Hoping for some news on the status of Legend, and possible new products.

So... we're pretty much at the "end of 2019"... Any news?
Still not forgotten, but we are absolutely buried at the moment - I'll go through things in detail in the forthcoming State of the Mongoose.
Gotcha! Thanks for the quick response. I'll keep my eyes out for the SotM.

Thanks!

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Legend We know there will be a fair few of you wanting to hear about our plans for the Legend RPG. This entire line has been stymied by the graphics bottleneck, but this has started to be loosened up. It will take a few months to properly get back up to speed but, once there, we already have some m...

Re: Dedicating POW to a God

Interesting take on godhood, I think. In the past, I'd always gone from the mythic aspect down to the worldly aspect. EG: Zeus is the king of the gods, so clearly he has the most worshippers and the biggest temples. But it could be interesting to create a system for worship, so gods who get more POW...

Re: Dedicating POW to a God

This is pretty interesting. I don't think it'll work for the game I'm planning (where I'm working on the idea that the world's gods choose heroes rather than interfering directly). But I can see it being very useful for a game with a little more direct divine intervention.

Re: Dedicating POW to a God

Interesting question. In the decades I’ve been playing RQ-derived games I’ve never thought about defining stats for deities. I guess what I’d do is allow them access to cult magic-like abilities. If you need to define it, I guess you could allow them to use the abilities a number of times based on h...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Legend is a great way to get new players into the D100 system. Mythras fleshes out the system with extra detail, but simplicity is a virtue when dealing with new players. I'd argue that Leged almost hits the sweet spot. The rules could do with another editorial pass if there is a revised edition, b...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Yeah, I’ve looked at that one. Great book! RD100 didn’t really do much for me, but YMMV and all.

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

CoC 6 was the last version of that game I played. Checked out 7 when it came out, but it didn't do anything for me. It's finally become more of a historical simulation with an overlay of horror, rather than the great horror game it started as. Some of the other modern d100-based games just sort of o...

Re: State of Mongoose 2019: Legend

Glad to hear Legend will hopefully be getting some more love in the near future. I'm a long time D100-system fan, who's taken a break from RPGing over the last few years. When I started getting back into the hobby recently, decided Legend was the sweet spot for me. Some of the other D100-based games...
