Default [OOC] Keeping in the Black

This is a space adventure game set in Joss Whedon's Firefly 'verse. The players will form a crew for their ship and take odd jobs to keep themselves going. Possibly very odd. The flavor will be gritty--normal people trying to survive without losing their dreams.

This campaign has a full crew. If you're interested in buying a passenger ticket or shipping some freight please post in the OOC thread.

Rules will be GURPS 4e supplemented by GURPS Traveller: Interstellar Wars for spaceship and gear stats when necessary. This is not a Traveller game. Ships move at the speed of plot, the story will be episodic, and profits are "big," "enough," or "taking a bath." Players won't need anything other than GURPS Lite to play unless they want to do something fancy. Characters are limited to 150 points with 60 points of disadvantages. Unspent points can be used in play as cinematic points. The setting is mostly TL9. Cinematic traits are generally off-limits (but if you can point to an example in the show you can ask).

(obsolete info)
Spoiler:

Code:
Username	PC Name			role		color

Dibs on the ships engineer slot! She's poor, so not a ship buyer. But she'll work cheap cause she's in love with the ship.

Interested and more than willing to play.

I'm placing dibs on medic/military surgeon , who is currently freelancing.

I may be interested. I was thinking of a hard nosed ex-military (Brown shirt) Ground pounder. He will be the Jayne type.

Is it 55 disadvantages and 5 quirks or 60 disadvantages and 5 quirks?

I'm trying to decide between a pilot character or the captain.

Ok, I'm going with an experienced leader type. If he doesn't become the captain he'll probably be first mate or quartermaster or something like that.

How about being a capt'n, Dorin? :D

And Skull, I believe he meant 55+5 by that. If it isn't written, then the whole number usually includes quirks in it.

It just depends on how things go in the IC thread.
