"But then, what can any man really know of that which lies within a scion of Amber?" - The Guns of Avalon
Welcome to Scions of Amber! An Amber Diceless RPG Campaign based in the same campaign world as Center of All Things, but over a dozen centuries later, in Amber time. It has been over a thousand years since The Interruption and Brand's Solution. The Council rules Amber, as it has for centuries, with few changes, but they rule uneasily amidst increasing unrest and political dissatisfaction. The Jewel of Judgement has been found, not by Amber, but by Astrid, the Sorceress of blighted Corilaine. Bert, former informal leader of the Council of Amber wields the Jewel on behalf of them. With Julian's death, Arden is free from the yoke of their Elven oppressors. But who will rule Arden in his stead? Chaosian houses manipulate each other and now realize their assassination of the potential Queen of Chaos, Sorani Swayvill might not have been successful as they thought. From Arden to Corilaine, from Chaos to the Fae Lands, the fate of the multiverse is in the hands of the Scions of Amber. This game is not accepting new players.
Welcome to Eight Princes in Amber! An Amber Diceless RPG Campaign based on Nine Princes in Amber with one major difference. The bullets that put Corwin into the lake also put him into a grave. Who actually killed Corwin? How will this impact the event of Nine Princes? Well, we'll find out in Eight Princes in Amber. The Shadows are growing strange. Oberon is missing. The redheads have been conspicuously absent from Amber. Eric consolidates his grip on the throne, as the current protector, supported by Julian, who rules Arden, Gerard and Caine, who both rule the seas as Admirals of the Fleet. Rebma is suspicious of Eric, Benedict is presumed dead, and Random is having a great time staying away from the rest of the family. Flora makes a horrible discovery on her Shadow called Earth. As for Deirdre? Who knows. Most of the Princes don't care. The one who would have is now dead. After a failed attack on Amber, Bleys has paid with his life. His golden sword is on the wall in Julian's tent. Was there a blood curse? How does Julian have a wall in his tent? Who killed Corwin? Not currently accepting new players.
Recent Site Updates
4/7 Added Vitta to NPC page.
4/9 I cleaned up the Top Bar. Mystique has a new picture, since I duplicated it elsewhere.
4/8 Added Macaria, resized a few photos on the 4th gen page.
4/8 If you go the Arden page click on Garou. I added a dozen or more Garou to that page, plus some of the scary creatures Durance recently fought.
4/11 Added the Erins to the NPC page. Also started to add the Houses of Chaos, as they move closer to beginning the Rite of Succession.
After ten years, this page is getting a little cluttered. I am beginning to delete old backstories and structure from characters who had limited play time in Center of All Things. Chaos Rules will be joining it soon. Fear not, I have saved the stories on my Google Drive.
One: New schedule is Monday through Friday, closing. So some posting during the week during the day, and probably not so much at night. Starts at the end of April. Currently my schedule is 12:15 to 9:15 Sunday and 1:15 to 10:15 Monday through Thursday. Experience has been administered for participation and if applicable, winning in annual Ray Bracketology. Congrats Ray!
Two: Scions of Amber takes place in the same Universe as Center of All Things, but considerably in the future. Eight Princes in Amber is running as well, with posting when I can post.
Three: To be proactive (regarding storage), I am removing some of the pages that were in Center of All Things, starting with backstories for characters who were not played for very long. Although they will be removed from this site, I will still keep them in case anyone ever wants them.
Posting is here: start
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, Jishi is dead, and Amber, Chaos, the Shadow Council and House Talon are in a four way war. Zhuren is allegedly doing the Serpent's Will, and the Great Houses are either destroyed or fled. Erbam is under attack and the node containing Phyrexia has been destroyed by the horrifying actions of the Shadow Council. 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 campaign has ended.
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 is on a quest to rescue the woman he loves, deep in Rebma 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 has ended.
