The Lounge: Legendary Planets & Games

iIPNV9aqUYrGsHey Folks. This week on the lounge I have Jason Nelson and Neil Spicer from Legendary Games on to talk about themselves, Legendary Games, and the Legendary Planet Kickstarter. What is the Legendary Planet Kickstarter you ask? Well here’s a little taste:

Interplanetary Adventure, New Worlds, Ancient Civilizations, Alien Species, and more, with a delightful mix of magic and technology, with a dash of psionics and mythic challenges! Legendary Games brings you an eight-part, sword-and-planet adventure path; authored by some of the biggest names in the RPG business. Legendary Planet will take your characters across the multiverse, traveling alien gateways created by ancient, god-like beings to exotic worlds and back again in an incredible campaign like none other. Sword-swingers and spell-slingers stand alongside scoundrels and seekers for cosmic enlightenment as they  unravel conspiracies and cryptic alliances bent on universal domination… or annihilation!

If that caught your attention you can check out the kickstarter by clicking the link below or listen in to hear right from the martian’s mouth.
