Campaign is long-form actual play podcast. Our current series Campaign: Skyjacks takes place in an original setting inspired by folktales and classic adventure fiction. Join Liz Anderson, John Patrick Coan, Tyler Davis, Johnny O’Mara, and gamemaster James D’Amato as they tell a tale of daring sky pirates. … Also it’s basically an elaborate re-telling of Weekend at Bernie’s.
Gable and Hildred share another heart to heart in the hospital. Gable decides to be more forthcoming than they have ever been in their time on Spéir. Meanwhile, Travis and Jonnit struggle to study for a competition they have invested almost no time into understanding.
Travis is less than 100% confident for the first time in years as he is forced to enter the captain into the falconry competition with no one else around to control him. Meanwhile, Gable gets some troubling news as Jonnit and Traveler Kwan also receive some troubling news from The Broker.
Jonnit and Gable finally confront Traveler Kwan hoping to learn why they were being followed and hopefully something about what it means to be a seer. Meanwhile, Travis sails cocksure into a competition he knows absolutely nothing about.

Gable and Jonnit rush out of the Broker's office to chase the captain who concluded the negotiation by jumping out a fifth-story window. Travis flies desperately the other way to give his friends the tragic news about Dref. Before they can do anything more they must tell the crew and attend to their fallen friend.

The thrilling conclusion to the race as the Uhuru Crew desperately tries to build up points in Aur Pióra.

Dref decides to hang back and study for The Show and Trevis helpfully offers to drink while he does it.

Travis, Jonnit, and Gable head to the bird stables to rent a griffin for the race. While they're at the stables Gable finally meets up with Hildred Gastaur who wants to show her gratitude in a way they weren't expecting...
While Dref studies in the hotel room like a good boy Jonnit, Gable, and Travis head to the black market to do some shopping and the reference desk for some snooping. Travis gets more than he bargained for and Gable tries to fight some natural urges.
Thanks to their bizarre contract with The Broker our heroes have just a day to prepare for the race which opens Aur Pióra. Can Dref help his companions: a charismatic idiot, a career layabout, and an actual child learn the obscenely complicated rules?

Weaving through the crowded streets of pre-festival Burza Nyth, Travis leads the Skyjacks to an old acquaintance. Relieving themselves of their woven wares is simple in theory. But don't count on simple when it comes to this crew.
The Uhuru docks at a new port with hopes of selling the massive cache of feather weave they stole from The Civility. Burza Nyth is a free metropolis that entertains commerce from Red Feather, privateer, and corsair vessels alike. Of course, being welcome is not the same as being safe.
The Uhuru docks with Shankhill and is immediately placed on edge because they can't find anyone. While Gable, Jonnit, and Travis explore the town Dref tries to keep the crew calm while they speculate about what might have happened.
The Uhuru sails for Shankhill as Dref tries to help gable establish their connection with the feather they have recently acquired. Jonnit and Travis work to settle into their new roles. Sailing is anything but smooth.

The battle continues as the sun starts to rise. Travis struggles to keep from falling out of the ship while he transforms leaving Jonnit to defend their plunder from Red Feather soldiers.

Jonnit and Travis move to spike the cannons on the second level of The Civility, but with the crew sleeping they must take great pains to avoid being caught. Meanwhile, Gable and Dref make their way over for Gable's decidedly less subtle landing party.
With the crew ready to take a risk by attacking The Civility, our heroes must put together a plan of attack. Even with the element of surprise a battle with such a large ship could be costly.
