The Darkest Days

In Between Season Update - Bonus Available!

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for wrapping up the wedding conversations by yesterday!  I know that it was a bit of an imposition for some of you and I want to make sure you are all aware of how much I appreciate it!

Today is my first day back in the office catching up on e mail since Friday, so I am digging through a bit of a mountain of information – both Amber and work related!  It is going to take me some time to get organized and send out meaningful e mails. 

While I do that… let's play a game!  Everyone should guess the number of Amber E Mails I received between Friday at 2:00 PM and Tuesday at 8:00 PM.  Guesses should be submitted via e mail and should be submitted before Monday April 2 at 10:00 AM.

The player that guesses closest to the correct number of e mails will receive 2 Bonus Good Stuff!  In the event that there is a tie, all winners will receive 1 Bonus Good Stuff instead!

The winner(s) will be announce on Monday April 2!

Happy Easter Everyone!


Congratulations to Nicole who wins the Bonus 2 points of Good Stuff with her guess of 70 E Mails!

The correct number of e mails was 67!  Thanks to everyone for playing!

Season Finale: 2/4

Thank you all for the kind words regarding season 1 — I am sure that if nothing else, you will find season 2 a little less dark and creepy!

Please remember that the final diary entries (for everyone except Jason) are due NO LATER than Sunday 2/11.  I am sure that everyone would like to keep the 10 bonus points going into next season!

Session 24: January 28

I imagine something exciting will happen during this session — we certainly left it in an exciting place!

Erich, Jason, and Heidi are clambering down the slopes toward the cave (and possibly Wixer!)

Paul is racing down the slope following Brand (and the jewel!) towards the start of the primal pattern.  Farther up the slope, Nicole, Artemis, and Jack stand ready to intercept the 'forest spirit' Phais as she charges towards Brand.  Kate and Stephen also stand on that side of the mountain.

Down below, Vecna has seen Brand and Paul….

Session 23: January 21
3 sessions left until the break!
Session 22: January 7

Remember that there is bonus work to do over the Christmas/New Year's break!

All characters in Amber should summarize the plan to infiltrate the Palace along with their own character's personal feelings towards the plan and what they intend to do once the plan is engaged.

Reward for completing your homework will be determined soon!

Session 21: Dec 17

The Triumphant (?) Return to Amber!

Sorry again for the last minute cancellation this past weekend.  I was asleep by 9:00!  Looking forward to getting back to a regular schedule.  

For those of you who have not turned in your diary for last session (you know who you are!) I expect that to be turned in ASAP to eliminate the bad stuff penalty!

Looking at the calendar, it appears that these are the 5 remaining session dates:

* Dec 17

* Jan 7

* Jan 21

* Jan 28

* Feb 4

We will not be playing on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, or Jan 14 (I will be in Kansas visiting Jake!)

I believe things are progressing to the point where you will be successful in finishing the season on time!  In fact, there is every chance that everything goes right and you liberate Amber in January (well… I guess that we will see how that goes…)

 Now then… as is Christmas tradition, you will be gifted with a bit of information about your character.  All you have to do is send me an e mail with your understanding of the plan to infiltrate Amber (who is doing what!) as well as any specific plans you have for yourself.  In return, I will provide general information for you on your standing in ONE of the 4 stats.

(Example: if you tell me you want to know how you stand in Strength, I may tell you that out of the current generation, you are tied for the third rank!)

(Paul, since you are running a zero point character at present — you get your Holiday Gift for free!  just let mew know what stat you want info on!)


Session 18: Nov 19

Let's see if I remember where everyone is…

Erich and Artemis are riding through Arden working their way back to the Valley of Garnath

Paul and Stephen are receiving kudos for the successful defense of Begma with Jason… wait, where did Jason go?

Kate is heading into Amber, disguised along with Edgar/Heidi and some woodsmen

And Nicole has just abandoned Kate and left for parts unknown

Session 17: November 12

It will have been two weeks since we played — sorry, the cold put me on my back for 4 days!

Here is a quick recap of everyone's starting locations:

Arden:   At Julian's primary encampment in Arden is Kate, Nicole, and Erich along with Artemis, Benjamin, a host of Solars, and a handful of woodsmen.  Also somewhere in Arden is an angry Skeletal Dragon wanting to eat the aforementioned characters

Kartakass:    Jason is rushing out of Kartakass with the unconscious body of Davin slung across his shoulders.  He is heading towards a rendezvous with Callista, Jack/Usil, Johann, and the crew.

Begma: The PC's in Begma find themselves in very different circumstances.  Paul is safely ensconced behind the city walls directing the defenses against the besieging armies.  On the other hand, Stephen finds himself in combat with Kas himself and it is not going well.

Sea Shadow Lanes near Amber: Heidi finds herself losing consciousness under the ocean surface with no air supply.  Highly unlikely she will find this a healthy combination of circumstances.
