10 Most Anticipated RPGs of 2013
  • Licensed Role-Playing Games: Threat Or Menace?

    Let's just get the controversial statement out of the way: I'm not a fan of licensed settings in role-playing games. Today's column is rolling out of a Skype conversation that I had with a friend the other day. There's a lot of cool RPGs out there that are based upon cool movies, comic books, novels and cartoons. None of them are bad, and I'm not...

    ESPN Calls Role-playing "Bad Fantasy"

    The parallels between fantasy sports and fantasy role-playing games have long been noted by both geeks and jocks (mostly geeks). So it may come as a surprise to some that ESPN decided to draw a sharp distinction between the two with a commercial that casts fantasy role-play in a negative light. Can't We All Just Get...

      Pretty good list. Taking out the new editions of old games and/or licensed properties, I'm pretty much stoked about all of remaining. Ie, Torchbearer, Hill Folk, Fate Core, Numenara, and 13th Age. For me, in that order as well. I'm pretty on board with that order.

      Please post the poll for the 2014 releases in this thread when it is released.

      It won't be until next year, but the poll will need its own thread.

      We've recruited a GM to run at least one listed Hillfolk game in addition to the demos. It was submitted Monday for approval so keep an eye out. When it's live we'll also announce it on Pelgrane's social channels along with 18 more 13th Age sessions.

      Any chance of Hillfolk being at PAX Prime?

      If we can find a volunteer GM willing and able to run it in Games on Demand, sure. We're still working out what the 13th Age/Pelgrane presence at PAX will consist of.

      That's almost exactly how I explain what a roleplaying game is to someone who doesn't know. Not seeing the distinction here.

      Also, Hillfolk sounds nothing like that (though it is interesting).
