Serenity herself will initially begin with only the "core crew" aboard - Mal, Zoe, Wash and Kaylee. More precisely, the chronology begins just after Kaylee has replaced Bester's role of mechanic. The other five Big Damn Heros (BDHs) can also start roleplaying immediately, however, on the worlds and ships they occupied prior to encountering Serenity and will be playing out the details of their individual back-stories until they join the crew. This leaves plenty of room for the series' minor characters to get notable play and for the creation of original characters. The plot will progress parallel to all the basic events of the canon although players have the freedom to modify the manner in which their character(s) react to each event if kept plausible. In other words, this game will not only fill-in the blanks of the canon but may take it and shift it into a mild alternate universe. Or it may not, it all depends on what you choose to do!
Game play will be carried out in two formats: third person threads posted to the main community and first person posts in your character(s) journal. For more information on both as well as the other technical aspects of the game, please refer to the Rules & FAQ.
