This is a massive update! Roughly 30 pages of new information! I knew this was an ambitious project when I first started out, but man has it really grown into something awesome. A big thanks to everyone for the encouragement and feedback.
I was going to wait to release this a little bit after Dragon Age 2 box set, but just found out that date is looking to be May sometime.. I decided I didn’t want to wait that long (especially since I’ve got other Firefly projects for this in the works AND I’m sure there will be more changes to do when it finally does get released) so here it is.
Here is a list of all that has been updated/changed/added:
Added Organizations and adversaries to Firefly: Blue Sun, Alliance, Companion Guild, etc.
