In 2013 Alyssa partnered with James Carpio to create a map for his “Cosmology of Role-playing” article, which was released in Gygax Magazine #1. The article presented the universe of role-playing games emanating out from the “Big Bang” of TSR and Dungeons and Dragons: the publishers and the games they had released broken out by year.

This was an exceptional article, and the accompanying map was eye-catching, but it covered less than 100 games.

For the anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons and our great hobby, Alyssa thought it was time to bring this map up to date: with every game that has ever been released since the dawn of our Role-playing “Big Bang”.

The “rules” for this map were simple: it has to be a roleplaying system (not a campaign settings or scenario) , and if there were multiple versions, only the first – under its original name – was to be captured (with some noticeable exceptions).

The result is over 1,300 game systems created since the heart of our Role-playing universe!

A small disclaimer from Alyssa: She endeavored to capture every title, but this is an ever-growing universe and something may have been missed … or recently released. Let her know if you feel something was missed, or any new titles you feel need to belong here: she has vowed to iterate on this great piece for future versions!
