Priest. Noble. Thief. Adventurer. Whatever you were before doesn't matter now. You have a new life. You have taken a new name. You are something better now. You've joined the Raven Legion. For over a thousand years the Raven Legion has been the premier mercenary corps of the vast multiverse of Gossamer worlds. The Legion is the stuff of legend up and down the Escalara, the Grand Stair, and in the Gossamer worlds where it has seen action. An eclectic mix of sentient beings from across the breadth of known worlds, they are a fearsome fighting force making the multiverse a better place, one job at a time-provided the cause is just and the price is right. Do you have what it takes?

A mysterious Gossamer world has been discovered, a complex web of worlds held together by a complicated and fragile structure. It is also under siege by the ancient and powerful Dwimmerlaik. It is to this world that the Raven Legion has been dispatched.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game

The Raven Legion has given them a new chance on life to be someone new, someone better. Email Kit at Kitkindred@gmail.com and Erik e@spikard.com for chargen instruction. Pregen Raven Legionnaires will also be provided upon request. This is a shared world game with The Temper of Heroic Hearts.

1,ooo years ago, the terrible Dwimmerlaik nearly conquered and destroyed the gossamer worlds. They faced solitary worlds, alone and unprotected. Vulnerable worlds with no strong leadership to defend them.

Should the Dwimmerlaik return, they will not find scattered defenseless worlds along the Grand Stair ripe for conquest. No, instead, they will find worlds united and strengthened by their part in the Ascendancy.

The Ascendancy is now the greatest empire in the multiverse. It grows in power and size every day. Worlds will be made safe, lest they become a beachhead for the enemy. The Ascendancy will grow larger and more powerful, for the good of all.

The Conciliatore are those honored to defend the Ascendancy. Handpicked by Lord Bastiano, they are his greatest warriors. They will keep the Ascendancy strong, no matter the cost.

In the book Jack the Ripper saved the world, at Ambercon 2008 it was Long John Silver. The world is again in jeopardy; will you save it or help bring about its demise? This game is based on the Roger Zelanzy book of the same name. Knowledge of the book is not required, but will help convey the theme and pacing. Players take on any iconic character from history or fiction (the Great Detective, the Man of Steel, the deadly robot from the future, the eccentric millionaire, etc.) and decide whether they wish to bring about the end of the world, or save it. The players’ actions during the course of October determine the fate of the world on Halloween!

SPACE FOR ANY 3 TO 7 PLAYERS

Are you on the Global Frequency? What is the Global Frequency? Some call it an Urban Myth, some say it’s a Faerie Tale and some call it a world conspiracy. What it is, is a world-wide independent intelligence organization, a rapid emergency response team and a private defense force all rolled into one. They deal with the threats that the world’s governments don’t want you to know about and can't handle themselves. They know trouble's coming before anyone else does. There are 1001 operatives on the Global Frequency, Intelligence Operatives, former Special Ops soldiers, ex-Cops, Scientists, Athletes. If you are an expert in your field, whatever it may be, you could be called on by the Global Frequency. You could be called on to save the world. Wait, hear that, that special ring-tone, you’d better answer it, they're calling you. You are on the Global Frequency.

Global Frequency is a game set in our world and our time. It is a gritty and messed up world, like ours is and you are its protectors. You are the agents of the Global Frequency called upon to stop a catastrophe or clean up the mess after one. Secretly and without fanfare. You handle the situations that no one else can.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Character creation rules will be using James Arnoldi's Key 2.0 rules. I will send them out. You play experts in your field, examples Scientist, Athlete, Soldier, Detective, etc.... Minor psychic abilities may be allowed, ask me. I would like character's done at least one week before the Con. Tymen VanDyk tymen@rogers.com

FULL

In a world that has turned back from the brink of annihilation and the edge of the Singularity both, Queen Victoria rules the Empire of America. Europe is a transgenic nightmare, and top hats, spats and bustles are fashionable.

The technology to turn any random hydrocarbon chain into good food is cheap and plentiful - and artificially locked so that orphans have to work 80 hour weeks just to eat. A group of Anarchists and troublemakers have a Modest Proposal for another way to feed the poor.

The Nano-Victorian Future is a loose, episodic series - you don't need to have played in a previous game to join in.

The Nano-Victorian Future; A world of goggles, airships made of diamond, corsets and nanotech frock coats. A world where steampunk meets cyberpunk for high tea and memory implants.

Characters are built using 150 points if created before the con, 130 if created at the con. The game uses non-Amber rules as explained at the wiki's char gen page.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Contact the GM if you want to build your character before the con.

See to your gear, the call has gone out again. We ride.
