Hello and Welcome to The RPG Academy. In this very special bonus episode Michael ( @TheRpgAcademy ) is joined by Lewanika from the Tabletop Journeys Podcast as well as Kevin Stacy from the Game Knight Heroes podcast for a cross-pod event – the 2023 Ultimate TTRPG Bookshelf Draft with Chris Burlew from the Redemption Podcast acting as our Draftmaster aka the Commissioner.
The Draft proceeded in Snake Draft format with Lewanika going in 1st position, then Kevin and then Michael.
We had 6 categories to draft from and we could draft them in any order we wanted. Our Categories were:
The Cornerstone. Any version of D&D or Pathfinder (though you COULD go outside if you wanted)
The Contender. A TTRPG that wasn’t one of the big two, but maybe should be or could be in the future.
The Indie Darling. An Indie RPG that can never get enough live.
Genre 1 and Genre 2 – any TTRPG that would fit as a genre game.
Wildcard – anything we wanted including a duplicate of another category.
We have our selections as:
