Title: [Dust Devils] Firefly setting?
Post by: TheLHF on December 04, 2007, 08:04:42 PM
I just got my hands on Dust Devils (thanks to Games of Berkeley) and it's great. I'm itching to run it.

I have a vague memory of a down loadable chapter with rules for playing a Firefly like setting. I may be dreaming, especially because my searching turned up nothing. Is this still around? Was it ever around?

Hi, Victor. It was never around. It's still on my back burner. I have a fabulous piece of artwork for "Star Dusters." Some day, I'll get around to creating the thing, but I have not announced when.

Awesome, thanks for the response. I'll just have to wing it on my own if I decide to play Fir- *ahem* I mean Star Dusters.

Great game, by the way!

I wrote a comment to Matt Snyder about 'Stardusters' some time ago, and he was kind enough to respond to me in e-mail with the following quick-and-dirty 'Firefly' emulation, to use while we're waiting:

In the mean time, let me recommend something:
Use Dust Devils mostly "as is." Except, sneak in the "Loyalties" rules from Deathwish and call 'em "Crew."

So, now you're loyal specifically to fellow crewmates on the ship, a la Serenity.

I may add a couple other details between now and Stardusters release, but that really should make it Shiny.

I hope this helps.
