Waiting on TTRPGs from Critical Role or Chris Metzen? Here are some of our favorite indie Tabletop RPGs in the meantime
This week, former Blizzard Senior Vice President of Story & Franchise Development Chris Metzen announced the formation of Warchief Gaming -- previously a gaming club and now a development studio for tabletop games -- and on the same day, Critical Role announced the formation of Darrington Press, which will also be focusing on tabletop game development.
