Did you watch the Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, a bowl of cereal, or did you just watch this space for the New Releases?

New releases at your FLGS

Fantasy Flight Games is riding this Star Wars "fad" with another new release for Star Wars: Age of Rebellion. Lead By Example is a sourcebook for Commanders. (Source: Alliance)

You know what would come in handy most days? A Cosmic Handbook. This one won't unravel the mysteries of the cosmos, but it will give Mutants & Masterminds (3rd Edition) players a blueprint for running their superhero campaigns in space. From Green Ronin Publishing, or course! (Source: Alliance)

Pelgrane Press is in stores with 13th Age Gamemaster Screen and Resource Book (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

I know folks are rabid for anything that's a 5e Game System Product (D&D 5th Edition Compatible). Primeval Thule Campaign Setting (5E) is now available from Sasquatch Game Studio. It's possible that this is not in distribution yet (LG might have backed the KS), but the previous versions of this sourcebook eventually get there. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

Third Eye Games keeps rolling along. The Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition is now available in PDF from OBS. This new edition (formerly Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade) has a new system and expanded setting. It will be available in print soon. (Thanks to Jacob for the tip!)

D&D PDFs this week: Wizards Presents: Worlds and Monsters (4E), The Unwavering Path (3.5), Supplement II: Blackmoor (0E; from the premium reprint), Dungeons & Dragons Gazetteer (3E), and Bad Light (3.5E; not Bud Light as I originally read it).

(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

In the "You Never Know" department, it looks like Leisure Games has received a large order from IPR: Golden Sky Stories: Heart-Warming Role-Playing, Spirit of 77, Wide World of 77, Faerie Skies, I Want to be an Awesome Robot, Blood & Honor, Cat: Revised, The Aegis Project, Nefertiti Overdrive, and The Last Days of Anglekite. I know some of these are not even close to being a new release, but they probably haven't been mentioned in What's New? either. If they hit Alliance or Impressions, I'll mention them again.

Do the new releases this week feel like Groundhog Day? I don't think so...

New releases at your FLGS

Fantasy Flight Games is in stores this week with Enemies Beyond for Dark Heresy (2nd Edition) and The End of the World: Alien Invasion for The End of the World. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

Here's a cool story... Fall of Magic by Heart of the Deernicorn was funded by Kickstarter and is now in stores. This collaborative storytelling game has some impressive components and non-standard packaging. It's neat to find this in distribution. (Source: Alliance)

Pinnacle Entertainment Group is in stores with more Savage Worlds Lankhmar / Nehwon. Lankhmar: Savage Tales of the Thieves Guild offers 14 adventures. (Source: Alliance)

Goodman Games is back on store shelves with Fifty Fantastic Functions for the D50 (pretty self-explanatory) and DCC #084.2: Synthetic Swordsmen of the Purple Planet for Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Get your D50 before there's a shortage! (Source: Impressions)

Funded by Kickstarter, Modiphius Entertainment has delivered Fragged Empire and Fragged Empire: Antagonist Archive 1 first to backers and now to stores. This is a post post-apocalyptic RPG with its own system. (Source: Impressions)

Has anyone out there found the The Lost City of Gaxmoor (C&C)? If so, please let the Queen know. This Castles & Crusades adventure setting from Troll Lord Games will take adventurers from first to tenth level. (Source: Impressions)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Wizards Presents: Races and Classes (4E), Supplement I: Greyhawk (0E; the booklet from the premium reprint), Manifesting: A Tale (3E), and Living Greyhawk Gazetteer (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!)
