The amazing Vestige wrote his last Coming Soon article in December, 2014. Nearly five years later, I'm reviving it...

Kinda.

Several years ago, an anonymous benevolent geek gifted me with a subscription to Game Trade Magazine. GTM is the house publication for Alliance Game Distributors. I've used it a bit here and there - mostly for Gen Con releases - but I haven't used it enough. It's perfect for a Coming Soon article.

Vestige's articles were quality. This article will be quantity. I'll list (yes, list) every RPG product in GTM each month. There are a few things to keep in mind. Since GTM is a print publication, the info is dated. Some items may already be released; some may never be released. Some items may be new to Alliance but not very new otherwise.

If an item is in the database, I'll simply link it with the GTM month of release if it's included. If the item isn't in the database, I may also include the RPG if appropriate.

As The Cars said, let's go.
