Music: You’ll be Loved Again by Cowboy Junkies, clipped for opening. Hopefully I will be able to add a link to music.

Scene opened from blackness. Sun comes up in accelerated shot, revealing a Firefly Transport sitting among wrecks. Song begins

How could he take you in his arms
And help you to be free


Screen changes to split screen, Wyatt face on the left, hand-drawn, slowly changes into that of the real face. On the right, Wyatt stands defiant – drawing his gun, then Wyatt holding a bottle in his room, looking at it like it was an enemy, then Willow and Wyatt arguing and then Wyatt and Dash fighting each other on the deck of the cargo bay.

Then leave you forgotten
And is it enough to cry
When you're so taken.


Screen changes to hand-drawn Dash on left fading to the real face. On the left, Dash at controls of the firefly, looking intent, Dash with rifle in hand, jumping off a roof, and then Dash drawing a gun and shooting the bottle in Wyatt’s hand.

Her cold eyes tell you that you're not welcome
She tells lies but you'll take her back again


Face of Willow, hand-drawn fading to the real. On the left, Willow walking through a crowded bar, everyone stopping to look at her, Willow in the infirmary, crash-carting Asher, Willow with a mischievous smile on catwalk above cargobay.

And is it enough to die
When you're so broken


Kora face hand-drawn fades to real. On left, Kora takes out three men with her bare hands and feet, Kora covered in grease, working on the engine, and then Kora in a frilly dress looking ready to murder someone.

You will be loved again
You will be loved again


Trish’s face hand-drawn to real. On the Left, Trish serving dinner to the crew, Asher and Trish holding each other like mother and son, Trish blasting away with her pink shotgun, hood pulled over head.

But will she sing and will she dance
And will she forever


Asher’s face hand-drawn to real. On the left, Asher fires shotgun, discards it and draws both pistols and fires, Asher talking to Willow as she slides pass him, ignoring him, Asher driving mule in a wide turn with three mules chasing.

But will he sing and will he dance
And will he forever


The Firefly soars across the screen in a slow roll. Scene changes to firefly going to hard burn, light glowing around backend of ship.

Someday you will feel a love so deep
And you will find someone not lost in sleep


A long shot of the inside of the ship, camera slowly rolling backwards. A superimposed ghostly image of a horse running down the length of the ship away from camera. Scene fades to back, then the emblem of the Rocinante forms out of the black.

And you will be loved again
You will be loved again


Final shot of crew gathered at the dinner table, laughing, sharing food and enjoying themselves. Camera pans around to capture each member.

You will be loved again

Screen fades to black.

Crew of The Rocinante
Wyatt Sung - Captain of the Ship - Bromern Sal
Samuel “Sam” Dash - Pilot - Eol Felalas
Asher Talhone - Gunslinger (Public Relations) - Blamm
Kora Mei Ling - Mechanic - Lyskhala
Willow Takahara - Medic/Spokesperson - Vanadia

More to come soon. Adventure begins in January.

Subject: Friends and Family plan


I will be giving everyone three friends or family or aquaintances in the Verse. This is to give you someone to turn to for info or help in the future. Now I do take requests so feel free to ask. I will assign them a place in the Verse so you will have to be near them to get help, but you can always send a wave.

Example:
Wyatt knows another ship's Captain by the name of Griffith. He's a man with a good name and he'll back you up even if there's no profit except friendship. He currently owes you money (TBD), but you know he'll be good for it the next time your paths cross. Things have a way of going smoothly for Griffith, and he carries torch for the fine Miss Willow.
Location: Dragonfly Class transport - The Royale. Usually in Outer planets territory

I am close to posting the opening scene of the game. I have all the characters now, so let us move all chit-chat to the Q&A thread from here on in.

Looking forward to the game, I really feel we have a great crew here.

I would like to let Blamm post his own character. But here is a peek:

Name: Asher Talhone
Race: Caucasian
Homeworld: Ezra
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Height: 5 ft 11 in
Weight: 178 lbs
Hair: Chin length, nearly straight, blonde
Eyes: Lively blue
Skin: Tanned
Features: Young, boyish features. Smooth-ish skin, clean shaven. Handsome.


Now eventually I will want to post summaries of all characters on the site becuase you will need to know each other well. The question is how much do you want revealed as we all have secrets.

So far I have complete characters from Bromern, Eol and Blamm. I have a partial from Lyskhala and I need to help Vanadia finish off her character this weekend (if she ever comes home from Philly).

I will want to establish an story of how you all met and maybe a few adventures you have had together.

Now, is there any information that I haven't covered here that you need? The only thing I can think of is perhaps language, slang and swearing in chinese. There are many websites on that though. Here is one:

Subject: The ship's name


I have a graphic of teh ship's emblem I need to post. But I wanted to say a bit about the name of your ship.

It has been established that Wyatt won Rocinante in a card game. The following is a narrative of the former owner, explaining the name of the ship.


Why Rocinante?

Let me tell you about this man back on Earth that was. Went by the name of Don Quixote and he wasn’t a lord or mayor or a man of standing; he was just folk like you and me. Lived in a place called Las Mancha, which I think was in Texas back on Earth. Anyways, the man had a love of reading though, and took to books like a fish to water. So much so that them folks in his town started to think he had a leaky brainpan due to all that reading. You know how them backwater folks can get them strange notions in their heads.

Anyways, this Quixote fella, he took disagreement with the local uppity-ups. Real giants of industry that held the area in a tight grip on the account that they owned all the wind-mill power generators. Since they had the power and the money, they basically took control of the area and made their ways known to the folks. Not completely different from some places in the Verse now, come to think of it. But Don wouldn’t stand for it. He took up arms against that sea of troubles, even though he was just one man.

Now Don had a horse - wasn’t a pretty horse or a fast horse or even a young spirited one. It was an old nag workhorse, much like any of us have rode or used on the farms. But Don didn’t see the horse as old and useless; he saw the horse as a faithful steed upon which to ride out and undo the wrongs of the world. So he called her Rocinante, which was Spaniard for “not a work horse”.

Now I’d like to tell you that Mr. Quixote went out and did great things and became a big damn hero. But, sure as shooting, one man against giants doesn’t have much of a chance. However, no matter how often he went out and got beaten, bruised and generally messed up – Rocinante always got him home again.The folks tried to get Don to stop, being scared of them lords and their power, but he kept right on trying, and Rocinante keep bringing him back for mending.

Soon enough though, an old man can’t take the beatings anymore and he died a broken man. But once he was gone, the folks suddenly realized they had lost something. They felt it in their hearts and it made them mourn something awful. Then they rose up against those giants of industry and cast off their shackles. Wasn’t for Quixote though, they wouldn’t have say boo. Isn’t that the way though? Folks don’t know what they got until its plum gone.

So I named her Rocinante, cause she was once a work horse, but she ain’t to me. She’s much more than that, and if I love her and take care of her; she’ll always bring me home. No matter if I succeed in my ventures or I am running bruised and bleeding – she’ll get me home again. She’ll do the same for you too.

Topic: most unusual/thrilling end to a campaign...
Subject: Tossing the sword


One campaign I played had the party fightng an evil dude who had "protected" himself for any damage. His weakness was his own sword, which could damage and kill him.

So the party found this out, engaged him in combat. They managed after some time and injury to get the sword off him. But even without the swrod, he had the ability to do massive damage.

So the final battle consist of one of them using the sword while the others distracted him with "useless" missiles. Every time one got wounded, then another would run up, grab the sword and continue.

Finally, the sword is fumbled and dropped. The evil dude goes for it ... and fumbles. (kicks sword across room)

So the Cavalier goes for it ... and fumbles. (kicks sword across room)

The Fighter Mage goes for it ... and fumbles. (kicks sword across room)

The NPC Warrior goes for it ... and fumbles. (kicks sword across room)

The Evil Dude tries again to get it ... and fumbles. (kicks sword across room)

Finally the thief gets the sword and delivers the final blow. But I have never had that many consecutive fumbles in a battle before. One slippery sword.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: my bad


You are correct. I was working off a summary sheet I pulled from the net and didn't double check the source. So if you are using plot point before the action, or to reduce damage.

1pp - d2
2pp - d4
3pp - d6
4pp - d8
5pp - d10
6pp - d12
7pp - d12 + d2
etc etc

After the fact PP use was also incorrect. It is 1 pp for one point changed (not half as I posted).

Sorry for the bad data, and thank you Blamm for pointing that out. It is a new rule system for me too, so please continue to keep me honest.

Topic: Firefly/Serenity RPG - Looking for Browncoats
Subject: confession time


I really dislike smoking. I won;t get up on a soapbox here and rant but let it stand that I really dislike the habit. I have vetoed two players so far that have asked for the habit on the same reasoning - you can't smoke in a space ship.

Perhaps I am being heavy handed on this. I really don't like to tell you what you can or can not play. After all, my wife picked Amorous as a complication ....

Anyway, I said my peace. I'd prefer a smoke free game, but if I'm wearing the tyrant tight pants, I will abide the words of the crew.

Smoking about the confines of a spaceship might not be a great idea. Hard to step outside for a puff.

Subject: addendum


Anyone playing a character that is 23 year olds or less did not fight in the war, although they may have been effected by it. There were places in the Verse where the war was only on the vid screen, or only a distant rumour among those playing rutabaga.

Topic: Firefly/Serenity RPG - Looking for Browncoats
Subject: Link


The history of Firefly is an excellent piece on the timeline of Firefly.

We are playing in Pre-Miranda so around early 2517 (episode Shindig). At that time, the war has been over for 5 years. It started in 2506 and ended in the battle od Serenity valley in 2511.

Anyone else notice that Robert and I have a habit of Posting at the same time.

Yes, that is what people are doing. Which I love because you will all have a part of the ship therefore making it your own.

However, remember you do need to have money for ammo, food, drinks, bribes, more ammo, equipment, cooking supplies, more ammo, clothing.

Topic: Firefly/Serenity RPG - Looking for Browncoats
Subject: Money


Okay. Starting cash for players is 1,500 credits (Unless you have Moneyed Individual, in which case it is 2,250. Or Dead broke in which you start with 750c). If you goto the link on the second page of this thread, or here for you again:

Serenity RPG Resources is an excellent page with oodles of resources for the player and GMs. Highly recommended.

You will find a list of weapons and gear there that covers the basics. Anything yo ucan't find that you need, ask me but the simple way to figure it out is that 1 credit equals about $25 dollars. So if you want something not on the list, find it on Earth, then convert. The exceptions would be foodstuff, as anything beyond protein packs (in all colours of the rainbow) are very rare and expensive.

That you have sent me so far has been great Lyskhala, epecially since you are the only one without a rule book. Please feel free to ask any of us if you need help. I know you have starting money and I can give you some prices, but I don't have the books in front of me. Later tonight I hope.

I do love how the crew is shaping up like an extended family. I look forward to the game starting.

BTW - I will be doing some silver screens to start of the game in the near future. Once I have done them, you may post, but I won't be moving things along until after new years.
