Introducing Aiden

Post  Aiden on Sat Dec 17, 2011 11:12 pm

Hi, all. I realize that you're all filled up at the moment but I'd like to introduce myself as a '2nd string player' if you add to the lineup, David. Smile In this shadow, my name is Mark. I've been interested in getting in on an Amber game for several years because Zelazny's Amber series is without doubt my favorite set of books, but just never created that occurrance. I've played a number of rpgs back in the day, AD&D, MARVEL, GAMMA WORLD, etc, but never something that was story-centered such as this, so I may be 'all thumbs' to start out. I did find this game after deciding yesterday to get involved in such a thing....sort of stumbled across here as it were, so I consider it must be fate. Smile
I'm working on the idea of being Kerlaun, son of the long lost Sand..... Some ideas....Possibly somewhat estranged from mom as she wishes to remain univolved in the affairs of Amber. I would be curious but cautious as I've grown up with 'stories' about the lot of them. Perhaps was snuck into Amber a year back by Uncle Delwyn ( who can mask his comings and goings with Spikard magic ) to walk the Pattern because he knew of my desire to 'see the world'.
Anyway, I look forward to following the story and jumping in later if possible.

-Mark

Hullo Mark! Well, good luck and all that. Right now I've got like six people on the waiting list. Just a friendly warning!

I'd rather not deal with any children by Delwyn, Sand, Finndo or Osric, etc. Just for simplicity's sake! This story takes place prior to the second Chronicles.

You know, at this point I wish I had the energy for a second game, because looks like I've got the players for it! Shocked But...I most emphatically do not. Soooo...pull up a seat if you like and watch! Very Happy

As of today, there is an opening in The Crimson Unicorn for another player. The first player to contact me asking to fill the slot wins it.

I noticed Ker was quick on the draw! If he's always like that he'll wear out Dave's digits in no time. Although you Keir and Mint have been keeping him busy.

The rest of us are protecting your hands from carpal tunnel syndrome, Dave!

Carpal Tunnel...

Blah.

By the time that gets to be a problem, I'll be rocking more cybernetic implants.

I already got the one in the spine. Titanium stuff in my wrists would be kinda cool.

(Seriously, I taught myself to mouse left-handed... that's been a GREAT help. Switch hands every hour or so, it changes your alignment ALL up.)

Welcome Kerlaun. Or should we spell that Kierlaun? Eric had many skills, but coming up with creative names for kids was not his forte. Wink

Seriously, welcome to the game.

Cousins and possibly even a brother or sister (both if an Erikspawn).

Erikspawn makes it sound so much like tadpoles. Or maybe that's what the bloodworms are really and the bodies are just the shell of the Keir.

Ah, you read it as Erik spawn. I read it as Erik's pawn. I get a whole different image.

Our new Player Character is named Aiden and we just going through some exploration of his background right now. Those of you who've been around Amber awhile have almost certainly heard of him.

Would you mind posting an introduction thread for Aiden with a couple sentences on what you would consider public knowledge about Aiden? Thanks.

Hmmmm....public knowledge....

Aiden would be fairly well known around Amber and the Golden Circle kingdoms...at least in certain circles. He is the son of Caine and Eithne(Enya), a woman of Irish and English heritage on Shadow Earth. He grew up learning the import/export business that his mother had begun and has since expanded it to include trade with the areas in and around Amber ( since Caine brought him back to Amber some 7-8 years ago to walk the Pattern. He was around 24 Earth years old at the time. )
Aiden is a professional 'collector', 'treasure hunter', 'seeker of rare and wondrous artifacts'. As well as helping to run the import/export business, he also accepts special commisions from wealthy patrons to find and retrieve certain rare artifacts and relics for their private collections. He is a consumate businessman and professional (although he does love the thrill of the adventure and being the first to hold and examine treasures which have often not seen the light of day for millenia.
He's even done a few small bits for the extended family. He has found several pieces of exquisite art for Flora, for instance.

And yeah, he really does wear a fedora. Cool

Crackpot theory--could he have cast in a Shadow in an alternate Earth, one a bit more exotic and exciting than most, and (as sometimes happens) did a creative mind on his own Earth 'sense' that other Aiden and create a fictional version of him in the world were Aiden grew up? Maybe naming him after on of the States in the United States? Shocked
