The Warren: Aftermath

John's room
John Nienart
Slot 4 - Fri 8pm-12am - 4 hours
SPACE FOR 2 TO 4 Returning Players given preference, New Players welcome

After generations of peace and relative quiet, last summer your Warren suffered a terrible crisis, in the form of Cottontail's arrival. But despite some sad losses, the Warren survives: You managed to drive off or trap the rabbits from the other warren; Wintergreen's leadership was amply demonstrated; and you've all learned a remarkable new skill. Now, as long as you don't run into that fox again, and She doesn't notice you at the wrong time, you can return to the peaceful lives you're used to.

This game is a sequel to the one run at ACUS 2016. Returning players can keep their same characters, or create new ones as they prefer; in the latter case their previous rabbits will have died—why?

The Warren is a game by Marshall Miller that's about intelligent rabbits trying to make the best of it in a word filled with predators, hazards, and, worst of all, other rabbits. It is a game about survival and community. It is Apocalypse World crossed with Bunnies and Burrows.

Though Much is Taken, Much Abides: Rendezvous in Amber

Boardroom
J.P. Brannan
Slot 4 - Fri 8pm-12am - 4 hours
SPACE FOR 3 TO 8 Returning Players given preference, New Players welcome

Amber is made weak by time and fate, but is still strong in will.

Twenty years ago a new King, Random, returned victorious from the Patternfall War fought in the Courts of Chaos. The Epoch of Oberon had ended, and Eric's attempt to ignite a new age of glory had already died in ashes when it had scarcely begun. The King found he had inherited a kingdom cut off from its trading partners, depleted by war, and only kept afloat in the intervening years by the heroic efforts of Prince Regent Gerard.

Now you are younger members of the royal family in service to the throne, working not only to preserve and defend Amber, but to create the Amber of the future. Diplomats, soldiers, traders, courtiers, and provocateurs, you must be proud, bold, pleasant, resolute, and now and then stab, as occasion serves.More ...

What do players need to do to prepare for the game

Note: though technically 'teen friendly' there may be adult content such as international diplomacy, important trade and investment relations, and potentially even macroeconomics.

Infinite Amber: The Morning After Skyfall

Board Room
J.P. Brannan
Slot 2 - Fri 9am-1pm - 4 hours
FULL

Amber: eternal; the city without an end. After the adventures of Corwin and Merlin, it is no longer believed to be the center of the universe. Instead it is one pole of reality. War and rivalries have reshaped the universe. Kings Random and Merlin sit on the thrones of Amber and Chaos. Random will call upon all the resources at his disposal to preserve and reassert Amber's primacy. Those resources include you, his nieces and nephews, the latest generation of Amber's growing royal family. Together you'll face a threat unlike many Amber has faced before. And if at all possible, don't let King Merlin know anything is going on. He'd only make it weirder.

Scratch that. It can't get any weirder. It may be time to tell Merlin.

NOTE: Though technically an 'ongoing series' this is highly episodic and new players will NOT be at a disadvantage.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters will be King Random's nieces and nephews. An alternative rule set will be used for "Infinite Amber", which will be circulated online. The GM will contact players to help with character generation prior to the convention. (For people already familiar with this: we'll be using the Infinite Amber version 2.1 rules, a simplified revision of rules that have been played at other conventions.) GM is willing to assist with character generation or even provide pre-generated characters if notified in advance: jp@brannan.jp

Shadowpact: Sentinels of Magic

James Arnoldi
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 2 TO 7 PLAYERS

Don't call us a team. We don't have a clubhouse, secret handshake, or any of that crap. We just meet in the back of the Oblivion Bar. However, when the forces of Chaotic magic threaten the world, we've made a pact to protect it.

The Justice League of America may be great if a giant robot is attacking Metropolis or aliens invade Central City, but when you're dealing from ancient horrors from beyond reality, even Superman is vulnerable to magic.

This game is set in a new version of the DC Comics/Vertigo Universe. While familiar characters like John Constantine or Swamp Thing exist in this setting, it is not based on a particular version of the setting, so players do not need previous DC Comics knowledge. So, if you wanted to play Lucifer as seen on the Fox TV show, for example, that would be just fine.More ...

A Lammas Night Eve

Craig Johnson
Slot 5 - Sat 10am-5pm - 7 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 2 TO 7 PLAYERS

Inside Amber Castle, behind great walls, lurk many internal chasms. Hidden enemies wait to challenge the existence of the one true kingdom. All seems well – for now - though unknown perils threaten everyone.

Yet, amid the Chaos in the fog of peace, lurks opportunity for the wise, the ruthless and the daring.

It is time for the pebbles to determine the avalanche. The very beat of one royal butterfly's drumsticks can impact the fate of thousands of distant universes.

This Lammas Eve’s Night, King Oberon and Queen Paulette are celebrating the 25th birthday of their children, Prince Random and Princess Mirelle. You are invited as a member of the House of Oberon to partake and share in the glad tidings.

It is said we, of the Blood of the Unicorn, are all connected. There is a ripple effect. The actions of the one of us can affect the future for us all. Even the seemingly insignificant gesture, careless action, or deliberate insult can make a huge difference. More ...

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This game is designed to be a stand alone event and also the beginning of a potential serial game. Players may choose to be a daughter/son or grandchild of Oberon that is in the Amber Series. The Amber story to date is canon but there are more secrets than Corwin told of the kingdom's past. Please contact Craig - calj at mts.net for character creation information.
