We close out June with another small but mighty list.

New releases at your FLGS

From Evil Hat Productions, it's Do: Fate of the Flying Temple and Young Centurions. Fred Hicks also reported that Venture City, Fate Worlds: Worlds Take Flight, and Fate Worlds: Worlds Rise Up have been released. I haven't seen them hit my sources yet, but I think we can trust Fred... (Source: Alliance, Fred Hicks)

The newest release for The Cypher System is Gods of the Fall. This setting book from Monte Cook Games details a fantasy world where the gods have died. Or have they? (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG is finally available in PDF from Arion Games. It took a long time to dot all the i's and cross all the t's. (Thanks to Sam - aka Bifford - for the tip!)

D&D/WotC PDFs this week: DragonLance: Fifth Age Dramatic Adventure Game (SAGA), Heroes of Steel (SAGA), Shrine of the Feathered Serpent (3.5), and Thicker Than Water (3E).

(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!)

Any week with Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Traveller releases is a big week, right? Small, but mighty?

New releases at your FLGS

From Cubicle 7 Entertainment, the latest release for The One Ring is Horse-lords of Rohan. As you might expect, this details Rohan and its surrounding area and introduces all things related to horses (including mounted combat). (Source: Leisure Games)

Fantasy Flight Games is back on store shelves with another release for Star Wars: Force and Destiny. Savage Spirits is a Seekers sourcebook and features wilderness survival. (Source: Alliance)

Traveller (Mongoose) is now available in a new edition. Traveller Core Rulebook and Traveller Referee's Screen are now in stores courtesy of Mongoose Publishing. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

Return to the Ice for Fiasco is available as Pay What You Want on OBS. This playset from Bully Pulpit Games is a followup to The Ice with all proceeds going to the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) charity (which helps to keep people safe from mines and unexploded ordinance around the world). (Thanks to Sam aka Bifford for the tip!)

So we're just recovered from the chupacabra disaster from last week when Lars sends a cyber elf bomb (that's a thing, right?) through the mail to announce the release of SRM06-04: Tick Tock - a mission book for Shadowrun (5th Edition). I'm not sure how I got on Lars' bad side, but there's cyber elf everywhere. (Source: Lars)

D&D PDFs this week: The Tempter, The Artifact, The Donjon (all three for 5E; further adventures in Misty Fortunes and Absent Hearts), Road to Oblivion (3.5), Self-Fulfilling Prophecy? (3E), H1: Bloodstone Pass (1E and Battlesystem), HWA3: Hollow World: Nightstorm (Basic), S2: White Plume Mountain (1E), and Ravenloft Player's Handbook (3.5).

(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

Exalted Third Edition has been available on OBS for a few weeks as print-on-demand and PDF. From Onyx Path Publishing, of course. (Thanks to Sam aka Bifford for the tip!)

It's another light week, but convention season is nigh upon us. Things should pick up.

New releases at your FLGS

Frog God Games is in stores with the Pathfinder System Compatible Product Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms (Pathfinder). (Source: Alliance)

Market Panic for Shadowrun (5th Edition) has been released into distribution by Catalyst Game Labs. As Lars' drone told me back in March, this is a Corporate sourcebook. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games, Lars)

Osprey Publishing has released another Generic / Universal book in their Dark Osprey line. Dark Osprey 11: The Cthulhu Wars: The United States' Battles Against the Mythos presents the history of the struggle between the US and Cthulhu. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

You know what's not fun? When Lars sends a chupacabra to your house to announce the PDF release of Howling Shadows - a critter sourcebook - for Shadowrun (5th Edition) by Catalyst Game Labs. Not cool Lars.

D&D PDFs this week: A Harvest of Evil (3E), S1: Tomb of Horrors (1E), To Quell the Rising Storm (3.5), and DA3: City of the Gods (Basic).

(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!)

With Pathfinder, Impressions and Small Press "new" releases, it's one of the bigger weeks of the year so far.

New releases at your FLGS

Paizo Publishing is in stores with more Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Pathfinder #106: For Queen & Empire, Inner Sea Intrigue, Magic Tactics Toolbox, Ire of the Storm, and related accessories. (Source: Leisure Games, Steve Donohue)

Remember when Shabbath was lidded? AA#33: The Halls of Lidless Shabbath is the newest release from Expeditious Retreat Press for Old School Reference and Index Compilation (OSRIC). I don't think being lidless has improved her disposition. (Source: Impressions)

What's that on store shelves? Towers Two and World of the Lost have been released into distribution from Lamentations of the Flame Princess (for Lamentations of the Flame Princess, of course). (Source: Impressions)

In the You-Never-Know department, several "small press" games have been spotted at Leisure Games. Most of these are Kickstarter projects that Leisure Games backed at the retail level or perhaps they special ordered. Most have been "released" before (none have 2016 dates in the database), but this is the first time I've seen them in a store (YMMV): Microscope Explorer from Lame Mage Productions, Downfall from Caroline Hobbs, The Colors of the Sky: Bonus Material for Golden Sky Stories from Star Line Publishing, Ryuutama: Natural Fantasy Role Play from Kotodama Heavy Industries, and Open Anime from Battlefield Press, Inc.. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: G2: The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl (1E), PC2: Top Ballista (Basic), S3: Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (1E), Tarus's Banquet (3.5; s's ?!?), and The Temple of Redcliff.

(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 two days late is two dollars short, why wasn't I told math and money would be involved?

New releases at your FLGS

Into the Deep from Monte Cook Games for Numenera is now in stores. This is a sourebook about what lies beneath the waves of the The Ninth World. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

Funded by Kickstarter, the Earthdawn Gamemaster's Guide (4th Edition) from FASA is now on store shelves. (Source: Alliance)

The newest release from Frog God Games is the The Northlands Saga Complete Player's Guide for both Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Swords & Wizardry. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

True-ish story. This Dwarf holds me hostage for two days in a storage locker. He'll only tell me that I need to hang tight for news from Lars. Turns out that SRM06-03: Ancient Rumblings is now available for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs. If you listen close, you'll hear me banging on the door in a future episode of Storage Wars.

D&D PDFs this week: MC01: Monstrous Compendium (Volume One) (2E), MC02: Monstrous Compendium (Volume Two) (2E), The Crumbling Hall of the Frost Giant Jarl (3E), and The Sea Witch (3E).

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)

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.
