Kalijor. Paul Lell bietet über die „andere“ Crowdfunding-Plattform (ja, es gibt weitere, aber sind diese relevant?) sein „eierlegendes Wollmilchsau“-Rollenspiel an.
Nach eigenen Aussagen eignet sich sein Entwurf für verschiedene Altersgruppen (ab 4 Jahre?). Es wächst gewissermaßen mit. Mechanisch unterstützt es das Spiel ohne und mit Würfel (2 10-seitige Würfel) und darüber hinaus adressiert Kalijor gleich zwei Genre, nämlich Fantasy und Science Fiction.

„The Kalijor Role Playing Game project is intended to not only bring the world of Kalijor home to your gaming table, but to help you introduce the concept of pen and paper role playing games to the next generation of gamers.
With the rule engine we’ve built, the system can be increased or decreased in complexity, allowing us to build three different versions of the game, all using the same core rules. This means that young kids, ages 4-7 can play the game (with parental assistance and supervision) and learn to recognize numbers, do basic math, and begin to establish and hone critical thinking and imaginative problem solving skills. We call this the ‚Grow With Me RPG‘ system.
Genetic engineering is commonplace in the future.
For kids ages 7-13, we add in another layer of logistics, giving them more attributes, more bonuses, and more granular control over their character’s progression and advancement. But we still keep the game quick and easy by not bogging them down with the minutia of character generation, tracking experience, leveling up, etc. Character progression is tracked more like a video game with advancement handled by upgrading equipment.
For older kids and adults alike, the full version of the game is a robust and feature-rich system that allows for full character development, more bonuses, skill progression and acquisition, and more.

The Kalijor RPG is built on its own, built from the ground up, game engine that allows groups to play with or without dice, depending upon the style of play you and your group prefer. If you choose to play without dice, then the skill ranking system allows the group to decide success or failure of actions and combat, and if you choose to play with dice, then the game will support you with a robust and comprehensive system that will meet your needs.
Combat rolls are made on 2D10, which serves to normalize results and increase the relevance and importance of skills and attributes. A side benefit of this is to make critical success and failure a much more rare occurrence (1 in 56 odds).
The skill ranking system allows for both contested skill rolls and rolls against target difficulties based upon the complexity of the task and situation.
- Play with or without dice!
- A complete new skill, ability, and spell system.
- Combat can be story driven with bonuses and play by play rolls, or quick and dirty with higher level skill rolls (or no rolls at all if you decide to play without dice).
- Explore Virtual Reality as you attempt to hack through firewalls and other network security.
- Build your own space ship to haul cargo, transport people, or harry Conglomerate forces.
- Build your character from an extensive list of cybernetic upgrades, genetic modifications, or special abilities; or try to take on the world as a good old basic human being. Then switch to Kalijor and access an impressive list of spells and equipment.
Play as employees of any of the ‚Big Five‘ corporations that make up the Conglomerate, trying to maintain order and harmony, or as the outcast Dissidents, trying to make ends meet on the fringes of society, or strike out against the Conglomerate.
Play a science fiction campaign, a fantasy campaign, or move back and forth between worlds as your story requires. You decide!

About the world of Kalijor
The human race has moved out among the planets to escape a devastated Earth. Massive corporations control every aspect of life. While nobody who is willing to play by the rules will go hungry, or without a home, there are those who strive to take back their independence from the corporate Conglomerate. Their battles to determine the fate of the human race take place in the real world, in cyber-space, and in the virtual world of Kalijor, a massively multiplayer online RPG that has become a hub of commerce and communication for a humanity spread out across the stars.“
