Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2021

As I do every year, I'm taking nominations for the MOST ANTICIPATED RPG poll for the coming year. Here is last year's Top 10 (spoiler: the winner was the Dune RPG, which hasn't actually made it out yet). Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles , and Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018), and Savage...

As I do every year, I'm taking nominations for the MOST ANTICIPATED RPG poll for the coming year. Here is last year's Top 10 (spoiler: the winner was the Dune RPG, which hasn't actually made it out yet). Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles , and Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018), and Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (2019). What will be the most anticipated RPG of 2021?

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 2021. All nominated games will appear on the final ballot. To nominate a game, simply make a reply in this thread. 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 2021. The important date is the date the general public can purchase the book. That's not Kickstarter fulfillment dates or pre-orders.
  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 December 22nd. Voting will take place shortly thereafter.
  5. Not your own game or one you’re affiliated with.
  6. Include a link. Don't make me Google to try guess what you mean! No linky, no nommy.

Last year's winner was Dune (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!

Thank you, TrippyHippy, for notifying me of the Luther Arkwright RPG. I must have missed the news so will research it now. Never played any earlier versions either if such existed, but enjoyed the collected omnibus graphic novel and own it in my collection of great comic books.
All good. I’ve been requesting a stand-alone edition of this setting for a few years now. Apparently they are waiting on new material from Bryan Talbot, and they have renewed the license in order to make it so. Not totally sure on the dates again, but I can hope before then end of 2021 at least. There was a version of the game that came out way back in 1990, IIRC, but The Design Mechanism have a very good writing crew, so this could be a great game for me - like Doctor Who for grown ups.

Not sure. The Kickstarter sign up is on - the rest of the details I’m not sure if they’ve been announced or not. Do you have more info? I mean the 'Silver Anniversary Edition’ implies it is coming out soon.
None, hence my question.

It would seem unlikely to be released in 2021 even with the Silver Anniversary Edition tagline, which I would expect to refer to when the KS goes up rather the release date.

Well, if we are not sure then how can we speculate either way? I’m not in the know, but there has been a development blog of some sort, and people who have followed it say that the books themselves are nearing completion and that would imply a quick turnaround from when the Kickstarter gets announced. I know some Kickstarters take ages to deliver, but a number of companies are now looking at doing the development of the game before the campaign gets going - so this is possibly what may be happening with Everway. So nothing official as an announcement but some pictures below of the what the developed product is looking like:

Last year I just went through my backed Kickstarters and nominated those (including future ENnie darling Thousand-Year-Old Vampire), but most of the ones I would have put forward, including Urban Shadows 2e and Deviant: The Renegades, have already been nominated, so I'll just throw out a couple that remain from my backed list: Mummy: The Curse, Second Edition (Onyx Path Publishing) and Unspeakable: Sigil & Sign (Cubicle 7) ...which is bound to come out one of these years!
