Okay, Squints! So you want to know about the Syystem, do ya?  

Well listen up... 

Syystem is a new Role-playing game set in a world where the laws of physics - for that matter, everything - is breaking down.  Laws, religion, marriage, computers operating systems, all of it is now working incorrectly.  

Now you are trying to survive the system where nothing is as it seems.  Bankers control government, politicians control corporations, Shoguns control the people,  Monks have to balance out the peace through violence, Hacker Mages are learning the origins of a cyber world powering their magic.   What makes SYYSTEM different?   We have 3 factors that make Syystem a game with a different twist.

  • 100 rule changes:  The games breaks and the rules change.  This ensures that no 2 games will play the same even if you play the same campaign more than once. Technique (aka spells) 
  • Consequence Chart:  You learn the true origins of casting Techniques and why they can't be controlled.  What happens when a Technique can't be controlled?  Play and find out..... 
  • Reboot Challenge:  Doubt the ruling of the Game Master.  Again, the game is broken, as is Syystem.  Players can challenge a GM if they don't like a call.  

Play with weapons that range from automatic machine-guns, to a Handheld-Dragon-Cannon-Launcher.  From 150 lbs swords wielded by an 109 lbs Ninja, to a killer mechanical piggy bank that a Mob Banker uses

The pig is real..."RUN!!!"
The pig is real..."RUN!!!"

Play 12 Class Types that break into 3 subtypes (36 classes all total)  

  • Ambasador class
  • Banker Class
  • Corporate Soldier Class
  • Goblin Merchant Class
  • Hypnosis Doc Class
  • Mage Class
  • Monk Class
  • Private Eye Class
  • Ronin Class
  • Shadow Class
  • Space Captain Class
  • Space Merines Class (Yes, spelled with an E)
  • Note:  In Syystem Space Merinces are the Paladin Class: and you learn that the YY have a special meaning.  They are pronounced with an E sound.  Syystem is also a sister game of our first game Myythic.  At level 6 Myythic Paladins get Wings, which is why Space Merinces have Combat wings for gear.

Cactyys Totem Entertainment, LLC strives to create unique gaming experiences for the whole family to enjoy. We're a gaming company wholly owned, operated and run by gamers who enjoy playing games for a living. With stunning artwork developed by our own A-La Watters and a custom designed mechanics system by John Geddes, we're sure this game will set itself apart from the rest of the games out on the market.    

If you want to play in a world where both magic and technology help determine your character's future, and have fun doing it, then Syystem is the game system for you.   

Syystem is a traditional Role-Playing game in that it's run by a Game Master. For those of you who are fans of our previous game, Myythic, which is ran without a Game Master, this will be a different experience for you. However, Syystem is in a related world to Myythic - although you'll have to buy the book to find out how.

Stretch Goals: 

$25,000.00 If we reach $25k, we'll be including in the Core Syystem book an additional chapter featuring a fully written adventure for beginning level players to get you started.   

$50,000.00 If we reach $50k, in addition to the above stretch goal we'll also include an additional Book of NPCs currently in development which will be sent at no additional charge to all backers of $100.00 or more (PDF copy available to backers of $50.00 or more) 

Stay tuned, if we make these Stretch goals, we may add others

Risks and challenges

Syystem is a game system being developed wholly in-house by Cactyys Totem Entertainment, LLC. As such, the main hurdle in completing the project is our own time management and staff's personal limitations.

We will be dedicating our team to getting out Syystem by the end of February 2019, so the product and all rewards should be ready to ship by April.

Your funding of this project goes to Research and Development of the actual game; play-testing the mechanics; printing costs; marketing; and legal and other fees. Any additional funds go towards develop-ment of further projects in our gaming line-up. Our goal should allow for sufficient funding capital to easily make our deadline and fulfill all rewards listed herein.

If any delays come about, we will notify all backers in a timely manner so that they can plan accordingly. We offer 100% transparency in our dealings and want our backers to know that we are a company built around the concept that gaming is more than just a hobby, but rather it is a way of life. Gaming is a legitimate artistic form of expression and we want our games to reflect the diversity that can be found in the gaming community. We value all of our team, our backers, and our local gaming community for helping us play-test and put out the best game we possibly can.
