Very slow week to start May... As we head to convention season, it will be interesting to see if things pick up or if new releases are targeted for the shows.

New releases at your FLGS

Curse of Strahd Dungeon Master's Screen has been released for Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) from Gale Force Nine, LLC. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

Our own Karl Larsson and Mutant Chiron Games has released Strangeton House at OBS. This adventure for The Strange is set in a British 1920 aristocratic household which is under attack by an alien super-agent.

D&D PDFs this week: The Rogues Gallery (AD&D 1e) (1E), DMGR8: Sages & Specialists (2E), and WGM1: Border Watch (2E).

It's a pretty big week of releases from some of the heavier hitters in the industry. See anything you like?

New releases at your FLGS

It's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game release week. This time Paizo Publishing is releasing Pathfinder #105: The Inferno Gate, Armor Master's Handbook, and Heaven Unleashed (along with related accessories). (Source: Leisure Games, Steve Donohue)

Hitting distribution for the first time, it's Third Eye Games' Part-Time Gods of Fate which features art from RPGG's own Melissa Gay. (Source: Alliance)

Cubicle 7 Entertainment has cranked up the time machine and delivered The Tenth Doctor Sourcebook, The Eleventh Doctor Sourcebook, and All of Time and Space Volume 1 (for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space of course) onto store shelves. (Source: Leisure Games)

Green Ronin Publishing had a clear objective this month. A Song of Ice and Fire Narrator's Kit, Revised Edition, Mutants and Masterminds Game Masters Kit (Revised), and Fantasy Age Game Master's Kit have all been released into distribution. (Source: Leisure Games)

Wyrd Miniatures continues its strong, recent support of Through the Breach. Penny Dreadful: Nythera is a Penny Dreadful that will span four or more "epic" adventures. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

An ork from Seattle knocked on my door. I knew he was from Seattle since he was wearing a Sounders scarf. Anyway, he tells me that Seattle Sprawl Digital Box is now available (at the Battleshop and OBS) in PDF for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs. I tell him to say hi to Lars.

D&D PDFs this week: Cave of the Spiders (3.5), CM7: The Tree of Life (Basic), Tower in the Ice (3.5), and M1: Into the Maelstrom (Basic)

There's a nice variety of releases this week, and one that marks the end of a line...

New releases at your FLGS

The last book for Atlas Games' Ars Magica (5th Edition) is now in stores. Dies Irae - A Book of Wrathful Days presents four different great threats to Mythic Europe. Will your covenant survive? (Source: Alliance)

Here's one that wasn't on my radar... Beyonder is a new RPG that's debuting the core book Beyonder and Imbelnhi's Bestiary in distribution. From Flying Nightbear Games, this Fantasy RPG features unique races and aims for a "low-heroic" tone. (Source: Alliance)

Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection debuted at Goodman Games' booth at Gen Con 2015 but is just now hitting distribution in a variety of formats. (Source: Impressions)

Modiphius Entertainment has really been pumping out the releases lately. This week's batch features Secrets of the DUST (an Achtung! Cthulhu sourcebook for Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition), and DUST Adventures Roleplaying Game); the long awaited Assault on the Mountains of Madness (an Achtung! Cthulhu campaign for Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition); and Symbaroum Core Rulebook (the English translation of the Swedish Fantasy RPG - also from Järnringen). (Source: Impressions)

Pelgrane Press is in stores with High Magic and Low Cunning (along with a map folio) for 13th Age. This presents 45 different encounters for your game. They've also released Seven Wonders which is collection of seven story games from UK-based designers. (Source: Impressions)

The newest release in distribution for Castles & Crusades is Shadows of a Green Sky. This is being billed as an "Open and Play" product that contains all the rules need to play the adventure. I believe this was initially released at Free RPG Day 2015. From Troll Lord Games, of course! (Source: Impressions)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: DA1: Adventures in Blackmoor (Basic), Fast Play Game: Eye of the Wyvern (2E), Fang, Beak, and Claw (3E), Shoals of Intrigue (3E), and WG5: Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventure (1E).

(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!)

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!)

A day late and (many) dollar(s) short... Are you going to be short on money after seeing this week's New Releases?

All of the FLGS releases this week come from Impressions. Keep in mind that I'm taking an educated guess when they will be in stores. Your mileage will probably vary.

New releases at your FLGS

From Modiphius Entertainment, it's two new adventure releases for Fragged Empire: Let Sleeping Gods Lie and Genetic Spectres.

If we were playing poker, I'd have two pairs this week. Troll Lord Games is in stores with the adventure C5: Falls the Divide and the setting sourcebook Codex of Aihrde Expansion: The Darkenfold.

New PDF releases

So, I ran into a Mr. Johnson at the gas station yesterday. He told me that PM001: Killing Pawn has been released in PDF by Catalyst Game Labs for Shadowrun (5th Edition). As he was leaving, he whispered "Lars sent me."

D&D PDFs this week: Legend of the Silver Skeleton (3.5), The Ministry of Winds (3E), Player's Guide to Faerûn (3.5), and SJS1: Goblins' Return (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!)

If there's only one release at your FLGS... but it's for D&D 5E... does that make this week a lamb or a lion?

New releases at your FLGS

Wizards of the Coast is in stores with Curse of Strahd for Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition). Are you planning on returning to Ravenloft? (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

The microscopic drone that just landed on my desk shouted that the Shadowrun (5th Edition) releases Corporate Soucebook Market Panic and the adventure Serrated Edge: Denver 1 are now available in PDF from OBS. Must have been Lars by way of Catalyst Game Labs!

D&D PDFs this week: Ravenloft (3E), Monster Compendium: Monsters of Faerûn (3E), The Ghosts of Aniel (not Ariel the Little Mermaid - that would be weird; 3E), and House of Harpies (3E).
