 rounds to prove yourself using a wide range of tactics and strategies to claim the title: Druid of Nature's Grace.
- Select your legendary creatures, leverage their abilities, and befriend new ones to evolve your creature party.
- Use powerful amulets, cast Druidic spells, and manage your resources to aid your familiars and outmaneuver your opponents.
- Explore ancient landmarks to gain renown and unique advantages.
Legendary Creatures is 2-4 players, 30minutes/player, and 13+.
Chris Hamm - designer of Strife - has created an approachable and expanded take on ability, creature, and spell combinations. Lou Catanzaro & Sebastian Koziner bring it to life with incredible creatures, environments and striking graphic design and Eduardo Baraf of Pencil First Games is at the helm of Legendary Creatures to ensure it stays on your shelf and table for years to come.
Kickstarter Exclusive Creatures!
All backers receiving Legendary Creatures get a full set of Medusa and Hydra wild creatures to add to the Vast Expanse.

"Who might be digging this game? If you like a game with a lot of different things to keep your eye on...if you are a fan of games with less luck and more about skill...if you like variability, this one has a good deal of variability." -Forrest
Man vs. Meeple (note: MvM has a game submission fee)
"These Vast Expanse creatures - they allow to really kind of pick these guys, put them into a position which people weren't expecting them to be used, and then manipulate them right then which is great." - Jeremy

Risks and challenges
Legendary Creatures is Pencil First Games' sixth Kickstarter. Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet!, The Siblings Trouble, GemPacked Cards, Heroes and Tricks, and Herbaceous all successfully funded and shipped to backers. We strive to run excellent Kickstarters and deliver fantastic products.
Legendary Creatures is well tested and balanced. The graphic design is complete and the card art is final. Box and instructions are near final and we have been working closely with our printer.
There are inherent risks whenever undertaking a project as complex and large as producing and distributing a board game, but I have been making complex projects with countless moving parts and large budgets most of my career. I've gone out of my way to surround myself with experienced board game developers, distributors, and people who have run and launched successful Kickstarters. This team of friends has been exceedingly supportive and I'm sure will help as we hit any upcoming bumps in the road. And there are bumps. Strikes, shortages, shipping delays are all hard to predict.
Most importantly, if something does go wrong, I will keep everyone in the loop as the project moves forward and comes to market. This game will exist because you all will have made it happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
