We’ve added a supplement for Portal of Life character creation.
Each Midnight Legion gamebook can be played on its own, or the same character can progress through all three books. If you’re starting with Portal of Life, we’ve added something new—additional weapons and equipment to help you survive the challenges ahead. Download the PDF here.
Studio 9 has sold out of most of the original print runs of Midnight Legion Books 1 and 2, but both are now available as print on demand titles from DriveThru RPG.
Details: They’re available in both hardcover and softcover, and come in a standard size (6″x9″) that’s a bit bigger than the originals (6″x8.5″). They also cost a bit more (+$3-$10 depending on the title and format), except for the Book 1 softcover version, which costs $3 less than the Boxed Set since it does not contain the box or dice, and the map and Rule & Memories Book come as a free PDF accompanying the print book.
You can get the Midnight Legion, Book 1: Operation Deep Sleep POD edition here, and the Midnight Legion, Book 2: The World Reborn POD here. You may also still be able to find copies of the originals in your favorite book and hobby stores.
Studio 9 has made Last Recruit, the Midnight Legion prequel created for Free RPG Day, more widely available.
Now, you can purchase Last Recruit directly from the publisher.
In addition, DriveThruRPG is now making all existing Midnight Legion titles, including Last Recruit, available for the first time as downloadable PDFs:
There’s no longer any excuse not to join the Legion!
A new Midnight Legion adventure!
Last Recruit is a brief, limited edition prequel to Operation Deep Sleep, available at hobby shops across the United States for Free RPG Day 2018. If you miss it, don’t worry—it will be featured as one of the rewards for this summer’s Kickstarter for the third and final Midnight Legion volume, The Portal of Life.
The Last Recruit reveals how you joined the Legion and began your training. Each Midnight Legion gamebook contains detailed instructions for creating your character. If you play The Last Recruit, you can skip that process: by the end of the adventure, you will have a character that you can keep and use throughout the Midnight Legion gamebook series. The Last Recruit also features some minor character alterations that you can only access by playing this adventure, and completing the story will unlock an otherwise hidden scene in The Portal of Life.
About Last Recruit:
You have been recruited into the Midnight Legion, a clandestine group created to preserve human civilization after society’s inevitable collapse. If you complete your training, you will become a full agent. Unfortunately, figuring out who to trust won’t be as easy as it looks.
There’s no time to waste—the human race is depending on you.
The Midnight Legion, Book 2: The World Reborn is available now for preorder from the publisher, Studio 9, and from Amazon.com.

Midnight Legion Book 2: The World Reborn is now available for pre-order through Kickstarter.
More than four centuries have passed since the Devastation destroyed most of the human race. You are an agent of the Midnight Legion, tasked with preserving life and rebuilding civilization. Only one other agent remains, and she is somewhere ahead of you, racing for the Legion’s last remaining base. In this interactive novel, a standalone sequel to Operation Deep Sleep, you must solve puzzles, recover lost memories, and use stealth, combat, or diplomacy to reach the command center in time to prevent its ancient weapons from being unleashed.
Please check it out! For those of you who already ordered Books 2 and 3, we added a couple of extras to this campaign (the SUPPORT CREW and SPECIAL DOSSIER pledge levels) which you might enjoy. Either way, please free to share the news.
