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 holding down the fort in Amber, and will no doubt be under attack before long. Flora and Bleys might have survived, and Dalt has plans. Plans which place him on the throne of Amber. Shayde returns from a top secret mission to the Courts of Chaos, and Ash, long in self-exile, is moving in the Shadows, too. 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. Can the players thwart the will of Dalt, of Swayvill, of the Serpent? Or will they simply die with the rest, and then forevermore, Chaos Rules! Effective now…Since this game is limited duration, the number of players is being frozen, as this game will conclude at the end of 2014.
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. Don't hold your breath looking for more updates, they will not come for months.
One: My current schedule is 2:45p to 11:15p Sunday through Thursday.
Two: The campaign is now five years old, as of June 26th.. All good things must come to an end. Magnus and Khalon will be having their stories finish in October. 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.
