We are excited to announce that Legendary Planet is coming to a whole new game system next month! For anyone planning to try out the new sci-fi RPG from Paizo debuting next month at GenCon, you’ll be able to use Legendary Planet as a campaign. We have added the amazing Lyz Liddell, who edited the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, to our team to assist in this project. She is working behind closed doors on Starfinder versions of the Legendary Planet Player’s Guide and To Worlds Unknown, which we should have ready in time for GenCon, and is continuing on with the remainder of the series as well.
Starting with a sci-fi game as a baseline removes the need for a fantasy-world prequel like The Assimilation Strain, so the Starfinder version will begin right off on the prison planet of Garsilt. Though the rules are different, the core theme and focus of Legendary Planet remains on exotic sword-and-planet action. Though the tech level is dialed up compared to the Pathfinder and 5th Edition versions, FTL starships remain unknown as the Legendary Planet setting can be assumed to be either on the far frontier, beyond the reach of FTL exploration in the core Starfinder universe, or to exist at some point in the past, during the mysterious gap in the historical record before FTL drives were developed.
Finally, we are delighted to announce a new product line we are working on for Legendary Planet, a series of standalone planetary supplements called Legendary Worlds! Each one contains a detailed planet, including history, geography, culture, points of interest, and adventure hooks, plus a brand-new monster and new rules elements unique to that planet. Each installment of Legendary Worlds will be available for 5th Edition, Pathfinder, and Starfinder. The first four installments are already underway, with the new planets ready to debut in August! Check out the dream-world badlands of the penthe, the aquatic asquenti in their water-sheathed supermersibles, the asteroid hives of Carsis hives of the endless forest, and the molten planet of Volretz!
