Firefly - Friends in Low Places

Today, the latest Echoes of War adventure in the Firefly universe goes live. Friends In Low Places puts the Crew in a bad place between a low down dirty trader and an Alliance officer trying to bring him to justice. Monica Valentinelli did a great job pulling together a plot driven by some hard choices, and Mark Diaz Truman helped me sharpen the mechanics to razor deadliness. I go into fiurther detail after the jump, which involve spoilers.

My favorite thing about the adventure is the Timed Action at the end, which frames a big showdown between the two sides as a race against reinforcements.  Also, turning Serenity View into a tourist trap was just a wicked twist from Monica's imagination.
