MajiMonsters is a brand new tabletop role-playing game (RPG) coming to Kickstarter in January 2015. In MajiMonsters, you take the role of a binder, a hero who catches, trains, and battles with monsters. MajiMonsters combines the fun and excitement of the ever popular monster training genre with the thrill, depth, and camaraderie of a pen-and-paper RPG.

If you’re new to tabletop gaming, take a look here to get an idea of what you might expect from a role-playing game, but don’t be daunted! First-time adventurers will find MajiMonsters an easy game system to master, which only requires the use of one book, some basic equipment, friends, and, most importantly, your imagination. Though we provide the rules to get started, the magic of MajiMonsters is that you have the freedom to roam in a world of your creation, become the hero (or villain) of your own story, and befriend wondrous creatures. Your MajiMonsters story is unique as your imagination!

As we get closer to our Kickstarter launch date, you can learn more about the world of MajiMonsters:

While it’s true that new MajiMonsters are always being discovered, a few common ones have been catalogued here by the world’s scholars. Every MajiMonster has its own unique traits, no two of which are exactly the same. 

In MajiMonsters, your hero is called a binder and has the ability to control captured Monsters, turning potential enemies into allies. Learn about each of the six binder classes, what skills they possess, and how they differ in their respective approaches to training MajiMonsters.

Affinities are the magical natures that shape the stuff of magic. Every MajiMonster is bound to at least one affinity, and when two MajiMonsters battle having the right affinity can make all the difference. Discover the ten affinities and how each one stands uniquely from the rest. 

The setting for MajiMonsters is rich with history and atmosphere. Read the lore that led up to the creation of the MajiMonsters, the disasters that followed, and the background behind the first binders. Also included are the accounts of several people who live in the world of MajiMonsters, their tales and perspectives, and the events that befell them.
