I'm in withdrawal and not happy about it.

So here are the game sparks so far for 2009:

1. The Soft Cimmerian: 'Go Ask Alyse'

A team of the Rebman Aoife (Gallants of the Glass) enter the Afanc Glass to question Alyse, find the resting place of Lir's bones (stolen by the Chaosi several centuries past) and steal back the Vorpal Blade from a cunning guisel. Once in the Labyrinth, the Aoife find the Cheshire Puss in the midst of exploring R'lyeh to wake the Great Ones to destroy the Fomoire, but this waking will undo a balance 1600 years old.

Once more, the clever Aoife act to save the foundations of Rebma!

2. Changing Hands

The war is over and Gerard is no longer regent. Random is restoring the Golden Circle. His elder sibs are in Chaos hammering out the Patternfall Treaty.

Your team takes shadow rutters from key family members and explores the shadows Chaos has handed back to Amber after occupation.

How dangerous is that? Find out.

3. Cobalt Charter

Still more daring exploits of the secret charter.

4. Argent Rose: City of the Dead

Still more adventure of the Corwin cousins.

5. Stairway Perilous!

According to the oldest children of Oberon, the Faiella-Bionin was constructed in a single night.

No one knows how this monumental engineering feat was accomplished by Queen Faiella, except that she had secret relationships with strange allies in Shadow. Now the land bridge to Rebma is failing.

Only thirty percent of Rebma's inhabitants are actually able to survive the watery depths because of their Athanor heritage. If the bridge fails, it is expected that almost seventy thousand people could perish.

Evacuation has started. There may be nine hours before tragedy fully strikes. The PCs must discover the secrets of Faiella and her phantom engineers as quickly as possible or join the almost impossible task of saving the strongest allies Amber has.

Mechanics/Restrictions: Pre-gens, system varies from Amber DRPG standard. GM prefers Players select Elders before game start and e-mail request to include 'why' that Elder.

Oberon is King. Lora is Queen. Delwin and Sandmorel are teens. Elders chosen are all those older than Delwin and Sand. Finndo and Osric are dead.

Character Generation: Pregenerated

Has anyone tried running rpg sessions in second life?
...she opened the brass lid to tap and mix the sand, and an icy draft swirled around the inside of the craft until she closed the thing again. The draft had a sea scent to it, salty and sharp.
"All mirrors lead to Rebma," she said, as though it were an axiom.

If only every weekend were Ambercon. I wouldn't live as long but I'd die happy.

disclaimer: i haven't signed up yet for ACUS

So in the very now I need to think of 4 games I could run.
If one was
Cobalt Charter
and one was
Agents of the Argent Rose

what else do you want to see this year?

this question is also open to those over age 18 not going to ACUS, void where prohibited by local law
I now have a tag for the old 'grand affair' livejournal stuff
many of the links still work
Just sayin'

I've been working over a year for a new firm and it is a beautiful thing. Creative people, dedicated and full of interest in doing good things.

In the last year, I've:

  • sketched concepts for a high-rise condo that might become a project
  • done a branch bank
  • started a church historic renovation
  • done design management of the only casino to be built in Pittsburgh
  • have complete management of a brand-new corportate HQ campus on 100+ acres

What's not to like?

...the only downside is I feel like I haven't paid as much attention to you folks. I hope I can share my good wishes to all of you for the holiday season.

something bad happened between my basement router and my wireless router
they've broken off talking to each other

mostly not fixed
Sharing a tunnel with a lethal drilling rig: priceless.
