Very slow week to start May... As we head to convention season, it will be interesting to see if things pick up or if new releases are targeted for the shows.

New PDF releases

Our own Karl Larsson and Mutant Chiron Games has released Strangeton House at OBS. This adventure for The Strange is set in a British 1920 aristocratic household which is under attack by an alien super-agent.

D&D PDFs this week: The Rogues Gallery (AD&D 1e) (1E), DMGR8: Sages & Specialists (2E), and WGM1: Border Watch (2E).

It's a pretty big week of releases from some of the heavier hitters in the industry. See anything you like?

New releases at your FLGS

It's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game release week. This time Paizo Publishing is releasing Pathfinder #105: The Inferno Gate, Armor Master's Handbook, and Heaven Unleashed (along with related accessories). (Source: Leisure Games, Steve Donohue)

Hitting distribution for the first time, it's Third Eye Games' Part-Time Gods of Fate which features art from RPGG's own Melissa Gay. (Source: Alliance)

Cubicle 7 Entertainment has cranked up the time machine and delivered The Tenth Doctor Sourcebook, The Eleventh Doctor Sourcebook, and All of Time and Space Volume 1 (for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space of course) onto store shelves. (Source: Leisure Games)

Green Ronin Publishing had a clear objective this month. A Song of Ice and Fire Narrator's Kit, Revised Edition, Mutants and Masterminds Game Masters Kit (Revised), and Fantasy Age Game Master's Kit have all been released into distribution. (Source: Leisure Games)

Wyrd Miniatures continues its strong, recent support of Through the Breach. Penny Dreadful: Nythera is a Penny Dreadful that will span four or more "epic" adventures. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

An ork from Seattle knocked on my door. I knew he was from Seattle since he was wearing a Sounders scarf. Anyway, he tells me that Seattle Sprawl Digital Box is now available (at the Battleshop and OBS) in PDF for Shadowrun (5th Edition) from Catalyst Game Labs. I tell him to say hi to Lars.

D&D PDFs this week: Cave of the Spiders (3.5), CM7: The Tree of Life (Basic), Tower in the Ice (3.5), and M1: Into the Maelstrom (Basic)

(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!)

Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!

There's a nice variety of releases this week, and one that marks the end of a line...

New releases at your FLGS

The last book for Atlas Games' Ars Magica (5th Edition) is now in stores. Dies Irae - A Book of Wrathful Days presents four different great threats to Mythic Europe. Will your covenant survive? (Source: Alliance)

Here's one that wasn't on my radar... Beyonder is a new RPG that's debuting the core book Beyonder and Imbelnhi's Bestiary in distribution. From Flying Nightbear Games, this Fantasy RPG features unique races and aims for a "low-heroic" tone. (Source: Alliance)

Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection debuted at Goodman Games' booth at Gen Con 2015 but is just now hitting distribution in a variety of formats. (Source: Impressions)

Modiphius Entertainment has really been pumping out the releases lately. This week's batch features Secrets of the DUST (an Achtung! Cthulhu sourcebook for Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition), and DUST Adventures Roleplaying Game); the long awaited Assault on the Mountains of Madness (an Achtung! Cthulhu campaign for Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition); and Symbaroum Core Rulebook (the English translation of the Swedish Fantasy RPG - also from Järnringen). (Source: Impressions)

Pelgrane Press is in stores with High Magic and Low Cunning (along with a map folio) for 13th Age. This presents 45 different encounters for your game. They've also released Seven Wonders which is collection of seven story games from UK-based designers. (Source: Impressions)

The newest release in distribution for Castles & Crusades is Shadows of a Green Sky. This is being billed as an "Open and Play" product that contains all the rules need to play the adventure. I believe this was initially released at Free RPG Day 2015. From Troll Lord Games, of course! (Source: Impressions)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: DA1: Adventures in Blackmoor (Basic), Fast Play Game: Eye of the Wyvern (2E), Fang, Beak, and Claw (3E), Shoals of Intrigue (3E), and WG5: Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventure (1E).

(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!)
