Magpie Games is a games publishing company founded in early 2011 by Mark Truman and Marissa Kelly. Since their inception, the company has financed almost all of their projects through crowdfunding, primarily focusing on tabletop roleplaying games but also branching out to other formats, including card games and card-based RPGs.[1]

On August 3, 2021, they launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game, which ran until September 2 of the same year, having raised over $9.5 million, making it the most successful Kickstarter campaign for a tabletop roleplaying game.[2][3] The game was subsequently released physically on January 25, 2023.[4]
