Kysmit is the culmination of over 4 years of work; The idea of kysmit was born from the frustration of not having a PnP RPG System that ever had my full devotion. With over 25 years of gaming experience; and the help of family and friends, the next generation System is almost ready. Now I need your help to bring Kysmit to everyone.
Your Hero is waiting.
How does Kysmit work compared with other mainstream systems?To answer this Question, I have to first explain that not all “Mainstream Systems” work the same way. Some use multiples of a single type of die, others use mainly one type for all conflict resolution with a smattering of the other types to fill in were needed.
So to truly answer this question, all I can tell you is how Kysmit handles conflict resolution.
Kysmit doesn't use the D20 at all; it uses a Dice Value scale matrix that consists of the other 5 polyhedral dice. (D4, D6, D8, D10, and D12). And depending on the situation in the game, the player will be able to roll different values in this scale to exceed an ever growing target number Threshold.
In Kysmit, the players will use their Focus, Attributes, Abilities, and Skills; plus a little luck to beat their foes in physical or social combat and the world around them.
In gamer orientated vernacular – Skills
As any situation arises, the player's allocated Focus is added to an Attribute or Ability (depending on the situation); and then added to the skill level to result in the final skill value for the situation.
This Value is then referenced on the dice scale matrix to give the dice use for the conflict resolution.
IE. (Allocated Focus + ((Attribute or Ability) + Skills) = DV for the Skill)
Plan to utilize the revenue.
Any and all currency made from the from this Kickstarter will go for a professional editor, production costs for the rewards levels, payment for the commissioned Art pieces and play-test materials to fully test the Final Beta version.
Some of the key features of Kysmit.

Risks and challenges
Challenges and Risks are a part of everyday life; this is known.
Obstacles in life are meant to be overcome. One such obstacles that I have seen is fear; to let go of something that I have been working on for so long and trust that it will be liked.
Trepidation is described as; apprehension: fear or uneasiness about the future or a future event.
The answer to Trepidation is Encouragement.
As my biggest supporter in this endeavor, my wife, said among other things "...If you like it; others will too."
The only setbacks that could occur; would be the cost of printing to rise, or losing the project. I have a backups of my backups and the source that i have for printing is solid so that is no issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
