Registering for a Game

The Madness Facebook calendars does not reserve your spot. Please do the following:

  1. Register on the Meetup.com group for each specific game event
  2. Fill out our game survey which gives me some additional information.

Initially ALL players are put on a waiting list. About a week before the game I email players to confirm availability and within 48 hours update the group with the final roster. Players are given precedence based on past attendance, filling out the survey and related factors. It pays to be on our waiting list — we will contact you when a spot opens up. :-)

Email Stan Shinn (stan@dfwroleplayers.com) with any questions.

Game Structure

We target each 4 hour session to be ‘episodic’ with a start and end (sort of like a TV series) to accommodate  those who miss a game or join the campaign mid-way.

 


Current Campaign: Firefly / Serenity (Savage Worlds Rules)

Do you have what it takes to survive in the savage worlds of the ‘Verse? Our game will be in the Firefly / Serenity setting using homebrew rules and original, non-canon characters (though Mal and the gang will have a tie-in — you’ll see). Join us in our journey into the Black.

Cortex Setting & Savage Worlds Rules

No advance rules knowledge needed — I’ll teach you all you need to know (and it’s pretty easy to pick up).

We’re using the setting material from the out-of-print Serenity (Cortex rules) RPG and using Savage Worlds for the rules mechanics.

Character Creation

New players will do character creation (using semi-pregen characters which you can tweak in game or after game) at your first session. Email the GM your character concept prior to attending the game if your are able to make sure it will work with our current crew. GM has final say on your archetype and concept as we need to make sure it fits the genre and meshes  will with the crew roster.

GM Style

Stan Shinn is the gamemaster for most games. See Stan’s GM profile to see what kind of game he runs. Want to co-GM? Attend a few games and chat with Stan.

    I’m really excited about this. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for several years now. Plus, I call captain.
