Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2022

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 joint winners were Dune and Twilight 2000). Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles (2017), Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018), Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (2019), Dune (2020 & 2021), and Twilight 2000 (2021). What will be the most anticipated RPG of 2022?

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 2022. 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 2022. 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. You can nominate up to two games. It's not a contest to see who can list the most games!
  5. Nominations will remain open for two weeks, until December 23rd. Voting will take place shortly thereafter.
  6. Not your own game or one you’re affiliated with.
  7. Include a link. Don't make me Google to try guess what you mean! No linky, no nommy.

Last year's joint winners were Dune and Twilight 2000 (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!

Torchbearer 2!

Will be doing practice Conflicts/Camp phase/Town phase, character introduction, map stuff this Monday with first session 2 weeks after that!
Under Hollow Hills by Vincent Baker
Torchbearer 2 by Burning Wheel HQ
The Luke Crane / Adam Koebel fiasco with the "The Perfect RPG" zine kinda killed my enthusiasm for Torchbearer 2* as well as my respect for Luke Crane.

* I even asked for and received a refund for the Torchbearer 2 Kickstarter.
 


To me, if I can't hold it in my hands it isn't out!

It is on preorder at Free League.

Not intending to be aggressive here, but what about games that don't have a physical release at all, like The Between? Do you think those shouldn't be eligible for nominations? Or maybe Brindlewood Bay is a better example--it's been out as a PDF for a while, but there's a Kickstarter launching in January for a print edition. If details were available in time for these nominations, would Brindlewood qualify, even though the digital version came out in 2020 (I believe)?

For me personally this is just a bit of fun. Forums should be fun. I honestly haven't been put any thought into it beyond sharing with enthusiasm my two picks and reading with interest what everyone else is looking forward to with anticipation.

As to the actual rules I'll highlight this one as it applies directly to the One Ring:

2. It must be due out to the general public in 2022. The important date is the date the general public can purchase the book. That's not Kickstarter fulfillment dates or pre-orders.

From the original post and what Morrus has said are valid nominations so far it seems like it has to be something with a reasonable expectation of being available for sale in 2022, and not solely as a Kickstarter reward.
Makes sense.

Under those terms (as far as Mongoose Publishing is concerned), Shield Maidens is a 2022 game, as is Paranoia The Perfect Edition, Pioneer won't be.

Good job you didn’t pass up the opportunity to recycle your outrage.
