"The two of you? Against both Amber and the Courts of Chaos? What do you hope to achieve? How do you plan to further this notion of balance?"
"We are not alone," she said, "and the plan is not ours." -Random and Dara, The Courts of Chaos
The world outside your window is a lie.
It is nothing more than a shadow of reality. The real world is ruled by squabbling, petty immortals that use the shadows as playthings in their games. You and your world mean nothing to them. They use it and worlds like it as a battleground and use you as disposable pawns. And all the while, these games upset the delicate balance of reality and blind them to the true horrors that threaten all existence.
The Inbetwixters will set things right. They know the Truth. They will not fade away. They wage their subversive guerrilla war across all Shadow, and unto Amber and Chaos itself.
Rise up. Resist. Rebel.
Characters are those rare few who have seen through the veils and know the truth. They have discovered bits of magic that work and have drawn the attention of the rebel prince Martin. He has recruited them to his rebel band and helped them gain greater power and knowledge of the true nature of existence. Together, they strive to maintain balance between order and chaos and fight the horrors that lurk beneath the Shadows.
Their cover is Martin's eccentric band touring Shadow.
