'Firefly:Maria" is set in the 'Firefly/Serenity' game universe (for those not familiar, think space western where you root for the black hats) and follows the exploits of the crew of a tramp freighter, 'Maria'. The captain of the 'Maria' is a former gunslinger and thief (former, definitely not reformed) and is recruiting his first crew after winning the ship in a poker game. There'll be some honest work and a bit of smuggling, of course, but much of the drama will come from a 'Verse where what's right and what's legal are very different things. When people go to crime bosses for justice and the government to steal another man's land, morality tends get muddy.

I'm looking for several players willing/able to post several times a week. While I want/need the usual types (gunslingers/pilots/mechanics), I also welcome unique and different types of characters. The future will need tinkers and traders and traveling doctors and blacksmiths and gunsmiths and Shepherds and Companions and notary publics and entertainers (boxers/singers/actors/jugglers). I'll work with you if you have an interesting idea. The web page is at and you can email me at gamemaster 451 ('at') hotmail.
