(RPG) Most Eagerly Anticipated RPG Release in 2009

Well...hopefully in 2009 anyway!

Now admittedly I don't know the full schedule of everyones releases as yet but for me so far (and for the last 2+ years since hearing about the project) the game I am SO wanting to see is Evil Hat's 'The Dresden Files RPG' based upon the novels by Jim Butcher.

I absolutely love the world setting, the background and the characters. For me it's a great alternative to the World of Darkness and in many ways what I wish the World of Darkness could have been. The background on the Vampire Courts, the Fae, the Magicans order and conflict between the Infernal and the Holy, the whole package is fantastically thought out and so alluring.

I am certainly addicted to the novels - and have read in the last couple of weeks 'Welcome to the Jungle' (the graphic novel that Jim Butcher wrote) plus Backup which is a novellette based upon one of the other characters in the sereis he also wrote - and am currently watching Season One of the TV series on DVD. The TV series doesn't have a patch on the books themselves but is pretty good in its own right. I can understand certain changes they put in for the show and some of the episodes so far would make good little adventures in a RPG even if there isn't enough depth in them to become a full story.

It's safe to say that I'm very jealous of Fred and co for being able to work on and publish The Dresden Files RPG and I can't wait to see it in print so I can have a copy gracing my shelves and even (shock horror) try and get a campaign started.
