And one-third have nothing to do with 5e!

(and only 1 out of 4 was not funded in 2021. In fact, 7th Sea was the first million dollar TTRPG, in 2016. This is an interesting trend indeed)

Another fun fact: with the exception of Matt Colville, no publisher/creator has more than a single million TTRPG on the list.

Oh! Single, you mean more than a single. Interesting good point.
I wonder if any creatives are part of more than one of these? Other than the MCDM folk. Unless they are part of three or more!
 




At this rate, Magpie Games will be so bored of coming up with Stretch Goals for the Avatar RPG that they'll gonna have to take a day off or two from it all.

A big part of the issue are behind-the-scenes negotiations with Viacom regarding what they could do.
