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 Allure
« on: May 11, 2018, 07:50:33 PM »
Hey all,

So the new ship is an Exeter named The Allure!   

The Exeter is a three deck ship with the main deck, a passenger in the middle (complete with almost all amenities) and a cargo deck. There is a quarter deck which is basically a shuttle bay on the top of the ship. You can see the floorplans here: http://www.findingserenity.net/index.php?topic=2151.msg22093#msg22093

The ship has passenger cabins (singles & doubles), a med bay, lots of cargo space, lounge, sizable engine room and will need a number of crew to function. This all means a variety of plots and storylines could happen. I have a couple of different of ideas of what to do.

The ship is owned by investors including the Companion Guild and The House with all taking a fair share of the profits and may require certain personnel or jobs done. The House, as in the Archives by Abbey. exist as a Guild similar to Companions but for professional gamblers and are officially licensed per the Alliance to run games and/or hold gambling events. They are rated on the metrics of Honesty and Reliability. The House also allows them to blackball gamblers or other similar professionals or clients just like Companions do.

I'll start generating ideas for setup, jobs, jumping off point, etc

The characters, at least initially, will have more of a Core influence. As time goes on, this could certainly change but, given the Investor group, it makes the most sense. So this is certainly an opportunity for the crew to get a growing wakeup call as they pass out of the White Sun system where all the Core worlds are and solidly into the Border and Rim planets. In fact, I may plan out an initial route the ship is expected to take. So this arc would certainly not be on the level of action of say Ronin.

I moved the crew list further down in the thread

Thanks!

I am interested. Although I am also a little worried about upping my active character count to 3, as I inevitably seem to have trouble keeping up with postings, so I might hold off on committing and wait and see what roles other people fill first...

But the characters I would currently be looking to bring one of are Cyrus Riggs and Jack Dekker, both ex military security types, or Benjamin Street, my favorite pilot. Or maybe a new character depending on who takes what role.

Is there any special meaning behind any of the names? A ship's name should ways hold some sort of significance to its captain.

Not at this point as they were just a list of names I came up with off the top of my head ... Buuuttt if you have another name suggestion, then please select Other.

Also, if you would like to be the ship's Captain and have a name preference in mind, please let me know.

Okay folks, the list of possible ship names is shrunk down and will close in 3 days. If you have not voted yet, please do so.

As for crew, with the interest expressed in the ship, who wants to start discussing crew? ... Or is this a busted ship idea that needs to be Shelved for later?

I'd like to join, but my schedule is getting more busy and I don't think I can afford to pile more characters on my plate right now. :(

Just wanted to let you know that it's not you, it's me! My mind is willing but I know I'd get overwhelmed.

Already I am betting on the following positions/skill sets being needed (based upon floorplan):

Captain/Companion -- Elena Marseille (Lomari)
Pilot (1-2) -- Karyn Wychovski (MacTrom), ??
Mechanic/Engineer -- ??
Electronics/Comp Tech -- ??
Doctor -- (Trina) ??
Cook -- Damien Riggs (Rolemancer)
Companion (still should have 1 more) -- ??
Gambler/Member of the House (1, maybe 2) -- ??, ??
Gunhand (1-2) --> could be former Alliance soldiers -- ??, ??
General hand/Steward/Cook's Assistant for those fancier occasions (maybe?) -- ?

Some of these could be doubled up or be secondary capabilities (except Companion or House member). But primary skill should be the lead on the boat. As of this moment, the starboard aft double cabins of the passage deck are going to be reserved for Companions so there could be two there. Everyone else of the crew would be sleeping on the main deck.

This does not count any Passengers that might be picked up following the initial launch of the ship.

If you are interested, please post some ideas. Some character thoughts for the non-Companions could include former Alliance military, a highly regarded professional skill school, etc.

I’m interested, since I seem to want more to do around here. I’m thinking one of my favorite characters as either gun hand or second pilot. Or I might construct a new character... have to think on it.

Ok, I have a former Alliance pilot that I’ll bring in, permission granted.

Do Damian and Elena know each other at all? ... I can certainly see a potential connection

Karyn could easily have been assigned/hired for the ship ...

Over the next couple of days, I will try to get some stuff up in the actual forum set up for The Allure. Possibly we can start with an episode zero of sorts with people getting the ship set up and crew gathered.

If no one creates a member of The House, then I will NPC that position

Also, will Elena be selecting someone to be acting as her XO should the need arise. This can be a doubled up position like hers.

I will be a member of the House.  After all, I did make it up...  I can't bring on Atarah; she would never be someplace without Richard.

Just give me some time.  I am currently on vacation.
