Howdy fellow browncoats, welcome to Airiana's Firefly RP. Since Sparky (aka Airiana) proclaimed herself the guru of everything Firefly she has been unanimously voted threadmaster of our RP set in the 'Verse that was Firefly.

So feel free to jump right in with a character idea (though lets leave the Captain position open for the moment to see what Sparky wants to do with it) and a name for the ship.

I like how this became my thread when I haven't even been here for a week, lol...

But anywho...

I'm wondering what people would like more.. to actually take up the characters from Firefly and be aboard the Serenity, or a rival ship? I have idea for both, but I would like to see which will be more popular. And those of you who participated in the Serenity thread (http://www.rpgconsortium.com/forums/discussions.cfm?forumid=78&topicid=280597) from the movie, get yer arses over here! :P

Well I'm here kiddo and personally either wouldn't bother me in the least though it might be easier with the Rival ship. Either way I'm in and I think Shall is too and I also think Angel is a diehard Firefly fan also.

Yeah... that's what I was thinking... with just sort of... guest appearances from the crew of Serenity, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought. And I know I have you and Shall (you haven't gotten Dawnie into Firefly?!), and Flan was in the movie thread too, though I don't think I realized Angel was a fan. Guess we'll just have to see who turns up!

Actually I think Dawny agreed to join a little earlier this evening...

So what sort of character are you looking at playing Sparky? We do need a Captain and a female captain would work... ;)

Ah, so you have exposed her to the goodness that is Firefly! Good Aussie! *Petpets (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v211/Airiana/Emoticons/pet.gif)* :D:D:D

And well... I suppose I could be the captain... actually... I have an idea of her character forming as we speak... (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v211/Airiana/Emoticons/mwahaha.gif)

Hmm... maybe I should just go ahead and start the thread, at least the OOC part of it... but until then...

Here's the format for the character sheet. I will be accepting applicants.. well, right now! :P And if you want the formatting seen below, just reply to this message and copy and paste (easier than rewriting the bold tags for everything)! I will be putting my Captain up probably later tonight.

Since we do have people here who use the metric system as well as us brats here in the states who desperately cling to the imperial system, I would appreciate it if all heights and weights were expressed in both. Here's a quick calculator to use: Weight and Height Converter (http://www.icb2001.com/Weight_And_Height_Converter.asp" target="_blank).

The thread has been made... hopefully it'll get more traffic than this is! *Sighs*

Anywho... linkage!

Firefly/Serenity RP! (http://www.rpgconsortium.com/rpgforums/discussions.cfm?forumid=4&topicid=268159&ooc=1)

Actually I think Dawny agreed to join a little earlier this evening...

yes i agreed *smiles with a bit of uncertainty* though i am a tad reluctant because i have yet to see an episode... *waits for the gasps of astonishment to subside* but my Aussie-boy has assured me that all i need to do is watch one episode to get a general idea... so Sparky, if you wouldn't mind helping me with a few character guidelines/details i would appreciate it ;)

Not a problem, Dawnie! Yeah... watching an episode or two (or watching the movie) should give you a pretty good idea. Also, if you want to pick up some additional information about the 'Verse, FireflyFans.net Reference Database (http:// http//www.fireflyfans.net/referencelist.asp?) is a good place to go.

As far as character guidelines and details... well, I'm posting my character sheet for the captain below, so maybe that will give you an idea. Look at this, what is in the OOC portion of the RP thread, and paruse the database above, and you should be shiny :D (that's Firefly talk, btw ;)). If you have any other questions, lemme know!

Name: Instantia Cornu
Alias: Tia
Position on Ship: Captain

Age: 33
Gender: Female
Race: Caucasian
Physical Description: Instantia has dark red hair and icy blue eyes. She stands at an average height of 5'5" (165 cm), and weighs around 125 lbs. (56.7 kg). She always wears her gun strapped to her hip and sports black combat boots. Her hair is kept tied back at the base of her neck, but wisps of it often escape around her face and ears. As far as clothing, she generally wears breeches in dark colors, usually of the variety that shows of her curves. Her shirts are generally of the same material and also dark in color, though she sometimes will wear a leather vest instead. The only jewelry she wears (if it could be called jewelry!), is a cord of dark brown leather tied around her right wrist running a third of the way up her forearm.

Personality: Tia is a no-nonsense sort of gal who requires the utmost loyalty from her crew, which she returns in kind. She is one who keeps her word, and has a code of honor that she never tarries from. She is honest, but also able to lie to your face and not even flinch when the situation calls for it. She also has a very sardonic and at times sadistic sense of humor.
Biography: Tia grew up on a far-flung colony of the border planets called Dyton. Though she grew up there, she has since lost most of her British-sounding accent. When she was fifteen, she boarded a spaceship called Isis, working odd-jobs for the crew until she worked her way up to being first mate. When the captain died in a gunfight when Tia was twenty-one, she took command of the ship and has been its leader ever since. She has a vehement distaste for the Alliance and tries to stay out of their control whenever possible.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Tia prefers firearms of nearly any sort, but her favorite is the Ruger Mk. II .22 auto pistol (for reference, this is the same gun used by Inara in the episode "Trash" while Yolanda/Saffron/Bridgette is digging through the trash in the middle of the desert), which she keeps at hand at all times.
Specialty: Convincing people to her way of seeing things and using force if necessary.
Other(s): Just because I thought y'all might like the enlightenment :P... Instantia means "perseverance" in Latin, and cornu means "strength" or "courage".
