How's everybody doing? Hard to believe that 2017 is almost 3/4 over, huh? What great releases does the rest of the year have in store? Keep coming back to find out, but for this week, we've got...

The first Pathfinder Roleplaying Game release this week is the latest Pathfinder Player Companion. This one is the Antihero's Handbook, which is pretty much what it sounds like, promising to provide the usual passel of new mechanical options, this time for characters on the...greyer end of the moral spectrum. From Paizo Publishing. (Source: Alliance)

Also for Pathfinder, we have Book of the Damned which gives you all the information you could ever want (well, maybe not) on demon lords and archdevils. Out of curiosity, has anyone added up how many pages of official Pathfinder material there are at this point? (Source: Alliance)

Any Mistborn Adventure Game fans out there? This week, you get Alloy of Law: Masks of the Past which expands on Brandon Sanderson's Shadows of Self and The Bands of Mourning, bringing new mechanical and setting options to your table. From Crafty Games. (Source: Leisure Games)

From Khepera Publishing, there's a new release for Atlantis: The Second Age (2nd Edition). This one is Death Among the Trees, which is a full-length adventure set in a tomb high in the Atlas Mountains. (Source: Leisure Games)

Next up we have the latest Troll Lord Games adventure for the fifth edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game. This one is Adventures for 5th Edition Rules A8: Forsaken Mountain (5E), which finds characters trying to prevent Coburg the Undying from acquiring the Vessel of Souls. As always, these are conversions of older (2011, in this case) adventures for Castles & Crusades. (Source: Leisure Games)

Leagues of Adventure gets tentacly! Well, maybe it was always tentacly, but now it's getting everyone's favorite elder tentacle god and friends: Leagues of Cthulhu (not currently in the database) brings Lovecraftian fun to this RPG from Triple Ace Games Ltd. You'll apparently also need Leagues of Gothic Horror to get the most out of this. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

From Chaosium, we've got Reign of Terror, a historical scenario set during the French Revolution. This was developed by Mark Morrison as an interlude scenario for Horror on the Orient Express, but it's now been worked up into a two-parter that can be played either as a standalone or within the framework of the larger campaign. (Source: Chaosium)

The only Classic Dungeons & Dragons release from Wizards of the Coast this week appears to be ADP6-04: Fantastic Locations: Fields of Ruin. (Source: Dungeon Masters Guild)

Hopefully, she'll forgive me.

What's New? September 14th, 2017: Worlds of Fate, D&D, Call of Cthulhu!

A few bits this week, as always, drop a line in the comments about the stuff I missed!

The latest big Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) release from Wizards of the Coast is Tomb of Annihilation. I'm going to be honest: I haven't looked super closely at this, but I'm going to guess that there's a tomb, and some annihilation. There's also some dice to go along with it, by the looks of it. (Source: Everywhere, really)

The latest World of Adventure for Fate Core is So the Story Goes (gotta add this to the database, by the looks of it), which...I'm not super clear on. You play Storytellers, who are trying to prevent the rise of a Tyrant, and there's an emphasis on the social aspects of roleplaying, but it's a little fuzzy beyond that. From Don Bisdorf and Evil Hat Productions. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

I'm pretty sure that this was a Kickstarter that I missed out on or passed on for reasons I don't recall, but Down Darker Trails is a Wild West-themed setting for Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition) that sounds a bit like Deadlands: the Cthulhuing (which is not necessarily a bad thing!). It's an official Chaosium product. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

A Kickstarter that I did go in on was for Alas for the Awful Sea: Myth, Mystery & Crime in 1800s UK, which is shipping to backers and should be available elsewhere very soon, I think. This is powered by the apocalypse, and it's from Storybrewers Roleplaying. (Source: Mine came in the mail!)

What's New? September 7th, 2017: Wyrms Footnotes & Conan the Barbarian!

A couple of good ones this week, but not a whole lot to report in aggregate. Let everyone know about the stuff I missed in the comments!

Chaosium has announced the return of Wyrms Footnotes as the house magazine for the Glorantha setting. Three issues are currently lined up, and issue 16 should be in the wild shortly. (Source: Chaosium)

Conan the Barbarian is the latest supplement for Modiphius Entertainment's Robert E. Howard's Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, providing new rules for barbaric carousing among many other things, as well as new character options and new regions in which you can drive your enemies before you and listen to the lamentations of their women. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

The only Classic Dungeons & Dragons PDF I'm seeing this week is HWR2: Kingdom of Nithia, but I think I'm missing them, because things were obviously released the last couple of weeks, but they're not showing up for me on the Dungeon Masters Guild under "Latest Classic Titles," so if anyone knows a better way to see these releases, let me know!
