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!

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 ...

Shinigami

Erik Florentz
Slot 6 - Sat 7pm-12am - 5 hours
FULL

Player Characters are Shinigami, a Japanese version of the Grim Reaper. They dwell in a place known as Soul Society or the afterlife (also called the spirit world). It is meant to correspond to Heaven or Nirvana in Human belief systems. It is the place where most departed souls and the Shinigami dwell. The culture is based on ancient Japanese customs and traditions, with a blend of high technology and high magic. Soul Society is ruled by the Spirit King, formally addressed as The Heavenly Sunflower or informally as Benedict. In actual practice a civilian government known as Central 46 calls the shots. Shinigami are sworn members of the military and are honor bound to follow the orders of their superiors. Things have been changing more rapidly than normal in the Real World. Rituals that have long been powerless are now starting to work. Names that have been tossed around since time began are now being used in the present tense.More ...

Nine Megacorporations in Amberzone

Craig Sparling
Slot 8 - Sun 7pm-12am - 5 hours
DOES NOT RUN

People call it the Amberzone, and it’s not a cheerful, friendly place. Mega corporations have ruthlessly consolidated power, and they make everyone, from the lowliest sage slave to the most powerful government leader, dance to their tune.

While technology has merged with flesh. Sorcery is still about, too slipery for minds of mental. All of the fair races of Elves, Dwarfs, Gnomes, and humans rub shoulders in the light, careful not to lift their boot of the neck of the less fair. Dragons and Unicorns aren’t just in adult colouring books, they own stock.

Many people sell their lives and the lives of their children to these megacorps, believing they have no choice, and the feeble safety that documentation earn them is worth the contractually lost freedom.

Below the Documented, there are the undocumented, scratching their lives out of the rust, dust, filth or what ever margin or wasteland they can calim an hold as their own.More ...
