It's April 1st which seems an entirely appropriate day for Jasen's birthday and yet I can't help but wonder if this is a joke he's played on us all...

Jacob Wood’s house recently suffered a major fire. Jacob has a young family, a busy self-made career with his wife AshleyRose in game development, freelance writing and layout, and is legally blind. Luckily nobody was hurt, but they’ve lost nearly everything.

Aside from the irreplaceable mementos and keepsakes of a family home, Jacob has lost the main tool of his trade; his computer.

Around these parts Jacob is better known as

It looks like March is leaving as a lamb...

New releases at your FLGS


Wyrd Miniatures is in stores this week with two releases for Through the Breach. Under Quarantine is a Resurrectionist faction sourcebook. That pairs well with the Penny Dreadful A Night in Rottenburg which is a four session adventure in the Quarantine Zone. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)



New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Faiths and Pantheons (3E), Into the Frozen Waste (3E), and Lest Darkness Rise (3.5). I'm early, so it wouldn't surprise me if other items appeared later today.

(Note: Due to time constraints, I only cover the WotC 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!)

Other Products

Pre-orders for Pathfinder #104: Wrath of Thrune, Inner Sea Faiths, and Ultimate Intrigue have been received by some folks. For Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, from Paizo Publishing of course. I'll report on them again when they hit stores... which should be very soon. (Thanks to sdonohue for the tip!)

U, Robot from Matt Youngmark and inkle Studios has been released at Amazon. Available as an ebook for only 99 cents (US), this interactive novella allows you to "take control of a giant worker robot, a humanoid replicant, or a sentient nanobot swarm and throw off the chains of robot oppression (or save humanity from the looming robocalypse, but seriously, where’s the fun in that?)." (Thanks to Sam/Bifford for the tip!)

Now available in print, Rigger 5.0 is a vehicle sourcebook for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

Speaking of Catalyst Game Labs, Transcendent's Edge for Valiant Universe RPG is now available at OBS and CGL's Battleshop. Who knew Lars was also a superhero?
