Lady Blackbird

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 commander of the cruiser, Captain Hollas, runs the smuggler ship’s registry over the wireless. It’s 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?

Come play one of my favorite games! Lady Blackbird never plays the same way twice and is always great fun!

    Huzzah! Full boat, er, airship!

    If anyone has preferences for a PC, let me know.

      I'm hoping to play Cyrus or Kale but I'm not picky.

    Change of plans! Turns out I can make it after all. :)

    I'm interested in coming IF my trike is out of the shop, and IF it isn't raining seriously, but I don't want to stand in the way of someone else who wants to come more badly.

    I was reacting to the name of the current New York County District Attorney being used in a period-piece/SFantasy roleplaying game! Rather jarring!

      And I am a silly goose! I blame the fact that Morgenthau was DA for...my entire life...for causing me to not notice that right away. (My assumption is that John Harper is referencing the vErne character.) Of course, Morgenthau's father was in FDR's administration, so somehow a requirement for DA of New York county is having a dad in a Presidential cabinet, or something.

      Anyway, please come play, Lady Blackbird is a really wonderful game!

      My attendance will depend at least in part on the weather.

    I would love to play as Naomi Bishop, but if I end up with a different character, that's totally fine too!

    I would love to go, but Thursdays are the day of my regular group. :(

    Are you pitching yourself for Vance, or noting that he shares a name (in some English translations) with a Verne character? :-)
