Very long overview/review link
Lady Blackbird is on the run from an arranged marriage to Count Carlowe. She hired a smuggler skyship, The Owl, to take her from her palace on the Imperial world of Ilysium to the far reaches of the Remnants, so she could be with her once secret lover: the pirate king Uriah Flint.
However, just before reaching the halfway point of Haven, The Owl was pursued and captured by the Imperial cruiser Hand of Sorrow, under charges of flying a false flag.
Even now, Lady Blackbird, her bodyguard, and the crew of The Owl are detained in the brig, while the Imperial commander runs the smuggler shipís registry over the wireless. Itís only a matter of time before they discover the outstanding warrants and learn that The Owl is owned by none other than the infamous outcast, Cyrus Vance.
How will Lady Blackbird and the others escape the Hand of Sorrow?
What dangers lie in their path?
Will they be able to find the secret lair of the pirate king? if they do, will Uriah Flint accept Lady Blackbird as his bride? By the time they get there, will she want him to?
Go. Play. And find out.

| Apr 6, 2013 12:16 PM || - Lisa:|| What I won't cover in detail and you might want to read includes the section in the game pack on The Wild Blue and on The Owl. We'll distribute characters at the beginning based on whatever you want to play/rock paper scissors. |
| Apr 6, 2013 12:13 PM || - Lisa:|| Okay, game is on for tomorrow at the Citigroup Center (601 Lexington Avenue) located at 53rd Street between Lexington Avenue and Third Avenue in midtown Manhattan. I need each of you to bring some paper (for making a name sign and for keeping track of points) and a pen/cil. If you want to read in the game pack, you can. http://www.onesevendesign.com/ladyblackbird/ I will do an introduction to the mechanics and world up top. . . con't|

| Apr 1, 2013 11:31 AM || - Lisa:|| Lady Blackbird is coming up. I still have room for 1 more player. Also, if Tracy, Matt, Jason, and Kentmagus could let me know if they are still planning on attending, it would help out. Connolly, I'll run another game of this on another day, unless it turns out people want to drop this one. Then I'll change the date.|
| Mar 29, 2013 5:18 PM || - Connolly206:|| Lisa, if it moves from the weekend of the 7th please let me know ill ill come. That weekend is my birthday and I'm tied up|
| Mar 18, 2013 2:22 PM || - Lisa:|| In theory you can switch genders or really do whatever. There needs to be marriage/love intrigue, but that can take many forms as far as gender goes. For the purposes of this game, since its my first time running it, I'd like to stick to the original character genders however. |
| Mar 12, 2013 1:24 PM || - James L:|| Could a person change the genders? Could someone be Mr. Lord Blackbeard? and switch everyone else? just curious|
| Feb 28, 2013 9:09 PM || - Capt_Dan:|| This does look good. |
| Feb 28, 2013 5:00 PM || - Ross H:|| Sounds great, Lisa. The 7th isn't great for me (I'm just getting back from a business trip on the 6th), and in general April's a bit of a mess with work travel, but I'm very interested. Let me look at my calendar, but don't let me hold this up if you can gather a group now...|
| Feb 28, 2013 4:52 PM || - Lisa:|| Hi anyone interested. This is my first time running this game (but I've played it twice). It's also my first time GMing on this site. The date isn't set in stone yet, but it's approximate. This game is mostly role-playing, and it really depends a lot on the players to create the world/story progression. The game is free to download, so you can take a look at the pre-gen characters and world. Try to avoid the end of the .pdf (page 9 on), as that's the GM guide.|
