As a Current Player, I Endorse John Williams, should he complete the character sheet, for the game simply because I see SOOOO much potential fun having him aboard.

I have fond memories of Gil in your old Serenity game, Drach. Unfortunatly, with work and struggling to even post in my 4 remaining games, I'll have to pass on making a character this time.

Good luck everyone and don't let the Verse bite you in the arse.

Silk! Hi.
Lemme know when you have free time. I have two Firefly games going and it's likely that someone will have dropped out of one of them in the near future.

Game NameNo Power in the Verse...
Game SystemOther Roleplaying Games


ThemeSerenity Verse
FlavourSci-Fi Western, in the tradition of Firefly


Plot SummaryA newly obtained Firefly Vessel, by a newly put together crew has just completed on their first job. It went well enough, but all but 2 of the crew now want out after the payout. You are in need of a job or a place to be other than where you are at. Ever sail in a Firefly?

Characters are joining a crew of folk who want to get to work on their own out in the black. All characters will want to be on the crew.
Timeframe will be just after events of Firefly T.V. Series Final Episode and prior to Events of the Motion Picture “Serenity.”


The HookTBD
You need a job. There's a docked ship that needs some crew. What are you waiting for?


Game Mechanics
What 'type' of game will it be?
Game will be typical of the Firefly/Serenity theme. Players’ characters will be part of crew – a team. Each should have motivations and or reasons to have joined a crew, and to stay part of one. Obviously, these motivations and reasons do not have to be known by other characters.

How many Players are you looking for?
2-4
[TABLE]CURRENT CREW
Player Character Crew Position
Ghost6442 Hero Tyson Mechanic
The Rat Queen Kierra Sinclair Programmer/Hacker/Captain

What is the characters' starting level?
Greenhorn

How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?
This is determined by the starting level of the game, which is Greenhorn. Point buy system - 42 points for Attributes, 62 points for Skills.

Are there any particular character “things that you want... or do not want?
Some Traits, Complications may be limited to minor. “Reader Trait is off limits. Mute complication cannot be chosen.

What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game?
Uh-duh. Human only please. No aliens in the ‘Verse, people are weird enough as it is.

Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game ?
All players will do their own die rolling. GM will roll for all NPCs and all nasty ‘Verse surprises.

Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that Players should know about?
Yes. Here's the link to them.

Is a character background required? Are you looking for anything in particular?
Yes. Characters Backgrounds are up to players, though should be looking to be part of a ship's crew. The “Hows” and “Whys” of this is strictly up to the player.
GM reserves right to “suggest” changes be made before game start for better “flow” of game. No Lone Wolf type characters please.

Are your Players restricted to particular rule books and supplements?
Yes. These are the books I have, and all are allowed.
-Serenity RPG Core Rules Book
-Big Damn Heroes Handbook
-Six-Shooters & Spaceships
-Cortex Shipyards, Volume 1 & 2
Character Submission:
Need name, Age, Sex, background, and general idea of skill set (like complications, traits, etc.) you want your character to have. This can all be blended together in a paragraph or two as I'm not picky. Character generation will take place after your player has been accepted (though it you wish to get a head start, feel free to do so, but this will not sway acceptance into game).

Lastly: No dice rolling in the Advertisement Thread. Shouldn’t be a problem since Cortex rules are based on “Point Buy” system.

I did have a rough idea, if I don't know the system or have the first idea how to make a character in it.

Reach Out and Touch Someone
left-aligned image
NAME: "Barrett"
Age: 34
SKILLSET: Muscle/Sharpshooter
ASSETS: Barrett is a former member of a high-end Mercenary company, and as such has been trained in the use of a variety of combat utilities and weapons. His particularly speciality is long-range rifles and functions best as a Sharpshooter-Sniper-Scout.
COMPLICATIONS: It's now open knowledge that Barrett's former employers took jobs from both sides of the Unification War, so he doesn't really have a good rep with either side. Barrett is also trying to keep secret the real reason he's out in former Independent systems looking for work.

DESCRIPTION: Even if you somehow missed the Unification War entirely you could tell he was a combat veterin. He has that carriage of a career military man. It's a bit odd that he doesn't have much that actually says which side he fought on but that isn't something that's supposed to be caught right away. When "on the clock" prefers to wear full body armor with a face concealing helmet. When it's not on he does have a couple rather noticable scars down the right side of his face, including one that makes one wonder how he didn't lose that eye.

BACKGROUND: Barrett is the only name you're going to get if he can help it. When the Unification War broke out he signed on for a tour with the Alliance, but his skills were noticed by some recruiters for a private outfit so for most of the war he was a Mercenary with Ghost Company. Specialized as a Sharpshooter, he just went with the company and the company just fought for whoever's creds cleared. Which did usually mean Alliance but hey, at least he had less paperwork.

It was only just as the war was ending did he start to wonder if he was really doing the right thing. When the war ended, he decided to just retire instead. He tried to do the whole settle-down and have a family thing. Mixed Results. The wife didn't stick around, but he did get custody of their now 3 year old daughter Penny. It wasn't the most honest life, but he could make it work. Blood money doesn't seem quite so bad when you're trying to use it for something positive at least.

Penny's been missing for over a month now. So far all Barrett knows for sure that the ex-wife isn't involved, and that if the Alliance is in on it he hasn't found anyone who actually knows that. Which doesn't mean much, admittedly. Maybe he can pick up the trail somewhere in the old Independent systems. Or maybe if he moves around he can kick up something to pick up the trail. Either way, he has to play his cards right so that whoever's responsible doesn't know what he's doing.

What he does know for sure - if he finds Penny alive they're going to need a new place to be safe. And if Penny is dead, a lot of 笨天生的一堆肉 are getting new holes in their brainpans.

Nice GleefulNihilism!
Check our PMs for more information.

As we lost our potential pilot it seems like, the crew is still only up to 3.
Got a Captain who is also a Hacker/computer type, a Mechanic and now some muscle/gunhand.
Need that pilot and maybe one other.
