Lu Is a Puzzle and a Treasure

I don’t talk about my crew mates much. We came together to do a job, er I guess a bunch of jobs and we get paid. I’d like to think that we is all, each of us an expert in our field, as they say on the vids. Roark knows his way around just about any gun. The Doc, …

[Meta] Insert Photo Montage Here

It has been a crazy few weeks for me and I am so far behind on Divas posts that we are going to have to resort to a tried ‘n true movie method to get ourselves out of this hole. Yep, photo montage. There have been some great props and some amazing gameplay and dang it! It needs to be…

Runaway Horses

I wasn’t alone in wonderin if we was gonna get paid. Bailey had been quick to take the ice, fer sure. But bringin back the money? Hm. I liked him and all, but you just don’t know with these little out worlders. Soon as knife ya as look at ya. Not like back home. Over dinner Roark asked “How’d you learn …

We Ditch the Ice

We hadn’t gone but a block when Miss V just wilted like a plucked flower. “It is so hot! How do you stand it? I just….” She wobbled a little on her fancy shoes. The Doc was right there. “Brigid, when’s the last time you had any water? I’m afraid you are dehydrated.” The Doc turned to me. “Get Roark…

New Friends and Old Problems

As we entered the planet atmosphere, we hit some serious turbulence. Roark scrambled to make sure that our guests were nice and secure in their bunks. It wouldn’t do to bring the mayor back bruised and battered! I headed to the engine room. With this sort of entry I knew that the old girl would need a little TLC …

Planet Fall: Regina

We agreed to help Fox get Hawks down to the planet. We had the ice and we knew that Bailey Sackett was our contact for delivery. “I know old Bailey!” Fox was expansive over dinner. “Runs the finest hardware store in this part of the ‘verse. People comes from miles and miles to rummage through his wares.” Miss V could sense me …

Traveller and other games

I’ve got this sudden desire to run some Traveller. This desire is particularly odd since the last time I played Traveller was back when I was about 13, and that was only for one session in any case. Then I’ve occasionally looked at the rulebooks, but the last time was over a decade ago. In fact, it’s getting closer to two…

Once More Into The Fray

When I shook off the memories of battle, I realized that there was talking going on. One of the new fellers had a top hat on and was acting like a big shot. He had these triplets fanned out behind him. They looked like they knew the business end of brass knuckles that’s for sure. My folk had moved off to the …

Battle Wounds

Well I can tell you that I was anxious to leave the ship. It hadn’t been that long that we’ve been in the Black, but it always feels good to have some terra firma under your feet. I have to say the idea of being around some mining equipment didn’t hurt. It was me, Prudence

This weeks Free Stuff is : Firefly RPG Here’s How It Is… The Earth got used up, and we found a new solar system and used terraforming technology to create hundreds of new Earths. The central planets formed the Alliance and decided that all worlds should unite under their rule. There was some disagreement on…

From Ice to Ice

After just a few days of loungin at the lake house on Osiris, I was all twitchy. I don’t hold with this relaxin life style. It’s just not right. I weren’t gonna say anything to no one about it. I didn’t want to be the possum in the soup, if you know what I mean. But

Scotch on Ice

While the group was in the kitchen, me and Roark arrived at the front door. I hitched up my skirts to climb the stairs. “You’re wearing your gorram boots!” Roark’s lips barely moved. “Well yeah. In case we gotta run. I’m ready. Got some ChemPlast too. Can’t be too careful when you’re rubbing elbows with

Inspiration [Carnival]

Part of the RPG Bloggers Carnival.  For more information on this month’s carnival, check out Campaign Mastery . Johnn Four asked the following question: What non-game media have most inspired your games and how? It’s an interesting one, to be sure.  Inspiration comes from all directions, so it’s interesting (and useful) to reflect on where our own inspiration comes from.  For me…

First Annual Diva Scavenger Hunt

My stint as GM ended early. I really thought I had at least one more session but you know how it is — sometimes the players choose the right path every time. I was stunned to have them finish the Gala quest line so soon. That meant that Angel needed a chance to read over

At the Baron’s Gala

That Frida, she had some good grub at the Noble Grape, but boy was she a mean one! Can’t say that she hires for niceness neither. There was this one old gal who kept yelling in my ear. I ain’t that deaf! But Frida, not much gets past her ear — even when she ain’t in

“Maggie, That Button Calls to Me Something Powerful!”

I stood there, with my hands gripping the lip of the oak wine barrel. My eyes fixed on the cleverly hidden button. “Maggie, that button calls to me something powerful! I want to push it. I want to, Maggie.” “You know what Brigid says about the cargo, Swei. You no touchey the cargo!”  I stayed silent. Maggie

[meta] Game Master Me

We’ve been rotating out our Game Master duties. Between Angel and Michelle, they kept us rocking and rolling for two and a half years with Shackled City, so it was a great chance to learn a new system and give everyone a chance to be at the helm. With Legos as our mainstays for props, I

Wherein I Tackle a Reaver

No sooner had the Doc asked the good question of why someone would lock up a specimen slide like it was the Hope diamond from Earth that Was, when Mags’ voice came over the comm. “You’ve got company! Looks like our shuttle and that means — the Reavers!” I felt my face go numb for a

Six-Shooters & Spaceships

The Six-Shooters & Spaceships sourcebook for the Serenity RPG provides plenty of what a body needs to stay alive in Joss Whedon’s space western universe: weapons, equipment and spaceships. The first half of the book, Guns & Gear, covers everything from new firearms to fresh fruit to high-tech cybernetics. The second half – Crew & Spaceships – has statistics and floorplans for …
