A FSP (First Series Purist) Star Wars adventure.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....
This game takes place about 20 years before A New Hope and will explore what the universe might have been like before the classic sci-fi trilogy. Players will build their characters by e-mail using the KEY RPG system before the con. The order of the Jedi have been dwindling for centuries and are believed by most to be a myth, but players can play Jedis if they wish. There's also plenty of opportunities for scoundrels with a weak spot for hard luck cases, soldiers with a conscience turning away from their training to do the right thing, or any other character concepts...as long as you are a character with some sort of moral code. (NO DARK SIDE CHARACTERS.)
Please note: To be clear, nothing that happened outside of the original movie trilogy is canon for this game. No Jar-Jar. No Trade Federation. This is an alternate Star Wars universe.
The Great Detective summoned you out of the blue, as he is wont to do. There was no substance as to why your particular talents were required but, as always, you answered the call.
Arriving at the stoop of 221B Baker Street, you were not greeted as normal by the redoubtable Mrs. Hudson but by the slightly ajar door...you called out hesitantly, entered cautiously only to find the corpses of Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson. Others of the Irregulars have arrived as well and the group of you are left with a horrific scene and the mystery of who killed the world's greatest detective.
An Irregular Affair is a mystery, an adventure and an entrée into a broader story that may take players far afield from their current lives in the Great City and roles as members of the Baker Street Irregulars. This game may become a continuing affair.
You have awoken from the nightmare to find the multiverse...changed, much is missing including most of your family...in fact it appears only the Princesses have survived...the only Prince of Amber left appears to be Martin.
Now those that remain - you - must try and maintain what remains...and what remains appears to be disintegrating rapidly, whirlpools and tornadoes and sinkholes are swallowing shadow and the passage between the islands of reality and power that remain become increasingly difficult to traverse...Dara headed out into deep shadow, Fiona discovered a strange spaceship in her home shadow with clones of Amber's royal family in stasis, Dierdre and Llewella investigate the scene at the Primal Pattern...and what of Flora, Mirelle and Sand? Do other Princesses survive?More ...
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.
Continues from Slot 3
As we begin the 20th year, everyone is unconscious.
Prior to that:
A. Melian, with help, brought the Golden Monkey back to life, so that the Life avatar is alive again . . . good move.
B. Ulysses improved the lands around his power and spent time at the Prana.
C. Trisk solidified the power that she and Kerribad created, though there is a Cthulhu shaped mound in the center of it, kind of like climbing a mountain to walk it. She sang as she worked on it.
D. Lowen took the Eye of Cthulhu and created a new power, which seemed to jump around through Shadow as she created it.
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,
Try to understand:
He is not big, He is not small.
He is Infinite Distance,
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.
A game and dinner excursion for existing characters in the Court Dances universe.
Having endured the grail quest in the shadow Pattern known as the Field of Thorns, the youngest lords and ladies of Amber haven been blessed by the Unicorn and transported from Avalon to Amber. There, they have used the grail to wake the cursed Benedict and Julian.
Now, they are in Amber for the first time since their fateful encounter with the Mistress of the Wild Hunt. Much has changed in their long absence and their enemies still pursue them. Random has called a family meeting in the hopes of finding answers, but it may already be too late.
