Yeah, I'm a day late. You backed a process, you know.

New releases at your FLGS

From Catalyst Game Labs, Howling Shadows has been released for Shadowrun (5th Edition) just in time for Gen Con. And, no, I still haven't forgiven Lars for the chupacabra incident. (Source: Leisure Games)

Green Ronin Publishing is in stores with two very different products. First, there's the Dragon Age Game Master's Kit, Revised for Dragon Age. Next, there's Cinema and Sorcery RPG Film Book; this book covers the movies that might have influenced your favorite Fantasy RPGs. (Source: Leisure Games)

Last but not least, three small press games have popped on New Release lists. From Bully Pulpit Games, it's Predator Cards for The Warren; it includes 31 Move and 20 Predator cards. From Vajra Enterprises, it's This is a Dark Ride, Second Edition for In Dark Alleys. Goblin Quest also popped on the list; this RPG features adventure from luminaries in the hobby such as Meguey Baker, Robin D. Laws, Kenneth Hite, Rob Heinsoo, and others... (Source: Leisure Games, so keep in mind these may not be quite new, may be Kickstarter rewards, etc... In other words, YMMV.)

New PDF releases

So, some Fairies came to our door. Neat. That was until I realized they were bearing a message from Lars. Evidently, the alternate Fantasy (High Fantasy), Mythology / Folklore setting for Shadowrun (5th Edition) - Court of Shadows - is now available in PDF. Anyone have any Seelie repellent?

D&D PDFs this week: A Hero's Tale (2E), Black Rain (3E) (wasn't that the Tay Zonday song? Chocolate Rain, sorry), and AC10: Bestiary of Dragons and Giants (Basic - check out the fresh off the presses review "Falls short of iconic, but it has its moments").

(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!)
