I wouldn't hold your breath. They recently removed all mention of the Kickstarter they were planning for "Spring" from their website, as well as all Firefly material. I am guessing. Photos from the last gaming convention showed no game books at all at their booth, just fiction books. All that's left of Cortex on their site is this: https://margaretweis.com/collections/cortex

Even people who were working on Cortex Plus games have got no response from them at all on anything. I absolutely loved the system but MWP has not only dropped the ball on Cortex Plus, the took the ball and launched it with a cannon.

The Cortex license has just been acquired by Cam Banks from Margaret Weis.

Announcement here:

Minutus cantorum, minutus balorum, minutus carborata descendum pantorum.

Which, of course, begs the question whether the Wolflair would find it worthwhile to assign someone to do the necessary workup to get HL able to support Cortex+ (Classic and it are significantly different, and Cortex+ is also far more individualized in how it handles certain things).

One can only hope. I know that I would gladly pay for it and every expansion they come up with.

I would even pay for original Cortex rules. I have all of the original Serenity RPG books, and would love to make use of Hero Lab for the character and ship generation. Hero Lab has proven to be a tried and true time saver to me as a DM or gamer, and this would truly be a personal high point for me.

I have all the original Serenity and the Firefly RPG books I would love to have a character manager/build for this system. I am wondering if it has all been dropped now since MW announced it: CAM BANKS ACQUIRES CORTEX™ LICENSE, on nov 1st

I asked Cam Banks on RPGnet, and he said that as a licensee he didn't have the authority to authorize anyone to do a character generator for Cortex.

I'm afraid it's going to stay dead.
