    Pokmon Tabletop United: The Blessed and the Damned is an advanced players guidebook for the PTU system focusing on how Legendaries interact with the players and the setting, and advanced character advancement op-tions detailed around interacting with these creatures. This book doesnt detail everything you need to play, as its just an expansion on the core rules. Also note the Version Notes section for a list of changes through its editions.

    I by no stretch of the imagination believe these rules or assumptions are something we assume every campaign should work around. In fact, the reason this book exists is A) we wanted to separate the ideology of Legendary classes entirely from the core rules and B) it allows us to talk more about Legendaries as Gods and their interac-tions with the setting. A lot of these ideas, however, were very common place in the developer community and I have drawn a lot from that. Think of this book as a toolbox, you dont have to use all of it but you can pick and choose things from here and tweek them as you wish to fit your game.

    What you can expect from this is a better idea on how to tie Legendaries into your setting if you want to take a more divine approach like the later games imply rather than how they were in the earlier games. I think a lot of the ideas here will help facilitate your creation of your own pantheons, their followers, enemies, rivals, etc. As for the PC Options what you can expect is a lot of really neat stuff that supplements what was lost with classes like Signer, Crypto, Touched, and Godspeaker not existing in PTUs core book. Youll find them here, and more options as well for archetypes that have come up during campaigns but had no class to fit them.

    Chapter 1: Gods and Legends starts this off with the big goat in the sky himself: Arceus. It discusses explanations for what makes a Legendary Pokmon different from a normal Pokmon. After this, we head right into the Lower and Upper Pantheons of Legendaries, giving you some example blurbs of flavor for each of the Legendaries and what their Domains and such are. This also includes the section for The Outsiders - things that are Legendary Pokmon, but are sort of odd and dont fit with the rest exactly. At the end are two completely custom ideas for Legendaries, the Unown Hivemind, and The Outer Gods.

    Chapter 2: Unwinding The Secrets discusses topics more suited for a GM. This includes how to incorperate these Legendard beings into your world, and how to handle confrontation or seeking to capture one. This in-cludes an index of the Auras, and how to handle a Legendary Pokmon being killed.

    Chapter 3: The Blessed and Damned moves into Trainer Advancement options. Take note that none of the options here have the [CLASS] Tag. This is intentional! You cant really plan to take these things at character generation, as they normally present themselves fairly late into a game and often by surprise, so you could very easily already have four Classes by the time they became available. Think of these as branches of general fea-ture
