Looking for people to play in a Firefly RPG

October 1, 2009

I’m recuiting people to play in a play-by-email Firefly RPG.

– You do not need RPG experience to play, new players are welcome!

What is an RPG?

RPG means roleplaying game…like Dungeons and Dragons, or any computer game where you play a character in a story. You create a character in a fantasy setting, and you describe that characters actions and what they say in the world.

What does play-by-email (PBEM) mean?

It means we will play the game over e-mail or some kind of posting/forum setup (like yahoo! groups). It means that you don’t have have to set aside specific time in your schedule to play, you play when you have time to check your e-mail and respond whether it be 8am, 12pm, or 3am.

What is Firefly?

The universe we are playing in is the Serenity or Firefly universe. It is based on the tv show “Firefly” (Joss Whedon, aired on Fox) and the subsequent movie Serenity. While you do not need to know the details of the setting, you need to have seen Serenity at least once and enjoyed it. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it, it is a space-western.

How do we play?

You will be a crew member aboard a ship similar to Serenity. You will converse with other characters and go about your every day life on the ship. I am the GM, meaning I am in charge of telling you what happens as a result of your actions, and what the rest of the world is doing. You and your team will complete jobs to earn money for Serenity and yourselves. You will need to occasionally make dice rolls if you want to use a skill, or when your team is fighting enemies.

What are the requirements to play?

  • Be familar with the setting Serenity/Firefly
  • Be fairly competent at writing e-mails in English (complete sentences, minimal errors, etc…)
  • Enjoy sci-fi and fantasy
  • Have regular e-mail access
  • Be interested in reading, writing and story-telling

The RPG system

We are using the Cinematic Unisystem rules. If you don’t know what these are, that is perfectly okay. I will walk you through the rules step-by-step.

How do I sign-up ?

E-mail me:, or message me through facebook.
