"Agents of the Argent Rose: 'City of Swords'" by R.F. McCaughey

France. The year is 1923. An age of wonder and contentment has come upon the world. The modern vision of great bards like Jules Verne has begun to see realization. The world hub for artistry, genius, and innovation is the banks of the river Seine. Paris.

You have been asked to attend the inauguration of a new President since your Aunt Lenaig and her party have lost the election. Private purpose, insure that Grandpere Corwin and Stigmatist radicals do not interfere with this event and thereby blacken the impartial process of the great republic.

Your mission, keep the peace and support the new President of France. The Argent Alliance, the honor of your family and innocent lives may hang in the balance.

"ShadowWorld" by Edwin Voskamp

The real world in the current day, with a few changes (e.g. Quebec, Ontario the provinces east of it became a country and, with Cuba, Ecuador and Vanuatu, formed a Commonwealth). For (much) more detail, register at and let me know, so I can provide access to the 'operators only information' and read the 'Public Knowledge' forum.

ShadowWorld is a diceless roleplaying game based in our world, except that, under the facade of media, politics, political correctnes and 'reality' there is a ShadowWorld where strange things happen: psionic powers, ancient secrets, dark conspiracies that are hidden from or dismissed by the general public. Things have been getting seriously out of hand. The players are psionically gifted operators of a secret organization sent on a mission.

"Ahead of the Storm" by Eric Todd

You are a proud child of Amber, born in the golden age that is Emperor Benedict's eternal reign. Power is your birthright, duty your mother's milk.

For twenty years you and your small cohort of young scions have paid your years of service, have learned the ways of the empire. Today you step forward into the sunlight of adulthood, unaware of the storm that looms behind you, threatening to wash all away.

Benedict is the Emperor of Amber and has been such for nearly two thousand years. Think Rome ruled by an eternal Augustus.

Most of the other elders and characters from the books are long dead or missing.

You are Benedict's youngest children, born of his harem, raised to be fierce and duty-bound. He is a distant, demanding, god-like father.

"Amber Begins" by Mark MacKinnon

This is a story of a time long ago: a time of myth and legend. When the ancient gods were petty and cruel, and plagued mankind with suffering. Only one man dared to challenge their power: Oberon! Oberon possessed a power the world had never seen, and cunning surpassed only by the strength of his convictions. He journeyed the multiverse, battling the minions of his wicked ancestors, the all-powerful Chaosians. But wherever there was evil, wherever an innocent would suffer, there would be: Oberon!

Do they really believe that crap? You were there, even if you were younger. It wasn't quite like that.

"Riddles in the Attic" by Bridgette Ruggles

Your family is less than ordinary. Your parents, your aunts and uncles are all among the beautiful people. Well-to-do, dashing, daring, long lived and quick witted. Nobility even, though so far from Her Majesty's throne that it's not worth counting the line ahead of you. Of course, Great Uncle Bleys says, you don't want that one anyhow. But it's no time for silly, cryptic jokes. The year is 1942 and the world has descended into war again. This time the trouble has crossed the sea and planes pound the cities. Father is off to war and Mother has decided that you are going to Grandma Fiona's. A holiday in the country, she calls it, but lovely as Grandma might still be, she is a bitter old woman, made so, they say, when her youngest daughter vanished from a locked and secure house. Coincidentally, that was also when the family fortunes soured...along with the whole of the world's it seems.

A generation later the mystery has never been solved and the family has scattered, venturing into the cities and leaving the old manor, its memories, and its secrets, to gather dust.

Set in WWII England, PCs are the grandchildren (or even great grandchildren) of Fiona, Bleys, Gérard or Flora, age 5 - 13 yrs.
