Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!

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).

(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!)

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.
