It's that time of year again! Nominate your Most Anticipated Games of 2019
  • It's that time of year again! Nominate Your Most Anticipated Games of 2019


    Towards the end of every year, we all vote on the ten most anticipated tabletop RPGs for the following year. It's been a tradition for a few years now. Here's last year's 10 most anticipated games, the winner being Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition. Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), and Trudvang Chronicles (2017).
    And we're doing it all again this year! Here's how it works:

    We start with a nomination stage. That's this thread. You may nominate any standalone tabletop RPG due to be released to the general public in 2019. All nominated games will appear on the final ballot. A few rules:

    1. It must be a standalone tabletop RPG, NOT a supplement, setting, adventure, sourcebook, expansion, or accessory.
    2. It must be due out to the general public in 2019.
    3. It must be nominated by at least one person in this thread. Simply post the name of the game and the name of the publisher below to nominate it.

    Nominations will remain open for two weeks, until November 15th. Voting will take place at the end of the month.





    Last year's winner was Vampire The Masquerade 5th Edition (pictured above). You can see last year's top 10 here. The previous year it was Trudvang Chronicles. Sometimes products make it into the list in more than one year; what can I say? Product schedules slip!

      Ulisses is doing Fading Suns, not Modiphius. That said I'll nominate Fading Suns (Ulisses) and Trinity Continuum (Onyx Path).

      I would like to put The Expanse back on the list since it was not released in 2018. The Kickstarter finished in August and they list an expected delivery of January 2019. As we all know, Kickstarters often face unexpected delays so I think it is safe to put this one back on the list.

      Some of this is slightly speculative, or tentative, but there has been suggestion of a bunch of interesting SciFi releases next year:

      Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000AD by ENWorld (in physical form at least, as we have the Kickstarter PDF now)
      Eclipse Phase 2nd Edition (Posthuman Games)
      2300AD 2nd Edition for Traveller rules (Mongoose)
      Cyberpunk 2077 by R Talisorian games?
      Dune by Modiphius

      And a few other non-scifi games that may also happen:

      Werewolf: The Apocalypse 5th Edition (White Wolf)
      Savage Worlds Adventurer Edition (PEG)
      Over The Edge 3rd Edition (Atlas Games)
      Paladin (Nocturnal Media, using Pendragon rules), and possibly Mymidon and Samurai later…..
      Aquelarre (Nocturnal Media)
      Lex Arcana (Quality Games)
      Lyonesse (The Design Mechanism, using Mythras rules)
      Demon City (Zac Smith and co.).

      Oh and this is an entirely wild speculation, but seeing that Atlas Games have managed to release new editions for all their other RPGs in recent years, will they get round to doing a 6th edition of Ars Magica?

      I don't believe their delay will allow it to be released this year, so I'll nominate Dragons Conquer America by Burning Games.

      I can't wait for these RPGs.

      Dune RPG - Modiphius / galeforce 9
      John Carter of Mars - Modiphius


      I like what Modiphius has to do with Star Trek Adventures so far.

      No add-ons - that rules out a lot. I‘ll say DCC Lankhmar (Goodman Games), then. And probably also Sword of the Serpentine (Pelgrane Press), although I am not sure if it will actually be out in 2019.
      Does Things from the Flood (Fria Ligan) count because it can be played stand-alone? If so, then that is my clear favourite.
