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").

(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!)

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)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: M4: Five Coins For A Kingdom (Basic) and Vecna Reborn (2E). Watch the comments for any additional releases 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!)

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).

I've been overusing the phrase "small but mighty" this year, but it definitely applies this week...

New releases at your FLGS

From Chaosium, Keeper Rulebook for Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) has finally hit distribution. Look for it on store shelves soon! (Source: Leisure Games)

The newest releases for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game from Paizo Publishing are Path of the Hellknight and Spymaster's Handbook. (Source: Alliance)

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).

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. SWF41: 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).

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!)

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)

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.
