5 years...

It was a 5 year war. And it ended roughly 6-7 years ago, I believe. (yes, DM?)

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.

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.

smoking

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

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.

While perhaps...

a bit heavy handed, thank you for being honest about what the real issue is. I am okay about this game being smoke free.

No problems here.

I certainly don't take any offense to a "smoke free" game (and, unfortunately, I smoke, myself - baaaaaad habit, kiddies... mondo hard to quit). Smoking on a space ship is a bad idea (extra work for the atmo scrubbers, y'know)...

Jayne did stroll around with a cigar in 'is chompers from time to time, though... Never did see it lit, I don't reckon...

'Sides which

Wyatt'd hose ya down if ya light up on board Rocinante. Ship is expensive enough t' maintain without havin' t' replace filters twice as often.

Thanks for the descriptifyin' Blammm... I'll add the character t' the drawin' and get workin' on color. Still haven't heard back from the publisher so I've got me some free time!

Compromise?

I have a feeling that Jayne may have chomped on a cigar stub while on board, but didn't light it except when off ship. You gotta figure a plant material that is not a food stuff would be mighty expensive to just burn away and inhale

Willow used to smoke, but only after sex, and not at all after she found out how wonderful a good massage oil can be for ...well, maybe we'll leave that for another little chat sometime, shall we?

Sorry folks, old joke...couldn't resist.

LOL

Can't wait to hear that one. Kora is learning new tricks from Willow and the game hasn't even started yet

Yep, should be an interesting mix.
