Firefly: The 'Verse (Fan Set)

Rate this Entry
There are several OBVIOUS omissions from the IP suite DiceMasters employs. Marvel makes me want Capcom and Nintendo. TMNT makes me want GI Joe and Transformers. D&D makes Lord of the Rings seem like a logical extension...

This post isn't about those.

Still reeling years after the untimely (and equally unjust) cancellation of Joss Whedon's Firefly TV series, DiceMasters came along to fill part of the void in my geek heart. After becoming aware of the card generator provided by the good folks over at retrobox, I knew what my contribution to the Browncoat community would be.

I could have started with a Team Pack format, but the most surprising element in the development process was just how easy it was for theme to influence character and action abilities. I have a new found appreciation for the 1-season series as I had to trim down the character and action list. Perhaps I'll take the remainder and do an OP kit or a Team Pack in the future. It would be fun to use some of the Dark Horse Comics art or even some of the fan art out there.

The difficult part was pairing the cards up with existing die iconography so that Firefly: The 'Verse can be played without proxy dice.
I used every keyword in the game (through GOTG) and I gotta say, Heroic was worth the wait! I would love to see some of the other abilities I made up make their way into future sets--even if they aren't on such deserving subject matter .

A big thanks to @DiceDiceKitty for posting her fan-made My Lil' Pony set and to PaulK for his constant vigilance over the DiceMaster community here and on BGG.

Keep Flyin...

    Awesome job! Great use of the existing dice. Each of them makes so much sense!

    Thanks...I'm serious about playing this set and have some Firefly fans I think this might gateway into DiceMasters so the dice had to work. I wonder what a full set of dice would cost buying on CoolStuff...might have to follow-up with a post about that.

    There is a correction to the C Atherton Subtitle and the C Malcolm ability. The correct version of these cards are in the albums here on thereservepool.
