About Josh Roby

Greetings, fellow Cortex Partisans and all you Cortex-Curious who've wandered by "just to dip your toe into the water."  Welcome to my giant mess of making Cortex stuff!

What is Cortex you ask, just slightly disingenuously in order to hear my answer and thus get a better understanding of what we do here?  Cortex is a roleplaying game system primarily developed by Cam Banks which is "multi-genre, modular, and session-centered," which is fancy marketing talk for "the RPG that can do anything you want hoo boy is it great."  Cortex is also my very favorite game system (can you tell?).

Cortex does action sequences, it does dramatic character arcs, it does high stakes awesomeness, it does low-stakes heartwarming moments and humor, it does collaborative worldbuilding, it does simple and extensible game mechanics, and what is more it does all of these things optionally, so you can mix and match to get exactly the right mood for whatever you want to play today.

You can find out more about Cortex specifically at Cortex's Official Site.

This patreon will afford you early access and in progress perspectives as I make content for Cortex Prime.  This is where I will noodle with mechanics, release sneak peeks, share developing worldbuilding, and field playtests.  I'll be sharing art, both my own subprofessional stuff and the amazing art that I commission for projects.  I'll talk about the decisions that go into making different games and game content, and all in all give you a tour of the sausage-making factory.

I am very committed to making roleplaying games accessible, so all of my content is posted here publicly.  Some select posts may give patrons early access, but everything is eventually a public post.  If you'd like to see the kinds of things you'll find here, all you need to do is check out the posts, which should be below this intro post.
