There’s an Avatar RPG on the way, a tabletop game based on The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. At the helm is Magpie Games, the innovative publisher of such RPGs as the Root RPG, Masks, Urban Shadows and Bluebeard’s Bride to name a few.
The new TTRPG is slated for February 2022, in the multi-year deal, and two supplements already scheduled to follow. Republic City is expected in August 2022 and The Spirit World in February 2023.
Mark Diaz Truman, CEO of Magpie Games, said;
The stories of Avatar are so moving for us because they are joyous and heartbreaking. 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! We’re also thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Asian designers like James Mendez Hodes to bring the world of Avatar Aang and Avatar Korra to life in a way that’s true to the authentic, diverse spirit of both shows.”
The Avatar RPG will use playbooks, templates for players to quickly build compelling characters, and encounter the Triple Threat Triad in Republic City, explore the Spirit World or talk to merchants from the Earth Kingdom.
Pam Kaufman, President, Global Consumer Products, ViacomCBS, added;
We believe Magpie Games is the ideal partner to develop a roleplaying game based on Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Their commitment to supporting diverse content from diverse creators along with their exceptional game product made them the right choice to bring the world of Avatar to tabletop roleplaying games.”
