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!

I think Book means physical book available through 3-tier distribution; but Morrus didn't actually specify beyond the line above.
Based on previous years' debates, it is the actual public release of the release of the PDF that counts. So, no Bladerunner for example as the PDF is already available to the general public.
