"Never give up, never surrender." Always makes me think of the MC Chris song Never give up. Which was probably taken from Galaxy Quest lol.

This song doesn't get stuck in my head, it comes and goes joyously.

BTW... I have a Firefly RPG module for the first Firefly/Serenity RPG that has a trip to Jaynestown in it.

Yeah, I just randomly start singing either it or the ballad of serenity from time to time.

Hmm. I wonder how Jaynestown has fared over the years. Maybe we'll find out.

I often respond to my children when they want something, "Yes, and I want to be the King of all Londinium and wear a shiny hat."

One of my sons has started responding with a smirk, and a "darn it" hand shake motion a she says, "And nuthin from nuthin is nuthin. Carry the nuthin."
Love that kid.

I mean, what is the acceptable age to expose them to Firefly? Is the answer 8? Because if it is 8 I have something I need to go take care of.

8 seems reasonable. Just skip heart of gold and maybe the train job.

I'd probably skip War Stories as well. And I'm barely even old enough to watch the movie. That thing is dark.

Name Sebastian Roarke. He only really goes by Roarke.

Age 40

Home Planet He was actually born on a ship, "the Sima Yi".

Physical description Roarke is a tall guy, with flame red hair, and green eyes. He's a handsome guy, whom still attracts attention despite his age. There's something of the vulpine to his face.

Role Face

High conceptGood is not soft.

Trouble Cherchez la femme/look for the woman.

Background Aspect Charming but dangerous former operative.

Background
Roarke grew up on a ship, the Sima YI, the son of a trader and a former school teacher, the latter of whom instilled idealism into him. However he got his adept social skills from his trader father. They never did stay anywhere for long, the nomadic lifestyle seeming to suit the small family, Whilst not a rich life, it was a fairly happy one. Well until the war broke out. Having opposing viewpoints, Roarke parted ways with his father, keen to join the Independents.
He caught the eye of Captain Oksana Volodin. She was working intelligence for the Independents. Being very beautiful and charismatic, Roarke fell under her spell instantly. Joining her crew, his job was to gather information for operations. Since he was very good at manipulating people, he was very good at getting information. Later on however, he became suspicious. The targets they went after didn't seem to be all alliance. For a time Oksana deflected his suspicions by seducing him.
Roarke was many things. Stupid was not one of them. When he realized their next target was not an alliance base as Oksana claimed, but an independent stronghold, that's when he acted. He tricked her into making the mistake that got her caught and ultimately executed. After the battle of Serenity, he drifts from job to job. Roarke has a pattern, after Oksana Volodin, of picking the girls that are trouble for him.

Alright everyone, theres 2 more days to finish up applications. Lets set the deadline for this Saturday, the 19th, 12pm mountain time (GMT-7).

Once the crew is assembled, there will be plenty of time for you to work with each other to complete your phase 2 and 3 backgrounds, and fill out your character sheets.

For the curious, I've been working on some changes to the standard skills. You can see those here: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18211

I had hoped to, but my boss unexpectedly took a working vacation and doesn't get back till tomorrow. So I haven't had a day off, and have been working longer shifts to cover for him for the past week. As it is, I'm behind on doing prep for the game itself.

I did post some feedback, mostly on what each application was missing (if anything) to be considered complete, here:
https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthre...10#post8547710

Depending on how tired I am when I get off work tonight, I'll try to give what feedback I can.

If a majority of you want, we can extend the deadline till the 26th, and I'll be able to give feedback before the deadline. Let me know.
