To all new players: Welcome!

Serenity is on Monday at 7:30 cst. We are playing as soon as we have players who are ready and pick a time.
To play you’ll need to sign up for these 4 services (all free):
1. Discord. We use voice comms to play and they are required.
2. Roll20. After signup join the campaign by clicking the SERENITY CAMPAIGN INVITE LINK
3. Sign up for a free account at (so you can access all the content): Then send me the email you signed up with so I can give you access.
4. Join the campaign on (right here in fact) where the campaign info is, offline RP happens, the calendar and adventure logs are, etc then send me your nickname or email you signed up with. Here’s a link for your friends since you’re already here: SERENITY, Big Damn Heroes"

This may seem like a lot of work but it keeps the campaign data safe from trolls, which has been an issue in the past. The accounts makes all the links on work. OP is the storehouse of the information that will start getting dumped your direction and gives a place for offline roleplay and adventure logs and a community calendar. Finally, when needed, Roll20 is our virtual tabletop to roll dice, get fighty, and just generally be Big Damn Heroes.

Now, let’s have some fun! Thanks for joining!


BUILD YOURSELF A SHINY CHARACTER: We use the Serenity RPG system and the books describe how to make your character – sorta. They were more interested in their writing and the flavor of the manual than in actually explaining things so the information is pretty scattered. There is a word doc here called Serenity Character Building Rules that condenses it all for you. Handy, right? You’ll need your character to join the crew of the Joint Custody!


In that same area there’s the Character Building spreadsheet called Serenity Character Building Spreadsheet) that has the rules baked in and does the heavy lifting for your character building chores. It doesn’t work in the viewer it pops up in, so download it and run it and it will work just fine! Don’t use it if you don’t want to, but prepare to do some math.

There’s a tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet that says Equipment (3 guesses what you’ll find there). Using these tools, you can build your very own Greenhorn character that will someday (hopefully) grow up to be a Big Damn Hero!
