If you PM a GM, please do so to us both at the same time. Will be easier to make sure you are answered in a timely fashion. Just make sure both Flaming Dead Man and Sparrowhawke are in your 'to' section.

This is just an interest check, for the time being!
We're deriving from the actual Serenity RPG book for mechanics and some details, though we also want to make it our own. Some new planets and moons may be created and each will have a major city or well-known hub at which to congregate. We're still unsure if the canon characters will be available or not.
Ships (of which there will be a few to choose from) will be available through in-game RP. Money must be earned to make any purchases and a system will be devised for this. Ships will be obtained through means such as theft, bartering, auctions, or buying strait from the manufacturer. Repairs will need to be made and having a decent crew is recommended.
You can choose between the Alliance or the Independents and a number of occupations will be available on either side, and some neutral. The more familiar being captains, pilots, mechanics, mercenaries, doctors, and various military ranks. Playing a Reaver *may* become available, though at this point only though in-game play; Reavers will otherwise be played by GMs or as NPCs.
We do intend to put a lot of work in, so the game may take a while to begin. I expect that once development is far enough ahead, we'll allow a sort of 'beta' in which you'll be allowed to begin building your character's reputation, plotting, etc. We're anxious to start, but we do want to make sure it's well enough thought out so that it lasts.
We currently expect the game to be placed in the extremes forum due to Reaver activity, but also intend to keep this much in a separate thread. Vanilla to extreme is welcomed, though we also hope to see this game focus much more on the plot, drama, tragedies, etc. than the sex aspects.
We intend to tally bounties, so bringing in a criminal will be a good way for an aspiring mercenary or prospective captain to earn cash! We (as GMs) intend to play various dealers and such to offer jobs around the galaxy, some of which may pit your character against others in the form of competition. Many GM made characters will be hunted for bounty or otherwise, and we don't intend to make them all easy targets. :)
'Real' dangers will be posed as you pass through Reaver territory or a group of Reavers decides to invade a town; you'll be expected to kill or outsmart them before they do you! Plenty of opportunity will be given to avoid or escape the confrontations; we don't want to kill off player characters unless permission is given, though rape and mutilation may still be a strong factor. If dice rolls fail and you're desperate to keep your character alive, we'll find a way to come to the rescue!
I think that's all I've got for information, at the moment (I still have to look through the book, myself) but more will be added as things develop.
This is all subject to change as it is built on and suggestions are made!
Feel free to PM or ask questions here.
- Well, the book provides a nice description of each planet, so we'll likely just go from this. We'll start with just a few of them, then expand as we go.
- Ships will each have their own thread; this will help to keep it organized. Reaver activity will be limited to 'invasions' and the like. If we can manage to get the allowance for enough threads, they will also have their own for any lovely torturing and such. I'd much prefer to keep the more extreme stuff separate from the rest, though non-con and should be allowed throughout.
- Considering starting a wiki or similar for detailed game information...
Some concepts for you to chew on and hopefully offer some contributions to!
- How the use of other languages (particularly Chinese, for obvious reasons) should be handled in posts.
