What's New? January 18th, 2017: Dead Reign, Mutants & Masterminds, AGE and more!

Kind of a quiet week again this week, folks - although I see a few bigger releases looming over the horizon! In the meantime, though, here's what you have to content yourselves with in the depths of winter (or summer, I guess, if you're in the southern hemisphere!).

As always, if I've missed something, please give everyone a heads up in the comments!

New at your FLGS

The latest supplement for Dead Reign is Hell Followed, which provides a whole host of new options for your zombie-horror games. From Palladium Books. (Source: Leisure Games)

I'm not 100% on this, but I think that Atlas of Earth-Prime (pending approval) collects the series of PDFs that were released over the last year or so by Green Ronin Publishing. Whatever the background is, this is a nice big campaign setting for your Mutants & Masterminds (3rd Edition) games! (Source: Alliance)

New PDFs and POD

The Lucanii Drift is a sandbox campaign for Starships & Spacemen 2E, from Kitsune Press, that also includes a bunch of new options for characters. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Kaigaku (Deluxe Edition), a samurai/martial arts hack of The Black Hack is now available. The premium version has upgraded artwork and, apparently, a better layout. From Thunderegg Productions.(Source: DriveThruRPG)

There's a new edition of The Blue Rose, the romantic fantasy game set in the world of Aldea. This time, it uses the AGE (Adventure Game Engine) System from Green Ronin Publishing. I'm pretty sure this is also supposed to be available in a non-POD physical form at some point, too. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Missed this one last week, I think: the latest World of Adventure for Fate Core is Andromeda, which sets the players as leaders of a space-ark fill of refugees, recently arrived in the Andromeda Galaxy. From Evil Hat Productions. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

This week's classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs from Wizards of the Coast are: Reunion, The Factol's Manifesto, Calimport and Ruined Kingdoms. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

This Week in Generosity: US Edition

Not everyone is aware of the US RPG Chain of Generosity +2 but if you live in the US, it's a great way to give away things you don't want and get things you do want. There are 8 chains at the moment. If you win a chain, you then post something of yours to give away to the next person.

Right now in the chains you could win some pretty unusual and interesting stuff.

Save vs. Death #102: Pick one of several games/supplements including Alien Module 1: Aslan, Universe of Babylon 5 and a couple of Gurps Castle Falkenstein items

Blasted Heath #110: Potentially choose several items including Game Master's Toolkit for Warhammer FRP 3rd edition, some Firefly/Serenity items and We B4 Goblins! among other things.

High Level #91: features your choice of several things including Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein and a collection of Swashbuckling Adventures books among other items.

Helm's Deep #126: offers Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition, Fiasco, or a box of old Dragon magazines

Oh The Horror #104 offers a medium-sized box with a bunch of items of your choice from Star Wars to World of Darkness and a bunch of indie items.

Star Siege #111: is similar -- a medium sized box of books of your choice ranging from Eberron and Savage World to Icons and other indie games.

To Boldly Go #86: offers your choice of Deep Carbon Observatory or Hyperborean Mice.

Fields of Glorantha #129:offers your choice of several items including Apes Victorious and Old School Adventures Accessory AX2: d30 Sandbox Companion

The chain thrives on the idea that one gamer's trash is another gamer's treasure. You mark yourself "in" for any items you like, then there's a random draw for a winner and the winner gets that item and posts something they'd like to get rid of.

It's pretty simple and a lot of fun.

Hey everyone! Sorry for the slight delay today. 2017 is starting to pick up steam with quite a few new releases, so let's get right on into it!

New at your FLGS

One of the games that I was looking forward to this year is out: Third Act Publishing's Reflections, a two-player game of duels, has shipped to Kickstarter backers and is available for purchase (Source: Third Act)

Modiphius Entertainment has released Mindjammer: Transhuman Adventure in the Second Age of Space, which is a brand new edition of the setting for Traveller (Mongoose). Looks to be available in both print and PDF from the publisher webstore at the very least. (Source: Modiphius)

The fourth printing of the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game seems to be (finally) making its way into distribution, which means there are a whole bunch of new "special editions" with variant cover art, slipcovers, silver leaf, etc. Also of note is the physical release of DCC #089: Chaos Rising (previously available in PDF), which collects five low-level adventures, and makes a great starting point! (Source: Impressions)

Also in stores this week is the latest adventure for Victorious: Night of the Jackals finds the players hunting for the source of a dangerous new drug, while the city descends into chaos around them. From Troll Lord Games. (Source: Impressions)

New PDFs and POD

Here's a neat little fantasy-noir setting for Dungeon World: Demons & Derringers is a high-action setting that throws players into the thick of demon country, along with some custom moves and other neat bits. From Headpigeons Productions. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Suicide is painless...MASHED (pending admin approval) is a Korean War RPG inspired by M*A*S*H, and powered by the apocalypse (what isn't these days?). See how long you can make the war last! From Brabblemark Press. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Another release tied to Galileo Games' Kickstarter for the Fate Core version of Bulldogs!: this one is Spacenoir: A Bulldogs! Technoir Transmission. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

The big PDF release this week from Wizards of the Coast is Chainmail, the fantasy miniatures ruleset that was the predecessor of Dungeons & Dragons. I'm not sure whether this has ever been available as a (legal) PDF before, but it's now just five bucks over on the DMs Guild. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

And of course, there are some classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs as well: Children of the Night: The Created, Dead Gods and The Jade Hare are the latest additions to the Wizards' digital library. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)
