Are you a Browncoat?  Check.

Well, then, you love Firefly and Serenity? Check.

Do you have a crappy town where you're a hero? ...No.

Well, now you can!

Quantum Mechanix (QMx) is sponsoring the "Name the Crappy Town Where You’re a Hero" charity auction. Starting on April 20th, 50 town names will be auctioned via eBay with all proceeds supporting Equality Now. If you win an auction, your name will be submitted, and pending studio approval, will be used in the upcoming official Atlas of the 'Verse, Volume One: The Trader's Guild Guide to the New Canaan Run made by our favorite mild-manner graphic designer, Ben Mund.

Ready to start naming? Here are some guidelines:

  • Town name should be 15 characters or less, not including punctuation or spaces.
  • No curse words, please.
  • Try to avoid obviously jokey or pop-reference names, such as "Bobsville" or "Frakkintown".

Available planets and towns include Ariel, Higgins’ Moon and Sihnon.

The auctions are being run by the Austin Browncoats in support of 2009’s Can’t Stop The Serenity. Visit www.cantstoptheserenity.com to find a screening near you! To find out more about Equality Now, visit http://equalitynow.org. For more information, visit www.quantummechanix.com.
