Magpie Games announced earlier this year they had secured a multi-year licensing agreement with ViacomCBS Consumer Products to produce the roleplaying game. Avatar Legends: The  Roleplaying Game will be the first release with two supplements to follow in August 2022 and  February 2023.  

“We’re so honored and excited to announce the Kickstarter for Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying  Game,” says Mark Diaz Truman, CEO of Magpie Games. “We have spent the last ten years connecting with backers via Kickstarter, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to involve fans through crowdfunding. There’s a whole world to explore in the Avatar Legends universe, and we can’t wait to show you all that we have planned!” 

The Kickstarter will run from August 3rd through September 2nd, serving as a pre-order mechanism for the direct-to-consumer market while announcing the game and making it accessible to fans of Avatar that may have not yet tried a tabletop RPG.  

Fans can enjoy a sneak peek of the game by downloading the free Avatar Legends: The RPG Quickstart through www.magpiegames.com/avatar. The quickstart contains all the material needed to try the game, including a new adventure featuring six pre-generated heroes! 

Magpie Games is proud to feature the work of a diverse team of designers and writers for Avatar  Legends: The RPG, including Asian-American and Indigenous contributors who have been working on the game since late 2020.  

“One of the best parts of working on Avatar Legends: The RPG is getting to dive into all the rich details of this complex world and seeing how each era impacts the next,” says Yeonsoo Julian Kim,  one of the contributing designers and writers. “I’m excited for players to tell stories that explore what their characters personally value, as well as how those values fit into the larger picture of the world’s history. There is a lot worth fighting for in this universe, and not everyone is fighting for the  same things.”  

Other contributors include Sen Foong-lim (Legend of Korra: Pro-Bending Arena, Coded Chronicles series), Daniel Kwan (Asians Represent podcast, Candlekeep Chronicles), and Laguna Pueblo writer and activist Lee Francis.

Avatar Legends: The RPG uses the Powered by the Apocalypse game engine, similar to many of  Magpie Games’ other products, such as Masks: A New Generation, Bluebeard’s Bride, and Urban Shadows.
