Do the new releases this week feel like Groundhog Day? I don't think so...

New releases at your FLGS

Fantasy Flight Games is in stores this week with Enemies Beyond for Dark Heresy (2nd Edition) and The End of the World: Alien Invasion for The End of the World. (Source: Alliance, Leisure Games)

Here's a cool story... Fall of Magic by Heart of the Deernicorn was funded by Kickstarter and is now in stores. This collaborative storytelling game has some impressive components and non-standard packaging. It's neat to find this in distribution. (Source: Alliance)

Pinnacle Entertainment Group is in stores with more Savage Worlds Lankhmar / Nehwon. Lankhmar: Savage Tales of the Thieves Guild offers 14 adventures. (Source: Alliance)

Goodman Games is back on store shelves with Fifty Fantastic Functions for the D50 (pretty self-explanatory) and DCC #084.2: Synthetic Swordsmen of the Purple Planet for Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Get your D50 before there's a shortage! (Source: Impressions)

Funded by Kickstarter, Modiphius Entertainment has delivered Fragged Empire and Fragged Empire: Antagonist Archive 1 first to backers and now to stores. This is a post post-apocalyptic RPG with its own system. (Source: Impressions)

Has anyone out there found the The Lost City of Gaxmoor (C&C)? If so, please let the Queen know. This Castles & Crusades adventure setting from Troll Lord Games will take adventurers from first to tenth level. (Source: Impressions)

New PDF releases

D&D PDFs this week: Wizards Presents: Races and Classes (4E), Supplement I: Greyhawk (0E; the booklet from the premium reprint), Manifesting: A Tale (3E), and Living Greyhawk Gazetteer (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!)

Who else is tired? Maybe the New Releases will perk us up...

New releases at your FLGS

It's the first round of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game releases for 2016. Pathfinder #101: The Kintargo Contract, Pathfinder #102: Breaking the Bones of Hell, Arcane Anthology, and various related accessories are now available from Paizo Publishing. (Source: Leisure Games)

New PDF releases

Stop the Presses! I just received an encrypted message on my screen. I think it's from Lars. There are four new PDF releases for Shadowrun: Shadows in Focus: City by Shadow - San Francisco Metroplex (setting sourcebook), SRM06-02: Amber Waves of Grain (adventures), Runner's Black Book (4E - available as a single PDF for the first time), and Runner's Black Book 2074 (4E - available as a single PDF for the first time). Unfortunately, it says the message will self-destruct in 2 seco...

D&D PDFs this week: Premium Original Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Roleplaying Game (0E) and Forest Maker (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!)

Other Products

Leisure Games also has AX1: The Sinister Stone of Sakkara (Revised) for Adventurer Conqueror King System, The Warren from Bully Pulpit Games and our own Marshall Miller (also seen on DriveThru), and Focal Point: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Running Extraordinary Sessions from Engine Publishing listed as New Releases. These may be in distribution, or it may just be Leisure Games being awesome again. If they hit Alliance or Impressions, I'll cover them again.

News Bits (January 22): Gygax magazine cancelled, Evil Hat numbers, Gen Con news

A Beast I am, lest a Beast I become
mbmbmbmbmb
Hello and welcome back to the Industry News. This week we've got the cancellation of a magazine, more numbers for the number lovers and some Gen Con news. So let's dive right in, shall we?

The biggest news this week comes from TSR, Inc (Gygax Magazine). Today the company announced in email to its subscribers the cancellation of Gygax Magazine. The just released Issue 6 is the final issue of the short-lived OSR gaming magazine. It seems the new TSR, originally ran by Luke Gygax and Ernie Gygax, was involved in a legal dispute with Gail Gygax, wife of the late Gary Gygax, which seemed to deal with the use of the name "Gygax", but has now been settled. Part of the settlement was that Ernie and Luke both withdrew from the new TSR. Without them the company didn't want to continue publishing the magazine, editor Jayson Elliot explained in the above-mentioned email. New TSR will continue to publish OSR products though.

Even more numbers for all you spreadsheet fans out there: Evil Hat Productions released the sales numbers for Q4 this week. The company seems to have done okay, even though - as seems usual for Q4 - numbers were rather soft. If you look at the spreadsheet, most of the products have sold considerably less than last quarter, with only a few upward spikes.

Most companies are already preparing for convention season, with the likes of Paizo, Fantasy Flight Games and Pelgrane Press looking for GMs for Gen Con. The big exception regarding preparations for the big con is Wizards of the Coast - it seems they won't be attending Gen Con this year. ENworld refers to a list of conventions WotC plans to attend and Gen Con is not among them. The reason an unnamed employee of the company gave ENworld is WotC is supposedly changing things up to support more conventions and locations, especially those they don't normally get to attend - which doesn't make that much sense, because you can attend smaller cons and still go to Gen Con as well, especially when you're still the 500 pound gorilla in the corner.

And that's it for this week's coverage. As usual, if there's anything I got wrong or stuff I might have overlooked, feel free to comment below.

What's New? January 19, 2016: Dust Adventures, Mutant: Year Zero, Shadowrun, The Last Parsec, and D&D PDFs

It's brutally cold outside my front door, but it's hot... Eh, it's still lukewarm for the new releases. Give it time.

New releases at your FLGS

Modiphius Entertainment is in stores for the first time this year with the long awaited DUST Adventures Roleplaying Game and Dead Blue Sea (a, well, sea sourcebook) for Mutant: År Noll. (Source: Impressions)

Available in PDF for a few months, Hard Targets is now available in print from Catalyst Game Labs. This Shadowrun (5th Edition) sourcebook has all the rules you need for wetwork jobs. (Source: Leisure Games)

Funded by Kickstarter and released at Gen Con 2015, The Last Parsec - a sci-fi Savage Worlds setting - is now available at your FLGS from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. (Source: Alliance)

A quick explanation of the distributors that I check. Alliance is a big US distributor. New releases listed there might take extra time to show up in other countries. Leisure Games is a fantastic FLGS in the UK. New releases listed there might take extra time to show up outside the UK. In addition, Leisure Games sometimes has items not in regular distribution (Kickstarter, small press) so YMMV. Impressions is a smaller US distributor with some notable clients. I hold their New Releases a week, but they could hit US stores a bit faster or slower.

New PDF releases

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the Dungeon Masters Guild. As I've done in the past, I'll try to cover the Wizards of the Coast releases each week. If you see something interesting from the DMs Guild, let us know in the comments. Just missing the cut last week, Mines of Madness and a large variety of free Pregen characters were released for Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition).

(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!)
