Cortex System Request: Fantasy Material

If anyone out there has any notes or houserules on using the Cortex RPG system with a fantasy setting, if you wouldn't mind sharing those with me, I'd be much appreciative. You can send them to me at mail.rpgblog(at)

MWP did a Castlemourn Quick Start using the Cortex rules, but that's been about it on the fantasy front, I'm afraid. Which is a pity, because I definitely like the system, and dug their great customer response earlier in the year. I'm still working on some just-for-fun bits for it, and would hate to have to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to.

Maragret Weis Productions, if you're listening, feel free to offer some 3rd-party a chance to create a rockin' fantasy world for your system. It deserves one.

I'd also like to see what's out there for Cortex fantasy. We ran a quick playtest of Cortex over the last couple of weeks. Aside from a few things, it hit all the right notes for us. However, I decided against using it for our next fantasy campaign because it would have required too many house rules, too fast.

You arent alone in wanting fantasy magic for Cortex.

Dont know if this will help but here are a few of the threads about magic from the Cortex message boards.
