Topic: A couple of RP queries

1. We probably ought to firmly establish what year this is. We were using 2519 back in the old country.
2. Do we have an official map?

Re: A couple of RP queries

I believe it's September 2519. Most of the sims I was in way back when were running in May 2519; the premis for the Jericho is that a few months have passed since then, and we echoed that premis on the Elemental, I think on the Atlantis, and on Cydonia (which has one or two characters continued from LOTW).

As for a map, I'm waiting on the official Whedon-endorsed one, which I've heard rumblings about but never seen in decent resolution.

Re: A couple of RP queries

I'm always struggling with the date as well. For some reason I cannot remember it. I've stumbled upon timelines with important events surrounding the Firefly universe on the internet a couple of times; maybe we should create a timeline on this forum as well? Could be part of a FAQ or something like that, although I would prefer to have it as a calendar. We could use it to indicate the current date in the sims, as well as add important events to the timeline (like the Independance War and things like that). We could then also add important events that have occured in our sims. Not that every little thing should go in there, but important stuff could.

That's a very sound idea. We could do with a general Firefly resource section here (a thought which has come up in other threads as well), and a timeline'd be an essential part of this, I think.

There's always http://www.mts.net/~arphaxad/firefly.html, which actually goes right back to America's 1776 Declaration of Independence all the way through to early August 2518. As such, if we are playing in September 2519, we're a little over a year on from the events depicted in Serenity.

Possibly we could do with firming up on all this, so I throw it open to everyone to contribute.

Re: A couple of RP queries

Thanks, Ash. That was the link I meant. It got lost somewhere on my computer (sometimes I'm convinced it relocates documents and links just to drive me crazy!), but now it's in my 'favorites' again.

Huzzah!

As for the self-relocating-documents, I used to have a computer which did that. My washing machine today refused to give me back my bath mat, too. And has anyone else's toaster maliciously kept toast down, burning it to cinders in an apparently self-destructive protest against machine slavery? I think the machines are have begun their resistance...

Have you seen the (I think Michael McIntyre sketch) about toasters having a large 'raw' and a large 'burnt' and an itty-bitty wafer thin setting of 'just about right' in the middle.  The settings are made by the same people who do the temperature settings on showers.
