Level: 1

First Session: Friday -- April 19th, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
[Eastern Time]

Description:
Lady Blackbird is a free to download "story-game". It is a scenario, yet also a game system. Players assemble dice pools when attempting actions, and get more dice the more they can tie in their character's traits. The perfect size for a game is 5 players and a Gamemaster. 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 18, 2013 5:13 PM - Lisa: Hi guys. See you tomorrow. Here is the address:
Au Bon Gout
276 5th Ave New York, NY 10001
between 29th St. and 30th St.
I'll be in the back on the second floor. It's a bodega-type place, so you can buy food and drink there if you want.
Apr 15, 2013 8:09 AM - Lisa: I'm looking to run 2 Friday games, each lasting about 2 hours. If you've never played Lady Blackbird, it's mostly about making stuff up and then trying to do it -- extremely freeform. If you have played it, I can let you generate your own character. If most people have played it, I'll run one of the hacks.
