It has been but a week since the traitor tried to wipe the Pattern, tried to destroy the universe and rewrite it in his own image.

It has been but a week since Oberon, King of Amber appointed his Prince Regent and departed for holidays.

It has been but a week...

But the Courts of Chaos move fast. Already a party has arrived. A party of diplomats, scholars and students. A party to talk trade and negotiation and politics and peace.

The talk will begin in earnest tomorrow, for tonight is the Grand Ball where the elite get to mingle and socialise and meet with the special guests from the Courts. There will be no talk of politics tonight, will there?


"Powerplay" is a sequel to "No Heir for the Throne of Amber" and involves politics, Machiavellian scheming, lies, murder, bribery, alliances and betrayals.

Costumes for the event are encouraged, but not essential. Those choosing to wear costumes should contact Random for advice.

Knowledge of Roger Zelazny's books is not required, but very much recommended to give you a feel for the game.
