The 20 Most Read General RPG Articles This Year: A Retrospective

Yesterday, I posted a list of the The 20 Most Read D&D Articles of 2018. Today it's the turn of the the General RPG articles - the 10 most read (non-D&D) RPG articles of the year! What were they? Here goes....

Over the year, the site has posted hundreds of articles generating millions of views between them. These lists can only hope to scratch the surface -- many, many other big topics came up over the last 12 months, but these lists are just the 20 most viewed out of those hundreds of articles.

Note that by "not D&D" I mean "not official D&D from WotC". Things like Matt Colville's Kickstarter, or the D&D movie, while D&D-related, are in the "not-D&D" lists.

Some of the below are news pieces, while others are editorial pieces with prompted lots of discussion.

Pathfinder 2nd Edition's big announcement was #1 in the Non-D&D Chart. It would easily be #1 in the Top 20 General RPG Article Chart, too, were it included in that list, and would place very high in the D&D Chart were it in that list.
