[Lady Blackbird] PC status

edited August 2011 in Out-Of-Game
Make a single post and use it to maintain a running total of your Current Pool, Secrets that have been "used up", and XP total (I really like to see where the XP is going so I know we're hitting everyone's Keys).

Players, please create a separate thread for your PC, label it with [Lady Blackbird] 'Your PC's Name' and add the LadyB tag.

• The Owl •
An old but reliable skyship, outfitted for smuggling

Sky Hauler C9 Refit
The Owl was once a Sky Hauler C9 cargo ship but has since
been extensively customized by Cyrus and Kale. It has a smaller
cargo area and four passenger berths in the reclaimed space. It
also has hidden smuggling compartments scattered throughout
the vessel.
The Owl is an old ship, but it can hold its own with more modern
vessels thanks to its custom engines and supercharged steam
drive. Snargle has also made several unique adjustments to the
controls to allow the large ship to maneuver like a much smaller
Unfortunately, all of these modifcations put a lot of strain on
the old girl. Kale keeps the ship running day to day, but when
it’s put under a lot of stress (as it often is) things can
go awry—broken pipes, vented steam, leaking
fluids, and worse.
Still, The Owl is not just a skyship, it’s a home to its crew. They
gather around the beat-up old wooden dinner table in the galley
every night and thank the four winds that fortune saw ?t to
bless them with such a fine craft.

  • Please tag this thread with the PC's tags -- it'll make it easier to find as the number of LadyB threads grows.
  • One thing that helped me a lot was hyper-linking my status post with my character sheet thread and vice versa.
  • Posted By: Christopher WeeksPlease tag this thread with the PC's tags -- it'll make it easier to find as the number of LadyB threads grows.
    Done! Good suggestion.
  • I know it's lame, but *bump.*
  • Thanks, Chris. Everyone, please update.

    BUMP. Everyone please update and confirm when complete.

    ETA - Scott, you can clear those conditions off Kale. All conditions are gone at this point.

    Mine's always updated. Every time I spend or gain pool or xp, I come here and keep it current. And I just started adding the use of my Lucky Break during this session because it was a pain to go back and figure out if I'd used it.
  • Snargle doesn't get anything for it, but you, Chris, you have my eternal gratitude. :)
  • Rustin, Scott and Marshall, how bout you?

  • I'm updated as far as I know.
  • I think I am, spending xp for the garage, if that materializes.
