Firefly: A Fistful of Credits
Campaign Themes & Threats
Theme: The Past, The Present, and The Future - The `Verse is a mixed bag of times, technologies, and cultures. Some things wouldn`t be out of place on Earth-That-Was, while some would seem fantastical to the people of that time. People can be having a drink in an old style wood made bar, in a dustbowl town, while playing holo-pool and swearing in fluent Chinese at a missed shot.
Theme: The Wild West - The Alliance would like the general populace to believe that following Unification peace fell upon the `Verse. The truth of the matter is though, out on the border and rim planets, every day is a struggle to survive. Criminals, corrupt authorities, reavers or just harsh planetary conditions, people do whatever they must to get by. This has allowed criminal organisations and black markets to thrive, and for some, crime is a necessity of life.
Threat: High Noon (There`s Trouble On The Horizon) - In the `Verse there are those that have it all and there are those that have nothing. The powerful will do anything to maintain their tenuous hold on power, while those with nothing constantly struggle for better, for basic rights and freedom. This constant struggle is erupting into conflicts, both big and small, across the `Verse.
