Ultimate Kingdoms (5E)

Watermarked PDF

It's Good to Be the King! 

Ultimate Kingdoms takes your 5E campaign beyond dragons and dungeons to gain wealth, power, and influence in your favorite fantasy world! Within this beautiful book you'll find a comprehensive system for founding and ruling a kingdom of your own. Tame the wilderness to establish your cities, filling them with loyal citizens and monuments to your glory, as the cleverness of your edicts and the wisdom of your building decisions combine to create a kingdom that will outlast you. Engage in diplomacy, trade, festivals, espionage, and everything a mighty ruler must manage to keep their nation prosperous and happy. Of course, no kingdom is ever truly safe, and Ultimate Kingdoms provides a detailed yet easy-to-use abstract mass combat system that incorporates battles on land, sea, and air in a single integrated rule set, with flexible tactics, commanders, and both simple and advanced options, alongside bonus rules for sieges, logistics, battlefield terrain and weather, and more! Over and above ruling a kingdom and waging war on a large scale, Ultimate Kingdoms contains expansive rules that can be used in any 5E campaign or adventure, such as:

  • Ships & Sea: Nautical adventures and ship-to-ship combat, with simple and advanced rules as well as fast-play fleet battles, naval siege weapons and special ship modifications, hauling cargo, and seizing plunder! 
  • Strongholds: Construct your own buildings and castles, including exotic building materials and magical augmentations, character-level siege weapons, digging in on the battlefield, and exotic strongholds like cloud castles, crystal palaces, bone keeps, and walls of pure necrotic spirit!
  • Factions & Intrigue: Creating guilds, secret societies, and similar factions and organizations, wielding power and influence to shape society!
  • Relationships: Building deep and rich relationships with NPCs, developing your affinities to create life-long friendships, romances, and rivalries!
  • Character Options: New spells, feats, gear, and class features, as well as the brand-new general and hordelord classes! 
  • Awesome Extras: Sample kingdoms and organizations and appendices jam-packed with noble titles, troop conversion rules and dozens of sample military troops, mercenary name generator, detailed record sheets for your settlements, kingdoms, and military units! 

Your characters can become much more than just adventurers with Ultimate Kingdoms, and each subsystem presented here stands easily on its own but also has connections to the other rules in this book. This modular design lets you use any or all of the different parts of this book in your campaign to tailor these options for you and your players. Your heroes have beaten the bandits, overcome the orcish onslaught, and defeated the dragon, but in between their adventures your heroes would rather return home to a mighty throne instead of a warm campfire, now they can with Ultimate Kingdoms! Grab this fantastic 384-page 5th Edition rules expansion today and Make Your Game Legendary!

PDF version available now. Print and Print/PDF Bundles available for preorder at the Legendary Games webstore and should ship in July.

Does this contain all the content from the other Ultimate products? Does it add anything more on top of that?

How does it compare with the current offer over at Bundle of Holding? Would I be missing out on any content if I bought that rather than Ultimate Kingdoms, or vice versa?

If you read the other comments, you'll see that the publisher already answered that.

Layout for the Pathfinder version should finish up by mid-April and it will go out to backers of the Kickstarter first, but it should be available to the general public probably on or around May 1st.

How does this compare to Kingdoms? Is it all the ultimate books combined, or completely new content?

Could it... possibly... have settlement sheets?

It includes Kingdoms AND all the Ultimate Books, PLUS about another 70-80 pages of brand-new material...


(PS - Settlement sheets also are available as a separate free download!)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
