Well, my nighttime schedules suck most nights; I don't like staying up past 9:00 PST or so Sunday through Thursday nights because I get up for work at 2:00 PST, and boss wants me to work 5 days; 5 hours of sleep is the minimum I need to not feel utterly dead at work. I can stay up a little later friday and saturday nights, though.

And it was a short session (we had a couple of players who were unwell), but I still managed to introduce all the characters and place them in peril at the hands of ruthless pirates! Kitsumimi-Maiden's and Nerrin's characters worked together to pull off some epic piloting, which allowed them to break the chase and turn the tables on their attackers... which is where we'll pick up next session!

Which was about 99% all her doing, with some "woo! Gift of the Thunderbird!" from me. And our character interactions thus far can otherwise be summed up as (paraphrasing the lady herself),

Me: "I don't think your idea is wise, but as long as you have a plan..."
Her: "Haha, he thinks I make plans!"

And seeing as how she's the current pilot of the ship, I now have some not-unfounded worries for the health of my poor old priest's heart. ;-)

I'm sad that I missed the session but I had to spend all day "LARPing" some swashbuckling action on a mandatory laboratory field trip.

I feel really bad that I didn't do anything. :( I had a fever and it was hard to focus. Hopefully I'll be in fine health for the continuation of our adventures. :)

And you got your wish. :3:

I'll post the first two session logs when I get home. They're still embroiled in broadside combat with a pair of pirate airships which appeared suddenly and without warning (or so it would appear), but characterization is starting to come to the fore. I can't wait to see where this game goes.

For what it's worth, I really just wanted to shove the party into a crisis situation (We're aboard an Ilwuzi skyship with no idea where we're heading, we're under attack, and the Captain's just been shot) to see what plot hooks I could spin from the inter-character dynamics. Trust me, it's generated a whole list of things to explore for when they make berth. :ssh:

Mechanics-wise, I love that the ship turns are long enough to allow plenty of time for individual characters to complete independent actions between the thunder of guns. For example, Lumby's character cooked up an alchemical wind potion to knock one of the ships out of range so they wouldn't get flanked. The next turn, we had Kailan's Musketeer sniping at an incoming boarding party as the Plushiemancer's runaway Barathi noble fell back on his upbringing to intimidate the ship's marines into making ready to receive "guests."

All this while Nerrin's character scrambled to load the guns and Kogi's character maneuvered the ship into position to fire upon the enemy vessel's stern.

The session concluded with all the clamor and din waking up stowaway and MIGHTY KOLDUN Red (BB's character), who took out her wrath by setting one of the boarding parties' wingcloaks ablaze. (As is only proper for a dragon awakened prematurely)

Shipboard combat in S7S is a stressful experience, and it really requires the PCs to cooperate in order to have any chance at success.
