TableTop host Wil Wheaton announced the title, cast, and premiere date of the TableTop spinoff RPG show: Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana.  The game will utilize Green Ronin’s forthcoming Fantasy AGE system in a setting of Wheaton’s own design, and will premiere on Geek & Sundry’s website  and YouTube channel on June 2.  The TableTop RPG spinoff was promised as part of the fundraising campaign for the third season of the show (see "'TableTop' to Launch RPG Show").

The game will be played using Fantasy AGE, the latest iteration of the Adventure Game Engine by Green Ronin Publishing, (see "'Dragon Age,' 'A Song of Ice and Fire,' 'Return to Freeport,' More").

I needed a system that was going to support the way I play roleplaying games, and that is--telling a story collaboratively with a group of players with me as the GM," Wheaton said.  He named off several major systems that he likes: D&D, Savage Worlds, Fate Core, and Green Ronin’s True20, then added, "I really wanted to use something that was released by an independent publisher.  I really wanted to bring something to the forefront of the roleplaying world that not many people are familiar with as I want them to be."

Wheaton’s own game setting will be a mash-up of the 1978 Heavy Metal movie and the Thundarr the Barbarian Saturday morning cartoon series, titled Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana.

The good news for the trade is that products tied to the show are planned.  "We're going to release Fantasy AGE and Titansgrave concurrently in August," Green Ronin's Chris Pramas told ICv2.

"It was incredibly difficult to cast this show.  We needed people who were comfortable improvising, who had experience playing roleplaying games, and who were available when we planned to shoot the show," Wheaton said.  The 10 week campaign will include Yuri Lowenthal (voice actor for several Ben 10 and Naruto series), Laura Bailey (voice actor for Soul Eater and Resident Evil: Degeneration), Alison Haislip (Attack of the Show!) and Hank Green.
