Avatar: The Last Airbender Returning As a Tabletop RPG

How long was it since you felt true satisfaction? For many of us, it was the 19th of July 2018. More than 12 years ago, the final episode of Avatar: the Last Airbender hit the small screens. Avatar Aang defeated Ozai and the world lived happily ever after. They do not make it like them anymore. Avatar: the Last Airbender was how people got into the knack of watching animated shows. Legend Of Korra was good but it always lived under TLA’s shadow. If you want to relive the glory days of Avatar again, then this might pique your interest.

Avatar: the Last Airbender is about to return. This time, it will come as a tabletop RPG. You can thank Magpie Games for this piece of news. The company has struck a deal with the parent studio to come up with the RPG Game. The core rulebook for the game will be released next year in February 2022 along with the game. So we have to wait for a year to get their hands on it. Magpie games has sweetened the deal for us. They are releasing two expansion packs on Republic city and the Spirit World for us. So it will be worth the wait.

The playbook will have rules and regulations for players to create their own unique characters for the role playing game. The characters can be either from The Last Airbender or Legend Of Korra. Magpie Games is a well known name in the arena of tabletop games. They were the ones that released masks: A new Generation, a role playing game based on the popular board game Roots.

Mark Diaz Truman, CEO of Magpie Games, was heard saying this n a press release.

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.”

If you guys do not know who James Mendez Hodes is, let us enlighten you. He is THE guy to go to for designing Tabletop RPGs. His earlier works have been with Fantasy Flight Games and Wizards of the Coast.

The last episode of Legend Of Korra aired back in 2014. The Avatar universe has been kept alive via a series of critically acclaimed graphic novels depicting the events of the Avatar universe. There is also a live action Avatar; The Last Airbender project in the pipeline but it has since been in development hell. Future generations may never come to know the magic that was Avatar anymore. This Tabletop RPG game seems like a step in the right direction. It will take a year for the game to hit the stores but we cannot wait to play it. The wait will be truly worth it for sure.
