This Sunday I am going to a session of Firefly: Hurtlin’ Through the ‘Verse for a few friends, but the kicker is I’m not going to use the rules I created using the AGE system. I’m going to use one of my favorite systems: Savage Worlds.
I’ve created some Edges and Hindrances based off my Wrath of Zombie as well as inspired by two other Firefly Savage Worlds conversions (here and here). I also found a cool fan made generic Sci-Fi kit that has an AWESOME adventure generator (pages 39-41).
This is basically a one shot, with the hopeful possibility of playing more often (we’ll see). The first session is inspired by Brandon’s own Firefly game (to my players- don’t peak!).
Into the Black
I wanted the characters to be linked together somehow and have a quick story as to why (see the amazingly awesome picture below).
I rolled up who knew who through various jobs.
At the start of the game the players will roll a d6 to determine how long they have known one another:
1-2- Just met on a job (within a month)
3-4- Met months ago- roll 1d6
5-6- Met 1d3 years ago.
After that I thought it would be a great opportunity to utilize the Interlude rules from SWDX, pg 91. Give the players 5 minutes to come up with a story and BOOM! We know how/why they are together and we will be hurtlin’ through the ‘Verse!
What are Interludes? Well I’m so glad you asked! Check em out!
I will have a session recap for Firefly next week!
