You are the children of Amber, just beginning to learn your way in a myriad of shadows and lies. The game is set in the “pre-history” of Amber when Oberon was king and many of the “elders” were still young.
This game will be set primarily in Amber and the Golden Circle, at least for the initial stages. Once a character or two has managed to walk the pattern and start exploring shadows beyond these, things will get more expansive.
Disclaimer: The original kernel idea for this game comes from a convention game, but I'm deviating a lot from that because I honestly don't remember it well enough. :)
