OOC Thread

The usual OOC thread.

Visitors welcome, wipe your feet and no cursin' in English mor'n PG-13.



Admin gods - please turn off the "autocorrect" function in the title blocks, I can't write "OOC" without it coming out "Ooc."

Surely that is something on your end, Wired?

Edit: Oh, wow, you're right. That doesn't make any sense, something must have changed somewhere.

We'll take this to the admin cave and sort it out.

Admin cave... sounds like a fire, meat roasted on a stick, lots of scratching in... places, and communication via "Agha... Ugh... Buggh", something like that.

Hmmm... I was imaging something more along the lines of neat gadgets and maybe a batmobile or two.

I used to call it the treehouse, but then the secret forum for LoL became the treehouse. The official title is "The Black Box", but we don't use that.

And it's more like Tracey Island. The moral here is that this is an OOC thread for a game I don't play in, so I should go and sort this problem rather than spreading secrets about the magical lives of Team Admin.

This does not need to be fixed/changed. Let me explain:

You're using a title which consists of only capital letters. This triggers the "Prevent shouting in threadtitles" feature.
Should you have used "OOC Thread" as the title, no changing would've occured.

Damn, this is more like a government all the time. "Let me explain why this if for your own good." Sigh.

Not here. There.

No, seriously, we had quite some fun with that exact typo in my RL gaming group (which is now sadly restricted to mostly PbP gaming). Hilarious, really.

No threats anywhere. Just silliness.

Okay, I'm going to put a shout out here. There was a Serenity game here previously that tanked before it really got off the ground with me, Wired, Lyn, Left Handed Bandit, Lando the Archmagi, and more in it.

In the game I played a character named Earl Henry a lovable runaway slave with a string of bad luck. I bring this up, because I'd like to revive him for this game. Unfortunately, like a dumbass, I forgot to back up my character creation thread and so Earl is currently lost to the sands of time and inactive forum deletion.

Does anyone remember the name of the GM and the forum? Does anyone know if it's possible for admins to retrieve deleted character information? Or is Earl going to drown in the depths of obscurity forever?

By the way, start with Greenhorn-level (42-point) characters. That doesn't need to imply anything really other than the number of points you have to spend. Grizzled old coots welcome to apply.

I'm debating Agnes (and unlike some people, I keep backups), the grumpy old pilot lady, or a totally different character. Haven't decided yet. Vague idea of other peoples' concepts may or may not help, depending on how Wired's running this. Like, are you going for a typical ship-crew scenario or something else?

I think as I have not done enough of the "typical" Serenity, we'd start with the standard ship/crew/cast of rogues and misfits. I was thinking about supplying an NPC captain at the very start with the intention of killing him/her off pretty quick and leaving the PCs in control, but LHB will probably want to design the ship with input.

So ATM we have one pilot (nothing says you can't have two) and a gentle giant if Trey goes with Earl. Some roles you might want to think about: medic, swindler/hustler, covert/cat burglar, shepherd/guru/mystic/monk, companion or wannabee, mechanic, martial artist, gunfighter, merc, scientist, hacker, merchant, come up with some more.

We could always have a crossover game...

Okay, so David Zhan is out of the picture, since we have a pair of pilots already. Let me see what I can come up with for a medic; I have a couple ideas.

And, yes, I would love to put a ship together, if we decide we want to do something other than a Firefly transport (which I would be more than willing to fly in, since none of my games...neither the aborted online games nor my local one...were in Fireflies).

Anyway, I guess the first question is, do we want to run a Firefly, or go with a custom design?
