I have the beginnings of an idea for an Amber campaign.

night__watch keeps asking when I'll put my own game together, and I think I may have an angle.

There's been a lot of discussion on the amber mailing list lately about the nature of Chaos, specifically the Chaos in the first series.

It's got me thinking about non-wujcik interpretations for a lot of rules, like shapeshifting, logrus and sorcery. I'm ignoring the second series entirely, so that means no logrus a very different spin on shapeshifting and a few other weird things.

I have a setting in mind, so all I need now is a plot.

I'm considering running this as a PBeM, since the last thing the lot of us needs right now is another face-to-face campaign to try to schedule.

E-mail would also mean that I could let in non-local people.

Thoughts, comments, cheese?

How 'bout running it on LJ?
I was just asking, over in the adrpg LJ community, about games being run on LiveJournal. A campaign could be set up as a "community," main posts would be on the main page and interactions would be in commentspace ...

Re: How 'bout running it on LJ?
I've thought about it. I'm in the adrpg community, so I noticed that :)

I don't really want to go that route just yet, though, since I like the idea of interpreting everything according to abilities and stuff, so that if the NPC comes up muttering and raving, the good stuff, high warfare character and the bad stuff low warfare charcter will get different descriptions of the scene. It also makes trump tricks, etc easier.

I've also given some thoguht to running Amber on IRC at some point, though not for this campaign.

Good point about the stuff that requires private messages. Text games with no private messages are weird beasts indeed. (I've run one.)
