    There's only one print release this week, but it's a doozy.

    New releases at your FLGS

    Fantasy Flight Games has released Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game 30th Anniversary Edition. This is a reprint of West End Games' Star Wars (WEG Original Edition).

    New PDF releases on DriveThru

    The reissues from Steve Jackson Games this week are all about Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen, Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items, Dungeon Fantasy Traps, and Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men.

    Atlas Games has four new PDFs for Unknown Armies (3rd Edition): Unknown Armies Campaign Starter Kit: Karmic Ties and Fifth Wheels, Unknown Armies Campaign Starter Kit: Derby Girls Destroy DC, Unknown Armies Campaign Starter Kit: Heroin Highway, and Unknown Armies Campaign Starter Kit: The Violence Inherent in the System.

    Modiphius Entertainment (in association with Mindjammer Press and Studio Deadcrows) has released the PDF for Capharnaüm: L’Héritage des Dragons. This 2007 French RPG that blends the flavors of Arabian Nights, Argonauts, and Crusaders into one setting has been translated into English for the first time.

    Rodney Thompson's Dusk City Outlaws has caught my eye. There's a new adventure available from Scratchpad Publishing - The Zombie Job.

    Being a reporter is hard work. With bottles of alcohol at our sides, we pour through millions of files looking for the choice tidbits. We often find things that are interesting, but they end up on the cutting room floor. Not today. From Genesis of Legend Publishing and Jason Pitre, it's Lonely Timbers. This is a RPG about lumberjacks in the 19th century.

    As always, let me know what I missed in the comments. TIMBER!

    We're into (Northern Hemisphere) Summer, and that means Con season. Publishers seem to be working overtime getting their products ready for sale... In other words, it's another big week.

    New releases at your FLGS

    It's Paizo Publishing release week. For July, that means: Starfinder #006: Empire of Bones, Planar Adventures, Distant Realms, Pathfinder #131: The Reaper's Right Hand, GameMastery Flip-Mat: Pub Crawl (reissue?), and Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Bigger Village. The first is for Starfinder Roleplaying Game, and the rest are Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. (Source: Leisure Games)

    Fantasy Flight Games has released Knights of Fate for Star Wars: Force and Destiny. (Source: Leisure Games)

    Modiphius Entertainment is in stores with some of their third-party lines. From UFO Press, it's the Apocalypse World Engine rpg Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition. Design Ministries' Fragged Empire has three new releases: Fragged Aeternum, Fragged Seas, and Fragged Kingdom. Finally, it's the Fria Ligan Mutant: År Noll campaign Mutant: Mechatron.

    New PDF releases for DriveThru

    Wizards of the Coast has one new PDF release this time: Castles for 2E.

    The well-supported Shadow of the Demon Lord has another product from Schwalb Entertainment - In the Emperor's Secret Service.

    Khepera Publishing has released MYTHIC D6 Revised & Expanded.

    On the heels of the rules preview last week, Ulisses Spiele has released the Free RPG Day quickstart and adventure for Wrath & Glory - Blessings Unheralded.

    I don't often see Hârn PDFs, but this week there are four from Columbia Games: Atlas Map J2: Orbaal - Lorkin - Gedan; Gedan Earthmaster Site; Ivinia Atlas Map D6: Ilby, Rogna; and Ilby Vathran.

    Last, and certainly least, I mean no one cares about it. Right? Masks of Nyarlathotep (5th edition) is now available for Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) from Chaosium.
