What was the RPG Pipeline

The RPG Pipeline was a posting board to keep track of upcoming tabletop rpgs from 2015 to 2021 (this Blogger version began in 2019). It covered new English language ttrpgs and ttrpgs going into crowdfunding.

"Once Time-Travel had been invented, it had always existed. The complete chronological chaos led to the inevitable 'Time War' – in which seemingly infinite time travelers on both sides of a never-ending conflict nearly tore the space-time continuum to shreds through constant alterations; an era linear-lifeforms know as 'World War 2'. To ensure Earth's timeline was not in constant flux, the government agency called Paradox Perfect was created — enforcing the past and protecting humanity's future. Often through completely unsupervised mayhem."

Paradox Perfect is a rules-light role-playing game focused on improvisational comedy and cooperative storytelling, stacking as many insane sci-fi and time-travel tropes on top of each other for maximum creativity and chaos. The players are members of the elite squad of time-cops known officially as “Paradox Perfect”, embarking on a bizarre quest through history to prevent time-crime - lest they fail and watch themselves twist and transform along with the timeline!


Currently in development - provided here is a prototype version for beta testing with some potential errors. Fixes, more future templates, gadgets, better rules explanations, and a sample story are on the way! In the meantime, check out the Three Black Halflings podcast for a hilarious live demo featuring TTRPG streamer Drakoniques and Brennan Lee Mulligan of Dropout's Dimension 20!
