Outlaws Among the Stars

The Story:
A group of outlaws, runaways, and travelers come together on a Fenris class ship. Some are working towards a better future, others from a dangerous past. As they work as a team towards their goals, the Alliance, other outlaws, and those dangerous pasts try to put an end to this renegade band. Though Reavers are dangerous, something else, something strange is happening. People you know are starting to disappear. Not kidnapped or killed, just missing and those that would normally be around them act like nothing is out of the ordinary. Maybe you feel the need to crack the case and search for these missing people, maybe you could care less, but one thing is for certain; whatever it is, is hunting you down as well.

The Crew: (only five spots, due to capacity of the ship: if I have the capacity wrong please let me know, this is just what I found)
Slot 1 : Selena Hunt
Slot 2: Meredith Wynter
Slot 3:
Slot 4:
Slot 5:

The Ship:

You will have the lucky pleasure of boarding a Fenris class ship, she's named "Madame White Snake" after the ancient lore of a snake that can transform between a snake and human. She has a light bulk capacity, giving enough space for five people. The Fenris class ships are considered "express freighter", very fast for cargo that need to be transported on a tight deadline. Madame White Snake especially holds this reputation, sometimes even more so than other Fenris class ships.


The Rules:
1. Be respectful in OOC, we are all people and deserve to treat each other as such
2. Please try your best to write two to three paragraphs per post
3. Reserve your spot in the OOC (character sheet will be there)
4. I understand life is busy, but please post once every two weeks at the least
5. If you're going to be away for a time, or off-line, let everyone know in the OOC so we can come up with a plan to keep your character from being left behind
6. Don't kill or seriously maim others' characters without talking to them first
7. Like the show 'Firefly', cussing and violence will be permitted, but explicit sexual nature should be left out (as a kindness more than a rule, if you could post in the OOC any trigger warnings to your post)

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Is this still a thing? Id like to submit a character.

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Either would be good! You could also combine some roles if you want. I suspect our group is going to be kind of little, so we can either combine roles or create npc's (and of course we'll talk more about this when the time comes).

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

I'll put something together today then, Thanks!
I'm thinking of going with a pilot or a gunman...anybody have a suggestion?

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Yes there are still openings!!

@Gamer_Templar, can't wait to see what you create!

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Scraping together some ideas for possibly an android character. Will try and get something up over the weekend.

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Is there still openings?

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Back from my vacation! @Belynta you character has been accepted

@Gamer_Templar I think an android character would be ok, even though it is space the Firefly universe doesn't actually have any aliens in it. It's never been explicitly said by Joss Whedon why, but some theories are that it's because the 'Verse takes place in one solar system of terra-formed planets and the ships don't have "speed of light" capabilities. Joss Whedon was also trying to create a show that was more "grounded" that acted more like a Western that just happened to be in space rather than a "true" sci-fi story or even a sci-fi western. Thank you for asking beforehand by the way, but yeah I'm going to veto aliens, but an android I think could exist in the 'Verse.

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Character submitted - Hope you like :)

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Had a look through recent RPs on the off chance, and this one has me intrigued. Would alien/android characters be allowed for this setting?

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Yay! I look forward to seeing what you create!

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

This looks awesome! I'll be submitting a character within the week!

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Oh yeah, like I said below, I'm going on vacation starting tomorrow so you'll have about two weeks to get it done =) Can't wait to see your character!

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

I'd like to submit a character, but it may take me a few days to get the sheet in. If that's okay?

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Character sheet:

Gender/preferred pronouns:
Role: (gunman, medic, pilot, etc.) I will allow more than one character to a role so feel free to have them be whatever
Preferred weapon: (I'll accept "none" as an answer)

Appearance: (please choose a non-illustrated picture and/or a detailed written description)

Personality: (be specific and detailed, at least two paragraphs, include likes/dislikes, fears, hopes, goals, etc.)

History: (again be specific and detailed, please include if your character has already joined the crew or not yet, if they are a part of the crew at the beginning please do two things the others who are as well so you can come up with a dynamic between the characters and 2. explain in this section why/how they joined the crew)

Note: a face claim is not needed, but if you want to add one feel free

Re: Outlaws Among the Stars

Just a warning, there will be a two week break starting March 6, a friend and I are going on a trip to Europe and I will have little to no access to the internet. If I can figure that out while over there I can have some activity for you and look over your characters, but otherwise the reservation period will be two weeks.

For the slots, it isn't a first come first served so feel free to submit a character. When I'm able to I will look over all characters and choose the best four. Best of luck to all of you and I can't wait to read what you create!
