  • Scout: It was fun to play a teenager for a change, she was so cute
    September 19, 2018, 07:44:28 PM
  • Scout: Maybe I'll bring her back if Nautilus ever comes back
    September 19, 2018, 07:43:40 PM
  • Axe: fair enough
    September 19, 2018, 07:41:17 PM
  • Scout: I'm not super heartbroken over it even though I liked playing her
    September 19, 2018, 07:19:47 PM
  • Scout: I don't really see her working without her dad-uncle though
    September 19, 2018, 07:19:19 PM
  • Axe: BB did say she wanted to bring back the Naut, but that was months ago and I havent heard anything since so idk if itll happen any time soon
    September 19, 2018, 07:09:50 PM
  • Axe: Well I mean Pen is the same age as Freya, which is technically old enough to work. So if you wanted you could bring her over. Might have to re write her a little maybe.

  • Scout: But there's still hope for Caden and Paul, maybe, someday...
    September 19, 2018, 05:47:10 PM
  • Scout: Well, I finally got around to bringing my boys over from the archive. Don't see much point in importing Penelope because I can't really play her anywhere other than on Nautilus since she's a kiddo.

  • PurpleRiver: It's okay Scout... No worries at all!
    September 18, 2018, 08:52:24 PM
  • Elena: Oh! For the Allure, our Mechanic is Dash Winters instead of Nate.
    September 16, 2018, 06:20:03 PM
  • Lomari: Sounds good.
    September 16, 2018, 06:17:12 PM
  • Scout: Speaking of falling behind that is. I'm sorry PR!
    September 16, 2018, 04:46:15 PM
  • Scout: I feel bad for forgetting to bring my old characters over from the archive site even though you made that post about it months ago
    September 16, 2018, 04:46:05 PM
  • PurpleRiver: Gonna be working on those Crew Manifests again! Jee... I've fallen so far behind. If captains could help me by updating the census (I'm 90% sure I've given captains permission to edit the census so you can move your crews character sheets in and out of your ship area... )

  • Nazcool: FORGOT that I wasn't logged in here woops
    September 15, 2018, 09:31:35 PM
  • Guest225: awww xD also O.o this is so weird I can't access the site on my computer -but can on my phone. Is my computer being dumb?
    September 15, 2018, 09:30:55 PM
  • Scout: The other players didn't know I was a spy either. It was kind of like playing werewolf, which I hate because I am a really bad liar.
    September 15, 2018, 09:28:39 PM
  • Scout: My first tabletop character was an infiltrator among their group and boy was that difficult to pull off when you had to come up with excuses for your shady character actions on the fly
    September 15, 2018, 09:26:36 PM
  • Nazcool: Oh wow, yeah. My Dad's pretty fair in terms of what people know but he mostly runs fantasy games (ex. Dn'D & Pathfinder) so it's a bit different.

Site Plot

Finding Serenity


Finding Serenity is an original-character roleplay set in Joss Whedon's Firefly 'Verse. Events take place after the events of the Serenity movie.

The year is 2519.

Earth-That-Was is long gone. Humans found a new group of solar systems with dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. The "Core" planets are civilised, high-tech and under Alliance control. The "Border" worlds are diverse and distinct. The "Rim" is the wild west of the 'verse and the "Black" is where our ships travel, hoping to avoid the perils of space: Alliance, pirates, and the monsters known as Reavers.

So here we are, on the "raggedy edge". This is where our characters live. There are those who stick by the Alliance Government, those who want to rise up against it, and those that just don't care either way as long as they can make a living. With every turn, every choice put forward and every decision made we are FINDING SERENITY

The Newbie Guide

In order to try to make it as easy as possible for people to explore the game and get involved in it, this guide has been put together to explain the basics of joining Finding Serenity. The steps of this guide are set up in an order that will hopefully start by familiarizing you with the game and end with leading you through the application process. Feel free to skip around as you see fit, but try to hit every step so you don't miss any important information.

The Setting, Plot and Premise
Head over to these topics to learn some of the basics about Finding Serenity.

The Rules and Questions
Click HERE to see our list of rules and posting regulations. Post questions here or ask in the Shoutbox if you can't seem to find the answers you need at this point.  The site is rated 15+ or .  For those that don't know what the RPG Rating means.

Language 2: Swearing is generally permitted. However, the language cannot be used to severely abuse.

Sexual Content 2: Sexual content is permitted. References and writing about genitalia and sex acts are permitted, but explicit detail is not. Fade to black, or mature tagging are recommended.

Violence 2: Graphic violence is permitted. Explicit description or in-game narration violence is allowed.

Registration
Once you have a basic idea for a character, at least, register a sub-account with the first and last name of that character properly capitalized, please. If you are stuck for character ideas, you may want to check the Census and Employed forums to see what current players have come up with and how they've addressed their applications.  Also check out the Crew Manifests to see what positions are open.

The Application Process
Check out the application template and start filling it out. Once the application's done and posted in the Character Application forum (with your character's name as the thread title), wait for your application to be reviewed. Please don't post in any IC forums until your character has been approved.  Generally it is sooner but it can take up to 48 hours for someone to get back to you in relation to your application. To check which play-by's have already been taken please check the listing of the Casting Call.  Once you've completed your application add your chosen play-by to the Answer the Call thread to reserve them. Once your application has been approved and moved to the Census forum, you're ready to play!

Getting Started
If you don't already have threading or plotting opportunities lined up, posting a thread in the RP Opportunities forum with some brainstorming ideas may be a good way to introduce people to your character and get started. Feel free to PM individual players if you spot a specific character you would like to thread with.
