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)

Bit of an optimistic nomination as they probably won't be released in 2020, but in case they are: Fading Suns from Ulisses Spiele and Werewolf The Apocalypse 5e from Paradox Entertainment.

Not including the above suggestion of Root (Magpie) and Sword of the Serpentine (Pelgrane Press):

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (Cubicle 7)
Sentinel Comic RPG (Greater than Games)

I really like this pool. It always exciting to learn about what hopefully coming out in the next year.

My nominations are (if acceptable):


At the moment I am one of the volunteer (and unpaid) proofreaders for both "Call of Cthulhu: Sverige" and "Kopparhavets hjältar". I work together with the guy that created The Troubleshooters, and have playtested it (and written a scenario that will end up in the coming quickstart rules). The game is currently in the illustration and layout-phase, with a kickstarter coming. Latest I heard was in February next year, so it will probably not come out to the annual convention Gothcon (always held during Easter in Gothenburg).

Always love these threads, because they tend to show some interesting games. ;)

Hi

I’m very much looking forward to Mythras: Lyonesse from The Design Mechanism. I had the good fortune of running a demo game at UKGAMESexpo this year and it was a hit with the players. It captures Vance’s sensibilities perfectly.

Cortex Prime. Though its track record also indicates I may be voting for it in 2021, too.

The publisher WAS Magic Vacuum... now it's whatever the name is of the company that does D&D Beyond.
It will be published by Fandom Tabletop, and I assure you there is plenty of Cortex to look forward to in 2020.
