Serenity RPG Wins Gamer's Choice for Best Role Playing Game of the Year. The fans have spoken! The Serenity Role Playing Game is the Gamer's Choice for Best RPG of the year in the 2006 Origins Awards.

Jamie Chambers accepted the award on behalf of Margaret Weis Productions and the entire design team. He thanks Joss Whedon for creating a fantastic setting and an amazing crew, Margaret Weis for support and trust, and Renae Chambers for being the greatest wife in this 'Verse or any other. Of course, he also thanks Browncoats everywhere for supporting the game and casting their votes!

I can imagine. Kaylee attacks the reaver with her +2 spanner wrench. Tee hee!

Actually, having just gotten "back into" RPG's with my kids (dusting off my 25-year old D&D manuals) I might have to check this out.
Thanks also to Susan Tomb (a.k.a. "11th Hour") for her hard work on the cover and interior design! The book wouldn't be nearly as shiny without her!
I just picked up the book this weekend. I can't wait to get a game together. And my husband got a huge kick out of the section of Chinese phrases.

I also really loved the disclaimer at the bottom of River's stats!
The book is gorgeous, second only (in my opinion) to Eden Studio's Buffy and Angel RPGs which are just amazing.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the system. I am a very dice light type of gamer and have never really cared for the D20 system. I'm more for the role playing than the roll playing. But any good GM can fix this problem.

All in all, it's a great product though and will get you on the right track to start up your own crew. :)
kbmartinez ~ Thank you for the kind words regarding the Serenity Role Playing Game. Jamie and I combined forces, at great distances from each other (Wisconsin and California, thank you AIM!), to assemble the book. I designed the cover, double page graphic art design, all the chapter lead and character pages, selected font styles and a color scheme. While Jamie had the monumental task of formatting the entire body of the book. He organized and laid out an amazing amount of charts, info, photos, stories, rules, stats, etc. The book is 222 pages long. That's a big job, and very detail intensive. Oh yeah, he wrote it too... heh...

Btw, if it helps at all, the Serenity RPG doesn't use the D20 system. Jamie designed a different system because he doesn't like D20 either!

Wishing you and your friends many happy hours of Serenity RPG gaming goodness!
11th Hour: Oh, I'm sorry about D20 comments, my bad. It had a lot of different dice and it was Saturday night of a con after me running 3 Buffy/Angel games all weekend -- my brain was fried!

You guys worked on it? That's so cool! I run gaming convetions out on the East Coast (DEXCON and DREAMTION). We'd love to get you out next year to DEXCON 10 in July. :)
