Mödiphiüs Entertainment, publishers of Legacy: Life Among The Ruins, have announced three brand new books to bring some massive sweeping changes to the world of the original game. The three new titles, Legacy: End Game, Legacy: The Engine Of Life and Free From The Yoke, are being released after the successful Kickstarter campaign which saw them raise over £25,000.
Legacy: Life Among The Ruins is a post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG which takes place over the course of many generations of a single family line. As you might expect to survive the nightmarish wasteland can be quite challenging. The new books aim to bring different themes to the world of the core Legacy ruleset. The first book, Legacy: End Game, focuses on evil, death, darkness and decay, pitting players against their own dark desire for power. Legacy: The Engine Of Life somewhat acts as a counterpoint to End Game, instead choosing to focus on hope and co-operation. Instead of being a book which focuses on the inherent existential nightmare at the heart of human existence The Engine Of Life hopes to shine a light on what humanity can accomplish when it works together.
Free From The Yoke is perhaps one of the most interesting of the three books on offer here. The third book adapts the world of Legacy to a world of fantasy based on Slavic mythology. Set in a world of kings, emperors and nobles the Free From The Yoke book has your family starting out as a freely-released slave family, and tasks you with discovering what sort of kingdom you might be able to build.
All three books will start shipping to Kickstarter backers by the end of the month. If you’re interested in these books but weren’t able to participate in the Kickstarter campaign then you can go ahead and pre-order your copies right now.
