Re: Cortex Plus

I think the Hackers book is fairly self sufficient BUT owning any flavor of an existing Cortex book / game will at least provide a solid example if not a better framework. I'm not a huge Cortex guy though it was interesting enough to invest in Marvel Heroic, the original Firefly RPG, and the first s...

Re: FUNDING THE FUN (Selling Gaming Goodness)

After my first inquiry, I realized that small boxed parcels for even a single hardcover has a base price of $25. In other words, unless the book can be mailed in a padded envelope, and weigh somewhere under a couple of pounds, it will seem to fetch a much larger price when you compared the LOW price...

Re: Cortex Plus

Just noticed this. I finally got my copies of the Hackers Guide. Seem like you can set up your favorite genre of game with it without the need of the other Cortex game books. When I first backed it, I assumed it was complementary to existing books but looking through it, it is pretty self sufficient...

I would be normally all over this sort of thing and it would be typically something I would insist on getting in hardback. $55 + $25 shipping makes this considerably out of reach for me.

Check email and your junk/spam filters. I believe the email is tied to your account and RPGNow / Drivethru for the download so just providing a link may not work for you if you were a backer.

After years of playing with them, they are no big deal. It does add a certain element of min-maxing, or power-gaming to C&C games that is already present, but not as well defined until you add in advantages. The good thing about the ones in the CKG is that (and thank God for this) is that they are ...

Simple poll questions because I am likely introducing them in my next session. At first I found them intriguing as a concept (before the CKG was released) but thought they resembled Feats a bit. But since I have some whiny players, I am reconsidering my previous stance. Also, with the mention of the...

Neither the M&T nor PHB have 156 pages. Sure that's the right page #?

This was pointed out before the book went to p...
