The Good, The Bad, and The Shiny

The Good, the Bad, and the Shiny is a game set in the world of the science-fiction show Firefly. The events of our game take place prior to the events of the show, and in fact prior to the events of the Unification War. We use the cortex game system as found in the Serenity Role-Playing Game book, not the cortex plus system found in the Firefly RPG book. Confused? Yeah, so are we. Matt serves as our GM for this game.

This campaign is unique among LTM Gaming campaigns in that much of the knowledge of events in the game may be secret. There will be information secret from each player as well as information that is secret from the listener until such time as Matt deems it appropriate to reveal. Only he holds all of the cards.

Our plucky characters are:

  • Karyn Vine, a ridiculously attractive reporter, played by Paul.
  • Otter Johns, the sheriff of the backwater town Sukkum on Shadow, played by TJ.
  • Jessup “JB” Barrel, an athletic pilot serving on the interplanetary police force, played by Brian.
  • Detective Wallace McNamara, the second in command of the Jessica Fletcher, an InterPol investigative cruiser, played by Steve.
