Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2020

As I do every year, I'm taking nominations for the MOST ANTICIPATED RPG poll for 2020. Here is last year's Top 10 (spoiler: the winner was Savage Worlds Adventure Edition). Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles (2017), and Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018). What will be the most anticipated RPG of 2020?

We do this at the end of every year, and have done for several years now! 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 2020. 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. If there is a QuickStart version, or a preview, it’s the full release that counts.
  2. It must be due out to the general public in 2020.
  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.
  4. Nominations will remain open for two weeks, until January 4th. Voting will take place shortly thereafter.
  5. Not your own game or one you’re affiliated with.


Last year's winner was Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (pictured above). You can see last year's top 10 here. Sometimes products make it into the list in more than one year; what can I say? Product schedules slip!

There’s no way I’m going to let SLA Industries 2nd Edition slip through the cracks.


Edit: Apologies, I was on my phone, so I missed "Not your own game or one you’re affiliated with."

Top of the following, depending on what qualifies:
Mothership RPG Boxed Set, by Tuesday Knight Games (Kickstarter is planned for 2020, so it might only make it in 2021 - Source: Kickstarter comments for Gradient Descent module)
Root Tabletop RPG, by Magpie Games (due in September 2020, risk for delay is there based on past experiences)
Vaesen RPG, by Free League Publishing (due in May 2020, should make it based on past experiences)
