This looks like an awesome game, but I don't have the Serenity RPG book so I suppose I'm gonna have to pass... sigh.

Note that I'll be looking for 1 or two players for one of the other Serenity Games I have going, and that one is Big Damn Hero level. Be needing a pilot and possibly one other. Should you not make in this one, I'll post the link to the other when apps are closed here.

Also...

Go ahead and create those character sheets. The site has the template. Put a link in your app and I'll start looking over them.

Got Sunshine's sheet here.

I'm pretty new to the system, so for the fun of it, I'm going to keep whipping up other concepts. If you still end up needing extra players and not Sunshine, lemme know. :3

My knowledge of the serenity system only goes as far as character creation. And I wouldn't trust that, any assistance I can get would be grand.

NAME: Narine Skye
SKILLSET: Techie/saboteur
PLANNED ASSETS: Comptech (Minor), Cortex Specter (Minor), In Plain Sight (Minor), Mathwiz (Minor), Steady Calm (Minor).
PLANNED COMPLICATIONS: Amnesia (Minor), Dark Secret (Major), Loyal (Minor), Shy (Minor).

DESCRIPTION: Skye appears to be in his early thirties. His eyes are a rich hazelnut brown and his sandy grey hair has been cut into a flat top though his fringe is longer creating an effect like the prow of a sea bound ship. Heís the quiet sort of person prone to avoiding people when he can though he likes to have their company in the room.

BACKGROUND: Born on a core world 30 odd years ago. No further information found.

Hey there, i'm new to the site and pbp in general, have signed me up to one of the solo games to get some practice in, but i havent had a reply yet. I do however have experience at serenity. I have run a campaign or 2 and know the RPG rules for serentiy quite well. Wouldnt mind opting in if your alright with someone who isn't new to the pbp format. Its thats ok give me a day and i can have a charcter on your desk.

I don't think so.

But there are places to download or look up the various traits (Assets/complications) The rest someone with a book (like me) can look up for you.

Let me sum up Character creation best I can without getting sued

First you think 'COWBOYS IN SPACE' and devise a concept, may want to take into account what the GM is looking for but he said make want YOU want, do that. (I go for the tech role because I'm a qualified Technician IRL, so I'm real familiar/comfortable with that sort of thing)

Then you choose your traits, at minimum, one Assets (good stuff) and one Complication (makes life interestin’). Traits are bought with your Attribute Points, why is good to do this before buying your attributes. (2 for a Minor, 4 for a Major, negatives for Complications) You can only have up to five Assets and five Complications. Their costs need not cancel each other out but most of us do it that way because we don't like loosing points. (actually because I have the Amnesia complication the GM is to slap me with a Complication of his choosing which will net me bonus points, this complication does count towards my limit, hence why I currently only have 4)

Now buy your attributes, you can see from my sheet that you got 6 of them, I'm sure you can work out whats what. Each is worth a die type from d4 to d12 (the maximum for a beginning character). The cost of each die is equal you that die (4 points for a d4, 12 points for a d12, etc.) pretty simple, you want to be strong and dumb? d12 in STR and d4 in INT, you get the picture. you have 42 points to spend on Attributes + the cost of your complications - the price of your assets. (a d6 in an attribute is considered to be an average adult.)

You got these extra attributes too, Life Points (Vitality + Willpower die types added together, not a die) and Initiative (Agility + Alertness) and speed which is default 15 unless you have an assets or complication which modifies it.

Now picken what ya do. Skills. same as Attributes it uses die and the cost is the same as that die, but this time you have 62 points to spend. The skills listed on your character sheet are 'General skills' and may only advance to a d6. a d2 is a basic familiarity, no training though. d4 signifies you got some basic training and a d6 represents a level of competence at which ya could get paid an average wage for not difficult work with that skill. But you can go beyond a d6 with 'Specialties' (that begin at d8). Specialties are more focused version of the general skill like say 'Slight of hand' is a part of covert, 'Pistols' is part of Guns and 'Hacking' means you should see a doctor about your throat, I mean part of Technical Engineering. their costs are lower 2 for a d8, 4 for a d10 and 6 for a d12, but the associated General skill must be at d6 before you can specialize. The book does give examples of Specializations, but if you use your head and go with your gut, you'll do fine.

Now fill in personal details such as gender, height, weight, home world and the like. Make sure your background and history are spiffy and your rocking! Oh, don't forget to name yourself, might be bit embarrassing to not have one.

Regarding gear: your probably gonna want to get a copy of the book for that, but if you have a rough idea of what you want I can look it up for you. you have $750 to spend. A lot of the really mundane things aren't listed in the book and it says to just use IRL prices, you know, things like clothes that stop you getting arrested for not wearing them.

I hope this helps and doesn't get me sued.

I hate it when a post disappears...

Scarabus - Looks good so far. Go ahead and try to finish out the sheet. If you need any help just ask.

Kyramor - She looks great. Only hitch is that there are no "d5"s in Serenity. You'll need to go down to 4 or up to 6 on those to balance her out.

Oryhara - Please, by all means submit a character. It really helps me out having players who know the system as well, if not better, than I. And don't worry, if there's a learning curve anywhere for you, we'll work around it.

ghost6442 - Thanks for helping out, Mucho gracias! Also, sheet looks good Might I suggest...

Character Sheet is Here

And now for some Background stuff.

Part of a Conversation with a Freighter Captain.....Had a real odd fellow on the last trip out in the black. He was all a bit lost and vague. Didn't know where he came from, not too sure I imagine where he's going either. Couldn't find any record of the man either, its just like he fell out of the black.

That said, for a man that couldn't remember much, he knew how to fight. Had a raid on my boat just off the moon here, held up by some pirates and the like. Either way Kaiv managed to grab a gun of one of the raiders before stabbing him, shooting the next one and throwing the knife at the third, killed all 3 in a blink of the eye. Asked him how he had managed it and why he protected us, couldn't answer either other than to say it just felt right.

He did get very tetchy on various occasions and also tried to escape one evening whilst we were sailing. Fortunately the doc was a real good shot with a rifle and tranquilized from afar since he had knifed the bots I had on board, claiming they were alliance scum. Kept him sedated for a week. Doc said his brain is closer to soup than grey matter.

Would of liked to of got him to a hospital but he just vanished in front of my eyes as soon as we touched down, mentioned something about finding medical supplies, even though we have plenty and we were next to the hospital. Not seen him since......


Description

Kaiv is a average looking person, 5'4", brown hair medium skin tone, no discernable features whatsoever. Kinda looks like your average joe. As such its easy to lose him in a crowd, although there may be times where one might want to disappear.

Kaiv has little history to name of, not even he knows what happened in his past. Family, birth place and previous jobs all lost to his amnesia that made his past an enigma. His memorable history is only recent, being in the last 3 months or so, sailing with a freighter between the core worlds and the border zones. Kaiv does however suffer from some sort of paralyzing flashbacks which overwhelm his senses. So far these havenít affected kaiv too much as he has various drugs to keep them under control but they are running out.

His memory isn't the only thing that is missing. Kaiv seems to lack emotion as to the surrounding events either happiness or sorrow and pain, the is practically no reaction. Kaiv also appears not to exist, the cortex does not list his existence and nor does he know why.

Kaiv does have apparent skill in guns and fighting, but to his knowledge these skills have not been learnt by Kaiv, and are ingrained in his memory. He does however always carry a combat knife, which has "Убийца" inscribed on the blade, Kaiv doesn't seem to know what it means.

Whoops! Sorry Drach. I was sitting at a weird angle to my laptop due to sleeping cat issues, so I couldn't see quite right. All of those were intended to be d6s. ^^; Fixed!

Thought this might be useful.

Oh btw Trinity, the character sheet adds extra lines (after saving) for additional specialties, thought you'd like to know.
And Drach, be careful, you do have editing permission for my sheet and I know how your phone likes eating things.
I've lost were it said the GM can tack you with an That you have to leave a slot for.extra complication if you take Amnesia, might have been someones home-rule.
