With Pathfinder, Impressions and Small Press "new" releases, it's one of the bigger weeks of the year so far.

New releases at your FLGS

Paizo Publishing is in stores with more Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Pathfinder #106: For Queen & Empire, Inner Sea Intrigue, Magic Tactics Toolbox, Ire of the Storm, and related accessories. (Source: Leisure Games, Steve Donohue)

Remember when Shabbath was lidded? AA#33: The Halls of Lidless Shabbath is the newest release from Expeditious Retreat Press for Old School Reference and Index Compilation (OSRIC). I don't think being lidless has improved her disposition. (Source: Impressions)

What's that on store shelves? Towers Two and World of the Lost have been released into distribution from Lamentations of the Flame Princess (for Lamentations of the Flame Princess, of course). (Source: Impressions)

In the You-Never-Know department, several "small press" games have been spotted at Leisure Games. Most of these are Kickstarter projects that Leisure Games backed at the retail level or perhaps they special ordered. Most have been "released" before (none have 2016 dates in the database), but this is the first time I've seen them in a store (YMMV): Microscope Explorer from Lame Mage Productions, Downfall from Caroline Hobbs, The Colors of the Sky: Bonus Material for Golden Sky Stories from Star Line Publishing, Ryuutama: Natural Fantasy Role Play from Kotodama Heavy Industries, and Open Anime from Battlefield Press, Inc.. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: G2: The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl (1E), PC2: Top Ballista (Basic), S3: Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (1E), Tarus's Banquet (3.5; s's ?!?), and The Temple of Redcliff.

(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!)

If two days late is two dollars short, why wasn't I told math and money would be involved?

New releases at your FLGS

Into the Deep from Monte Cook Games for Numenera is now in stores. This is a sourebook about what lies beneath the waves of the The Ninth World. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

Funded by Kickstarter, the Earthdawn Gamemaster's Guide (4th Edition) from FASA is now on store shelves. (Source: Alliance)

The newest release from Frog God Games is the The Northlands Saga Complete Player's Guide for both Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Swords & Wizardry. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

True-ish story. This Dwarf holds me hostage for two days in a storage locker. He'll only tell me that I need to hang tight for news from Lars. Turns out that SRM06-03: Ancient Rumblings is now available for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs. If you listen close, you'll hear me banging on the door in a future episode of Storage Wars.

D&D PDFs this week: MC01: Monstrous Compendium (Volume One) (2E), MC02: Monstrous Compendium (Volume Two) (2E), The Crumbling Hall of the Frost Giant Jarl (3E), and The Sea Witch (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!)
