Firefly based rp OOC and IC are up.
« on: September 19, 2009, 09:16:17 PM »
Yeah, so ever since I had finished watching the entire series I wanted to get a rp going based off of Firefly, and since I'm getting bored and don't want to be wasting money on any games I'm going to see if anyone else is interested.

So in case you are viewing this and have no idea what Firefly is I'll explain about it a little.  Basically it's a space western tv show from a few years back.  One of the main theme's and almost always used in the intro was the line, 'A ship brings yah work, and a gun helps you keep it.'  The story is that Earth had finally been just about destroyed, so the race expanded and terraformed many other planets in a new galaxy.  The Alliance was formed to be the ruling power over the solar system.  And an opposing group had come about and there was a civil war, in which the Alliance ended up winning out.  The are in charge of everything, and are more or less a bad group.  But their rule tends to lessen the further away from the center of the system you are, and the planets at the edge are often left alone, usually to suffer. 
More info on the show.

So, what I'm thinking is that the game would revolve around either a medium to large ship, and possibly a settlement on a distant planet.  Or even a settlement that is just starting up. 
I was thinking that it should probably go either bon-h or nc-h,  with the respect for a players o/o especially if it were in nc.  But since one of the major characters in the show was a prostitute, non adult would be a bit silly if you ask me.  And I just think that the western styled theme, coupled with the left to die attitude that is often in the show, just lends itself more toward the nc side of things.
It would most likely be a free form. 

Any ideas or interest are much appreciated.

Last time I checked, Hulu.com has virtually (if not all) of the series.

Yep, I believe they do.  I didn't mention it since I think hulu is only available inside the US.  Glad you did though.

I would love to be a part of this. Watched the hell out of those episodes on DVD and on Hulu. You definitely have my interest. A ship would be an interesting idea, confined space usually brings good stories, both adult and not.

I would like to point out that Inara was hardly a prostitute. She was way too educated and cultured to be called that. :-)

Otherwise this thread certainly caught my eye. I'll keep watching. ;)

I concur, Inara was a companion.Calling her a prostitute is like calling the Eiffel Tower a big hunk of metal. I did see Serenity, and i bought the firefly series after that.it was a very well made series.Im not sure who I could play in it, but i would be interested.

It should be OCs if it's gonna be on a medium ship. That way there's plenty of possibilities.

Got room for another person? lol. I love Firefly and I've got both the series and the movie they made over it, lol.

I'd like to play either the pilot, like Wash but with my own twists, or the guy that does the muscle/securtiy work like Jane, lol.

Well, we certainly seem to be getting a good amount of interest in this.  I'll try and hash out some more ideas in my head and get them up tomorrow.  And there is certainly more room, as far as it goes we could always run multiple ships, or have a settlement/space port as well.  So if anyone else wants to join it's perfectly all right, I'll get the OOC/Char thread up tomorrow.

And yes Inara was a companion, I suppose I was leaning more towards Mal with that one. ;) 

Anyways, just to make clear also, I was not looking to have a complete parallel, with everyone playing a character from the series.  But more of just using the series for a setting and base with our own characters (who could  be based and have commonalities with with series characters) and our own story/s.

This Could be easy enough to Organize too, just make a ship and a crew list or something and their positions.

I would adore to play :)

phps we can have a slightly larger ship
or two ships -which fly close together and can-link with each other during normal travel
and only need to separate when doing other things ?

XD I'm happy to see such a large amount of interest coming in. 

So, first off is everyone ok with it being NC-H, as I said earlier it will be with respect for o/o's so if you wish to get involved with another players character please look over their o/o's and possibly contact them.  This would not be a game for the crew to be raping each other.  I'm looking for a lot more focus on the game/storyline then on sex. 

Also it seems everyone just wants to have a ship so we'll forgo the idea of a settlement.  So, just as a brief overview the Serenity had only a crew of five (leaving Inara out of the count because she rented a shuttle, and was not part of maintaining/running the ship) before taking on passengers, and with that in mind I'm thinking we may need to use a larger ship, or as Kate suggested multiple that can connect/disconnect. 
Given that a firefly was a medium transport, we may want something a bit larger than that.  So, if anyone wants to stick up pictures or plans feel free and we can decide on what we want to use. 

I apologize but I won't be on too much until later tonight (meaning about 12 hours for me.)  I'm a bit busy today, but I plan on getting up the ooc and character thread tonight, as soon as I'm sure NC-H would be ok.

Hardly. After all, Firefly/Serenity was a human-only universe. :-)

I think having a bigger ship would be fun, that way we have a bigger crew and more dangers as we fly through space, lol. I think we'd be a prime target for Reavers, Pirates and Mercenaries looking to loot the ship.

Oh, I have a question though, whether we have two ships that link or one big ship, would it/they have weapons?

All the Firefly fans know that Serenity didn't but this isn't Serenity as Merlyn stated. I think I can safely assume that ship weapons are probably one of the most expensive peices of armature in the galaxy but, the show did have alot of enemies that the Serenity crew came up against, that did have weapons on their ships.
Since we seem to be having a good turn out on this thread, I'm seriously just considering a security/enforcer type caracter, and forgoing the pilot idea.

Well, I was starting to think that we'd start off with just a transport, and then either modify it to add weapons, or get an attack ship that could attach to or reside in it.  I say that because in terms of the series there were not very many ships that had weapons, other than Alliance cruisers. 
And I might be remembering this incorrectly, but wasn't it outlawed by the Alliance to have weapons on your ship?  Because that would make it difficult to visit inner worlds, without getting blown up anyway.

And just as a side note, I'll most likely refer to the series over the movie, because I didn't like the movie all that much, especially compared to the Series, too much was changed and/or lost in my opinion.

Ok, sounds good to me but, I'm gonna pretend you didn't say that about the movie for my own peice of mind. I thought it carried on the series rather well, all they did was speed up events.

I'll be posting a character shortly, just gotta figure out some angles first, lol.

I like what people are putting in. Im thinking my character could have a secret past.She could be a former alliance assassin, like book. She could be their doctor.like book,she woudlnt volunteer too many details about her past.

She could have other skills. I;ll put up all that in the character thread.
