Artful Design

David Blackwell
Slot 8 - Sun 7pm-12am - 5 hours

In the days before, the great King Oberon came to the slopes of Kolvir. It was by his hand and his will that the shining city rose. He forged alliances of blood and fealty, and sent his scions forth to gather unto the Eternal City, a Golden Circle, expanding its implacable influence until none might stand against him. If Amber is the one true realm, then surely fate would permit no other course, but perhaps his ambition was assured not by destiny, but by Oberon’s artful design.

Players will portray the children of Oberon in an early Amber, before the foundations of the castle were laid, before the caverns under Kolvir were worked, before the great docks were built, and the roads and terraces and shops of the city… is Amber fated for greatness, your decisions may make all the difference.

This is intended to be an ongoing campaign. Hopefully there is enough interest for a serious game on Sunday night. Anyone with an interest in co-GMing, and portraying Oberon, Dworkin or Oberon's wife should contact David Blackwell at

This is an Alternate Amber in the sense that players will create characters who are children of Oberon and have grown up in the early years of Amber. It is not precisely a play the elders game though if successful it may become one in the fullness of the campaign. It is a game where player choices are likely to profoundly affect the direction of the story.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Character creation will take place during the session, and will be handled with a modified attribute auction. This is not a throne war, though the process may imply a little sibling rivalry. Bring an open mind and a ready wit.
