    [Legendary Games] The Ultimate Kingdoms Kickstarter for 5E is LIVE!

    The biggest Kickstarter in the entire Kingdom is LIVE and ready for you!

    Join the Royal Court and claim your throne as a King or Queen!


    Now through July 3rd, rise up and RULE!


    Heroes find fame and fortune in their adventures, but why just be rich as a king when you can actually BE A KING? Carving out a domain of your own has been a part of the game since the beginning, and Ultimate Kingdoms is an ideal supplement to cover what your character can do when you get home from that epic journey or drag your loot out of the dungeon. There’s more to the hero life than just buying the sharpest sword or the mightiest staff. Your character should really be somebody in the campaign world, make their mark, and build a legacy that will last, and that’s where Ultimate Kingdoms comes in!


    This hardback book contains the rules you need to build a kingdom and a legacy for your character! Legendary Games has compiled over 400 pages of our best-selling Ultimate line to bring you an awesome array of options for your characters outside of dungeon delving, including:


    - Kingdoms – core rules for creating cities, nations, and armies
    - Ultimate Rulership – expanded cities, improvements, edicts, events, governments
    - Ultimate Battle – expanded tactics, command boons, terrain, environment,
    - Ultimate War – expanded commanders, sieges, air and sea battles, combined arms
    - Ultimate Factions – power and politics, secret missions, alliances, influence, treason
    - Ultimate Relationships – build robust relationships with key NPCs
    - Ultimate Strongholds – classic castles and fantastic fortresses
    - Ultimate Ships – ship-to-ship combat, fast-play fleet combat, ship modifications
    - Ultimate Commander – a brand-new character class leading their squad on adventures!
    - plus stretch goals featuring brand-new content, including the long-awaited Ultimate Armies rules for mercenary bands, logistics, a bestiary of troops, and more!


    PLUS, we’ve got amazing stretch goals, an army of awesome guest authors like Ed Greenwood, Allen Hammack, Stephen Radney-MacFarland, Robert Schwalb, Sean Reynolds, and more, spanning the history of D&D, from old-school AD&D to modern Adventurer’s League and all points in between to bring you exciting new additions.


    Get on over to Kickstarter and claim your crown today!

    We've already knocked down the first stretch goal! Check out the latest update here!

    Next up in stretch goals, we get the first expansion from what was once destined to become Ultimate Armies, the 10th installment in our Ultimate line. Instead, we'll be adding those new elements as stretch goals to this campaign for everyone to enjoy! First up, the troop template with conversion guidelines for transforming ordinary creatures into adventure-level mobs, gangs, and hordes to battle your PCs, along with sample troops to drop into your campaign!


    Plus, coming soon it's FREE LOOT FOR EVERYBODY!!! We're not even kidding - check out the backer goals! At 300 total backers, all backers get a free PDF of the Treasury of the Kingdom for their favorite system, with dozens of great magic items to stock your kingdom, including many that integrate with the kingdom-building and mass combat rules you'll find in Ultimate Kingdoms!


    Check it all out and pledge, Pledge, PLEDGE!!!

    The Ultimate Kingdoms Kickstarter ends next week, but thanks to your generous support it just keeps getting more awesome! The noble and righteous (( (yes, (( ) pushed us over the $38,000 mark, unlocking new warfare logistics and supply rules from Jason Nelson and Ben Walklate! And just before then we had actually TWO people with the honor of being backer #600 - first Chad Kirkendall hit the mark, but then someone abdicated their throne and dropped us back to 599! Thankfully, the noble Baron Jeff Phinney stepped right us and pushed us back to 600 to unlock our latest special guest author, the bodacious and bombastic Brian Berg, owner of TPK Games and maker of many awesome things for 5E and Pathfinder!

    Next up in our sights, new artwork from Arrahman Rendi at $40,000 and another awesome guest author - none other than Nicolas Logue! We are excited and delighted to see the great response to this project, as it is on track to be our most-backed Kickstarter ever (currently the Pirate Campaign Compendium at 717 backers), and we look forward to a fantastic final 9 days!


    Keep spreading the word! There are crowns to be claimed!

    - Surveys coming soon for new possible card decks and even Kingdoms and Battles GM Screen Inserts!

    Add that to the incredible content already added to Ultimate Kingdoms, with new rules for troops, mercenary companies, trench warfare, logistics, a troop bestiary, and more, plus a veritable Who's Who of guest authors from the history of RPGs and fantasy fiction, including Ed Greenwood, Stephen Radney-MacFarland, Robert Schwalb, Chris Jackson, Cat Tobin, Jaym Gates, Elisa Teague, Nicolas Logue, Brian Berg, Allen Hammack, Tim Beach, Lynne Hardy, Owen K.C.
