Let's jump in... it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Please remember that your mileage may vary.

New releases at your FLGS

Chaosium is in distribution with two Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) products. Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Quick-Start Rules was first available in 2013; it has popped on Alliance's New Release list, and I don't have a record of it being available in stores previously. Alone Against the Flames had a limited release at Gen Con 2015 but also appears to be hitting distribution for the first time. This is a solo adventure that uses the Quick-Start rules. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

Speaking of Gen Con 2015, that's where I first saw Clockwork: Dominion Core Rulebook from Reliquary Game Studios. This Victorian, steampunk, gothic horror RPG appears to be entering distribution for the first time. (Source: Alliance)

Colonial Gothic: Gamemaster is the latest book in the Colonial Gothic line from Rogue Games, Inc.. (Source: Alliance)

Storm Battalion from Third Eye Games is now available from your FLGS. This History (Alternative) RPG uses the Dynamic Gaming System found in other Third Eye Games products. (Source: Alliance)

Goodman Games' Gen Con bounty is still making its way to stores. This week DCC #091: Journey to the Center of Aereth and Dungeon Crawl Classics #91.1: The Lost City of Barako. (Source: Impressions)

Modiphius Entertainment keeps pumping out the new releases. For Mindjammer (2nd Edition) (Fate Core), look for Dominion: Quickstart Rules and Adventure and The City People (a setting and adventure). Further expanding Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game, it's Whitestar Source Book and Luna & Freelancers Source Book. (Source: Impressions)

Players Guide to Aihrde is now available from Troll Lord Games for Castles & Crusades. (Source: Impressions)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs the last two weeks: The Magic Encyclopedia (Volume One) (2e), OA5: Mad Monkey vs the Dragon Claw (1e), MC08: Monstrous Compendium: Outer Planes Appendix (2e), DDA3: Eye of Traldar (Basic), Faction Kits for Storm King's Thunder available as PoD (5e), XSOLO: Lathan's Gold (Basic), M3: Twilight Calling (Basic), XS2: Thunderdelve Mountain (Basic), and M5: Talons of Night (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!)

Although this one won't be up to his standard, it seemsh crazy to celebrate his birthday without a graph or spreadsheet of some kind. This one plots his age vs. the number of years since the year of his birth X.



(There may be a reason why I announce birthdays and Stelio prepares spreadsheets and graphs)

What's New? September 13, 2016: One Ring, Doctor Who, World War Cthulhu, Mythras, D&D PDFs, and more

Hey you kids, get off my Avatar!
mbmbmbmbmb
I've had a few questions recently that I thought I would address. Your mileage may vary on what I list as a new release at your FLGS.

I concentrate my efforts on titles that are in distribution through Alliance (US), Impressions (US), and Leisure Games (a FLGS in the UK). Some stores use other distributors, so I might miss them when they are first released. Alliance's New Releases appear to be manually produced, so it's possible they might not feature a title. Print on demand, crowd sourced, non-English language, and small press releases largely don't hit my radar until they appear on one of my three sources.

Well... unless Leisure Games picks them up. I like using Leisure Games as a source since - for some products - they lead US distribution by a week or so. They also back crowd sourced projects at retail levels, support small press games, and stock European releases.

I try to note when I think something unusual has happened, but that's completely hit or miss.

Let's get to the new releases this week...

New releases at your FLGS

It's a big release week for Cubicle 7 Entertainment: Journeys & Maps for The One Ring; The Silurian Age: Dinosaurs and Spaceships for Doctor Who Roleplaying Game; The Lure of Venus for Rocket Age; Kuro Tensei for Kuro; World War Cthulhu London for World War Cthulhu; and Heroes of Magnamund for Lone Wolf Adventure Game. (Source: Leisure Games)

The Design Mechanism is in stores with their latest D100 house system: Mythras and Mythras Imperative (a 34 page primer). (Source: Leisure Games)

Accursed for Savage Worlds has been expanded by Melior Via, LLC with the World of Morden. (Source: Alliance)

Osprey Publishing is in stores with Empire of Imagination, the biography of Gary Gygax. This was originally published last year by Bloomsbury Publishing Plc. (Source: Alliance)


New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Champions of Mystara: Heroes of the Princess Ark (Basic), FRC1: Ruins of Adventure (1e), WG10: Child's Play (2e), and WG8: Fate of Istus (1e/2e).

(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!)
