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).


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.

Why is Broken Compass - Adventure Role Playing Game and Ruin Master not in here?

Hate to say this, but MoreDiceForUs may be the biggest UK publisher now, so no longer an Indie suitable for Kickstarter for all intents and purposes.
It won't be long before all major publications are crowdfunded. It's a solid business model and established companies provide better value and a safer bet for backers. The "intents and purposes" of crowdfunding has and continues to change...

Twilight 2000, Rolemaster (unified), Prowlers and Paragons Ultimate Edition. FYI: I would have voted for Ascendant from Autarch, which I did the kickstarter for, but it wasn't listed.

Onslaught 108

i vote for dungeons and dragons advanced 5 editions. Please win and make psionic a true different power system like 2 edition and entire psionic class too.


1st and 2nd place are neck and neck, as are 5 & 6, and 7 & 9. It's a tight race!
This is what our hobby space should look like, when the shadow of the 800lb gorilla does not take all the light away from the smaller publishers.

Though, obviously, many nominees are offspring of the most popular game in the world, anyway.

@TrippyHippy well, you were right; Pendragon was popular. I got 4 out of 10.
Not gloating about it. However, Pendragon is a significant game for many and, as with any game that has a 35+ year history behind it, it has had plenty of time to build a following. The reason it probably isn't played at conferences much is because it is a game that is mostly played with long campaigns (like, multi-generational), rather than one shots. However....

Guess time to look for a quickstart if one exists.

I read pretty regularly here and I have heard of only a few of these too. That just reminds me of how niche most RPGs really are. If this were the pre-Kickstarter days, most of these would be lucky to ever publish more than the core rules before disappearing into the "Lack of Sales" Afterlife. In the 80's and 90's, I bought the core rules for many games, only for them to get little or no support.
Ah, yes... I remember using WWIVnet to find out about supplements for Reich Star... and was told one was in the works - the Tech Book. Been waiting almost 3 decades... no longer interested in running the game... but would love to see the techbook still. (It was mechanically close to GURPS, but using different dice.)
