Avatar: The Last Airbender Tabletop RPG Smashes Kickstarter Goal
Even as video gaming technology continues to evolve, traditional tabletop gaming simultaneously marks its resurgence in recent years to further aplomb. As the demand for new tabletop experiences continues to grow, one tactic tabletop game creators have opted for is taking classic franchises and translating them into a tabletop format. So far, this has happened for everything from Batman: The Animated Series to the Power Rangers. Now, following the series’ return to popularity in recent years, a new Avatar: The Last Airbender tabletop RPG has surfaced and already exceeded its crowdfunding expectations.
Avatar Legends: The RPG has been on Kickstarter for an hour…what an hour it’s been! We funded in 16 minutes and we’re at 1,600 backers and climbing! Thank you to the community for all the support! We’re excited to be on this journey with you! Yip yip!https://t.co/7I0r3uV7HY pic.twitter.com/q7SAzjqCnE

Magpie Games provided a new update for the Avatar: The Last Airbender tabletop RPG on its official Kickstarter campaign page. A few days ago, the campaign had begun with a goal of reaching $50,000 in funding before the 30-day deadline. According to the update from Magpie Games, the campaign met its goal within sixteen minutes and only continued growing from there. As of writing, the project has amassed over $2.5 million in funding from over 20,000 supporters with 28 days still left to go for the campaign. With a variety of pledge levels offering a wide variety of physical goodies, the $75 and $100 seem to be the most popular, as they offer all the physical books and most of the stretch goals already met.
The Avatar: The Last Airbender tabletop RPG focuses largely on the elements introduced from the original Last Airbender anime series, but also includes many elements from The Legend of Korra series, as well as the lore and novel that takes place before the first series. The Avatar franchise had become more popular this past year, largely due to the original anime series being made available on Netflix during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. Hopefully, the success of this tabletop RPG only further encourages more Avatar games and media to be made. Who wouldn’t wanna play an Avatar MMORPG?
