There’s an impressive pile of goodness coming our way in 2019; what are your highlights?

For me:

The Chronicles of Future Earth - because Sara Newton. The Quickstarter has revealed a clever fate adaptation set in a far future epic. I shall be running at Expo at least. I also want to get involved with the High Fantasy take on the Chronicles version of Fate.
Cypher 2nd Edition - I went a bit large on the Kickstarter and hoping for a nice tidy up of a game system that I’ve enjoyed running at conventions. Lots of great setting books are on their way too, so has the potential for some great actual play gaming
Starforge - I’m a big Ironsworn fan, so it is great to see an expansion (Sanctuary and Delve) and new themes coming - Starforge.
Genesys - In the Shadow of the Beanstalk - Android meets one of my favourite game systems.

Anticipating: Liminal
Vaguely interested in: Things from the Flood (TftL Kickstarter reward), Exapnse (Kickstarter) and possibly In the Shadow of the Beanstalk (because cyberpunk, but silly dice :( )

As I play almost not at all these days these are all just to read if I get the time. Hence, with the possible exception of Liminal, they will be pdf only. Don’t need more physical stuff.

I've over-backed kickstarters in recent years.

The tragic early death of Stewart Wieck has delayed delivery of quite a few choice products:
Aquelarre - Medieval Spanish BRP derived game fighting devils and demons from Christian mythology.
Paladin - A Charlemagne variant of Greg Stafford's great King Arthur Pendragon.
Talislanta - the new iteration of this original fantasy setting.

I've gone big on the new edition of Savage Worlds, as well as Triple Ace Games' Savage Musketeers Regime Diabolique.

I guess I'm one of very few Tavern regulars who are not writing for Liminal? ;-) I'm greatly looking forward to this and playing in this rich setting.

I'm hoping that more Capharnaum will arrive. I was surprised there were so few backers, I had guessed that with Mindjammer being so popular more would give this their support. The core book is excellent; but I do like ready to play adventures.
On past form I'm not expecting The Chronicles of Future Earth or Lex Arcana to arrive in 2019; more to look forward to in 2020. :)

In 2019 I shall continue to enlarge my collections of The One Ring, 13th Age, Symbaroum, Trudvang Chronicles, Lex Occultum, and Forbidden Lands! :)

Nah! There's quite a few of us around. I think it's just that creative people create a lot and so tend to post more than average.

Can get some "I didn't write anything for Liminal" T-shirts or badges made up if you want to start a club.....

Interested to get your take on that as a page turner review.

On past form you should expect Sarah to deliver on time.

In 2019 I shall continue to enlarge my collections of The One Ring, 13th Age, Symbaroum, Trudvang Chronicles, Lex Occultum, and Forbidden Lands! :)
Do we keep Trudvang as art books or try and actually play the Stormlands RAW on Thursdays? If the latter, then I'll run it...

Obviously, I'm really looking forward to Liminal and all that comes with it. But you knew that.

When it comes to other stuff, I'm most looking forward to:
Moria for the One Ring. Not to mention Laughter of Dragons in print
Hideous Creatures for Trail of Cthulhu
The Persephone Extraction for Night's Black Agents
Reign 2e
Termination Shock
Lex Arcana
The Yellow King
The Chronicles of Future Earth
Swords of the Serpentine

Highlights for 2019 (I hope):

The Princess Bride - I went for the deluxe book, just managed to talk myself out of the $200 Inconceivable Edition in the cherry wood box. Have I mentioned I'm a big fan of this film?
Cortex Prime - I want this to be great, and to inspire years of fantastic games.
Liminal - I definitely qualify for the "it wasn't me guv'nor" T-shirt, I'm just a backer. However, that brings me to...

Manifold - Simon, get your finger out!

Genesys, In the Shadow of the Beanstalk did not make Enworld's "Ten most anticipated RPGs" list, so thanks for remembering it, FirstAge.

http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?5866-Here-Are-The-10-Most-Anticipated-Tabletop-RPGs-Of-2019!

The others I await expectantly are Fria Ligan's Things from the Flood and Modiphus' Dune (actually Frank Herbert's Dune, the original and sequels, plus all his son's prequels are in the license). Chris Birch confirmed it will be powered by a rules engine I enjoy, 2d20, of course, but probably along the lines for Star Trek Adventures 2d20 rather than the lightweight John Carter of Mars version.

A Dune RPG that covers the vast time frame of the Dune universe offers so many options of play, including time jumps, artificial intelligence and cloning.

Also, Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE]) is already published in PDF, for fans of this generic engine.
