This game was published in a periodical issue. There is no distinct RPG Item for the game. The database currently does not have the functionality to link the periodical article presenting the game directly to this RPG entry; thus, the RPG entry remains with the periodical.

If the game is released in some other format in the future, it can be listed as an RPG Item.
Paradigm is a generic, universal system written by S. Isaac Dealey; it was self-published and distributed by the author. A somewhat abbreviated version was serialized in Alarums & Excursions. The game was intriguing because it presented fairly abstract design principles which subsequently were projected into rules design.
