Firefly will be played using the Serenity RPG system
that is designed and published by Margaret Weis Publications. The following pages
give a brief summary of the system used to create characters and for task resolution.
In Serenity RPG the players play members of the crew of a ship which also is assigned a character sheet.
The game uses a full range of dice including d2, d4, d6, d8, d10 and d12. Characters assign a dice type to each of six statistics (Agility, Strength, Vitality, Intelligence, Willpower and Alertness). The higher the dice type the better chance of rolling well for skills that deal with that attribute. Skills are similarly assigned a dice type and when rolling to see if you succeed at a skill you roll the statistic and skill dice against a target number for the level of difficulty of the action you are attempting.
