Ambercon 2018

Welcome to Ambercon! The next Ambercon – the 28th – will be from Thursday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 25th, 2018!

Though Amber Diceless Role-Playing has been old enough to drink for ten years now (it has been thirty-one years since Erick Wujcik first showed ADRP), it is still going strong.

But … Ambercon is a broad-spectrum diceless gaming and indie gaming convention! We’ve got superheroes, musketeers, characters from various fictional settings we won’t name here due to fear of lawsuits, SOE operatives, cowboys, and, of course, Amber-based games… you name it, we’ll game it!
