    Welcome Shadow Walker, to my offerings regarding Roger Zelazny's Chronicles of Amber.

    Not to worry, the artwork of my site is still here. This is just a fast loading signpost for finding things on my pages. Trumps are in the Family Portrait gallery. In addition to expansion notes for Zelazny's Amber, you will find images of Amber castle, hints to the fantastic Shadows of the Empire of the Gleaming Banner, links and info for the PBeM 'Strange Bedfellows', as well as Courts of Chaos material. I've included a menu device at the bottom of most pages so you can skip around without coming back to this page.

    This entry page points to the full content of my site, including links to other Amber sites which I find the most useful and pleasing in design/concept. Enjoy the Golden Circle, wander freely, many folk have packed the Circle with great ideas for gaming or expanding the possibilities of the novels and short stories. There's no way I can list it all so take a look at Golden Circle Resources below where I point to the most useful Amber link sites.

    Eternal City is the name of my own Face To Face campaign. I have also run games at AmberCon US and AmberCon North, but this is subject to change. Click the 'Ambercons' image below to find out if there is a Convention being planned near you.

    As always, my thanks to all who wish to comment on what they find here. To eTrump me, click the link. Please credit me with images borrowed from my pages.

    • The Argent Realm of Corwin's Pattern will return to AmberCon North, see the link to AmberCons. This is a serial game, not a continuing campaign. That means the background supports characters who "come and go" and each 'story' is contained within a single gaming session.
