The roleplay I run - my characters
Friday, May 14, 2004

Ok, I've started running a firefly roleplay using my own d20 system, it begins 1 week after the pilot episode and after the great first session we had I thought people might be interested in what happens. Havn't decided if I'm going to fic them or just note them, but it sure will be entertaining!

The characters are:
Christopher Brannen: A rogue and a smuggler, Brannen is looking for a crew and a ship to take irradiated Trans-U parts back to his station for testing. He works for a company called Trans-Universal shipping.

CJ Stark: A young independence pilot, he was ready to go into serenity valley to save his father but when the independents pulled out and his father died, he left the war effort and returned home to become a racing pilot. Finding out his mother was being beaten by her husband, the town mayor, CJ literally rammed his ship into him and killed him. On the run from the law CJ has come to whitefall on the gas his ship had left, and is now looking for work to get further out of the system.

Timothy Raser: A doctor who, though trained by the Alliance, swapped sides to the Independents after he left. His empathy for his patients causes him to cut on himself every time he loses one, which in turn led to him turning to a PCP-like substance to cope. Raser is a mystery to the crew, calm and collected his role is as yet uncertain.

Morgan Zeppelin: An Alliance grunt, while visiting his parents on Whitefall he was held up and lost all his money, the Alliance unwilling to pick him up have ordered him to get off the moon by any means necessary.

Devlin Murdock: Sadist, likes dancing. Devlin likes to skin things, and unfortunatly he has a tendency for doing it in public places. An Independent mechanic, he worked on large freighter class ships until the end of the war. Since then, he has been taking odd jobs wherever he can get them.

Crystal O'Hara: Beautiful, intelligent and with a love of all things pink, Crystal is a companion booking passage on the Daisy (Brannen's new ship) to take her to the nicer places in the 'verse. Her reasons for being on Whitefall, and her past are a mystery.

Oh, I'm all for the game. It's just that my friends and I converted "Cyberpunk" to d20 years ago, and 'Firefly' is basically just Cyberpunk-in-Space.

Of course, I might just be a cynical bastard.

Come on Quicksand, leave it be. At least chronic's trying to set up something new for us fans to do in our spare time.

Its a good start by the way, Im interested in seeing how the game plays.

Morgan Zeppelin?!

I don't know you guys, but it's funny that even from this distance, I can pick out the gamer stereotypes with broken tweezers and no thumbs.

WRITE A FANFIC!! You know you want to.
