I might go more Spain than Spanish California, but I do like this submission. The technobabble at the front is a bit of a stumbler, but nothing serious. Someone could write a sub on the process of terraforming, caeliforming, etc. Back on topic, I like this world because it offers something other than the dusty marginally habitable single biome planet.

Just noticed this huge entry... so let me reply

Did you have an idea regarding a charismatic figure or leader of this planet?

No. It is up to what the GM needs for this planet. I would think there is a charismatic leader or two among the elder council, but that would just be me.

How about the history of the planet?
Hmmm. Colonists were dropped off. They built it up. Really, that is as much history as most Firefly planets have.


Who is that 0.01% of the population?
Other odds and ends of the Firefly Universe. A few souls who lost their ride home. A few chinese that are trying to make a living. A few others who came here for possible jobs.

Does the alliance recruit from or tax this planet?
Yes.

What if some valuable mineral was discovered on the planet? Do you think the populace would seek to exploit the wealth or avoid it?
They would exploit it. It would make their world as wealthy as Nob or one of the central worlds.

Is charity still one of the virtues upheld by this faith?
I do not see why it wouldn't be.

The strict and potentially oppressive religious setting has its place in any game that champions the roving adventurer. I just didn't think this setting or its presentation did a lot improve on this Utah in space idea. But assuming you are GM who wants random setting this one gives just enough details to be save you some time, and it is a familiar enough idea to most western fanboys that it doesn't require a lot of explaining. It wouldn't have taken much to push this into a really interesting idea.

Fair enough. This is a stub for a reason. It is an organizational point. Most people actually don't know much about Utah, so this is their starting point.

Every GM is going to use this planet for different effects in their game. While it was "okay" in my campaign, another Serenity GM of my aquaintance turned into a religious fascist society, just short of "The Will of Landru ( http://www.startrek.com/database_article/landru ). It is what your group is going to be comfortable with.


What if this use to be a Casino planet but got reformed. So you got a lot of reformed whores and gunmen hanging around the church socials?
Never happened in Los Vegas, but it is an intersting idea.

What if there are still old prospectors out in the hills who hate this town and church crap and they make up sort of shadow society?
That is interesting, but the old prospectors would not have enough wealth or population to deal with the town folk.

What if one of the old Primus rewrote parts of the bible and then rather deny him and change there way of life they some start worshiping him?
You have been reading wayyy to much "Dogs in the Vineyards", but it is possible. Again, that would be a plot the GM would add to the setting, rather than something I would list as "This is cannon for the world". Go to Comment

Well, I guess that is what the Orange Book is. I had to go do some referencing and it seems to have a spiritual cousin in the Orange Catholic Bible from the Dune mythos. Go to Comment

Great world - it fits in with the 'canon' worlds quite well - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Firefly_planets_and_moons

An interesting planet, and one sure to get virtually any player characters into deep trouble on sooner or later. A few plot hooks could round out the setting and details on some of the more notable personalities in town. 



I also liek the flexibility of the premise, and how easy it can be for GM's to take the concept and use it in a different setting with minimal adjustment.

You are basically looking at a "boom town" with two gold rushes going. Lots of change. Lots of Crime. Lots of opportunities. You are looking at social and industrial intrigue (which will get you dead just as easy as a battle). So yes things are maginally civilized.

What kind of drama are you looking for? Open warfare? Giant Monsters? Disasters destroying the planet (we already did that once in this system)? Go to Comment

Mandan was mentioned but never named. As per the linking submission, all the submissions are mine, all the scroll are canon or near canon. Go to Comment

Reading through this, I get a bit more feel for Mandan than some of the other worlds. Is Mandan cannon for the location of the start of the war? (Again, I must profess my ignorance of things Firefly) Go to Comment

Silver is moderately useful as both an industrial and monetary element. It is also the most frequent "strike" in the Old West. Go to Comment

Silver is not that great of a commodity here. It is valuable, but like a diamond mind. I didn't use gold because it was cliche, silver is easy to mine, and nobody like a Chromium Rush.

This all just happened. Like in the last year or two. Nobody in The Alliance has yet to figure out there is a problem here. (Lord knows how long it took the Feds to realize the issues in Los Vegas).

The amount of wealth available here went off the charts.

What you have now is wealth, lots of it. So where you have some "shady figures" in the vice/ recreation trade supplying things that were not perfectly legal, now they have money, much more money, and much more power.

And people who like power, will often take steps to get more. Who needs the Alliance to drop down on a podunk little town/ planet, when the local shadowy figures and business men will be intriguing against each other.. doing shadowy things (which the PCs would be hired)... and doing a bit of killing ("We don't know where he went....).

In a decade or three, the Alliance will step in here and oppose order. Yet we all know how effective that is in stopping organized crime. Go to Comment

An interesting idea, a gambline liesure planet. The silver rush seems shoe-horned into it, and in Firefly just how valuable is silver? Back when teh silver rushes hit the US, gold and silver werent that far apart in price. All in all, not bad, but a abit too heavy on the Western part of the Space-Western Go to Comment
