March roars in like a lion with some strong releases this week. Will it exit like a lamb?

New releases at your FLGS

The much anticipated Eyes of the Stone Thief for 13th Age from Pelgrane Press is making its way into stores. This is a mega-dungeon/campaign for your Champion tier characters. (Source: Impressions)

Looking for some OSR? Expeditious Retreat Press has just released AA #32: The Palace Beyond for Old School Reference and Index Compilation (OSRIC) or any suitable old school system. This is an adventure for 4-6 characters of levels 6-9. (Source: Impressions)

Funded by Kickstarter, Khepera Publishing now has Atlantis: Hero's Guide and Atlantis: Theragraphica into distribution. (Source: Impressions)

Modiphius Entertainment is in stores with several new items this week. I know Mutant: Year Zero Core Book (and accessories) has been in stores for a week or so, but this is the first time I've seen this Science Fiction (Post Apocalypse) RPG listed somewhere. Also, in a unique crossover product for Achtung! Cthulhu and Interface Zero, Achtung! Cthulhu Crossover Series: Full Metal Cyberpunk Interface 19.40 has been released in print (Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition)). (Source: Impressions)

I believe Cities of Mystery for Witch Hunter: The Invisible World may have been available for awhile, but this is another "first time I've seen it listed" item. It's from the fine folks at Paradigm Concepts, Inc.. (Source: Leisure Games)

Here's yet another "didn't I see this at Gen Con?" item... Gaslight Victorian Fantasy 2nd Edition (Savage Worlds) from Battlefield Press, Inc. is now at Leisure Games. (Source: Leisure Games)

This one is actually fresh from the presses... East Texas University, Degrees of Horror, and accessories from Pinnacle Entertainment Group are now available. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

The PDF for The Earthdawn Player's Guide 4th Edition (funded through Kickstarter) is now available through FASA's site. (Source: RPGG user magicoctopus).

D&D PDFs this week: Adventurer's Vault 2, Dungeon (Issue 171 - Oct 2009), Dungeon (Issue 172 - Nov 2009), and Dragon (Issue 372 - Feb 2009) (all for Dungeons & Dragons (4th Edition))

As always, let us know in the comments about the PDFs that piqued your interest!

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Random Round-up: Golden Geeks, ICv2's Top 5, Gary Con on Big Bang Theory, Playing D&D with Porn Stars vs. The Escapist

As everyone likely knows by now, Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) essentially swept the Golden Geek awards winning Best RPG, Best Artwork (Player's Handbook (D&D 5e)), and Supplement (Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set). D&D5E also had a hand in the Best Podcast category with Board with Life Radio focusing on their play of the Lost Mine of Phandelver.

Chaosium took two runners up with Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) and Horror on the Orient Express (2nd Edition). Margaret Weis Productions, Ltd. placed with Firefly Role-Playing Game, and Evil Hat Productions placed with Designers & Dragons: The 70s. Venerable podcasts Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff and Fear the Boot were also recognized.

ICv2 released their Top 5 Roleplaying Games for Fall/Holiday 2014:

1 Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) (Wizards of the Coast)
2 Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (Paizo Publishing)
3 Star Wars (Fantasy Flight Games)
4 Numenera (Monte Cook Games)
5 Fate (Evil Hat Productions)

The list is generated through interviews with retailers, distributors, and manufacturers.

Gary Con, an annual convention held in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin was mentioned several times on Big Bang Theory's episode that aired on 2/26/2015 in the US. Gary Con VII is taking place March 26-29, so I help Sheldon already has his plans in place.

"Playing D&D with Porn Stars" (fronted by Zak Smith) has pulled their new episodes of the documentary series "I Hit It With My Axe" from the Escapist over objections to a November 2014 tweet from one of the Escapist's employees (Brandon Morse). Since the "Playing D&D with Porn Stars" blog is NSFW, I won't link the site here (but a quick Google will certainly get you there). (Thanks to RPGG user Stelio for the tip.)

Game Chef: Call for a new coordinator as Avery Mcdaldno steps down

GO!
mbmbmbmbmb
Game Chef is an annual game design contest (mostly of the RPG variety) that has been running for over a decade and helped many budding designers getting a foot on the ground. The contest has also produced many games that were later developed into polished publications. Last but not least, it has fostered a community of mutual help, constructive feedback and innovative game design.

Avery Mcdaldno has been organizing Game Chef for the past two years during which the event has grown, most visibly through the several local branches run in their respective languages, but integrated into the global event.

As Avery is stepping down, both a new global coordinator as well as an English language coordinator are called for. Guidance and mentorship will be provided.

If you think about applying, reply at this Google+ post or email Avery at mcdaldno(at)gmail. Let her know if you're interested in taking on the coordinator role, splitting the role with someone else, or volunteering in some other way.

Cold enough for you folks in the northern hemisphere? Maybe the new releases this week will heat things up...

New releases at your FLGS

It's Shadowrun (5th Edition) time! Catalyst Game Labs has dropped Run Faster (standard and limited editions) and London Falling (to the faraway towns - wait, that's Calling) into stores. (Source: Leisure Games, Alliance, and - of course - Lars)

Paizo Publishing marches on. This week you can find Pathfinder #91: Battle of Bloodmarch Hill, Belkzen, Hold of the Orc Hordes, and Daughters of Fury on store shelves. (Source: Leisure Games)

In the "You Never Know" department, BlackWyrm Publishing's 2014 Gen Con release The Wandering Gyre for Savage Worlds is at Leisure Games with a variety of other small press titles that have seen previous release. (Source: Leisure Games)

Not all of us fly formal. Fly Casual, the smuggler sourcebook, is now available for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire from Fantasy Flight Games. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

Catalyst Game Labs has also dropped some of those electronic files the kids like so much. For Shadowrun, Shadows in Focus: City by Shadow - Cheyenne and Battle of Manhattan are now available. (Source: Lars!)

D&D PDFs this week: Dungeon (Issue 169 - Aug 2009), Dungeon (Issue 170 - Sep 2009), and Dragon (Issue 371 - Jan 2009) all for Dungeons & Dragons (4th Edition). Late addition... Stormwrack (3E).

Other Products

The Legends of Sinbad from Game Smiths LLC was released to Kickstarter backers this week in spectacular fashion. The PDF delivered about 14 months late. Citing issues with artists, websites, layout, and their publisher, they've issued partial refunds to backers who ordered print copies. The company is now dissolved, so it doesn't appear the PDF will be released to the public. (Source: RPGG user cjbowser)

Remember all of those releases last week? Yeah... let's call this week the regression to the mean.

New releases at your FLGS

Not wanting to leave this space blank, I'll mention that Paizo Publishing and Wizkids (II) have released the Pathfinder Iconic Heroes Box 1 miniatures.

New PDF releases

D&D Releases this week: Psionic Power (4E), Player's Handbook 3 (D&D 4e) (4E), Dungeon (Issue 167 - Jun 2009) (4E), Dungeon (Issue 168 - Jul 2009), and Dragon (Issue 370 - Dec 2008).

Other Products

Autarch has put their Adventurer Conqueror King System materials on DriveThru/RPGNow as Print-on-Demand. New copies will be available in distribution from Studio 2 Publishing. (Thanks to RPGG user Bobloblah for the tip!)

While we don't normally mention current Kickstarters here, I'll make an exception for Karl Larsson's Scavengers. Check out more information in this thread: [Kickstarter] - Scavengers - A quick, easy, humorous RPG about exploring derelict space ships .

Speaking of threads, don't forget about the 2015 Golden Geeks voting here. Thinking about the 2016 Golden Geeks? Take a look at my poll for the Most Anticipated RPG of 2015.
