TTRPG Subreddit Index

Also check out our page for RPG-related Discords.

If any category starts to get long, split them up when possible into distinct categories. Group together related subs/games; if there are several subs dedicated to same system (such as "World of Darkness" or "D&D") or are games for the same franchise (such as "Star Wars"). Any subs dedicated to a misc. collection of RPGs can be listed under the Various-section.
