As we do every year, it's time to vote for the most anticipated tabletop roleplaying game of the coming year! Here is last year's Top 10 (spoiler: the winner was the Dune RPG, which hasn't actually made it out yet - will it make it onto the list for the third year running?) Previous winners include 13th Age (2013), Star Wars Force & Destiny (2015), Rifts for Savage Worlds (2016), Trudvang Chronicles , and Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition (2018), and Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (2019).

VOTING IS NOW OVER

We took nominations. Now it's time to vote. What will be the most anticipated RPG of 2021? You can vote for up to 3 games. Voting will be open for 7 days, until January 2nd.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Why isn't my nomination on the list? Check the nomination thread. If you made a valid nomination (name, link) and it's not in the poll, let me know ASAP so I can add it.
  • How does a game qualify? It must have been nominated by you in the nomination thread with a valid formatted nomination, it must be a standalone tabletop RPG (not a setting, adventure, supplement, etc.), and it's projected release date to the general public (not just Kickstarter backers) should be in 2021.

Nope. We said that Bryan Talbot was releasing a new Luther Arkwright graphic novel, and at some point we'd update the game, but we never said we were releasing it in 2021. So someone's jumped the gun.

Cool; I’ll remove it then! Maybe next year! :)

The good news is the updated game is anticipated by people, even if it doesn’t have a release date!

I vote for SLA Industries, 2nd Edition and Monte Cook's Diamond Throne.
SLA because I've been a fan since the 90s, it's wonderfully dark, and they asked. Diamond Throne because I had the books for 3e back in the day and I sort of, accidentally joined the Kickstarter. The more I think about it, the more I'm looking forward it.

Wondering why Luther Arkwright is on this list? It was released by The Design Mechanism in 2015 and is still in print.
That was a supplemental release for Mythras. What you proposed in at least one communication, essentially as a new edition, is for Luther Arkwright to be a standalone RPG. You are waiting on the new material that Bryan Talbot is working on, having renewed your license with him. It is speculation therefore, how long it will take for the game to come out - maybe not 2021 but 2022? - but you did say it was coming. This is merely an anticipation poll - some things have been in the charts for years.

Pretty much just Thirsty Sword Lesbians (also read the book Gideon The Ninth, if you haven't. Angry Lesbian Necromancers In Space!) and Shadow of The Weird Wizard. Most of the rest I've never heard of, though some have cool names.

For the sake of equity it is probably also worth noting that Trinity Continuum: Aberrant is also, technically, not a standalone game but a setting supplement for Trinity Continuum. It does have new rules regarding superpowers, but you’d need Trinity Continuum to play it. Not sure if this applies to other things on the list.

If that’s the case, it’s not eligible.

I didn’t make that nomination, although I am a kickstarter backer and have seen the preliminary PDF. It isn’t standalone.

There are other Onyx Path/White Wolf games on that list that will be standalone though. They have different policies on different lines.

I’m just wondering if there are other games on the list that are really supplements for generic core systems? Pathfinder for Savage Worlds, for example?

Someone on the Terminator RPG Quickstart thread mentioned an interesting way to count real rules editions, not just market branding editions. Do D&D Holmes is considered different an edition from B/X and BECMI.

Now that approach raises problems counting editions for game books with two rulsets, like the original Achtung Cthulhu RPG from Modiphius that includes two different rulsets in one book, including Call of Cthulhu rules. Does that make it two editions on one book? And does the new Achtung Cthulhu 2d20 then become a 3rd edition?

I have seen multiple rules in other books like Kobold Press Midgard Campaign Setting for Pathfinder and Fantasy Age in one book.
