For easy reference purposes, I'll also regularly update this thread here as well. Last updated 7/18/14

Here's the current estimated game timeline -- note that dates for all fics not yet posted are estimated dates, and thus subject to change!

2514.March 18: The Jin-Dui finds her crew… when the hiring line waiting for interviews outside of the ship come unders an assaulted by an Foxbat fighter (assumed to have been hired by local mob boss Darius) (http://firefly.wikia.com/wiki/Foxbat-cl ... ter/Bomber) The ship takes to the air and flees with a motley assortment of applicants board, only narrowly missing being destroyed. Once in orbit, a course is set for Persephone, in order to deliver the partial cargo which Van Hooven has already stowed aboard. (Story: Launch Point) Crew begin to sort out the situation... (Story: Bon Voyage ) (Ron WIP: untitled)

2514.April 8: The Jin Dui arrives at Persephone. Her cargo is sold to the business contacts provided by Van Hooven; a mysterious crate is also delivered to a local ally who comes calling. The ship searches for a cargo for the intended port of Greenleaf. (Whit WIP: Sihnon Standard Time)

2514.April 9: The Jin Dui departs for Greenleaf, after 24 hours at port

2514.April 13: The Jin Dui arrives on Greenleaf, making port on Raikiura Island and being hosted by a luau-style “welcome home”party by Hoss’s extended family. Important NPCs introduced will include Grandmama Dowager, and Primrose "Rosie" Wasikowska, the girl Cooper smuggled away from Darius back on Deadwood. Cooper intends to spend a week downworld, completing additional ship repairs and doing some local harvesting/gathering -- basically, think working vacation for the crew. A day at the beach is planned by Hoss for the day before departure, including a crab boil and surfing. Cargo arrangements are made to take on an assortment of fresh, canned and dried agricultural goods; the crew catch Rosie attempting to stowaway before they leave. (Whit WIP: untitled)

2514.April 21: (early morning) The Jin Dui departs from Greenleaf after a week onworld. She is enroute to Beggar’s Tin, one of the moons of Silverhold, which is a 2½ day trip, with a hold full of agricultural goods.

2514.May 2: The Jin Dui arrives on Santo, delivering her passengers and cargo safely. Estimated 3 day layover on Santo as the ship arranges to take on a cargo of furniture downsized from a Santo resort, being purchased by a Beylix millionaire to furnish his new mansion.

2514.June 29: The Jin Dui arrives on Beylix. Uncle Slim is aghast at the double cross, and has word on the “official” end of the Lucky Day. Cooper will want to invest in more surplus parts and tools -- talking pioneering basics, the sorts of things settlers on the Rim may be in sore need of. Likewise, wants to collect as much surplus medical materials as possible. Her intention is to take their chances on a tour of the rim worlds, putting out their shingle as a flying general store / medical clinic / veterinary clinic / Abby putting out her shingle as a civil law notary.
