Serenity ship papers

Postby F-N-S » Mon Jun 01, 2009 1:51 pm

Here are the two versions of Serenity ship papers I got.

The first is the Hero of Canton version that was sold on propcircle a long time ago. It only has one page.

The second is the official licensed version from QMX. Multiple very well made pages, documents, money and other things ship papers should include.

You know the original source of the documents was a photograph taken against my wishes at the X-wing fundraiser in Honiton, Devon.

Whoever made these did a pretty good job....

If you mean the QMX set, that would most likely be Whitefall.

Didn't know it was against your wishes though...

Whitefall didn't take the picture. It was a fan, who then posted it all over the internet, along with the Ariel ID pics. Copies were on Ebay the next day.

Well that's the double edged sword, innit?

It's why I loathe buying anything on ebay that just can't be helped, at least as far as props go.

I'd much rather buy from you guys, when I can afford it.

At least I know it'd be quality.

I see it includes a donation to the local Purplebelly Ball fundraiser as well. :lol:

I've also got bits of the unofficial Whitefall papers. Mostly from scouring the `Net. Seems like there were a couple of versions. Mine say Eli Harbatkin on `em.

Goodwolf,

What do you mean by 'double edged sword'?

I can't speak for Goodwolf, but to me,
the double-edged sword is the line between fans sharing for the sake of fandom,
and profiteers taking from the work of others for money and not fan interest.

Whitefall did a wonderful, creative thing with the ships papers both pre-QMx and with QMx.
For me, the penalty of a few profiteers is out-weighed by the good things that come from fan-made efforts.
Shoot, we're doing the same thing right now,
trying to create the McBrayer Whiskey label from an example
that the owner has specifically said he doesn't want copied.
Well, if he didn't want it copied, then he should have kept it to himself.
But there's no joy in hiding our cool stuff away, is there?
So its a double-edged sword.
Enjoy sharing for the camaraderie of fandom;
a few scumbags (who couldn't care less) make money.

ME, I'm happier sharing.

Mike

There seems to be two schools of thought on props.

The first is what I call the Gino principle, named after a fellow on RPF. He thinks that details need to be kept out of the public view so as to make it easier to trace provenance on items. This would, in theory, keep counterfeits to a minimum.

The other is the FFA, or Free For All principle, as I think of it. Essentially, that all knowledge for props should be shared and encouraged so as to make them the most accessible. This, in theory, would keep hackjobs like the stuff that shows up on ebay to a minimum. After all, if we all have it, why buy it?

I can see the value in both schools, and while I tend to lean towards the second, I don't lean far enough to share stuff if asked not to. But it's worth noting that sites like TDH, where the information is shared by all much more than the RPF still has a vibrant economy in Fett gear. Just because I know the theory of making a boba outfit doesn't mean I can actually back it up with the practical skills, after all.

Sorry if I misunderstood your original post, but it seemed like you were annoyed that someone took pics and "shared" them on the intertubez without your permission.
