I m one of the wierdos who ikes this than the A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) largely beloved Firefly RPG I believe that this book has everything you need to run a good Firefly game and its proto Savage Worlds system works really well for the setting hell Iike it than Savage Worlds itself I I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad love the verse Iike the idea behind the cortex system in practice though it was too confusing for myself and my players While the flavor Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children language that fills every page helped get you into the right headspace it became increasingly frustrating to rifle through the book and try and make sense of the rule system amidst the cloud of colorful verbiage I understand the new Firefly RPG uses a Cortex 20 that may well have streamlined the system but my players are just done with cortex all together so Il be running my next firefly campaign with a modified version of d20 modern possibly with some Dragonsbane lifts from this iterationike the money system planetary distances etc just converting all attributes and skills otherwise I keep picking this up at Barns Noble Lonestar Sanctuary looking at the 45 price tag and putting it right back down All the reviews say its great and what I veooked at in store Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator look great Someday it will be sitting on a discount table This is an excellent roleplaying game book set in Joss Whedon s FireflySerenity universe The mechanics are deadly simple and character creation is fast and easy This is version one of the Cortex system but it s still serviceable than many other RPG mechanics It s hard to rate an Here's How It Is The Earth got used up and we found a new solar system and used terraforming technology to create hundreds of new Earths The central planets formed the Alliance and decided that all worlds should unite under their rule There was some disagreement on that point After the Unification War many of the Independents who had fought andost drifted to the edges of the system far from Alliance control Out here people struggled.
And the production value is VERY highThis is the RPG system for people who want to emphasize the RP and not the G Intuitive and character driven there are VERY few charts and tables The interaction of abilities skills and achievement is fast and furious The woundstun system is nothing short of elegant brilliance and the entire concept of plot points is gloriousI ran a pbem of this system for a whole slew of months before real Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India life interupted and I would LOVE to go back to it again some dayThis system has been recreated by Margaret Weis Productions into separate games all using the same system including Battlestar Galactica and how odd is this the Dragonlance Saga The basic rules set is soon to be released as a stand alone book to be adapted to any genre you wish called The Cortex System Roleplaying Game Some assembly reuired your mileage may varyThis early incarnation of the Cortex system is pretty damned useless as and RPG While CortexAction CortexDrama and Marvel Heroic Roleplay may all be good game systems the roots are notI would never encourage anyone to play the game in this book If youove Firefly then by all means buy it But don t play it Hack it fold it drift it Tear out the source material and run it in another system Great source material for doing crime in the verse I m not a huge fan of the system but that might be because I had already been playing in the verse using a fan made source book for the Savage Worlds system Altogether a good read though.
