Right well, I started to GM a game of Lady Blackbird over on a different site
Things started out swimmingly. We had a sixth player who grafted together a new character, Alistair Pyke, who the Imperials already had locked up in the brig when the Owl's crew and hires were brought on board.
Interactions went well but then things got, er, interesting!
Lady Blackbird is a bossy authorative figure and ordered Kale about a bit, while Kale - who only takes orders from Vance, spat out a few verbal stings and barbs.
The situation escalated once they were out of their two jail cells. Kale nabbed a number of items from the unconscious guards (taken out by Naomi) including some Imperial Code/Message/Map tubes. Lady B turned army major type and told him to hand them over "spit spot" to her. Kale, in his flippant way deferred to Captain Vance and said "they may be rigged to explode, or to trace us where we go. I'll hand them over but she needs to know the dangers".
At which point, because Kale had not done her bidding, Lady B cast high magic and created a bubble around Kale and proceeded to suck out all his air for a bit. She did let him go, attempting to gloss over the situation by directing her verbals to Vance telling him to ensure his crew knew their place and that she was Noble born etc etc.
And then Snargle (being played as a female goblin) took umbridge to Kales punishment and jumped onto her head, acting like a spickey plastic bag, taking her air away but also giving her a small "life story". Snargle explained that she was much like Lady B and had been stripped of her position in life because of it and was now doing penance. She had a choice - play nice, or die.
So now I await Captain Vance (having internet problems so may not post till Sunday) to react and post and Hopefully defuse the situation before Kale kills Lady B or vice versa. And also to stop that happening any time in the future of the story....
And so far we are still in the brig of the Hand of Sorrow....Imperials pounding down the hallway to see what the commotion is.....and the crew and hires bickering and fighting each other.
So we are very close to having a complete derailing of the story, with possible deaths caused by PvP.
Anyone else ever seen a Lady Blackbird game go south? I'm both curious to see how this turns out and also wanting a complete game reboot! lol :}
