Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Cortex Prime?

They just released the final version of Cortex Prime to backers and the public version is supposed to go live in September. Has anybody looked at this or tried it? I've seen the previews on the Cortex RPG website and it looks pretty cool, but I find it kind of confusing - probably because I haven't played any versions of Cortex before. It's supposed to be pretty simple and narrative driven, which sounds great.

This game sounds incredibly interesting. I'm always up for narrative-driven and rules-light. Can't wait for there to be more genres.

I love Smallville and Marvel Heroic seems pretty good as well.
I'll definitely buy this one. Might make a game out of it on here at some point. I dont know yet

I backed Prime, and was a long time fan of Cortex Plus before that. My first game as a player here, and the system that brought me to Gamersplane, was Cortex system.

I kind of hate hyping Prime like this, cuz the Kickstarter was a mismanaged-at-best, or even purposefully exploitative, joke... BUT...

It's probably my favorite "tool box" system. Once you learn it's ins and outs, and how you can relabel and tweak the different "knobs and dials" that it gives you to craft a different feel for a different setting, it is just incredibly powerful, and fast, and flexible, and you can literally create a pretty customized level of crunch and unique feel for your own unique (or an already established IP) setting, with relative ease.

Under the three different Cortex Plus models (which Prime is just a unified version of) one could probably hack up a custom setting in 30 minutes or less.

It's a very narrative focused system, with a range of crunch from "Fate-like" (minimal) to probably Savage Worlds-esque or D&D 5E (mid-range).

I’ve been hoping that one day someone would run the Supernatural Role Playing Game on Gamers Plane. Most of my experience is with Cortex Classic, but I’m interested in seeing how Prime works.
