Firefly/Serenity RPG - Looking for Browncoats

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...

Are you a fan of Jose Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity series? Ever felt like you wanted to role play in the verse? Well here is the opportunity to do so. I have recently acquired the Serenity RPG system. It is a very simple rule system that I am adapting for online gaming. What I would be looking for are players to be the crew of a ship, most likely a firefly class. Ideally I would like a crew of six with someone being Captain. The ship will need a mechanic, a pilot, someone with doctoring skills, and a couple of people to handle PR (knowing guns, fights etc).

Before I go into the mechanics of the game, I want to see who is interested and in what type of characters. Look to the crew of Serenity and see what appeals to you, add your own twists and voila. Or if you have something completely different in mind – let me know.

As I said, game rules are simple and background. This is a game for the creative. Basically, you have stats in the form of die (d2, d4, d6, d8, d12). You then have skills. If you attempt anything it is ability + skill rolled against a difficulty. Your character will have assets (good in a fight, good pilot etc) and complications (quick tempered, plain crazy etc). This is a game where things going wrong will be part of the regular norm.

So sound off if you wish to sail the ‘Verse, looking for work or just staying ahead of the alliance. The actual game will probably not start until the new year.

Sci-fi at its best!

I "discovered" Firefly merely a couple of months ago, but I already consider it one of the best works of sci-fi ever created! I bought the series on DVD three weeks ago and have decided to watch only one episode every weekend (so as to not "ruin" anything by watching all of it too quickly), but when you decide to start this game up, I'll definitely be into the Firefly universe, so to speak.

I'm very interested in joining this game, Al. Before I sign on to anything, though, I'd like to know: Roughly how long do you think the campaign will take?

I know it's tricky to specify in detail, but are we talking weeks, months or years here?

As for specifics, I'd be interested in playing the group's captain, although I'm certainly not averse to playing any other kind of character on the ship.

Posting rate

One more thing: What will be the estimated posting rate?

I love to play in high-speed games (with one post per day or more) but slower games tend to bore me, really. Anything decided on this point yet, Al?

hard to say

I haven't got enough responses to answer your questions. One post a day is still too much of a goal I think for most people. I tend to stick to one a week, but I am averaging better than that (2-3 per week) in CWWLLO right now.

I would think if people were into it and we kept up the pace, the first campaign would takes a number of months (at least 6).

Hmm...

Hmm... Like I said, I don't really like slow-moving, long-lasting campaigns that much. No offense to you, of course—I bet yours will be great when and if you've gathered some players—but I think I'll remain a lurker unless you manage to put together a group of "click-the-Reload-button-twice-a-second" type of guys... much like myself.

I wish you the best of luck with your campaign, and one more thing, Al: Aim to misbehave!

mmm hmm!

Oh my stars and garters! Firefly! *beams*

I love the verse, love the show, and have some ideas of things I'd love to try. So many options my brain is buzzing.

So offhand, some attractive options include a bouncer/security person, a fence with more connections in space than they care to admit to who also handles the cooking (I like this one yarr), or a quirky technician type.

I don't have the RPG book. *gasp* But I'm most certainly willing to learn as we go. Just let me know! Many thanks!

Well

I don't expect people to have the rules. It is a easy system to learn, especially for on line where I will doing doing all the rolling anyway.

However, the interest is slow so far. We shall see if we can get a crew.

I shouldn't...

I'm in. I was at the convention where they released the book for the first time. It went like wildfire, but I did get a chance to peak at it. Let me know where you need me and I'll come up with something. I may even get the book just because I'm a fan of the series and "I aim t' misbehave."

OK...

Got the book. Haven't read it, though the pictures are pretty. Just looking for some feedback and confirmation that we're actually doing this thing.

Me too

I'm interested... I've actually only watched Serenity The Movie. That was alright. I heard the series was better.

So what I'm saying is that I don't know much about the 'verse, but am more than willing to read up on it.

I would love to try the captain spot... but I'm new and maybe a more "versed" player would be better. I'll leave that to the DM.

A couple questions:

1) Intended start date?
2) Links to site about the Serenity universe and the Firefly specs?

Thanks.

coming soon

I fully intend to run this if I can get a crew. I will go with a crew as small as 4 if I have to and NPCs. So far I have a confirmed interested in three (yanamari, Bromern and Blamm).

Start is in January

Links are coming

Captain, if it is an issue then you don't have to have a Captain. You could all own an equal part of the ship and never seem to have enough credits to buy the others out.

Sounds like fun. I'd like to play. Not into rules based as yet, but willing to learn

rules rules rules

In a Verse where "I'aim to misbehave" is the golden rule, rules are not an issue.

The mechanics of the game will be in the background. I am assume everyone playing doesn't know the rule system. I will keep it as free and open as possible.

It is a western in space. You will draw your guns. If someone tries to kill you, you will kill em right back. Rogues, scoundrels, con men and snake oil salesmen galore.

Love Space and Westerns


I use to watch every western there was with my dad.
The Big Valley, Bonanza, The Rifleman, The Virginian,
Gunsmoke and any Charles Bronson movie I could find

Good times!
