Magpie Games has signed a deal with Viacom CBS to develop a roleplaying game system based on the hit animated shows Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
Magpie Games publishes TTRPGs and board games, with their best-known game being Root. Their other products include Cartel, Chaos Worlds, Zombie World and Urban Shadows.
The tabletop game will allow players to play in the time period of either Avatar or its spin-off/sequel show The Legend of Korra, and will consist of a core rulebook due for release in February 2022 and two expansions, Republic City and The Spirit World, due in August 2022 and February 2023 respectively. The game will use the Powered by the Apocalypse ruleset used for Apocalypse World and Dungeon World.
Netflix are currently in pre-production on a live-action TV show basted on Avatar: The Last Airbender, although that project is mired in controversy after the two creators and showrunners quit last year, citing network interference, with fans now calling for it to be scrapped.
