Am I the only one who channels Brian Blessed when running the King?

So much fun!
Good choice. I think he might be played by Jack Black in my campaign.

True!

Something tells me they were drawing heavily from Flash Gordon for this:
Flying city. Check.
Hawk wings on the royal guard. Check.
Big, fat, bombastic king. Check.
Attractive, yet lethal princess. Check.

CERTAINLY NOT! I, TOO, USE THAT VOICE WHEN THE KING SPEAKS! :lol:

I wrapped up a "season" of my Drinax game, the second so far--Real Life means our group needs to take a break for some months.

A short summary:
I was running the pirate half of Sun & Shadow. In our last game, they'd gotten some good intel, and were able to ambush and capture the Prophet Zomon. This game, they stretched all of their efforts to fly that beastie to Theev and cash in. It took them cramming their existing ships into the big cargo hold, filling most of the rest with fuel from a gas giant, and using all of their crews to run the Zomon. They succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, and the characters decided to retire with their winnings. Two of them opted to retire to Court at Drinax, one to cruise the Imperium, the rest to Torpol.

I'll start the next season with new Travellers in the (fully repaired and decorated Harrier) Manticore . This group had started to bring in the Borderlands cluster, and I expect the next crew to do more of the same.
