Since three are expressing interest in the Captain slot (2 posting an advert here, and 1 via PM I was messaging with yesterday), I've opened up a 7th slot. I've carried this many before in a Serenity Game, and it's not a problem if everyone posts consistently. If 7 do make it to the game, we'll start to follow a "posting window", which means a 5-7 day period for all to post within or be 'ghosted'. We'll discuss it more in the Game thread.

@Players submitting for Captain role - "Bear" in mind that the Captain role here isn't quite like that of Mal in Firefly. Mal owned the ship outright, but in this scenario, the Captain will own an Maybe a slight bit more to show it's the Captain, but this remains to be seen.equal percentage of the ship with the crew. So there'll be no shouting about what does and doesn't happens on my gorram ship by the Captain.

@DraconigenaArma - Nice concept and character. Reminds me a bit of Monte, Mal's Captain friend from Firefly who was also married to Saf/Yo/Brig.

@Andor - As I finished reading through it I felt that something was missing, and then it hit me. What did he do during the war?
Also, anyone still around who even has a slight bit of knowledge of his relationship with 'The Fox' would generate a contact, or an enemy. How does he handle this?
I like the Bourbon connection, and this would be a good lead into what happened in the war. Both sides would want alcohol, and both might even look the other way if smuggling was going on alongside some good Bourbon.

FEI ZHOU

left-aligned image

CREW POSITION: Acquisitions Specialist
HOME PLANET: Home is where the heart is.

APPEARANCE
GENDER: Female
AGE: 27
HEIGHT: 5'8" (1.72m)
WEIGHT: 126 lbs (57.15kg)

DESCRIPTION
Fei is a willowy asian woman, with slender limbs that might seem just a touch too long for her body. Her hair is a frizzy cloud of inky black, trimmed to fall just past her shoulders. She often ties it back with a long, turquoise ribbon which was a gift from her mother. Her eyes are a brown so dark they nearly match the color of her hair, and her sharp gaze tends to roam, drifting from one thing to another and never settling for long, both curious about- and wary of- the world around her.

Fei’s closet is a study of contrasts. On board the ship, Fei favors easy, casual clothes in bright colors, especially blue and green, and she wears sandles or soft-soled slippers. She prefers clothing that hugs her slender form, and only rarely wears a dress or a skirt. When out and about Fei wears simple, practical clothes in neutral colors, typically grey or brown, with a hood or some sort of head covering and sturdy footware. She avoids branded clothes, bright colors, or anything that would make her stand out in a crowd. She might go so far as to remove the brands or ornamental features from a piece that she particularly likes, if it doesn’t meet her criteria for acceptable clothing.

PERSONALITY
Fei is a calm and collected woman facing the world with laughter and a smirk. She’s open and friendly, and she moves and acts with a confident ease. She’s talkative, apt to tease and joke with the people around her, at least the ones she cares about. She’s naturally inquisitive and prone to searching out things people would prefer she not find. Hiding things from her only makes her more keen to find out what kind of secrets someone is keeping. Buried where most people won’t see it is a compassionate heart. She isn’t given to emotional outbursts. Even when she gets angry she doesn’t often yell. Her rage is cold and spiteful, and she’s not the type to forgive and forget. When someone hurts her, she’ll try to return the injury in kind, even if it takes months or years before she finds a vulnerability she can exploit. She’d go to great lengths to help someone she considers a friend, though that isn’t a status lightly earned.

Fei loves to travel more than anything else in the ‘Verse. When she’s working she turns deadly serious, and she expects the rest of the crew to take their jobs seriously as well. She’s practical, and would rather succeed than look stylish while failing. She’s spent plenty of time in space, and she respects the danger it presents. The ship she’s traveling in keeps her alive, and she gives it her respect – and love – in return. In her eyes, purposefully damaging a ship she’s on is tantamount to declaring war. Fei prefers to work in a clean and neatly organized environment.



ASSETS & COMPLICATIONS
Friends in Low Places [Minor Asset]: Fei’s family had plenty of less than savory connections, connections that Fei can draw on when she needs them.
Highly Educated [Minor Asset]: Fei paid attention in school.
Nose for Trouble [Minor Asset]: Fei can sense when trouble nears. This doesn’t usually keep her out of trouble, but at least she knows when it’s coming.
Steady Calm [Minor Asset]: In the heat of the moment, sometimes a calm heart is more useful than a gun.
Things Go Smooth [Major Asset]: Sometimes the winds of fortune blow in your favor...

Deadly Enemy [Minor Complication]: Her Dad would love to see her again.
Nosy [Minor Complication]: Fei can’t help but stick her nose in to other people’s business, especially when it might uncover such interesting secrets.
Neat Freak [Minor Complication]: Is it really asking too much for people to sweep up the living areas, wash the dishes, and use a coaster? ...and maybe wax the hover transport. And maybe scrub the outside of the ship and clean the cockpit window. The right way, where it doesn’t leave streaks. And...
Superstitious [Minor Complication]: It’s not superstition if it seems like the 'Verse is sometimes actually out to get you. Even if there’s no such thing as fate, it doesn’t hurt to throw some salt over your shoulder at a new port, keep an eye out for ladders and cats, hang a lucky horseshoe near the bridge, or to pay attention to the way your tea leaves settle in their cup.
Things Don’t Go Smooth [Major Complication]: ...and sometimes the winds of fortune blow against you.

I posted as Captain since that was the only slot available. He's a reluctant leader, or at least an amicable one, having positions like that thrust upon him and succeeding in an oblique way. He's just as capable as the Muscle/Tracker role, though I wasn't trying to make a "nice Jayne." I wasn't really trying to emulate anyone, though the mustache is definitely an homage to Monte; I'm glad someone noticed.

My license plate bracket/holder says "You Can't Take The Sky From Me" at the top and "Firefly" at the bottom, so if I hadn't noticed I should remove it.

Game Advertisement is Now Closed - No Longer Taking Applicants

I will be sending PMs and/or posting here the final results no later tomorrow (maybe this evening), but at this point, everyone is accepted pending GM decision and some questions to some of you players.

Definitely earned your license plate holder today. I'll hold off on finishing my sheet until you're certain which way you want me to go. I'll have (only minor) differences in skill selection if I'm dedicated support or the actual Captain. The traits will likely be the same either way, so it won't take too long to finish it once you're decided.

Ok, just so you all know, this is what we are looking for in a mechanic...

Female to balance out the Male to female ratio of the crew.
Maybe a red or a blonde? or maybe a nice blasť?
Definitely incurably cheerful with a taste for dramatics and explosions.
Not a cat person, please.
Drinks like a sponge, but a non-smoker.
Is able to solve problems, not problems like "What is beauty?" Because that would fall within the purview of the conundrums of philosophy. Solve practical problems, for instance: how to stop some mean mother Hubbard from tearing us a structurally superfluous behind?

No really, I'm just goofing, make whatever you want. :P

"Luh-suh"?!
The Last Laugh ain't "Luh-suh.
Take your ship.
Six gerstlers crammed under every cooling drive so that you strain your primary atery function and you end up having to recycle secondary exhaust through a bypass system just so's you don't end up pumpin' it through the main atmofeed and asphyxiating the entire crew. Now that's junk."


If you understand all that, then the crew of 'The Last Laugh' needs you and your mechanic'n skills. Come join the crew.

I was informed a mechanic is needed. I would be happy to make a mechanic character and join the fun Drach. I just need some time and maybe some help to work out the character sheet. Let me know if the spot is still open.

Physical
Name Valerie 'Val' Weston
Gender Female
Age 20
Physical Description Val is a very attractive young woman, when she is not covered in grease or grime from working on ships. These times are often few and far between though.
 



Concept and Character
Defining Role/Archetype/Concept Mechanic
Motivation: Seeing more of the universe and starting a new life.
Goals: Learn everything she can and possibly one day have her own fleet of ships.
Fears Being stuck in one place unable to ply her trade.
Virtues Honest, and hard working
Vices: A bit naive due to her age, possessive/protective of her work.


Background Val as she prefers to be called, has been tinkering with ships and anythign else mechanical since she was old enough to stand. Her parents only had one child, and her father was determined she be able to take care of herself. As such he taught her the basics of self defense, and how to fix engines. The latter she took an immediate and enduring interest in. As she grew older her appetite for mechanical work only grew.

When she was a teen she could take a part and engine and put it back together without any help whatsoever. Val's parents were killed in a crossfire when she was 16, and it shook her to the core. Blaming the authorities for her parents death. Without her parents Val had to find work and ended up working in a shop, she thought was legit. That was until it was raided and her employers arrested as well as her. After her arrest she cooperated and told the authorities what she knew, which actually was very little.

After a few nights in jail, she was released. Val decided it was time for a change of scenery, and started looking for work on a ship, hoping to get far away from her former life as a whole. Val is protective if not overly protective of her work. She takes great pride in her efforts and can be fiery tempered when someone messes with her things.

Hey JS! You're the first to submit an app, and maybe the only one. I can vouch for your reliability as a poster as well.

The site has a Serenity Character sheet, so go ahead and start working on that. Any questions just PM or post here.
