    Traveller Open Content - New Programme on the Way

    Mongoose Traveller 1st edition introduced an OGL which was changed when they introduced the 2nd edition - which became the TAS license. Some 3rd parties didn’t like the terms of that so made Cepheus instead. The new Open Content is clearly in response to the WotC leak, but may address something...

    Here Are Your 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2023

    It depends on how you define a ‘narrative game’. There are lots of antecedents towards the notion of a game driven by narratives. I’d argue that games like James Bond 007, Marvel Super Heroes or Steve Jackson’s Toon had narrative mechanics in certain aspects, while games like Paranoia had very...

    Here Are Your 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs of 2023

    There was a lot of mentions for Pendragon in the build up to the poll, it was a holdover from 2022 to a degree and, to be sure, I don’t think any better roleplaying game exists. So, yep, it would me my major anticipated game of the year. Slightly surprised that Monty Python wasn’t higher placed...

    Vote For The Most Anticipated RPG of 2023!

    Honestly, I think the Monty Python game or maybe Pendragon will win it, but as others say, it looks a quieter year for new releases than for previous years, Notably Pendragon was a delayed release from 2022, and other games may also be holdovers too. I was surprised nobody mentioned the new...

    Pendragon 6th is being written via Greg Stafford’s guidance. It was his notes and his plan to release a 6th edition. He began work on it a decade ago. It will be his name on the credits.

    Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2023 [NOMINATIONS OVER]

    Based on previous years' debates, it is the actual public release of the release of the PDF that counts. So, no Bladerunner for example as the PDF is already available to the general public.

    Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2023 [NOMINATIONS OVER]

    I’ve already nominated, but curiously nobody seems to have mentioned Marvel Multiverse and Gotham City Chronicles for 2023 yet? Maybe superhero stuff isn’t that popular here?

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    Was it? Because, again, I thought a Mod had asked people to stop bickering about definitions and all I am reading is a bunch of dogpiling posters wanting to continue with it, regardless.

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    No I haven’t linked it. Find it for yourself. It’s one of Morrus’ Podcasts from earlier this year in discussion with some industry analyst. It isn’t as if providing links and sources actually makes any difference with the posters on this thread anyway.

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    No. I thought a Mod just came on this thread to stop bickering about definitions. The point is this is not my theory that I am putting out here like some maverick. I am explaining what other people have defined the situation as. I am referring you to a Podcast on this site that has already...

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    I gave you specific legal definition from the UK. A company does not need to be a sole producer in a market to have monopoly power over it - as defined in the source I gave. Like I say, you really need to go and find that podcast and listen to it too - because this has already been discussed by...

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    The chart at the top of the thread is for Tabletop RPG, which is the context of what we are discussing. I would challenge you to find any retailer that sells tabletop RPG that doesn’t sell D&D5E. I know of several that only sell D&D5E. Do you think that is an extraordinarily weak situation for them?

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    Lol. Yes, I did. All your arguments are consisting of here is an assumption of authority on your part. You don’t have that. You are simply arguing with a definition and an explanation provided. In fact, this very site has already discussed the fact that D&D has a monopoly on the RPG market in...

    ICv2 Reports On RPGs Growth This Year

    Put it this way, most retailers wouldn’t be selling any RPG right now without D&D establishing its market. Yes, it is a monopoly as defined.

    "A monopoly is a market structure where a single seller or producer assumes a dominant position in an industry or a sector.” (Monopoly Definition) Seems like it to me. In the UK a firm is said to have monopoly power if it has more than 25% of the market share. I wouldn’t be surprised in D&D...
