Magpie Games, publisher of Root: The RPG, is making another addition into the world of RPGs. They announced last February 3, 2021 that they have made a deal with ViacomCBS Consumer Products to make an RPG based on Avatar: The Last Airbender, and The Legend of Korra.
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.
Mark Diaz Truman, CEO of Magpie Games.
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.
Pam Kaufman, President, Global Consumer Products, ViacomCBS.
Both of these series are acclaimed for the world that has been built around the art of bending the 4 primary elements; Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. I’m personally very excited to make my very own Earthbender or maybe a swordsman like Sokka, who knows?
The Core Rulebook for this RPG is slated to be released next year February 2022, while the 2 supplements, Republic City and The Spirit World, will follow in August 2022, and February 2023.
