There is a Firefly MMO in the works, but if you just can't wait to get your Malcolm Reynolds on (in a completely platonic way, of course), then you can try your hand at the official pen-and-paper role-playing game, which came out this week.
Opportunities to engage in space-bound hijinks in the same vein as Joss Whedon's short-lived cult classic are far and few between, so the release of the RPG rulebook is delicious news... even if I won't have a chance to play it in the near future. Developed by Margaret Weis Productions, the game is based on the company's own "Cortex Plus" role-playing system, which relies on rolls using four-sided through to 12-sided dice.
The publisher's announcement post states it's only available in PDF form currently, but the print edition is with printers and should be out from mid-April.
If you'd like to grab the paid-for PDF, you can hit up Margaret Weis Productions directly. It's $US49.99, which I'd prefer to spend on a printed copy. But then, I'm not madly desperate.
Not yet, anyway.
