Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!

I've had a few questions recently that I thought I would address. Your mileage may vary on what I list as a new release at your FLGS.

I concentrate my efforts on titles that are in distribution through Alliance (US), Impressions (US), and Leisure Games (a FLGS in the UK). Some stores use other distributors, so I might miss them when they are first released. Alliance's New Releases appear to be manually produced, so it's possible they might not feature a title. Print on demand, crowd sourced, non-English language, and small press releases largely don't hit my radar until they appear on one of my three sources.

Well... unless Leisure Games picks them up. I like using Leisure Games as a source since - for some products - they lead US distribution by a week or so. They also back crowd sourced projects at retail levels, support small press games, and stock European releases.

I try to note when I think something unusual has happened, but that's completely hit or miss.

Let's get to the new releases this week...

New releases at your FLGS

It's a big release week for Cubicle 7 Entertainment: Journeys & Maps for The One Ring; The Silurian Age: Dinosaurs and Spaceships for Doctor Who Roleplaying Game; The Lure of Venus for Rocket Age; Kuro Tensei for Kuro; World War Cthulhu London for World War Cthulhu; and Heroes of Magnamund for Lone Wolf Adventure Game. (Source: Leisure Games)

The Design Mechanism is in stores with their latest D100 house system: Mythras and Mythras Imperative (a 34 page primer). (Source: Leisure Games)

Accursed for Savage Worlds has been expanded by Melior Via, LLC with the World of Morden. (Source: Alliance)

Osprey Publishing is in stores with Empire of Imagination, the biography of Gary Gygax. This was originally published last year by Bloomsbury Publishing Plc. (Source: Alliance)


New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Champions of Mystara: Heroes of the Princess Ark (Basic), FRC1: Ruins of Adventure (1e), WG10: Child's Play (2e), and WG8: Fate of Istus (1e/2e).

(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!)

Oh my.

I knew a week like this one was on the horizon, but I didn't expect 20+ FLGS releases. Let's get started...

 
New releases at your FLGS

What's this? A Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) release? Storm King's Thunder is the newest adventure from Wizards of the Coast which will take characters from level 1 to 11+. (Source: Leisure Games)

From Paizo Publishing, the next batch of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game releases are: Pathfinder #109: In Search of Sanity and the Haunted Heroes Handbook. (Source: Alliance)

Sometimes I'm quite surprised when I see items hitting stores for the first time. Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls has been out there for awhile, but this latest edition of Flying Buffalo, Inc. (FBI)'s Tunnels & Trolls is just now hitting distribution. (Source: Alliance)

Mongoose Publishing has two new introductory releases for Traveller (Mongoose): High and Dry and Marooned on Marduk. (Source: Leisure Games)

Need more 5e Game System Product (D&D 5th Edition Compatible)? Kobold Press is in stores with the Book of Lairs and the Tome of Beasts. (Source: Alliance)

Funded by Kickstarter and featuring contributions from our own Yohann Delalande, Polaris (French RPG, 3rd Edition) is now available in English. Black Book Editions has released POLARIS RPG - Core Rulebook: 1, POLARIS RPG - Core Rulebook: 2 (combined in a slipcase), Equinox (Polaris), and related accessories. (Source: Alliance)

Posthuman Studios has brought Eclipse Phase to Fate Core with Eclipse Phase: Transhumanity's Fate. (Source: Alliance)

Lamentations of the Flame Princess is in stores with two new - imagine that - Lamentations of the Flame Princess adventures: England Upturn'd and The Cursed Chateau (Expanded Edition). (Source: Impressions)

Expeditious Retreat Press has released A Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe Third Edition and the Old School Reference and Index Compilation (OSRIC) adventure Advanced Adventures #34: The Crocodile's Tear. (Source: Impressions)

Goodman Games had a ridiculous number of new releases at Gen Con, and they have started to hit distribution: Fifth Edition Fantasy #10: The Castle in the Sky, AnaheimCrawl (for Xcrawl and Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game), and the Gen Con 2016 Program Guide (Goodman Games Annual). (Source: Impressions)

It seems like Modiphius Entertainment makes this column more weeks than not. This time it's the English version of Mutant: Genlab Alfa for Mutant: År Noll. (Source: Impressions)

We all knew it was going to happen sooner than later. The End of the World: Revolt of the Machines is the newest release in The End of the World series of RPGs from Fantasy Flight Games. (Source: Leisure Games)

For Savage Worlds and from Battlefield Press, Inc., Distant Vistas (Savage Worlds Edition) expands the Eldritch Skies universe. (Source: Leisure Games)

I made it to the end! The final release this week is Criticorum Discord for FASA's Fading Suns (Revised). (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: A Great Upheaval (5e), Forgotten Realms Campaign Set (1e), M2: Vengeance of Alphaks (Basic), REF5: Lords of Darkness (1e), and The Vilhon Reach (2e).

Let's catch up, shall we?

New releases at your FLGS

From Fantasy Flight Games and a galaxy far, far, away, it's the Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Beginner Game arriving on store shelves. There are also some related accessories... (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

The newest Paizo Publishing Pathfinder Roleplaying Game releases are Gallows of Madness, Legacy of Dragons, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook Pocket Edition, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary Pocket Edition, Horror Adventures, Pathfinder #108: Hell Comes to Westcrown (not Frogtown), and related accessories. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games, Steve Donohue)

For Shadowrun (5th Edition) and from Catalyst Game Labs, it's the Seattle Sprawl Box Set. (Source: Leisure Games, probably Lars)

Last but not least, Chaosium is serving up S. Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors for Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition). My buddy picked it up at Gen Con, and it's very... well, pretty isn't the right word, is it? (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs the last two weeks: The Thunder Below (3.5), Force of Nature (3.5), Dungeons & Dragons Expert Set (Basic), Dungeons & Dragons Set 3: Companion Rules (Basic), War of Dragons (3.5), Dungeons & Dragons Set 4: Master Rules (Basic), Dungeons & Dragons Set 5: Immortals Rules (Basic), and An Icy Heart (3.5)

Yeah, I'm a day late. You backed a process, you know.

New releases at your FLGS

From Catalyst Game Labs, Howling Shadows has been released for Shadowrun (5th Edition) just in time for Gen Con. And, no, I still haven't forgiven Lars for the chupacabra incident. (Source: Leisure Games)

Green Ronin Publishing is in stores with two very different products. First, there's the Dragon Age Game Master's Kit, Revised for Dragon Age. Next, there's Cinema and Sorcery RPG Film Book; this book covers the movies that might have influenced your favorite Fantasy RPGs. (Source: Leisure Games)

Last but not least, three small press games have popped on New Release lists. From Bully Pulpit Games, it's Predator Cards for The Warren; it includes 31 Move and 20 Predator cards. From Vajra Enterprises, it's This is a Dark Ride, Second Edition for In Dark Alleys. Goblin Quest also popped on the list; this RPG features adventure from luminaries in the hobby such as Meguey Baker, Robin D. Laws, Kenneth Hite, Rob Heinsoo, and others... (Source: Leisure Games, so keep in mind these may not be quite new, may be Kickstarter rewards, etc... In other words, YMMV.)

New PDF releases

So, some Fairies came to our door. Neat. That was until I realized they were bearing a message from Lars. Evidently, the alternate Fantasy (High Fantasy), Mythology / Folklore setting for Shadowrun (5th Edition) - Court of Shadows - is now available in PDF. Anyone have any Seelie repellent?

D&D PDFs this week: A Hero's Tale (2E), Black Rain (3E) (wasn't that the Tay Zonday song? Chocolate Rain, sorry), and AC10: Bestiary of Dragons and Giants (Basic - check out the fresh off the presses review "Falls short of iconic, but it has its moments").

While you are out playing Pokemon Go, maybe you'll want to stop to check out the New Releases this week?

Hang on... there's a Bulbasaur in my front yard...

New releases at your FLGS

You know what's scary? Gen Con starts in two weeks. OH, and Dracula! Pelgrane Press is in stores with EDOM Field Manual, The EDOM Files, and The Thrill of Dracula all for Night's Black Agents. (Source: Impressions)

Modiphius Entertainment has three new releases for Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game: Dark Symmetry Campaign Book, Dark Soul Source Book, and Bauhaus Source Book. (Source: Impressions)

Speaking of Drac, maybe he'll make a guest appearance in Leagues of Gothic Horror the newest Ubiquity Roleplaying System book from Triple Ace Games Ltd. (Source: Alliance)

Nine Dragons has released the Honour Role-playing Game Core Rulebook just in time for Gen Con. This new RPG "takes players into the city of Heung Gong, a modern metropolis of high-tech, dangerous gangs, multi-millionaires, multiple homicides, the harsh reality of life, and the unreality of the Inhuman and The Spaces Between." (Source: Alliance)

Gen Con is only a few weeks away. Are the publishers showing their hands or biding their time?

New releases at your FLGS

From Paizo Publishing, on a one week delay from last week's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game's releases, it's Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw. (Source: Leisure Games)

You can never have enough Rifts, right? The Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity is the newest sourcebook from Palladium Books. (Source: Leisure Games)

Funded by Kickstarter and now entering distribution, Pinnacle Entertainment Group has released Rippers Resurrected: Player's Guide, Rippers Resurrected: Game Master's Handbook, Rippers Resurrected GM Screen with Adventure, and Frightful Expeditions. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

I'm scratching my head on this one... I thought HeroQuest Glorantha released last year, but maybe the Chaosium/Moon Design Publications restructuring delayed the release into distribution? (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

The Design Mechanism has released Classic Fantasy for RQ6/Mythras. This brings old school dungeon crawling to the party. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Ill Wind in Friezford (3E), Stone Dead (3E), A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords (1E), BSOLO: Ghost of Lion Castle (Basic), and MC04: Monstrous Compendium Dragonlance Appendix (2E).
