The Root of All Evil
by Robert Winkel

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil
to one who is striking at the root."
Walden [1854]

That was then, this is now

The Root of All Evil PBEM campaign starts countless millennia after both of the Amber chronicles. So much time has passed that none of the original characters in the novels are known, not even in ancient legends.
Amber, The Courts of Chaos, and The Tree of Ygg are the three only truly real places in all of shadow. The Abyss is also part of reality, but is outside of boundaries of shadow.
The stuff of shadow has been considerably strengthened since the days we knew. This is mainly because of the spread of the Blood of Reality right throughout shadow. But also because of the growth of The Tree of Ygg. This makes it harder to manipulate shadows, shadow veils, and pathways, and extremely hard to destroy them.
Through the passage of time, knowledge of The Primal Pattern has been lost, and Corwin's Pattern does not exist, not even in memory.

Cast of Characters

"Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny."
Quoted by Samuel Smiles [1812-1904]

Here is the summery of Partial Powers that I am using in the campaign. I put them here to get the creative juices of players flowing. I prefer a solid background and concept to a character, rather than strict point adherance. They are merely suggestions.
