“Which RPG does the most with the least words?” asks #RPGaDAY on Day 21.
Ah! That’s simple — It’s John Harper’s Lady Blackbird. You get a movie serial opening throwing you right into the action and promising amazing moments, a peek into an imaginative setting, and worldbuilding in the character’s stats. There’s magic, ’cause this person has it. There are fantasy races, because this one is one. There are large beasts floating in the nether because they’re only mentioned in this one diagram. It’s a game that does so much in a tiny little packet where half of the pages have a half-page worth of material repeated on them.
