Mongoose Publishing announced two new books in the works for Legend and Elric of Melnibone. The new sourcebooks, Talons of Winter and Pirates of Legend will be great additions for the growing brand. It seems that the release date is in June, but I guess that electronic copies will be available earlier.

Talons of Winter (Elric of Melnibone, Legend)

  This sourcebook add further locations to the northland of the Young Kingdoms Northern Continent, and a new campaign tied to the area.

   We receive details about the legendary city of Xanardwys, which feature an enchanted land with warm waters, peaceful citizens and trade opportunities. We get to know the famous citizens, key locations and everything else to include the city in our campaigns, as well as several scenario seeds. Additionally the fearsome northern giants and the troll-like Snow Hag also find their place in the book.

  The included campaign Vengeance Served Cold is very flexible, including several plot hooks and scenarios. The ambition of the Gods and their servants are fighting each other, threatening  an all out war on the Dakwinsi Steppe.

Pirates of Legend (Legend)

   Let’s explore the Caribbean in the golden age of piracy ! Pirates of Legend add this interesting setting to the brand, so now we could wield our cutlasses, fire our pistols and board enemy ships. I can only guess, but I think this include rules for cannons and naval combat.

   I hope that the quality of the work and the background material will be the same as in Vikings of Legend and Arcania of Legend : Blood Magic, as both of those books were excellent.

And others…

   If you check out the Mongoose Publishing‘s website you could see that several other books are on the way for the Legend RPG, steadily growing the available material.

   The Cities of Legend line opens with Skarr: City of Orcs in April, adding an unique location (a home of about 25.000 savage orcs) to our campaigns. In the same month Secrets of the Steppes  give detail on the Dakwinsi Steppe of the Elric of Melnibone setting, including geography, denizens and scenario seeds among others. And if even this is not enough Legend RPG to you, than take a look at the incoming Historia Rodenta setting, where animals go to war in a twisted version of the 19th Century.

I think this will be a good year for Legend fans (including myself).
