I wish I had some design-fu. Then I would feel more comfortable sharing the Twilight Blackbird hack I ran for Jason and co. at GPNW 2009. Word docs suck:(

I put together My Darn Ex-Wife in Word. I mean, it clearly shows, but it shouldn't frighten you away from posting it.

Hey, i'm actually working on one of these. Thanks for putting out the game. I've had these ideas spinning through my head for years. LB gives me a chance to do something with them.

I'll send you it once i get the characters and solid direction on a setting together.

I love love Love how most of your story is written into the characters.

I love the concept of Ladybird, and the easy to use rules system. I'd love include an article or something in Irregular Magazine.

Man, I love these hacks! Going to try to get a Jedi Blackbird running next month.

I have a hack of my own to submit. What's the best way to send it to you, John?

Blogger John Harper says:  

Send it to my email (it's on the first page of Lady Blackbird).

Blogger LordDraqo says:  

Very nice work, I'm looking forward to doing some interesting things with the setting.

Is this collection still updated? It seems to be missing at least Death School.

We played a second session of Jedi Blackbird over the easter weekend and all the players had an excellent time!

Blogger John Harper says:  

Updated! Thanks for the reminder.

Blogger Unknown says:  

Always/Never/Now deserves a mention!

Operation Blackbird is missing :( Could somebody send me to, please? Thanks a lot!

Blogger The Malum says:  

Here's another person interested in Operation Blackbird. Seems even the Wayback Machine doesn't have it archived.
