Today was the epic conclusion to the Lady Blackbird I've been playing with some friends!  AND OH MAN: EPIC.  There was actual crying on the part of more than one player when one of the characters died.  (...I may have started it.)

It was really kind of cool because although the game's story setup sort of aimed for a major plot being the titular character's romantic decision between her lover and fiancé, the Pirate King Uriah Flint, and the captain of the ship transporting her, Cyrus Vance, the major decision that she ended up having to make was between Uriah and... her bodyguard-slash-bff Naomi.  It was also kind of hella cool because Lady Blackbird's main flaw was really her self-centeredness, and then she ends the arc by dying for someone else TwT

And I mean, like, the ending, oh man, oh man, the whole ending sequence was totally awesome.  tl;dr there was much awesome to be had and I had a great time playing Naomi.

I really ended up liking the system because it's built for character development and also tends to be nicely cinematic if you get the right group of players, which we definitely had.  (We also had a really kickass GM, which helped a lot.)

Anyway, squee.  It was fun, and I'm going to miss playing it.
