Back in 2017, I stumbled over Fantasy AGE, a 3d6 based fantasy tabletop RPG by Green Ronin. I was all in. It was the breath of fresh air I needed from D&D and D&D-esque games. I even featured it a few times in articles about games to try or alternatives to D&D. So when I heard there was a 2nd edition coming, I knew that I had to check it out!
So, in the last month or so, Wizards and its adjacent organizations have been involved in some serious issues around race, sexuality, and some stuff I will not reprint here because wow did their vetting process fail to pick up on some red flags. Their responses have been weak, milquetoast affairs that do nothing to actually address anything, and several well-known podcasts and live plays have publicly announced that they are moving away from 5e D&D as the basis for their games and shows. So, what are the options out there? What non-D&D, and non-D&D-esque/based games are there out there for you? Let’s talk fantasy games!
