CORE - the Creative Options Roleplaying Engine

Creative Options Roleplaying Engine

CORE is a hybrid RPG, blending traditional concepts with narrativist techniques for character-driven emergent story. It's also the basis of our best-selling game DayTrippers and other games by various developers. CORE's design focus is on simplicity, speed, and improvisation. Everything is on the same scale. All actions use a single Yes/No/And/But mechanic. Results are narratively interpreted. And it's built to be hacked.
