Fed up of Western RPGs? Kalymba is an RPG written by Daniel Pirraça, from Brazil. It was successfully funded in Brazilian Portuguese about a year ago and is now getting ready to Kickstarter in English.
A South American take on an African-inspired setting. Unique.
Writing on Reddit, Daniel Pirraça noted
To me, adapting mythological African creatures to a high-fantasy setting is a Herculean task since it’s really hard finding enough information about them on books and websites. Bruno Kopte, a friend of mine, is trying to help me — he even made a bestiary-list with 101 spirits and monsters from African folklore, but many details are still lacking and that’s pretty annoying since I want to explore those creatures to the fullest. It makes me want to travel to Africa, so I can interview native people and get what I need, haha. Nevertheless, I already have a lot of cool creatures and its respective illustrations. Some of them are being visually represented for the very first time.
The classless RPG uses a 2d6 mechanic and builds characters with points.
