I’ve been thinking a lot about the Cortex Prime system lately. The Tales of Xadia RPG is coming out in just a few days at the time of writing. But more importantly, I’m working on a few different Cortex designs of my own. One that I started building recently is a game inspired by Mage: the Ascension that I’m currently calling Will Be Done.
The indie tabletop RPG community has embraced the digital sales platform itch.io in a big way. I’ve had a storefront there for years, but I didn’t put much effort into it until 2021. My experience is definitely mixed, but I intend to go forward with the platform despite some serious hurdles.
What am I currently running and/or playing as of May 2021? Like everyone else, my gaming has shifted entirely online over the last year. For a time, I was averaging playing in or running five sessions every two weeks. I’ve pared back on that a bit recently. But I thought I’d talk a little about the games I’m involved with at the moment and what I’m feeling about each of them.
