A group of people, living unrelated lives in a variety of dissimilar worlds, discovers that each has something in common with the others. There is a secret from their pasts, something momentous that will bring them together to fight a desperate battle against the forces of darkness. For each of them is a piece to a puzzle called Amber.
"Amber in Pieces" is a game I wrote for a group of players, some of whom were not familiar with the Amber books. This game is designed to be a good starting place for anyone new to Amber, but it's also a game where an experienced player can start a new character whose history is not yet written. At the start of the game, all player-characters will be 0-level characters living in Shadow worlds, but there will be a point in game play where players can give their characters Amber-level attributes and powers.
