This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Hi! I'm thinking about GMing an Amber campaign. For some years already, while I was playing and GMing other games =)
I have plenty of ideas for game plots, tons of homemade lore and my own madly extended vision of Amber multiverse for spicing (quantum-holographic-eldritch-non-euclidean to the point I've had to learn some math to understand what have I done, really, lol). But. I still have two big issues. Sorcery (yeah, this again), but I think I found a way to manage it after I slept one year on LoGaS books. And existence of the PCs who were born before the 5th tome events.
Considering the fact that the wave of destruction produced by Oberon's attempt to fix the Pattern had crossed the entire Shadow from Mt Colvir to the Abyss, how the (lost or forgotten?) prince offspring could survive this annihilation? If I follow the lore, a shadow can pretty much be destroyed, it's OK we've seen that. The lore tells us that the fixed Pattern had recreated or regenerated or refilled the destroyed Shadow. Or am I missing something? How, idk, Fiona's daughter could survive if she was somewhere in the Shadow when everything collapsed? If she was not in Amber or in the Courts or in some sort of absolute stasis made by eldritch demons somewhere in the deeps of the primordial Chaos of course... She was not a part of the Shadow nor she was a great master of Pattern to protect herself somehow. Why is she still alive? Any ideas? How do you manage the 5th tome consequences in your games? Thanks.
