Avatar tabletop RPG in 2022
Magpie Games is developing a tabletop RPG surrounding the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe. Wrote:The Avatar: The Last Air Bender RPG will be a tabletop role-playing game — that is to say, it will be a game similar to stuff like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and GURPS. This new RPG is being produced by Magpie Games, a tabletop developer that already has 10 games under its belt.

The RPG will allow players to create characters in the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe using "playbooks," a special set of templates that help you make an interesting and compelling character. It's not quite clear if players would be able to play as the show's characters, but a tabletop RPG typically allows the players and game master enough creative freedom to do exactly that.

"We’re incredibly excited to bring the tales of brave benders and loyal friendships to tabletop roleplaying games; we know so many fans of both series have been waiting years for this moment!" -- Magpie Games CEO Mark Diaz Truman

Several pre-built quests have also been detailed. You could protect merchants from the Triple Threat Triad, travel through a spirit portal to rescue a child trapped in the Spirit World, negotiate peace between two rival factions in the Earth Kingdom, or explore all sorts of other interesting mysteries in the ATLA universe — all of which should prove for some pretty interesting player experiences out of the box.

Of course, this is a tabletop role-playing game — that means that the game master and players will likely have the tools to make up their own adventures, too. Considering the amount of ATLA fanfiction out there in the world, I'm sure that the show's fans can cook up some pretty interesting stuff on their own, too.

The Avatar: The Last Airbender RPG release date will be sometime in February 2022 — that's when the Core Book will be launching. This book should have everything players need to get a game going.

Today's announcement also notes that that won't be the end — supplements for the game will arrive in August 2022 and February 2023. It's unclear what other supplemental material will be released (if any), but Magpie Games says that it's secured a "multi-year" license for the franchise.

For now, you can sign up for Magpie Games' newsletter to stay apprised of this game's development.
