It costs about a grand to publish each issue of Xine. We're combining lots of revenue streams, but once they all add up to $1000, we start work on the next issue.
Xine is the best (and only) zine providing cool new worlds, mods, and advice for the Cortex Prime Roleplaying Game. We're a plucky little artist collective who love Cortex and want to see this game soar to the heights we know it can reach. Our goal for Xine is to make a modest but continuing contribution to the Cortex community by releasing cool new stuff into the Cortex sharing community. It takes a chunk of change to put out Xine: about $1000 per issue. Why so high? Because we pay a fair wage for all of our material and all of the services that make it available to the community. If we can't do this ethically, why do it at all? That price tag is where you and this ko-fi come in—we need supporters, like-minded Cortex fans who'd like to see more Cortex stuff out in the world.
