Arise from your grave, thread, to haunt this board once more!

For those of you that have a copy of the rules, what are your feelings on the rules system? My daughter is almost 12, loves The Dragon Prince, and has played some 1E Pathfinder with friends and family. Is this something that a 12 year old could learn to play without too much difficulty?

The short version is: Yes, she can.

The long version (in the PDF of CortexPrime rules, this is just a one-page intro):

Jane is a Seasoned Journalist (3d6) with 1 PP (Plot Point).
If you do something that aligns with your description, roll all applicable dice (3d6), pick two highest numbers and add them to get your task total.
If you do something that does NOT align, roll fewer dice (2d6), pick two highest numbers and add them to get your task total.
To find the difficulty number to beat, roll dice and add them up: 1d6 (for an easy task), 2d6 (for challenging difficulty) and 3d6 (hard).
If your total is HIGHER, you win.

Here're a bit more elaborate and detailed explanations:

Very excited to see this out in the wild, not so much because I'm a fan of the source material (I have never watched it) but to see the Cortex Prime rules wrangled into a single and complete game. We've recently been playing a campaign of our own devising in Cortex (including some additional mods by me) and I find myself being more and more intrigued by it. There's a lot of nifty things it does to support both the tone of the campaign and its FATE-like style of play. We're already using some of the mods/adjustments from Xadia, and it's great that this will get the system out there for more people to try.

My only problem is that the show did a fantastic job of selling me the fact that black magic is perfectly moral and the elves need to be destroyed to save humanity.


This is apparently not what the show is about.


Received my preordered hard copy as well. Going to rewatch the series as I read the rules. Hoping to talk with two players this weekend to make characters and run a quick scenario.
