In a bit more detail...
Our goal is to bring you a radical expansion to the mythic rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Our Kickstarter has been such a success so far that the Mythic Spell Compendium, a full-color hardback compilation around 330 pages long with new cover art by Carolina Eade, incuding every mythic spell from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Advanced Player's Guide, Ultimate Combat, and Ultimate Magic, and the brand-new Deep Magic hardback by Kobold Press, over 1,800 spells and counting!), as well as complete spell lists for every core spellcasting class, including domains and bloodline spells! We will continue adding spells from Paizo, Kobold Press, Legendary Games, and more as we go!
The Mythic Monster Manual is a full-color hardback with around 330 pages of monsters and appendices and new cover art by Ben Wootten, including mythic versions of those found in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary rulebooks as well as new mythic creatures for your game. As our stretch goals accumulate, the fans get to choose their Final Four favorites from each of Legendary Games' Mythic Monsters products. These creatures are automatically included in the final product, while the design team selects four additional creatures, some existing mythic monsters and some brand-new mythic monsters, to balance the final compendium across creature types and power level to create the best possible monster book for you.
The Mythic Hero's Handbook is around 320 pages of mythic feats, skills, path abilities, and more, with new cover art by Ralph Horsley and including every single feat from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Advanced Player's Guide, Ultimate Combat, and Ultimate Magic along with mythic versions of the class abilities of every character class in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Advanced Player's Guide, Ultimate Combat, Ultimate Magic, and more classes from Rogue Genius Games and from the New Paths Compendium by Kobold Press. Add to that new mythic path abilities for every path and a massive 60-plus-page mythic psionics project from Dreamscarred Press, bringing you everything you might need for integrating psionics into your mythic campaign.
In addition, we have begun adding HeroLab content for those who make use of that great electronic game-management tool! We have three HeroLab coders recommended to us by LoneWolf who will be working together on the massive task of compiling the new rules from this product in HeroLab format, and we are delighted to offer this extra feature to our backers!
All along the path, Legendary Games will be working hand-in-hand with Rogue Genius Games on a massive infusion of character-based crunch for your mythic character. Meanwhile, as part of our bonus goals the wonderful wizards of Kobold Press bring the manifold wonders of their encyclopedic Deep Magic expansion, while the marvelous minds of Dreamscarred Press deliver the definitive vision of mythic psionics for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.These are companies that have fulfilled successful Kickstarters already, companies that you can depend on to deliver an outstanding product every time.
Everyone loves a good Succubus, now you can have her in Mythic. Please download this preview Mythic Monsters: Demons and share it with your friends. Better yet, invite them to join the project.

In 2013 a very interesting expansion to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game arrived, the MYTHIC rules. Here was a rules set designed to let your character do all the crazy, cinematic, amazing, wahoo tricks that the greatest heroes of myth, legend, and modern media have made legendary. It brought an epic feel to the game but without making you wait until 21st level to do it. You could build your own legendary heroes from the ground up. It was a pretty amazing new toy, but there was just one problem. The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is big. For all the delights found within the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Mythic Adventures rulebook, there was only so much it could contain. A hundred or so feats, about twice that many spells, scarcely 50 monsters. A brilliant beginning, but there was so much more.
Into that gap stepped Legendary Games, with a crew of contributors who worked on the original mythic rules and knew them better than anyone. We produced supplements to fill the gaps in spells and feats and monsters like Mythic Magic: Core Spells and Mythic Monsters: Demons and a weekly line of Mythic Minis, converting existing rules and introducing brand-new additions specially designed for the mythic rules. Again, it was a brilliant beginning, but there was so much more.
To really integrate the broad sweep of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game with the mythic rules was a task too big for one little publisher, and besides any great legend requires a team of heroes to rise to the challenge. So we went and found a shifty rogue, and a clever kobold, and a dreamer with a lot on his mind, and together we are proud to bring you MYTHIC MANIA!
Mythic Spell Compendium: Hundreds upon hundreds of mythic spells to start, over two thousand if we hit all of our goals, incorporating spells from all of the Pathfinder Core Rules hardbacks as well as additional magics from Kobold Press' Deep Magic, Legendary Games' Gothic Campaign Compendium, and more!
Mythic Monster Manual: Dozens upon dozens of mythic monsters, including creatures previously appearing in the Mythic Monsters series from Legendary Games, creatures converted into amazing and deadly mythic versions from existing Pathfinder Roleplaying Game monsters, and brand-new mythic monsters as well. Plus an appendix of new mythic Universal Monster Rules, monster-focused feats, and new mythic simple templates are all coming your way through bonus goals!
Mythic Hero's Handbook: Hundreds and hundreds of mythic feats, eventually incorporating feats from all of the Pathfinder Core Rules hardbacks as well as brand-new mythic feats. Additional path abilities for every mythic path, and new mythic paths as well. Mythic skills. Mythic magic items. MYTHIC PSIONICS, brought to you by Dreamscarred Press, creators of the definitive psionics rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
When it comes to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Legendary Games, Kobold Press, Rogue Genius Games, and Dreamscarred Press are leaders in the industry, with catalogs of hundreds of products between us and multiple successful Kickstarters behind us. In terms of skill and style, these authors are the best in the business, working regularly on the Core Rules, Campaign Setting, and Companion lines of official products for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game as well as our own award-winning third-party products. These books will take a back seat in quality to no one, and you will be proud to put them on your shelves and dive deeply into all the amazing possibilities the mythic rules have to offer.

Risks and challenges
The biggest potential delay is art. Depending on the amount of art funded and artist used deadlines can shift. However, the four companies involved in this project have all cultivated an ever-growing stable of professional artists over the years who have solid reputations for quality and completion. We also have access to additional artists that can step in to complete the project if setbacks arise.
Collectively, we have successfully completed prior Kickstarters, including the Gothic Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games and Deep Magic from Kobold Press, and are in the process of shipping out those books now. We are planning on using the same printer which will help limit any risks to the backer. Our printer is timely and continually updates us with the schedule to keep the project on track.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
