Margaret Weis Productions secured the Firefly RPG license. They originally started Serenity using the Cortexsystem and they're not sure if they're going to use Action Roleplaying like they do with Leverage or use some of the older classic Cortex mechanics. Check out the MWP site and give input on their forum. :)

For any of you out there with ideas or old projects (Treybor/Yellowjacket)they have a section for Firefly now on the Margaret Weis Productions Forum. It only has a couple of postings but would love to build interest and get some creative juices flowing while waiting for the official stuff. I already posted a link to Treybor's adventures and his artwork and Yellowjackets Verse in Numbers.

Here's one of the made up character type you can use. Not crazy about the artwork but enjoyed the GenCon book.

Over at [url] http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=116 [/url] you can find how to make your crew and three adventures. The core book is suppose to be out by February 2014.

Firefly Echoes of War: Serenity Crew

Description: The War between the Alliance and the Independents is a sore subject for a lot of folks, some more than others. Take Captain Malcolm Reynolds for example. Now here’s a guy who fought in the Battle of Serenity Valley and laid down arms in front of his enemy. That kind of experience changes a man—and it’ll change you, too.

Serenity Crew allows you to spend your days playing Mal, Zoe, Wash, Kaylee, Inara, Jayne, Simon, Book, or River. If you’re the type that wants to try something new, take a gander at the twelve archetypes we’re offering you, too. If the math’s right, that’s twenty-one different options for you to play a character in the ‘Verse.

Serenity Crew is part of the Echoes of War role-playing adventure series, which is centered on a common theme: the Unification War. All characters and archetypes in this release employ the Cortex Plus system. The Serenity Crew is compatible with the Echoes of War adventures and all other releases in the Firefly Role-Playing Game line, which are all sold separately. The Firefly Role-Playing Game is based on the hit television series by Fox.



Firefly Echoes of War: Wedding Planners Cortex Plus

Description: During the War, some folks chose a side and others pitted the Alliance and the Independents against each other for fun and profit. Well, mostly profit. Enter Templeton Steele, a powerful weapons designer whose bride-to-be is none other than the lovely Liliana Fairchild. Now, on account of these two lovebirds getting hitched, you and your crew are hired to transport Lilly to a fancy ship called the Rim’s Dream. Sounds easy enough, right? Unite the happy couple and they’ll get paid? Only thing is, this Princess ain’t exactly happy about the wedding. The more you find out, the worse this job gets – and the less chance you have of getting paid.

Wedding Planners is presented by Margaret Weis with art by Kurt Komoda. This Episode is part of the Echoes of War role-playing adventure series, which is centered on a common theme: the Unification War. Echoes of War adventures are compatible with the Firefly Role-Playing Game and all subsequent releases.


Firefly Echoes of War: Shooting Fish

Description: The War may be over, but there’re still plenty of bad people looking to do bad things, and they don’t seem to need war as an excuse to come after their fellow man neither. Some folk will happily turn out a bunch of orphans to make themselves a few coins. Buzzard Lake is one such fella, but like all men he’s got a weakness. He don’t like to lose. That’s where you and your crew come in. Lake needs to learn what second place feels like, and you’re gonna to teach him. You might even save some orphans in the bargain if he don’t kill you first.

Shooting Fish is presented by Andrew Peregrine with illustrations by Jennifer Rodgers. This Episode is part of the Echoes of War role-playing adventure series, which is centered on a common theme: the Unification War. Echoes of War adventures are compatible with the Firefly Role-Playing Game and all subsequent releases. Shooting Fish requires the Serenity Crew, which is sold separately. The Firefly Role-Playing Game is based on the hit television series by Fox.

And the newest adventure:

Firefly Echoes of War: Friends in Low Places

Description: Sometimes meeting up with old friends in Serenity View is cause for celebration, but not this time. Over drinks, you and your Crew discover that Monty's new wife Daisy has gone missing. Worse, your pal thinks that Virgil Morningstar, a Guild trader with a heap of Alliance connections, had something to do with her disappearance. By the time you find out Daisy ain't the only one who's vanished, you and your Crew'll be neck-deep in trouble and hard-pressed to find your way out of it. Thing is, if you do unravel this little mystery, you'll claim a big reward and be heroes to boot.

Friends in Low Places is part of the ECHOES OF WAR roleplaying adventure series, which is centered on a common theme: the Unification War. ECHOES OF WAR adventures include basic rules to get you started employing the Cortex Plus game system. Main characters are found in Serenity Crew, which is available separately. All releases in the ECHOES OF WAR line are compatible with the upcoming FIREFLY ROLE-PLAYING GAME, which is based on the television series by Joss Whedon.

Firefly Echoes of War: Freedom Flyer for $4.99

Description:

Folk do what they can to scratch out a living in the ’Verse. Seems like some folk push their luck to scrape by in these tough times. Maggie Miller's bad history and rotten luck are keeping her from achievin’ her dreams. She wants to get out of the Georgia System to make a fresh start out on the Rim, but she needs three things to do it: a hidden pile of cash, a ship she’s hidden with an old flame, Hollis Mason, and enough leftover credits to wipe Ma Millers’s medical bills clean before she goes. The Crew will have to dig for treasure, outwit a wily Alliance officer, and steal a ship hidden in orbit to help Maggie safely on her way. Trouble is, there’s a kind of hitch: Hush Jackson, a tough-as-nails bounty hunter who’s hopin’ to cash in on Maggie’s head. Will the Crew turn Maggie over for the bounty? Or, will they help Maggie out and pray there is enough cash left over to cover their costs?

Monica Valentinelli posted on her blog that Echoes of War: Bucking the Tiger – Next adventure in the hopper. We’re potentially looking at a May release for this one. Things Don’t Go Smooth – Planning a GenCon release for this one. Echoes of War: Volume 1 – Collects the first four Echoes of War releases into a print edition. Also looking at a GenCon release.

Over at drivethrurpg.com they have Firefly Echoes of War: Bucking the Tiger for $4.99
Description: Out in the black, a friend who pays back what they owe is as rare as a fresh strawberry. The Crew arrives on Renao just in time to witness the life drain out of Annie Foy’s body before she could settle up her debt. Sheriff Leonard Cao suspects the murderer is taking part in a high-stakes game of cards at the Shenandoah Rush casino and needs the Crew’s help to crack the case. Was it Sharklip Shen, the Triad gangster who controls the casino? Was Big Cassie Sagira, the Companion with a secret, responsible? Butch Guying, a known killer and Browncoat raider? Or perhaps Annie ran afoul of the mysterious Alliance officer known only as The Colonel?

Bucking The Tiger is part of the ECHOES OF WAR roleplaying adventure series, which is centered on a common theme: the Unification War. ECHOES OF WAR adventures include basic rules to get you started employing the Cortex Plus game system. Main characters are found in Serenity Crew, which is available separately. For the ability to create custom characters, please check out the FIREFLY ROLE-PLAYING GAME core book. All releases in the ECHOES OF WAR line are compatible with the FIREFLY ROLE-PLAYING GAME, which is based on the television series by Joss Whedon.
