Boardroom

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 ...

Kung Fu Hijinks from the Rowdiest Bar on the Stair!

The patrons of the Slug are asked to help rescue a Pilgrim who is trying to bring important religious scrolls back home from a distant land. His escorts were all Immortals on the outs back home and now they have lost the Monk somewhere on the Stair. Seeking a place to drown their sorrows, they happen upon the one drinking hole that might hold an answer.

(The tales of The Slug pay loving homage to Spider Robinson's Callahan's Place series as well as a few other pop-cultural artifacts here and there.)

LoGaS is great, right? A breath of new life to an old and beloved system?
Yes but...

I miss the Amberites.

So....

This is a new campaign set in the LoGaS universe with LoGaS mechanics, but the chief NPCS are the elder Amberites, modified to fit.

There will be lots of political intrigue, and lots of room for characters to develop their own agendas. There will be big, world-threatening plots, and lots of side-plots/plotting. In short, its all that you love about Amber campaigns, but with the new life of a different Multiverse.

Intrigued?

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Character creation will be part of the game; just give some thoughts to a personality ahead of time. LoGas knowledge helpful but not necessary. Some familiarity with the elder Amberites is likewise helpful.
