Legendary Games is running a two week campaign to raise funds to print our products and ultimately get them into game stores. We will begin with the Gothic Adventure Plug Ins Series which have received rave reviews. We have set the funding price to cover the minimal printing cost, Kickstarter/Amazon fees, and shipping. We want this project to be as transparent as possible. So to keep things simple we have laid out our plan below.

Legendary Games is committed to bringing you — the busy GM or player — the absolute best 3rd party support for your Pathfinder campaign. To deliver on that commitment, we’ve assembled the best of the best of current gaming authors, designers and layout experts such as Superstar design contest winners Neil Spicer and Matt Goodall and finalists like Clinton Boomer, Jim Groves, Jason Nelson, and Russ Taylor, industry veterans like Greg Vaughan, Tim Hitchcock, and Clark Peterson, and stellar new talent like Todd Stewart, Tom Phillips, and Jonathan H. Keith.

The initial pledge levels will include the compilation of the entire line of Gothic Grimoires, including The Necrotic Verses, To Serve A Prince Undying, Spellbones Of The Devourer, The Sepulchral Swaths of Tanoth-Gha, On the Unseen Calculus of Inverse Refraction, plus The Mad Doctor's Formulary, Construct Codex, Treasury Of The Macabre,Tomes Of Ancient Knowledge, Cultic Cryptomancia, Beyond the Void, Gothic Heroes, The Murmuring Fountain, and The Fiddlers Lament.

This Core Book, The Gothic Adventure Plug-In, will be first printed initially as a Case Bound Hardback 240 page book in full color. Pages are stitched into the book at 16 page packets for ultimate quality.

We will increase the size of the book by adding some amazing new content by Greg A. Vaughan, Feasting at Lanterngeist and Omnia Mutandis by Jason Nelson, plus fabulous artwork by LG favorites Frank Hessefort, Tanyaporn Sangsnit, and Mike Lowe.

Plus EVERY backer will get the first issue of Open Gaming Monthly, FREE! Compliments of John Reyst at http://d20pfsrd.com/.

But why stop there if we are on a roll. If we bring in 23K we will print the Kingdom Building Adventure Plug In Compilation as a Case Bound Hardback 208 page book in full color and add it to EVERY PRINT PLEDGE FOR FREE!

This book includes the following titles: Conquering Heroes, Beasts of Legend Coldwood Codex, Beasts of Legend: Boreal Bestiary, Cold Mountain, Horns of the Hunted, and Faerie Passions.

This PDF is available now to add on at a SUPER LOW price to any pledge for only $35 (A 21% savings off the retail price)!

Might as well dream big, right? If we hit this bonus goal we will print the Far East Adventure Path Plug-In compilation as a 160 page, full color, Case Bound Hardback. Add it to EVERY PRINT PLEDGE FOR FREE!

The titles include Imperial Heroes, Road to Destiny, Under Frozen Stars, The Baleful Coven, The Way Of Ki and Meditations of the Imperial Mystics.

This PDF is available now to add on at a SUPER LOW price to any pledge for only $30 (A 17% savings off the retail price)!

At 100 backers we will commission NEW artwork to add to the already amazing artwork from the Gothic Series!

At 150 backers we will have Ben Wooten do the cover for the Gothic Adventure Path Plug In book. Any backer can add $10 to their pledge to have an archival 9” x 12” semi-gloss poster of the cover. The posters will be photo processed, not printed, using a silver-halide process considered the highest standard in the photo developing industry. Unlike traditional printed posters, the silver-halide process yields “100-year+ quality” that has long been tested and used by the top photo labs in the world.

 At 200 Backers we will have the Hero Lab team create files for the entire Gothic Series. These files will be hosted on the Lonewolf marketplace for future purchase.

At 900 backers we will write a sequel to Faerie Passions for Kingdom-building! If we hit Bonus Goal $30,000 we will add it to the Kingdom-Building Compilation book. Otherwise it will be available on our site.

Note: this goal may delay the estimated due date by two months.

At 1200 backers we will have Clinton Boomer create another martial arts book for Far East! If we hit Bonus Goal $48,000 we will add it to the Far East Compilation book. Otherwise it will be available on our site.

Note: this goal may delay the estimated due date by two months.

Add $10 to have Jason Nelson sign your book.

Legendary Games is an all-star team of authors and designers, coordinated by award-winning game designer Jason Nelson. We publish support materials for extended Adventure Path-style campaign play for use with Paizo’s Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

When you see the “Adventure Path Plug-In” logo at the top of a Legendary Games product, you can expect it is designed to fit directly with the themes of a particular Adventure Path campaign. Though Adventure Path Plug-Ins all share a theme with a specific Adventure Path campaign, they are designed to be easily incorporated into your home game regardless of what campaign you may be running.

You can feel comfortable that Legendary Games products will be the most creative, rules-legal, and well-designed content you can find, with stellar production values that make our products stand out from the crowd. We are gamers and storytellers first, and we believe that passion shows in our products.

Risks and challenges

Our risks are low as the pdfs of these products already exist and we have lined up a printer. The work mostly comes in doing layout to combine the books into a high res print file. Once the funds are transferred we can send the payment and files to the printer. Jason Nelson has been writing RPGs since 2002 and Rachel Ventura has overseen and ran several successful kickstarters projects. We understand the needs and dedication it takes to complete a project like this.
