Alternate Amber

Youtopia

David Blackwell
Slot 2 - Fri 9am-1pm - 4 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 3 TO 9 PLAYERS

Amber, the one true world, of which all others are but shadows. You are sons and daughters of Oberon, King of Amber. But this is an Amber above all expectations, a perfect world... in your eyes.

This is a one shot event, and a different form of shared world. Each player will portray one of the Elder Amberites enumerated in the Corwin's tale; Benedict, Finndo, Osric, Dierdre, Eric, Bleys, Brand, Fiona, Llewella, Caine, Gerard, Julian, Flora, Random, or Mirelle. (Yes, Corwin himself is excluded.)

As a player, you must tell me which character you will portray, and describe the perfect world of Amber from the perspective of your character. You should tell me what differences exist between your character and his or her depiction in Corwin's rather lurid fables. Your description of Amber may also differ from Corwin's.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Contact the GM, mindwright@aol.com,and provide a first, second and third choice of character. Once your character is approved, provide a description of the character, his or her interests, and the perfect world of Amber as seen from his or her unique perspective. These descriptions may be as detailed or rough as you desire, and may be very different from those provided by Corwin.

Guardians of Chaos and Amber

Craig Johnson
Slot 1 - Thu 7pm-12am - 5 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 2 TO 7 PLAYERS

Life has sucked... It was a crappy year...
First you were abducted from your home and had to escape. Then you ended up arrested by these jackboot goons who framed you and sent you to a nasty prison in the centre of the dimensions where you slaved for benefit of the Tree.
Now - they need you. They all need you!
Seems that one of your parents was a Lord of Creation, a Prince of Amber or Chaos and you have suppressed powers. You are a good guy, sort of, well, misunderstood.
Seems that Mandor and Fiona, your two Wardens have come around offering you a Pardon from their bosses to stop some very bad dude and his army of thugs from taking everything over. They are worse than Mandor and Fiona!
Now power has shifted - and you are ready to become with your fellow prisoners - the Guardians of Chaos and Amber.
The Universes will just not be the same again!

Riddles Quest

Bridgette Ruggles
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
3 TO 7 RETURNING PLAYERS ONLY

The Queen gave them a quest the cousins have agreed they don't want, only one is truly beholden, there are still Uncles to question, but they darn hard to find, and since the gaze into the mirrors no one has slept well. The dreams leave them tossing and turning, waking with a sense of dread but nothing but foggy nebulus visions.

The days at the manor house, with the predictable, unevadable dinner bell schedule and Wilhelmina's everywhere at once presense, seem like a very long time ago.

And All Of Our Yesterdays Have Lighted Fools, Part 14

My room.
Rae H. Williams
Slot 5 - Sat 10am-5pm - 7 hours
SPACE FOR 3 TO 8 Returning Players given preference, New Players welcome

2016 Thirteenth Year, which got very dark: I'm running this story in Slot 6, so I'll send out the recap when I get the players list. There was a lot of stabbing though. Dworkin is dead and so are a bunch of Chaosians, but not due to the players . . . at least, not this time.

Each part of this series is based on a different Shakespeare play. You don’t have to be an aficianado to enjoy the game. Part 1 was based on "MacBeth." Part 2 was "The Merchant of Venice." Part 3 was "The Comedy of Errors." Part 4 was "Romeo And Juliet." Part 5 was "As You Like It." Part 6 was “King John.” Part 7 was “Henry VI, Part 2.” Part 8 was “All’s Well That Ends Well.” Part 9 was "Measure For Measure." Part 10 was “Henry VIII.” Part 11 was “The Tempest.” Part 12 was “Henry VI, Part 1” Part 13 was “Julius Caesar”. Part 14 is based on another Shakespeare play, but you'll have to guess which.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
If you have not played as a Lighted Fool before, contact me prior to the convention, and I will send information.
