CORE MICRO is a hybrid roleplaying game engine: it uses traditional RPG concepts & narrativist techniques for character-driven emergent story. The design focuses on simplicity, speed, and improvization. Everything is on the same scale. All actions use a single Yes/No/And/But mechanic. Results are narratively interpreted. And it was built to be hacked. Explore the Worlds of CORE Micro – or build your own!
