Fates of Madness is a cooperative role-playing light adventure card game based on the popular Gothic Campaign Compendium by Legendary Games with game design by Mythica Gaming.
This diceless game is varied by the use of Fate cards and skill level to determine success or failure. This horror themed adventure is the first joint project between Legendary Games and Mythica Gaming.

Risks and challenges
The biggest hurdle that would delay the project is shipping. The final game will be printed in China. Printing dates, shipping, and customs can delay fulfillment. We have built in some time to expect delays but these parameters are pretty much outside our control. That said, Mythica Gaming and Legendary Games have successfully used China printers in the past.
The majority of the design work has been completed for Fates of Madness.
Mythica Gaming has previously fulfilled Legends of Draxia, and is in the process of fulfilling Legends of Draxia: Corrupted Mana Expansion. The Expansion is in pre-press at the manufacturer.
Currently Legendary Games is fulfilling the below Kickstarters though they have different teams assigned to them. Legendary Games CEO Jason Nelson is focused on managing these projects, while Business Director Rachel Ventura and the Mythica Gaming team manages the Fates of Madness project.
Pirate Campaign Compendium: The Pathfinder PDF has been delivered and the print books ordered and beginning delivery. The 5E PDF should be ready this month and print books ordered shortly.
Alien Bestiary: The Pathfinder AB is complete and PDF delivered with print books shipping now. The Starfinder and 5E books are nearing completion. The Alien Codex and Aethera Field Guide are planned for completion in June and July.
Legendary Planet: The final book is currently being written by Jason Nelson. Once that adventure is finished, the full Legendary Planet AP compilation version will be assembled for our backers.
Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium: These books are scheduled to arrive at LG in mid-June and begin shipping out shortly thereafter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
