    [Firefly] Filthy lucre

    I've talked about this on here before, I think, but I struggled a bit with how money is such a non-entity in Firefly. I don't want Shadowrun-style money tracking, but it feels like for a game based on earning money however you can to keep flyin', money plays such a minuscule role in things. So...

    MoonHunter Sayeth 20171225

    One of my favorite game sessions and what we can learn from it I was recently chatting with someone I met at a convention. She was a drop in on one of my Serenity Games, but never really joined the chronicle. Chatting with her reminded me of a conversation we had during one of those game. I...

    [Firefly RPG] To boldly go...

    Has anyone used the Firefly RPG to run Star Trek? It seems to me that the system would perform that task admirably, with distinctions being a great way to sort out alien races, different branches of Starfleet, etc. And it's the right combination of cinematic that fits in a Trek 'verse. If you...

    [Firefly RPG] Looking for Reaver stats

    Hi there, when I was browsing the books, I was wondering that there are no stats of Reavers (only for one ship). Do you have any Reaver stats for Extras, Minor GMCs and Major GMCs?

    [Firefly] Other Systems

    I dabbled with Firefly via MWP. Don't like it much. Also did a bit of Serenity. Both fell flat with my players. We enjoyed the Unisystem "hack" for it (found in an issue of Eden Studios Presents). These days, with a "call" from a few players to try some role playing in the Verse, I've been...

    Star Wars using Firefly (Cortex Plus)

    I am considering running a Star Wars game using the Firefly rules but I need some ideas of how best to incorporate the Force into the ruleset. I am currently thinking: 3 new skills; Control, Sense and Alter (as per d6 Star Wars) Force powers as Specialisations of one of the 3 skills - Some...

    [Firefly] So how is it?

    What's your opinion of MWP's Firefly RPG? What works and what doesn't? I'm familiar with Cortex Plus but am wondering about that game in particular. Thanks.

    [Firefly] GMCs, Distinction Triggers, and Assets

    I'm finally about to run my first session of Firefly (in around 8 hours!), and ran into this curly question when designing some GMCs. GMCs still get Distinctions and Triggers, but what happens when one of their Triggers would create an Asset? GMCs aren't allowed to take advantage of Assets, so...

    Firefly RPG: Is it any good?

    I noticed for the first time in our local Pop culture store (called Zing, they sell boardgames, toys, that sort of thing), they have just started stocking rpgs, well just one RPG atm. It's the Firefly RPG core rules and some campaign/background book. Assuming you like the Firefly TV series of...

    Firefly RPG resources anyone?

    Nothing on the Margeret Weis website. Not even PDFs of the ship and char sheets. Or am I just missing it?

    About to run Firefly - any advice?

    I'm planning to run a one shot of the Firefly system this week, because a lot of our regular group can't make it. I'm not doing anything fancy, just using the pre-made characters and the adventure in the book. I've never run Firefly, or any of the cortex plus games for that matter, but I have...

    Is Anybody Playing Firefly?

    Is anybody still playing Firefly? I heard a lot of talk about it, but not much since, and with a new book out, I was wondering about people's thoughts.

    IC Firefly -- The Path of the Righteous

    PERSEPHONE, EAVESDOWN DOCKS The roar of a ship taking off a few bays over briefly drowns out the thunder and sussurous hiss of the rain that's been coming down since this morning. Undeterred, crowds of people still mill under cook shack canopies and in small knots of conversation. Porter mules...

    Firefly/Serenity - tell me about your games?

    Hello, I'm currently in the early stages of planning and putting together a game in the Firefly/Serenity 'Verse, and am on the hunt for inspiration. As such, I'd really like to hear about your games. If you could regal me with stories of your crews, ships, and their misbehaviours, that'd be...

    Firefly or Serenity plus Supplements?

    So there's the motion that the next game I run should be Serenity. I own the Serenity rpg and the adventure book and Out in the Black. I think it's a system that's... okay. A little clunky here and there (like how to run ship stats vs. pilot stats) and the tracking of damage, but mostly...

    Firefly RPG (Cortex +) - what is it like in actual play?

    So I have been buying the odd RPG, mainly to see how other systems work, getting a feel for what's out there. Maybe find "the" system. Latest purchases were Barbarians of the Aftermath, Mouse Guard and Firefly. Reading Firefly it had lots of clear examples, was interesting to read the...
