"After the Earth was used up, we found a new solar system and hundreds of new Earths were terraformed and colonized. The Central Planets formed the Alliance and decided all the planets had to join under their rule.
There was some disagreement on that point.
After the war, many of the Independents who had fought and lost, drifted to the edges of the system far from Alliance control. Out here, people struggle to get by with the most basic technologies. A ship would bring you work. A gun would help you keep it. A captain's goal was simple: Find a crew, find a job. Keep flying."
Welcome to FireflyMUX! When "Firefly" first aired in 2002, Joss Whedon painted a gritty, realistic sci-fi world based in the 26th century - a rich, colourful and diverse civilization five hundred years in the future where cultures collide and blend seamlessly. With the intriguing genre of "space western" tied to its name, it brings up combined images of spaceships and horses, high technology and the old frontier, corrupt government and gunfights. Then, when "Serenity" hit the big screen this fall, we were given more insight, more adventure, and more danger. But overall, it's all about people ... their freedom and survival, their very human triumphs and losses. Today, this world provides us with a unique opportunity for roleplay. It provides us with FireflyMUX.
This is the LiveJournal community for FireflyMUX -- a place for players to come together OOC and talk about anything related to the MUX. OOC announcements may be posted here (as well as on the game) from time to time, as well as fun things or projects. Let us know if you've created a character journal, if you're really excited over a particular scene, or if you've found a perfect themesong.
The only rules are: be respectful and keep on topic (about FireflyMUX ... or Firefly and Serenity, at least ;).
