Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2022

Status
Not open for further replies.
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!

Yeah but it makes for much less work for me at the end!

Do you also have a "most anticipated kickstarter release" category? Because more and more games are coming out through this channel, and they don't necessarily give dates of public availability early.

We'll see. It may depend how this whole blockchain thing changes anything. I've seen some TTRPG already begun talking among themselves about changing project kickstarting platforms.

Fine, change it to "most anticipated crowdfunded games" and that eliminates the question of particular platforms.

No worries at all, Umbran. But I would be interested in such a category as well.

That said, I'm a bit surprised given the recent announcement that there hasn't been a discussion about Kickstarter on the forums (as best as I can tell).

You didn't search on the word "blockchain"?

Again, as far as I could tell, which was from more of a casual perusing through the forums. I generally don't venture into the Geek Talk sub-forum that much. If it's there, then obviously I missed it.

I’m going to delete the original post now, and nominate a couple from the list with links.

Seeing as the Chaosium games have been mentioned several times, I don’t need to mention them again. Matt Sprange just confirmed that Pioneer won’t be ready in 2022, too, but also did mention the Mongoose games (Paranoia -The Perfect Edition and Shield Maidens).

So that leaves me just the Regegade/WoD games to nominate:

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.

10-4

My next “contribution” (most folks on ENWorld wouldn’t classify what I wrote with that descriptor!) probably won’t be until early/mid-January after we have some play under our belt. I’ll post a play excerpt/breakdown.

I doubt many on here will be interested in that thread so you’ll have plenty of company with your abstention/veto!

I'm very curious about the next WoD releases. I just hope they really improve the editing and layout of the books. I thoroughly enjoyed the content but I found it near impossible to peruse effectively through it during play.
