Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra are coming to the tabletop gaming space, thanks to a new licensing deal between ViacomCBS and Magpie Games. Both eras will be depicted in these books, giving players the tools to create their own protagonists. Someone might create a group of Earth Kingdom heroes during the war with the Fire Nation, or a waterbender finding their fortune in Republic City.
The roleplaying game’s core book is planned for a February 2022 release. Two supplements will follow. The first one, to be released in August 2022, is named Republic City. Republic City was first established in The Legend of Korra as a newly industrial and modern city with a population of millions of people from all over the world. Republic City has a lot of political conflict, industrial sectors, and triad gangs that menace the public.
The second supplement, The Spirit World, will be released in February 2023. The Spirit World was a major element of both The Last Airbender and Korra, a parallel plane of reality full of spirits that embody aspects of nature, or creatures like Koh, the Face Stealer.
Magpie Games is also developing a RPG based on the board game Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right. Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra are enjoying a second wave of fandom, thanks to their recent arrival on Netflix.
