Hey, i am a huge fan of FireFly and i have decided that im going to try and make a game, its not going to be anything overly great, it will be a online text-based game. what i really need is help on what it can be about if you know what i mean. if youve every played a text-based game before then youll probably know what i mean. i myself although im a great fan i cant remember what the currency in FireFly is called, what i really neeed to know is what the currencey could be, the weapons could be, the 'races' im was thinking browncoat alliance, and reavers :|, and any other stuff that you would think would be cool

The Serenity RPG http://www.serenityrpg.com/ would probably be of help to you in your endeavor.

For your specific questions Firefly has two common currencies Platinum and Credits. Platinum apears to be more of a rim world thing while Credits seem to be more in evidence in the Core. Weapons are all of the common weapon types of today with the occasional newtech device like a laser pistol (as used by Rance Burgess in Heart of Gold) or sonic stunners (as used by the Feds in Ariel and Trash.)

For fuller details I again refer you to the Serenity RPG but the names of the inhabited planets/moons are as follows: Sihnon, Londinum, Beylix, Greenleaf, Hera, Border Moons, Osiris, Jiangyin, Dyton, Ita, Verbena, Angel, Boros, Higgins' Moon, Ezra, Bellerophon, Athens, Whitefall, Haven, Three Hills, Deadwood, Newhall, Lilac, Paquin, Salisbury, Aberdeen, Whitier, Muir, St. Albans, Kerry, Highgate, Harvest, Regina, Bernadette, Persephone, Shadow, Ariel, Beaumond, Liann Jiun, Silverhold, Santo. And of course the uninhabited planet of Miranda.

On the front page of this site, if you scroll down, on the left side is a useful font of information... the firefly database.

You mean like a MUSH? Because there's:

http://www.objectsinspace.com/


If not, I think that there's a bunch of info there as well. Also, I remember someone else talking about making a text-based game as well. So, if you are going to make your own, you might want to contact him/her for a collaberation. Can't remember exactly who, but searching the archives would bear fruit.

Good luck

Multi-User Shared Hallucination

Or somewhat like a MUD (Muli-User Dungon), just more general.

They are text-based as well.


You should really look into the above link to see if it is what you're going to do. You might want to help if not making your own.

Well its not relli a board game more figuers like warhammer and the like only instead of using dice im going to use Cards (2 packs together)it make the game a lots faster and easier but making the weapons fair is relli hard because if i make them have to many cards then they take people out relli easy but if they have too little they wont be used and i have to have them all differnt so im kinda stuck there but i have played it a few times with my brother different rules each time and im always the Browncoats ahh the advantages of making the game hows yours coming along now you have a name

Ok, so I register, get an auto response confirmation, click the link to confirm and get the message that I am all registered, but when I try to log in, I get this message:

"Incorrect Login Information"

Is there a bug or something?
