Welcome to the Center of All Things! An Amber Diceless RPG Campaign based on the premise that Amber, as referenced in the books, is truly the Center of All Things. Amber is a kinder, gentler Amber, or was until Brand became King. Most of the family nonsense has stopped, and Brand rules with an apparently open hand, but his magicks monitor and see everything. He has vowed that no enemy, or friend, will ever damage the Pattern again. Chaos is under the hand of the politically masterful Zhuren Sawall, who rules with his sister Jishi as Queen. Zhuren is allegedly doing the Serpent's Will, and the Great Houses are either destroyed or fled. The Fae and Celestial Courts are very much involved in things, as is the Kingdom of Erbam, which was locked away for so long by Oberon. The Shadow Council, the Arthashastras and the Barimens, plus a few others, some known and some unknown, all continue their machinations, plots and sometimes just surviving, while a gaggle of Oberon's old enemies, recently freed from their imprisonment, are having an influence on things as well. This game centers around Amber, and specifically the Player Characters. This game will end in the next few months, probably in December.

Welcome to Chaos Rules! A limited duration Amber Diceless RPG Campaign based on Amber losing Patternfall. Most of the Elders are dead. Gerard is dead. Flora lives, and maybe Bleys. Dalt has paid for his sins with his life. Shayde returned from a top secret mission to the Courts of Chaos, and Ash, long in self-exile, is in Amber, basically in charge. As for Chaos, they are celebrating the destruction of most of the Royal Family, and preparing to cross the Shadows for a final battle, this time in Amber's front yard. They took the Castle once. Can they do it again? Can the players thwart the will of Swayvill, of the Serpent? Or will they simply die with the rest, and then forevermore, Chaos Rules! This limited duration game will conclude at the end of 2014.
Welcome to Scions of Amber! A new campaign starting in early 2015. It has been two thousand years since The Interruption and Brand's Solution. Updates will start appearing more often, and in preparation for this game, I will be taking down some information from Center of All Things, to reflect the fog of history. Some history will be intentionally wrong (by me) reflecting historical inaccuracies, or downright propaganda by whoever wrote the histories.
Going Forward I will run something after Chaos Rules. Several people have made suggestions, and the possibilities exist for: Modern Day Cthulhu, Amber, Vampire, Zombie or something else.
One: My current schedule is 2:45p to 11:15p Sunday through Thursday.
Two: Center of All Things is over six years old, as of June 26th.. All good things must come to an end. Khalon's and Magnus's stories have ended, and Oscar and Khelendos's will be ending very soon. The Center of All Things will come to an end sometime in the foreseeable future. As of right now, I'm thinking no later than December. After Chaos Rules!, I will start an as of yet undecided game that will NOT be an Amber game. But for now…Now running: Chaos Rules!
Three: Scions of Amber will start after the completion of Center of All Things, whenever that will be. It will take place in the same Universe as Center of All Things, but considerably in the future. Few of the people from CoAT will be around for this game. Look for pages and stories to appear sporadically. I would expect PC character creation to be done sometime in December, but you are welcome to start working on it now. I have now opened the OOC and Backstory forum for Scions.
