Amber with a Twist

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!

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters have a wide range of options and backgrounds. Some character ideas could get darker and there could be some humour. This is parallel to but different than the Suicide Squad that ran at ACNW. Please contact the GM Craig - calj at mts.net

MouseGuard Amber: Something's Rotten in Arden

Anne Delekta
Slot 6 - Sat 7pm-12am - 5 hours
FULL

Be you mice or be you heroes?

Under the forest canopy of Arden lies a hidden world, unknown to the rangers and even the great Julian himself. As strange creatures breach the boundaries of Arden and threaten Amber, the Guardsmice of Arden stand ready to defend it.

This is an Amber/Mouse Guard mashup that relies predominantly upon ADRPG rules, fleshed out with Mouse Guard traits and abilities. Knowledge of the Mouse Guard RPG is not required. The story begins during Nine Princes in Amber.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Character creation is simple and will be done at the con (but I will send out information beforehand.)

Charlie's Hellmaids

Anne Delekta
Slot 1 - Thu 7pm-12am - 5 hours
FULL

1970s Shadow Earth. Chaos has learned that this shadow is a popular destination for the royal family of Amber, and they want to know more.
You have been recruited from the lower ranks of Chaos (not necessarily Hellmaids.) Your assignment is to live on Shadow Earth and investigate and monitor Amberite activity there.
Think Charlie's Angels meets Fox Force Five. Mission-based 70s cheese.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Character creation will mostly be carried out at the Con; a brief character idea submitted beforehand would be appreciated. There are no gender restrictions for characters.

Brave New World Reloaded

Rae H. Williams
Slot 8 - Sun 7pm-12am - 5 hours
2 TO 10 RETURNING PLAYERS ONLY

Last year:
Patricia really started working on being Queen of Amber, by started making romantic overtures to Eric. Though the eye thing with Corwin was disconcerting.

Sinopa tried to keep the fairies under control.

Ix and others found that Oberon was the source of all the Bayles coming into their homeland.

Wakin suspects that Mandor is the man he seeks.

Gobo is actually becoming more of a leader than he realizes. He has a follower.

Alex was joined by Brendan and continued following the Black Road and found it led to their homeland and beyond.

More silliness or possibly a real plot this year.

Get some sleep during the convention. Will run as late as we can.

Master Sivavakkiyar's Words
He is not Hari, He is not the Lord Siva.
He is the Ultimate Cause,
In the Beyond of the Beyond,
Transcending Blackness, Redness, and Whiteness,
Immovable.
Try to understand:
He is not big, He is not small.
He is Infinite Distance,
Immovable,
Transcending even
Supreme Quiescence.

Sivavakkiyar

Corwin drew a new Pattern on the way to Chaos. He planted Ygg's branch there. This is the story of what happened next - heavily influenced by Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel Cycle, flavored with Dumas and Brust.

Moire, Queen of Sea and Darkness, is eternal. Her closest counterpart, King Oberon of Amber, has passed into the Abyss and is no more. Yet, she remains, sovereign and guardian of the Sea and the Lands Beneath. Her undersea realm of Rebma is a maelstrom of intrigue, magic, high adventure, romance, and danger. It's a good place to live. And an easy place to die. When enemies from the lands above and the depths below threaten, it is your duty and your pleasure to defend the realm and serve the beautiful and terrible Moire.

Now, Queen Moire's bravest and most loyal knights face intrigue, danger, magic, betrayal, intrigue, murder, mystery, and intrigue in the most dangerous and treacherous realm of all: Amber.

Can they serve their Queen and realm with honor in an honorless land?

SPACE FOR 3 TO 8 Returning Players given preference, New Players welcome

This time, this place (well, sorta, there were a few minor changes). You are elite soldiers from militaries around the world, and attached specialist and even civilians, in a black ops program dealing with invasion of Earth by non-humans, the TARGETS. The Colonels' Council running the program generates missions ranging from reconnaissance of parallel worlds reachable through the tunnel system, to support and expansion of off-world bases and even a proto-colony, in case Earth falls.More ...

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Contact Edwin Voskamp at ambercon.com@voskamp.org. Characters are created using the Amber Diceless Role-play system, but based on 10 points rather than the 100 points of normal ‘Amber’ characters (though attributes are Human = 0, Chaos = 5, Amber = 10). Points can be spent on Attributes, Stuff, Background, and Items.

In Pretty Amber, there sits a King of All Order. In Dark Chaos, there hovers a Queen on the Edge of the Tree of Matter. Amber and Chaos have vexed us since before the Nameless spit out the Logrus. Terrible immortals, they parcel the universe and squabble over mysteries.

Once the Glorious Pendrad was the Crafting the UnderGods feared, and too long they have forgotten who built the Pendrad. We call You of all Bloods together, for a Memory returned. Young Immortals are pretty, but not the prettiest or most wicked. For they are not Fae. We call you to Dance. Come dance the Escalara....More ...
