A few bits and bobs to report this week - as usual, please drop a line in the comments to tell us about anything else you've seen!

Expanding your options for Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) adventuring in Middle Earth, Cubicle 7 Entertainment has released Wilderland Adventures, containing seven scenarios, additional background material, new monsters and more. (Source: Cubicle 7)

From Modiphius Entertainment, we have a Player's Guide (looks like maybe not in the database?) for Robert E. Howard's Conan. This has no new content, but contains only the player-facing information from the core book. (Source: Modiphius)

For The Cypher System, we've got Expanded Worlds, which provides a ton of advice, character options, etc. for trying out a wide range of settings, from gritty noir to hard science fiction. (Source: Alliance)

Classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs from Wizards of the Coast are DLA3: Dragon's Rest, Powers & Pantheons, Elminster's Ecologies, The Silver Key and DLS1: New Beginnings. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

Another week without much to report, but there are a couple of interesting things that I saw. If you know of anything else, please drop a line in the comments!

These all have 2016 release dates, but they just popped on a major North American distributor (Impressions): Goodman Games has re-released a large quantity of old Judges Guild material, including stuff like Citadel of Fire. Most of these do seem to contain new material, but I'm not sure exactly what the details are. (Source: Impressions)

Champions (4th Edition) is in the Bundle of Holding, and in a possibly related development, there's a whole ton of stuff available on DTRPG. I'm not going to list everything, but seriously, it's a lot of stuff! (Source: DriveThruRPG)

And the classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs this week from Wizards of the Coast are: DLA1: Dragon Dawn, DLA2: Dragon Knight, M2: Maze of the Riddling Minotaur, The Ruins of Myth Drannor and Swords & Spells. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

What's New? April 5th, 2017: Dungeons & Dragons!

I didn't really see much of anything out there this week - super quiet again, but there is a big release for D&D, and the usual digital releases from Wizards of the Coast. If you saw something else, drop a line in the comments and let everyone know!

Tales from the Yawning Portal should be hitting shelves near you very soon. This collection updates several classic D&D adventures to 5th Edition, including S2: White Plume Mountain, S1: Tomb of Horrors and C1: The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan. Check out Clark's review Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, and a TPK for you too! to get a better overall picture! From Wizards of the Coast. (Source: Everywhere, but particularly Alliance)

Classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs this week are: DLS2: Tree Lords, Dark Sun Campaign Setting (Expanded and Revised Edition), DLS3: Oak Lords and Joshuan's Almanac & Book of Facts. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

I don't know much about the publication history of either Dungeon or Dragon, but I did notice that some back issues of both have popped up under "new classic titles" on the DMs Guild. Anyone who knows more about these publications got any sense of whether this is new, old, interesting or otherwise?
