This is likely the last "What's New?" for 2015. What was your favorite New Release this year?

New releases at your FLGS

It's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game release week! Paizo Publishing is in stores with A Song of Silver (Adventure Path #100 - Hell's Rebels), Cheliax, The Infernal Empire, Agents of Evil (a companion soucebook), and The House on Hook Street (a deluxe adventure). (Source: Leisure Games, Alliance)

Weird, another Star Wars release! This time Fantasy Flight Games has delivered Keeping the Peace for Star Wars: Force and Destiny from a galaxy far, far away. (Source: Leisure Games, Alliance)

Following up on the core book, Modiphius Entertainment has released Mutant Chronicles Players' Guide for Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game. (Source: Impressions)

Castles & Crusades gets another adventure. Harvest of Oaths from Troll Lord games is set in an area that overlooks the Wingnut Bottoms. Who wouldn't want to adventure there? (Source: Impressions)

Funded by Kickstarter (and delivered long past the delivery date), Hammerdog Games has the Pathfinder System Compatible Product megadungeon The Grande Temple of Jing into distribution. (Source: Alliance)

When I think of the holidays, the first thing that pops to mind is Rifts Chaos Earth. Palladium Books brings the holiday cheer with Resurrection - a zombie sourcebook. (Source: Alliance)

I think this is the first time this book has hit distribution. Funded by Kickstarter and brought to you by Third Eye Games, Apocalypse Prevention, Inc. 2nd Edition is now in stores. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

Psi-punk: World's Edge Arena is the latest release for Psi-punk from Accessible Games and our own Jacob Wood. This sourcebook "takes players to the city of Punta Arenas, Chile, where they compete for extraordinary wealth. The book includes rules for arena combat, plenty of monsters and human opponents to fight, and enough setting detail and plot hooks to help GMs build ongoing campaigns set in and around the area." PDF is available now with print coming soon.

Narrowly avoiding the Grid Overwatch Division, Lars has emerged with details for Rigger 5.0 (a vehicle sourcebook) and SRM06-01: Ten Fifty-Seven (begins a new series of Missions) for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs.

Friend of the News Tim Huckelbery stopped by to let us know that Enemies Without has been released in PDF for Dark Heresy (2nd Edition). It had previously been released in print in early November.

D&D PDFs this week: d20 Past (d20M), Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue (4E), Dungeon (Issue 220 - Nov 2013) (4E), and Dragon (Issue 429 - Nov 2013) (4E).

(Note: Due to time constraints, I only cover the D&D PDFs and anything that I receive as a tip. Let us know about new PDFs you've seen in the comments. If you would like to cover PDFs, please let us know!)

Chronicles of Darkness Announced by Onyx Path and White Wolf

Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!
mbmbmbmbmb
Onyx Path Publishing and the newly formed White Wolf Publishing have announced a new brand name for the Chronicles of Darkness RPGs.

Quote:
These game lines include Vampire: the Requiem 2nd Edition, Werewolf: the Forsaken 2nd Edition, Mage: the Awakening 2nd Edition, Promethean: the Created 2nd Edition, Changeling: the Lost 2nd Edition, Hunter: the Vigil 2nd Edition, Geist: the Sin-Eaters, Mummy: the Curse, Demon: the Descent, and Beast: the Primordial, as well as any upcoming projects and game lines.

The purpose behind Chronicles of Darkness is to enable the game lines of the first World of Darkness that started in 1991 and the New World of Darkness that started in 2004, to coexist as distinct and different settings. Onyx Path‘s ongoing publication of the 2nd Edition core books has already evolved the Chronicles of Darkness game lines into their own unique settings, and this change in the overall title will allow our creative teams to further explore these game lines’ own themes and tone.


Thanks to Steve Dubya for the tip.
