    Busy busy. No time for intros!

    New releases at your FLGS

    Modiphius Entertainment is in stores this week with six new releases: for Mindjammer (2nd Edition) - Mindjammer Player's Guide, The Mindjammer Companion, The Core Worlds, and Children of Orion: The Venu Sourcebook; for Infinity the Roleplaying Game - Adventures in the Human Sphere; and for Symbaroum - Symbaroum: Abilities & Powers. (Source: Impressions)

    Troll Lord Games has released adventures for 5th Edition Adventure: A Lion in the Ropes (5E) (5e Game System Product (D&D 5th Edition Compatible)) and By Shadow of Night (C&C) (Castles & Crusades). (Source: Impressions)

    If your Shadowrun (5th Edition) game has too many light terrors, you might be interested in Dark Terrors. It's a new bestiary. (Source: Leisure Games, Noble Knight)

    Last but not least, the latest Chaosium Dark Cult Games Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) book is The Star on the Shore. I'm sure this adventure is like a stroll through a Spring meadow. (Source: Leisure Games)

    New PDF releases

    Le 7ème Cercle continues their PDF re-releases in English. This time it's Qin: L'Art de la Guerre, Mythes et Animaux Fabuleux, and Qin: The Warring States for Qin: Les Royaumes Combattants; Uppsala, Kings of the Sea, The Nine Worlds, and Yggdrasill Core Rules for Yggdrasill. (Source: DriveThru)

    A quick update regarding my sources...

    Alliance: The public facing "New Releases" page seems to be working, but it's essentially a pre-order page now. I'm not interested in reporting pre-orders.

    Impressions: Rock solid, but only covers select publishers and ships once per month.

    Leisure Games: Solid but includes things in their new releases that aren't in distribution (Kickstarters, IPR restocks). YMMV.

    I think most things are being captured by Leisure Games - eventually. I've started to track items on Noble Knight Games' new release list, but my experience in the past has been that they are even more all-over-the-map than Leisure Games.

    snore

    Okay, let's get to it.

    New releases at your FLGS

    Petersen's Abominations is now available from Chaosium. It contains five modern one-shot adventures for Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition). (Source: Leisure Games)

    Rogue Games, Inc. has released an adventure and sourcebook for Colonial Gothic (1st - 3rd Editions) - The Journey to Norumbega. (Source: Leisure Games)

    The last in-store release this week is Awaken: Dark Fantasy Roleplaying Game from Studio 2 Publishing and The Games Collective. This fantasy RPG is influenced by Slavic and Mediterranean folklore. (Source: Leisure Games)

    New PDF releases

    Torchbearer Sagas: Fearless and Freebooting from Mordite Press
    Reach Adventures 5: Borderland Run from Mongoose Publishing
    Le 7ème Cercle has released (re-released?) Kuro and Keltia (core books and some supplements) in English. These used to be published by Cubicle 7. I assume that these are identical to the C7 versions; if you know for sure, let us know!

    You know the drill. If I missed something, let everyone know in the comments.
