It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games!
Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
- You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!
- Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship.
- A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!
- A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice.
- A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!
That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

How do I select the add ons? After you choose your reward level for the book, simply leave the reward level alone but increase the pledge dollar amount by the desired add on. We will send out a survey when the kickstarter ends asking what you pledged extra for. (Example: I want Pirate Campaign Compendium for 5E at the $50 Reward level. I also want both the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium hardback for 5E and the Gothic Campaign Compendium hardback for Pathfinder. Leaving the reward level still at $50, I add $90 more to my pledge. Thereby, my total pledge is $140 at the $50 reward level).
Risks and challenges
The majority of material for this book already has been written, with art and maps completed, and is ready for layout for both Pathfinder and 5E, and layout work already has begun before the project even launched on those chapters of the book that are complete and ready to go. New bonus material for potential stretch goals and new artwork would need to be contracted as we reach these goals.
All Legendary Games authors and artists are experienced, so we do not expect delays from them. We have already invested substantial time and money in preparing the products for this Kickstarter.
Progress on our previous Kickstarter projects: The Legendary Planet adventure series, is in it's final stage. We are expecting to ship these books in 2018. The Alien Bestiary and other books from that project are in the writing stage. All the art orders have gone out and many pieces have already come back. We expect the book to go into layout soon. Please note, the creative teams on these projects are separate from the Pirate Campaign Compendium, so we are not pulling resources away from getting those projects done to do this one.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
