This year has flown by so gorram fast. The holidays are on us and I’m so thankful for the crew I have that gets bigger every day. We are up over 125 members now and I’m looking forward to celebrating with everyone.
Speaking of celebrating! Thank you to everyone who came out to help me celebrate my birthday yesterday. I got the most wonderful surprises from my Browncoats…
Our family is expanding and it makes me want to do so much more in the coming year.
The first of the prompts for our fan fiction crew zine will begin in December. I’ll be posting a prompt December 1st with replies due by the 15th. The zine will get released into the wild by the end of the month and the next prompt posted on the 1st. Your Captain will give you a scenario and you’ll respond to it in character as your persona on the crew.
If you want to play but you’re not up to writing and just want to give us a challenge, feel free to email me if you’d like to suggest a storyline or just misbehave and throw something at the crew to gum up the works and put us through our paces!
And keep reading, because the storylines here will have farther reaching effects…
BROWNCOAT BÁI XIÀNG PARTY
Calling all Browncoats: Ready for a little holiday shindig? It’s our 2nd Annual Browncoat Bài Xiáng Party! Bring your families and friends for a little White Elephant fun. I’m working on a location in either Richmond or Lexington so it’s central for most people. Last year’s was at Golden Corral in Richmond, this year I’m hoping to make it a casual potluck and white elephant exchange with some Firefly-themed holiday goodies for everyone. Feel free to comment with suggestions on dates and locations. Looking forward to seeing you all!
Looking into using online tech to start a game for us once a week. Nowhere near ready yet so be patient. The Firefly board game is awesome, BUT I’m hoping to snag some of the tabletop game books and run us through scenarios online through Roll20 as a tie-in with our zine. The books are on my wishlist and I’m studying up on the tech. If it is something you’d be interested in joining in on, though, let me know (comment below or email me). When I do this it will be a weeknight – probably a Tuesday or Wednesday night as our family’s regular DND game here is Thursday nights. Weigh in on it and let me know what you think! I’m planning to broadcast it via Twitch.
