Nominate your MOST ANTICIPATED RPG of 2023 [NOMINATIONS OVER]

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 Free League's Blade Runner). 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 2023?

NOTE -- THE NOMINATION PHASE IS NOW OVER. GO HERE TO VOTE FOR THE WINNERS!

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 2023. 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 2023. 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 19th. 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 winner was Blade Runner (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!

The Gloomhaven RPG…I’ve never played the board game so I haven‘t got a clue about it but such a massively popular IP should probably get a nomination…

I'm down for Pendragon and Die too. But looking at my kickstarter page...

I suspect this year the winner will be the Monty Python Game (Oct 2023)

But I'm also looking forward to:
Witch: Fated Souls Second Edition by Angry Hamster (Oct 2023)
The Secret World (based on the computer game) by Star Anvil Studios (Apr 2023)
Cowboy Bebop by Red Tail (Nov 2023)
and Magi-Knights by Magi-Knights (Nov 2023)

But I'll see what everyone else nominates before I pick which two to nominate before Russ chastises me for nominating too many and not following the instruction in this post :)

I'm also hoping someone will nominate My Little Pony but I can't as I'm working on it :)

Pendragon by Chaosium

I'll also cast my vote for Pendragon 6E by Chaosium. Truly can't think of any other standalone RPGs scheduled for release next year that I am interested in purchasing.

EDIT: Bugbear70 reminded me (below) about Old Gods of Appalachia by Monte Cook Games. Definitely interested in that one, but totally forgot about it. Old Gods of Appalachia - Monte Cook Games

In addition to Dragonbane and Pendragon 6e (which were already mentioned):
  • Cities Without Number by Kevin Crawford/Sine Nomine Publishing (the Kickstarter is scheduled for February 1st, 2023 and if I got it right, the game should also come out in 2023)
  • Mothership 1e by Tuesday Knight Games (since it didn't make it into the public this year)
