Ten New/Upcoming RPGs Worthy of Your Attention in Late 2016

JeffatGenCon2016It goes without saying I’m a huge fan of roleplaying games. In fact, it was Advanced Dungeons & Dragons which introduced me to table top gaming way back in 1978; stupid me unknowingly bought a module (if memory serves it was actually G1- Steading of the Hill Giant Chief) thinking it was the actual game. Doh! I’ll cut myself a little slack here since I was all of ten years old at the time but just reading through that adventure made me want to find out what this new-fangled roleplaying was all about. Obviously, I was off and running, never to look back.

Flash forward far more years than I’d care to admit and I still firmly love RPGs as there are so many weird and wonderful game systems on the market, you’d be hard pressed to find any topic or genre which doesn’t have a correlating game available. Today, just the same as when I first entered the hobby, there are loads of “same old, same old” releases which get a ton of press they probably don’t truly deserve while more worthy releases get lost in the noise. There’s so much more out there beside the venerable Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder folks should check out so that’s why I thought I’d take a look at few roleplaying games which have recently been released, or are coming before the end of the year, which should be firmly on your radar.

Let me point out, I haven’t received payment nor review copies – not that I don’t love review copies and always welcome them – to share any of these titles with you; these are just some cool looking RPGs which have caught my eye and certainly not paid product placements. I also don’t claim the following are the only titles you should have on your radar but simply some which have really piqued my interest. If you feel I’ve left out a release that should be getting more love, by all means let me know in the comments section.

Hi Jeff, a couple of months ago I released a new sci-fi RPG which was successfully kickstarted earlier this year – Starguild: Space Opera Noir. About 190 backers have copies, and I’ve had great feedback from them, but as a single person outfit with his first publication, I’ve not been able to get that much exposure for it.

I’ve included a link to the Drive Thru Rpg page for it in the ‘website’ link in this comment, although if you think it would be interesting enough to have a look at in more detail, I’d happily send you a complimentary pdf.

Other information about it is on the starguildrpg.com website too.

I hope you don’t mind me posting this, but you did ask if there were other lesser known RPGs which might benefit from some love 🙂
