Last year, the Box of Idiots™ provided the alcohol to get Amber smashed. This year, it's time to be more responsible. In the middle of a thirty-six hour shift in the emergency room, will you be ready with the cottage cheese for a man missing his gallbladder? What about a man choking on a wood chip? Or someone with their organs on the outside? See all this and more in the emergency room of the Amber County General Hospital. In the vein of such games as "Oberon's Gallbladder" and "Doctor Jellyfingers: Professional Proctologist," come see the "Monty Python" of Ambercon and more of their juvenile potty humor in this latest moronic classic.

It was the best of times, and everybody knew it. Amber paid a terrible price in the Great War, but a sturdy peace was forged from it. Ghostwheel and Jale have bound Amber and Chaos together in a web of mutual dependence, powering a technological revolution -- and a threat of mutually assured destruction.
Now an unknown navy blockades Amber's harbor, while an army marches on Chaos. Has a new power stepped in to shatter the peace? Can you put the genie back in the bottle, or is this the beginning of the end?

Break out the needle guns, it's time for another Jerry Cornelius/Amber crossover! The year is 1976 and the Spaghetti God (better known as the Logrus) is not a Happy Bunny. All is not well in the garden that is his London. Chaos threatens his Order and this Chaos has a name -- it is Punk Rock. The battle lines are drown and society crumbles. It could spell the End of Everything. And what is Jerry C., the champion of the Logrus, doing about this? What he does best -- he parties in the ruins.
So once again the Spaghetti God has to call in the cavalry. Get ready to strap on your vibro guns, pull on your bondage wear and do battle yet again to save that unique Amber that is Cornelius.

The King is dead. After ruling for more than 40 years from Lost Vegas, Elvis Presley has left America without its leader. Who will become king? With every sword-brandishing, guitar-playing dreamer; every heartbroken, gun-toting hero; and every self-absorbed, power-hungry dictator on the yellow brick road to Vegas, it's a crowded path to the top.
The road to Vegas is littered with would-be kings. Sandstorms, nuclear waste, cannibals, bowlers, groupies and Russian soldiers (a lot of Russian soldiers) all stand in their way. Death waits in the Wastelands, ready to shoot down any rising stars. It will take more than just talent to make it all the way to Vegas. It will take courage, determination, and most of all attitude. For one thing is certain...only the coolest will be King.

Children of Chaos. Your heritage was realized upon finding the ancient ruins of Amber. You have each had to make hard decisions as to what your life means now that you know the truth. The House of Barimen now seems like a facade, a place of lies, much like the whole of Chaos. At what cost has the Truth been revealed to you. You felt it in your soul when Rethwyn's blood spilled across the Pattern. Now Benedict has commanded you to retrieve the Eye of the Serpent and aid him in repairing the stain. Betray all of Chaos, all that you have known and loved for this weakly shining light in a world forgotten by most.
A rescue mission to save a home you have never known. To pluck the Eye from the Heart of Chaos and return to set the universe right again. When do the Children stop paying for the sins of their Fathers?

"Hey you, get Prince Victor - his father is dead, he should at least have the decency to come have breakfast." -- Prince Edmond to ?
"Well, we'll figure that out after we eat and find out what he died of." -- Prince Johann to ?

"(Cat's) going to piss on his grave, too." -- GM
"She's going to have to get in line.... Heck, you should build an outhouse on top of it." -- Lucas
Let's try to find out what this whole mess has been about together, shall we? Watch the universe unfold before your very eyes, as the layers of unreality are stripped back to reveal.... Well, that would be telling. :-) Potentially the last chapter in this continuing campaign.

"That's not a bad idea." -- Meggan

"Amber - with rivets!" High Adventure in the Amber Steam Age. You had been stationed at a key position in our supply lines during the invasion of Chaos. Too young and inexperienced to be used at the front, you cooled your heels taking care of an important but unsatisfying task. After the storm that ripped through reality after Patternfall, many things were, well, different. Imagine an Amber where technology is powered by steam engines, where people are civilized to one another, where dragons, magick and faerie races coexist with technological marvels, where dastardly villains and criminal masterminds plot to take over the one true world, and where the decent folk of the family thwart their every move. You are knee-deep in this place from the moment you arrive. What has happened to the backstabbing, conniving people you knew and loved?

The universe is young; the Pattern is young; in fact, everything you know is but early in time's progression...anything is possible and all is right with Oberon's First Generation. But there's a touch of restlessness...a sense that all is not quite what one would expect in reality...and then you begin to notice things...that do not quite ring true.

Moire is dying, with no heir. She has her preferences, but they are likely to be washed away by public opinion and the force of private powers. Who will rule in Rebma? Llewella, by sister's rule? Martin -- if he could be found -- by blood? Or someone from the Royal Family of Amber?

Based off the Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny, the hit 80's TV show, ShadowQuest attracted a large cult following. Its following did not stop it from being cancelled after a two-year run, however, and its principal stars have been unable to get a decent acting job since. Some have been able to land off-off-off Broadway roles or similar fare, but most have had to make due with guest appearances at science fiction conventions or Ambercons filled with fans of the series and (shudder) role-players.

The end of high school looms nigh for the Sunnydale High Class of '99; and what with prom, graduation, college applications, and the prospect of the Mayor becoming a demon and destroying everything in sight, you'd think you have enough to worry about, wouldn't you? Nah. The world doesn't work that way. In fact, you're about to meet some pretty strange people who say the world as you know it isn't even real, but just a "Shadow." And they have some interesting things to tell you about the origins of the Slayer, what happened to Angel on his trip to Hell, just who the Watchers' Council thinks they are anyway, and how that "one girl in all the world" thing went a little wonky in this generation. Trouble is, they may not all tell you the same things. Who do you believe (if anyone)? And what are you going to do about it?

"On the one hand, there's really no one more trustworthy than Brand. On the other hand, there's really no one less trustworthy than Brand." -- J.P. Brannan to the group
"Please refine your question. Leviathan understands, the GM needs clarification." -- GM to ?
Bring or make a young adult Amberite or Chaosian, who does not work and play well with others...the kind Aunt Fiona thinks should go stand in the corner. How seriously you take the corner -- and what condition it's in at the end -- are strictly your affair. Heads we do "The Breakfast Club," tails we do "Apocalypse Now"...and it'll probably stand on its edge.

Submission brought pain. Pain brought hope. Hope brought light. But light, like the flicker of a candle in the night, can be so ephemeral. Now the darkness eats at the soul of the Last Amber, beats at the walls of the crumbling castle; The King of Cards seeks his final sacrifice. Where once Submission brought hope, now only Domination can make that Candle of Hope a Burning Beacon for the Future. But can you step back having once tasted the beauty? Can you dominate without stepping into the void that is in your soul? The King of Cards dwells within that void and beckons to the weak. A dark game at the End of All Ambers. This is a crossover game and a sequel to last year's "Submission" game. Knowledge of last year's game is not required. Please note that this game will be exploring dark adult themes and is recommended for broad minded players.

"Many years has it been since I visited that sleepy New England town of Amber, with its gabled roofs, its baroque churches, and the timeless campus of Oisen University, whose scholarly facades hide tomes with dark and unspeakable mysteries. No, I have not returned to the dark little town since that ill-fortuned October day that the Doom came to Amber...."
Inspired by DC Comic's "The Doom That Came to Gotham" and Roger Zelazny's A Night in the Lonesome October, this game casts the players as the prominent residents and visitors to the town of Amber, Massachusetts, working towards the day when the stars align and the Elder Gods may return. Some seek to stop the return, some seek to aid, while others have agendas of their own.

It is the night of the Great Conjunction. Those interested in such things have come to see the shimmering city of Tir-na Nog'th, expected to be more 'real' than seen in a generation. With hushed voices and awe everyone waits for the moon to break through. Some are ready to mount the ghost stairs to that mysterious place to ask their questions and see the wonders of the City of Spirit and Light. There, the light breaks through, only it's not there. Tir is gone! Random, perplexed but not particularly worried, asks you to look into it.

"Let's destroy it as we land." -- Maggie
"That's one way to describe Jayne. 'Interesting'" -- Kris Fazzari
"In the Chinese curse sort of way." -- GM Chris
"So you're flying from Southern France to Lyons firing at random topiaries along the way?" -- GM Chris to Philippe
"You didn't warn me about the crew launcher!" -- GM Chris to GM Sol
"My villains have more respect for life." -- GM Chris
"That's OK, we only launched Rámon." -- Kris Fazzari
"I've got the cannon, I've got the dress of the death, I've got the
crew launcher and I've got God on my side." -- Maggie
"Not after you put on the thong, honey." -- GM Chris
"I'm on my viewing deck with my scepter of office." -- Philippe
"That's a wrench." -- R.F. McCaughey
"No, it's the control rod from a train." -- Cal Rea
"There's no way the villains can kill us as fast as we can kill ourselves." -- Bill Gulstad to the group
"I brought little Rámon." -- Rámon to GM Sol
"Isn't little Rámon attached to you?" -- Wendi Strang-Frost
"When (the brass box) is ours, you can draw it." -- Matthew Richardson
to Wendi Strang-Frost

"She's not armor-plated, she's wearing pink." -- Maggie
"I throw a grenade at Gustav!" -- Philippe to GM Chris
"And the destruction begins." -- Kris Fazzari
"You only hurt the ones you love." -- Eddie to the group, after braining Philippe with her measuring tape
"You mean Jayne isn't wearing red hot pants?" -- GM Chris
"Rámon is." -- Sean
"I think the GM just took SAN loss." -- GM Chris
"So Eddie is slowly letting the air out of Philippe?" -- Kris Fazzari to Wendi Strang-Frost
"The sailing competition will happen, assuming we don't find a way to destroy the ocean." -- Bill Gulstad to the group
"Southern France declares war on Gustav. Not his country, just Gustav." -- Wendi Strang-Frost to the group
"I must help Eddie. Or Philippe. Probably Philippe, he wants to blow things up." -- Jayne to GM Sol
"It's a big, black thing that's not ours. Or black." -- Jayne to Eddie and Philippe
"Something's going on and I'm going to start killing people." -- Rámon to GM Chris
"Rámon is my friend. Ever since I joined the guard, Rámon has made me feel...superior." -- Yves defending Rámon to the group
"What was that explosion?" -- Maggie
"It was Señora Captain's temper." -- Rámon
"We're sort of like the Dirty Pair, only there's more of us." -- Sean Frost to the group
"We destroy more accidentally before breakfast..." -- GM Sol
"Then most people destroy in a life time." -- Jill Pritts
"You know what the punishment is in the Guard for slaughtering our
allies?" -- Lorianne
"Promotion?" -- Rámon
"This is the dagger (Rámon) got stabbed with before, right?" --
"Yeah, and that's a real sore spot." -- GM Chris

the chase." -- GM Chris to GM Sol

"Some stupid man said, 'Be quiet woman,' and I had to shoot him." -- Jayne to the group
"Are you sure more destruction is called for now?" -- Cyrano
"Well, you can't half do a job." -- Maggie
"We'll see how your negotiations with the Prince go." -- Lorianne
"Not too well, given that these guys are about to bomb the castle." -- Jayne
"I'm going to put a knife to the Prince's throat to get him to listen
to me." -- Jayne to GM Sol
"Oh, that kind of negotiating." -- Kris Fazzari
Long ago, Caine killed Abel. He tried to deny it, he hid the body, but God knew. Caine was cursed and banished from Eden. The story does not end there. Caine left Eden for the land of Nod, where he founded the city of Enoch, and had a family. His children became the dynasty that ruled over the land for hundreds of years. Enoch, called Babylon by others, was a wondrous city, the center of the world. Now, you children of Caine, there are signs that Yahweh is coming. What will you do when God arrives?

"The mighty fighting force of cranky shepherds!" -- Simone Cooper to the group
"I have the beasts of burden, the dogs of war, and all weasels and ermine." -- Irad to the group
"'Frankly'? Can you even utter that word?" -- Irad
"I can be frank. Can you be peaceful?" -- Naamah
"I can be peaceful." -- Irad
"Then I can be frank." -- Naamah
"So, are we going to say madmen are holy, then?" -- Irad
"Not all of them. If they're sitting around eating bugs, they're not mine." -- Mehujael
"I think there should be mad holy men wandering the countryside." --
"Not so much touched by God as slapped." -- Enoch
"I'm inspiring a great contest of sports, with tossing of heavy
objects." -- Irad
"You mean each other." -- Enoch
"I had to seek Enoch's advice to prepare the bottles properly." --
"The bottles?" -- Adah
"The battles. To bottle the battles." -- Irad
"I don't understand what (Enoch) knows, but..." -- Irad to ?
"Neither does Enoch." -- Guy Gascoigne-Piggford
"Somebody get the god of war a Ritalin." -- Tubal to the group
"Naamah is a powerful god. He's influenced the GM." -- Enoch to the group
"Are you making sheep jokes again?" -- Seth
"The sheep jokes are self-perpetuating." -- Tubal
"I rule everybody for one-third of the day. That's fine." --
"That's more than most people will in their godlike lifetime." -- Irad
"I wonder why they choose now to come?" -- Enoch
"I do not wonder." -- Irad
"You do not care." -- Tubal
"You chose wisely for a Sunday game." -- Enoch
"Before my coming." -- Naamah
"Before makeup?" -- Irad, mis-hearing
"Before makeup! When everyone..." -- Mehujael
"...looked the same in the morning!" -- Irad
"But (Father) has us. And they do not have such as us." -- Adah
"No, but they have a horde." -- Tubal
"I don't like it when the GM is giggling." -- Tubal
"It may be that one of our brothers is already doing that." -- Naamah
"Well, (Father) wasn't sleeping when I saw him, because I talked to
him." -- Enoch
"You could have talked to him, but it wouldn't have done much good." -- Tubal
"We should build a great wall like the prow of a ship with a great
ram's head on it. Then it will split their forces, and we can hide behind
it and whack them on the head with a big stick!" -- Irad
"God of battle. Not tactics." -- Naamah
"Perhaps we will dream." -- Naamah
"Oh, no perhaps about it." -- Mehujael
"That is the dream that you all have. There are different details,
because of all your personalities, but you all dream of battle." -- GM
"Why am I not wearing my tunic?" -- Mehujael
"(The city) is buzzing with a sound you haven't heard for a long time."

"Babylon Needs Women!" -- GM
"Large women!" -- Irad...frequently...with great enthusiasm
"I appoint you god of brewing." -- Mehujael to Seth
"Thank you! I am god of sheep and brewing." -- Seth
"Just make sure to keep the two separate." -- Enoch
"And we will call (the priest) Bill." -- GM
"Further evidence that it is Sunday." -- Valerie Kessler
"Bill is a name. It will serve." -- GM
"I set that up at the beginning of the game. Because I knew I would have pathetic battle plans." -- Irad to ?
"Do we have magicians?" -- Enoch
"No." -- GM
"Can we get some real fast?" -- Enoch
"I know that our father has not been entirely forthwith with us about
our godly portfolios." -- Seth
"Our godly portfolios?" -- Irad
"He's nineteen. What do you want?" -- Tubal
"He tries. He really tries." -- GM
"How do I do this mythopoetically?" -- Mehujael
"How often to players say that in your games?" -- GM
"You could take the sand and make it into a spitball...no, wait, that's not mythopoetic. That's an example of what not to do." -- Irad
"What's Babylonian for 'chill pill'?" -- Enoch to ?
"How many times has Naamah told you that, and then taken all your money
in a card game?" -- Irad
"None." -- Tubal
"We have strange family values like honesty, loyalty, etc..." -- ?
"Yeah, the House of the Unicorn is like the Addams Family of Chaos." -- ?
Perhaps assaying the Logrus wasn't the wisest idea. Dr. Schloss is certain that your recovery is going splendidly, and that soon you'll be able to return home to Castle Amber. Dr. Frost coldly insists that recovery will only progress after you've abandoned these Amber-centric delusions of grandeur. What is a patient to do when two of Chaos' leading physicians can't agree on a course of treatment? For that matter, who is to say that a Chaosian doctor is right for you? You're an elder of Amber after all...aren't you?
"The first questions that come to you are, 'Why does my head hurt?', 'Why am I upside down?', and 'Whose butt is this?'." -- GM Matt to ?
"On a whim, I Trump myself." -- Sand
"On a whim, you have Trump defence" -- GM Matt
"The Frontal Lobotomy threat: use it or lose it." -- J.P. Brannan to ?
"From a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you...." Explore the true history of the fall of Avalon as we meet again with Oberon, Lintra, Clarissa, Benedict and the rest. Tune in this year, where you might hear Benedict say, "I'm not going down on the shmoo, I'm going down with the shmoo."
|Sasha Burdick:||Caine, then Eric|
"Everyone, I don't run this game. I just ride herd on it." -- GM
"She just straddles it and goes." -- Duane Spencer
"Corwin's off in his Shadow, playing god, stealing women away from the
men they love..." -- GM
"I love my job!" -- Corwin
"...Getting fat. Getting laid." -- GM, still describing Corwin's
"Not necessarily in that order." -- Paul Burdick
"I'm perfectly capable of handling myself. And I do so whenever I can't find a woman." -- Random to the group
"I have Alzheimer's." -- Oberon to the group, after he mixes up Benedict and Caine
"Can you find a Shadow where you're worshipped as second-best?" -- Benedict to Bleys
"I worry about Corwin's ability to do anything other than watch 'Days of our Lives.'" -- Oberon to Bleys and Caine
"Dad wants us to set Corwin on fire. With Eric." -- Bleys to Caine
"He wants you to set Corwin ablaze!" -- Paul Burdick
"There's an invisible person involved. I'll bet it's Lintra." -- Benedict to the group
"You feel a Logrus tendril tickle your butt." -- GM
"Fiona!" -- Bleys
"No, it's a Logrus tickle not a French tickler." -- Lisamarie Babik
"Do these pants make my ass look big?" -- Corwin
"It's not the pants." -- everyone else
"And you haven't given me my allowance this week!" -- Bleys
"How old are you?" -- Clarissa
"I'm four!" -- Bleys
"Were you born in a leap year?" -- Lisamarie Babik
"You see a man with a barmaid up against the wall." -- GM
"I already had her." -- Corwin
"Random, you feel an itching, burning sensation." -- GM
"That's OK, I've had my shots." -- Random
"Did the earth move for you too?" -- Random to the barmaid, after the wall collapses behind them
"Are you riding a schmoo or a horse?" -- GM
"I'm riding a schmoo." -- Benedict
"The horse looks better." -- GM
"I knew it was Lintra. I know by the smell." -- Benedict, going
through Lintra's lingerie drawer
"Eau de Hellmaid." -- Paul Burdick
"Eau m'god." -- Lisamarie Babik, in her best Valley Girl accent
"A wide-assed but handsome man is checking (Lintra) out." -- Lisamarie
Babik to Duane Spencer
"Oh wonderful. Corwin is being played by William Shatner." -- GM
"Lintra in the sky with diamonds." -- Lisamarie Babik, singing
"We always thought Benedict was just epileptic." -- Oberon to the group, regarding Benedict's periodic attacks on invisible opponents
"As long as I'm not sending (the Logrus) through the Pattern room, I'm OK." -- Clarissa to the group
"We're in disguise. You're Rick, I'm Bill." -- Bleys to "Eric" (Oberon
"I'm leaving." -- Caine
"I'm throwing him down, saying, 'What's my name, bitch!'" -- Lintra to the group, on how she makes love to Corwin
"Get off!" -- Corwin to Lintra "She's working on it." -- D.J. Hyland
"So now Corwin has a stick of butter: it's a warfare fight!" -- GM to the group, after Corwin summons Greyswandir
"Oh, that must be my invading army. Gotta go!" -- Lintra to Corwin
"I'm sure I've got a spell that will remove someone's clothes. I'm just not sure I want to use it on my brother." -- Random to the group
"We were bored. We thought we'd make your life hell for a little while." -- "Eric" to Corwin
"So that's how Brand figured out the blood on the Pattern trick." -- Kris Fazzari to the group, after Brand starts peeing on the Pattern
"I'm not telling the assassin that he's going to die." -- Caine
"That's always a good idea." -- GM
"There's too many Amberites in this Shadow. Something bad is bound to happen." -- Lintra to the group
"So Benedict's troops are hitting on the Amazons. 'Hey baby, are you
cold or are you just happy to see me?'" -- Kris Fazzari
"And there are sounds of slaughter in the streets." -- GM
"We're trying to figure out how to steal the Pattern. We can't roll it
up like a carpet." -- Brand to Bleys
"Turn the stone to carpet and then roll it up." -- Ian Ng
"Bleys Barimen SOOPER genius." -- Lisamarie Babik to the group
"Hey, if we can't move the Pattern, maybe we can move the rest of the castle." -- Brand to Bleys
"My children have flunked the test. I'm off to breed some more." -- Oberon to the group
"(I'm) invisibly groping the Amazons." -- Random
"After the second time you almost lose your hand, it occurs to you that maybe this isn't such a good idea." -- GM
"For every three of your men, five of the (Amazons) go down." -- GM to Benedict
"It's not very nice to call your Amazon warriors 'dogs.'" - Ian Ng
"Dey's all bitches." - D.J. Hyland
"(Benedict's) seen those motions before. It's almost like (the
Amazons) are fighting an invisible opponent." -- Kris Fazzari, after an
invisible Random begins attacking the Amazons
"Except this is a very random motion." -- Paul Burdick
"You notice I've brought in the bit and bridle from my horse." --
Benedict to Clarissa
"That is quite possibly the worst pickup line I've ever heard." -- D.J. Hyland
"He got it from Julian." -- Lisamarie Babik
"It worked with Morgenstern." -- Jill Pritts
"So Benedict is arranging a three-way with his ex-girlfriend and his father's girlfriend." -- Kris Fazzari to the group
"You get started. I'll catch up with you." -- Benedict to Corwin
"You two get started. I'll catch up with you. I kind of like to watch." -- Benedict to Clarissa and Lintra, a short time later
"I don't like you." -- Gérard to Brand
"He's smarter than I thought." -- Bleys
"I'm carrying the molasses, a keg of whipped cream, and the bit and
bridle." -- Benedict to the group
"The bric-a-brac?" -- Ian Ng, mishearing
"Here's what I call my Pattern sword." -- Benedict
"It's just a Shadow of your father's." -- Clarissa
"I lick myself clean." -- Random to GM
"Who knew Random was so flexible?" -- Lisamarie Babik
"Lots of women." -- Kris Fazzari
"I'm not an invisible opponent, I'm an invisible voyeur." -- Random
"I wasn't expecting invisible voyeurs. Does warfare help with that?" -- Benedict
"No, that's a psyche thing." -- GM
"You set your own city on fire. Children are running down the street
screaming." -- GM
"They can shield themselves with dead Amazons." -- Corwin
"The Amazons are on the opposite side of the city." -- GM
"So that's what shapeshifting is for." -- D.J. Hyland, speaking for Random as he watches Lintra, Clarissa and Benedict
"I will withhold my precious bodily fluids." -- Benedict
"I didn't need to know that." -- GM
"Oberon walks into the room." -- GM
"I'd say that's a downer for me." -- Benedict
"I want to teleport (Benedict) to the Amazon island, totally naked and covered in molasses and whipped cream." -- Oberon to GM
"If I'd been thinking, I'd have summoned a dragon to eat the Vikings, instead of setting the city on fire." -- Corwin to the group
"Corwin's not thinking too clearly. He's been drinking." -- everyone, at one time or another
"No son, that's not how you do that. Let me show you." -- Oberon to Benedict, intruding on the threesome
"I teleport myself to the Amazon island. Only mine are friendly Amazons." -- Benedict to GM
"Benedict's gotta sit on the wet spot." -- Lisamarie Babik to the group, after Paul Burdick spills a glass of water
"My next Shadow, I'm not going to let anyone know where it is." -- Corwin to the group
"It's a murder of schmoos." -- Lisamarie Babik, coming up with the
plural form of schmoo
"We decided last night that it's an assassination of Amberites." -- GM
"What do you mean, we?" -- D.J. Hyland
"Benedict's standing in front of the mirror, looking to see if his
butt's drooping." -- GM
"After an island full of Amazons, something's drooping." -- Duane Spencer
"Suddenly (Corwin's) butt doesn't look so big, does it?" -- Lisamarie Babik
"You have this uneasy feeling, like someone has walked across your grave. But that could be the midlife crisis." -- GM to Benedict
"Where is Corwin's favorite place? I head for the castle." --
"Are you sure you don't mean the brothel?" -- GM
"Aren't they the same thing?" -- D.J. Hyland
"There are hot marshmallow-covered children running screaming down the street." -- GM to Corwin
"I think the fluffernutter prostitutes beats anything I've seen so far. Except for Julian's blow-up deer." -- GM to the group
"Fluffernutter prostitutes." -- Lisamarie Babik
"Two great tastes in one." -- Jill Pritts
"Bet you can't eat just one." -- Paul Burdick
"Bleys casts his 'find plot' spell." -- D.J. Hyland
"There is no plot. You're destroying the city." -- GM
"If I was looking for Corwin, I'd go the brothel. But I go to the castle." -- Bleys to GM
"I use my warfare to leap out of the way of the falling castle." -- Bleys to GM
"You're trapped under the collapsing castle, and oh yeah, your leg is
broken." -- GM
"I regenerate it. I have a ring that will do that." -- Bleys
"OK, you now have a third leg." -- Ian Ng
"You'd think that would let you run 50% faster, but actually, it only slows you down." -- Lisamarie Babik
"Caine, what are you doing?" -- GM
"I'm searching Shadow for myself." -- Caine
"Someone asked you to take out the garbage again, didn't they?" -- GM
"(Caine) went to Caines-R-Us." -- Lisamarie Babik to the group
"I kill (my Shadow)." -- Caine
"You feel vaguely guilty." -- GM
"No, I don't." -- Caine
"I write 'Random' on my Shadow's body and leave it in a gutter." --
"It's a random killing." -- GM
"The Staypuff Marshmallow Man has been melted down into a pile of
molten-hot marshmallow goo." -- GM
"Good, that's taken care of." -- Corwin
"And the marshmallow dragon is now wandering around looking for other things to eat." -- GM
"I'm thinking about having him eat people with red hair." -- Corwin
"I hope someone summons the dragon's natural enemy, the graham cracker knight with a chocolate lance." -- D.J. Hyland
"Gee, the way my day is going you'd think I had 15 points of bad stuff. Oh wait, I do." -- Corwin to the group
"We've been obscene and derogatory, let's try to avoid scatological if
we can." -- GM
"Why?" -- Jill Pritts
"To take the high road, if we can." -- Paul Burdick
"Did you miss the first three hours of this game?" -- Lisamarie Babik
"'Benedict' is sprouting wings." -- GM
"There goes that cleverly crafted illusion." -- Kris Fazzari
"Another brilliant plan foiled by your own intelligence." -- Duane Spencer
"Polish the schmoo." -- Benedict to GM
"Is that an euphemism?" -- Lisamarie Babik
"This is (Corwin's) Shadow of desire?" -- Kris Fazzari
"Let's see, he's the center of attention, and he's being tortured. I'd say, 'Yeah!'" -- D.J. Hyland
"If my name's Random, how will I know when you're calling me?" -- Lisamarie Babik to the group
"Eric is going to attack Avalon with demon mimes out of Shadow." -- Sasha Burdick to GM
"Do (the demon mimes) scream when I kill them?" -- Corwin
"No, but they mime great pain." -- GM
"I just trap them all in invisible boxes." -- Corwin
"Fight mime with mime." -- Lisamarie Babik
"Just remember, mime doesn't pay." -- GM
"You should save one, since a mime is a terrible thing to waste." -- Duane Spencer
"I don't have to run faster than the mimes, I have to run faster than
the slowest person." -- Random
"You pass a child, covered in molten peanut butter and marshmallow, with burns all over his body, hobbling along." -- GM
"Your pain will be over soon." -- Random
"So now we have fluffernutter children being eaten by demon mimes." -- Kris Fazzari to the group
"Are you ready to finish trashing the place?" -- GM to the group
"We all know I can't have nice things." -- Corwin
"I have spawned insidiously evil children. My job is done." -- Clarissa to the group
"We have to get out of here." -- Paul Burdick
"No, I want to destroy Avalon, Daddy!" -- Sasha Burdick
"I don't want to ride a schmoo anymore, I want to ride a mime. I'll be a mimenrider." -- Benedict to GM
"It's the seven plagues." -- GM
"More like the seventeen plagues." -- Corwin
"The plague of mimes, the plague of peanut butter..." -- GM
"Mimes, marshmallows, peanut butter, Furbies, Amazons, Vikings, Langoliers..." -- D.J. Hyland
"Of course, the first plague was the Amberites." -- Duane Spencer
"Mistakes were made." -- Corwin to the group, looking over his burning, marshmallow-covered city as it's being devoured down to the bedrock
"There's still 10% of the universe left. That's an awful lot." -- Jack Kessler to J.P. Brannan, about Jack's "And the Children Shall Lead" game
"(The universe) already ate your Shadow. And your brother." -- Jack
"I'll miss the Shadow." -- J.P. Brannan
"I had 80 points of warfare...I had 80 points of 'I look mean.'" -- Patrick Franklin to Kris Fazzari
"Do you do anything in "Ill Met (in Amber)" except drink and chase
after other people?" -- Wendi Strang-Frost
"Well yeah...but I slept through that part...." -- Sarah Kindred
