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!)

Gen Con is only a few weeks away. Are the publishers showing their hands or biding their time?

New releases at your FLGS

From Paizo Publishing, on a one week delay from last week's Pathfinder Roleplaying Game's releases, it's Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw. (Source: Leisure Games)

You can never have enough Rifts, right? The Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity is the newest sourcebook from Palladium Books. (Source: Leisure Games)

Funded by Kickstarter and now entering distribution, Pinnacle Entertainment Group has released Rippers Resurrected: Player's Guide, Rippers Resurrected: Game Master's Handbook, Rippers Resurrected GM Screen with Adventure, and Frightful Expeditions. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

I'm scratching my head on this one... I thought HeroQuest Glorantha released last year, but maybe the Chaosium/Moon Design Publications restructuring delayed the release into distribution? (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

The Design Mechanism has released Classic Fantasy for RQ6/Mythras. This brings old school dungeon crawling to the party. (Source: Alliance)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Ill Wind in Friezford (3E), Stone Dead (3E), A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords (1E), BSOLO: Ghost of Lion Castle (Basic), and MC04: Monstrous Compendium Dragonlance Appendix (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!)

What is this overtext thing people are talking about?
mbmbmbmbmb
The nominees for this year's Diana Jones award have just been announced and, again, offer an eclictic mix of escellence in gaming. On the shortlist are:

ConTessa (http://www.contessa.rocks/), headed by Stacy Dellorfano
Quote:
ConTessa is fresh, passionate organization dedicated to getting more women to play, discuss, and create tabletop roleplaying games. They started out as a blog dedicated to this purpose and quickly developed a series of free online seminars, hangouts, and events to bring women into the RPG fold. Last year they moved into face-to-face encounters by launching a track of their own inside Gen Gen, the largest tabletop gaming convention in the world, innovatively creating a con inside a con.


Eric M. Lang
Quote:
Eric M. Lang is the prolific designer of a staggering collection of board and card games whose volume is exceeded by their quality and acclaim. His deep love of games, gaming, and gamers inspires his co-designers and publishing partners with such grace and good nature that it’s impossible to feel the worse for failing to live up to his example. A very small sample of his achievements include Blood Rage, Dice Masters (with Mike Elliott), Chaos in the Old World (a 2010 Diana Jones nominee), and Living Card Game designs for properties including A Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and Warhammer 40,000.


Fall of Magic by Ross Cowman (Heart of the Deernicorn)
Quote:
Fall of Magic is Ross Cowman’s elegiac fantasy game about loss, travel and discovery, all played out in a slowly unfurling landscape full of genuine wonder and weird surprises. The game marries a peaceful, carefully paced aesthetic with tack-sharp design elements that are smarter than they look. It’s hard to get more fantastic or magical than an actual scroll. As a hand-crafted object, Fall of Magic’s cloth-map-as-setting powerfully evokes its themes, and sets a lovely bar for production – small press or otherwise.


Larpwriter Summer School, a course organized by Fantasiförbundet (Norway) and Post (Belarus) (http://larpschool.blogspot.co.uk/p/about.html)
Quote:
Larpwriter Summer School is a week long intensive course on larp design. Organized annually since 2012 in Lithuania, the curriculum is packed with lectures on design and theory, design exercises, educational games, and playing larps. The summer school is attended each year by around fifty students from around the world who have very little or no experience in larp design, with a crew of twenty people teaching and running the practicalities. The summer school has taught a new generation of designers, developed design theory and tools, and built an international network of alumni – who are all invited back each year. The alumni have gone on to create not only larps, but numerous larp festivals to showcase their works.


Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, a board-game by Rob Daviau and Matt Leacock, published by Z-Man Games
Quote:
The Diana Jones Award shortlisted the first Legacy game, Risk Legacy, in 2012, but Pandemic Legacy is such a leap forward from that forerunner that it more than deserves its place on this list. The game brings in elements and influences from other genres inside and outside traditional board-gaming to create an experience where the whole is greater than the sum of its amazing parts. A Pandemic Legacy campaign is an experience unlike anything else in gaming, and the waves it has created are felt across this and many other areas of interactive entertainment.


The winner will be announced on August 3rd, the night before the Gen Con games convention opens to the public.
