I like playbooks in my RPGs. I like how they guide you toward creating setting-appropriate characters, and I like how they get you into the game quickly and easily. So when I considered using Cortex Prime to play Star Wars, my thoughts drifted toward playbooks. The West End Games Star Wars RPG had character templates, which were essentially playbooks, and if it's good enough for WEG Star Wars, it's good enough for me. I drafted a few samples in Scribus, and you can download them by clicking here: StarWarsCortexSheets.pdf.

I haven't tried these in play yet, so I don't know if the traits, dice allocation, or SFX will work out. I have an idea for a few Star Wars sessions, though, so I'm hoping to give them a test run.
