Who is Erebus?

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Erebus, son to Caine, is a character I am currently playing in a Play-By-Post game of Amber Diceless Roleplaying. Smart-mouthed, irreverent, and largely absent from Amber as a result of some poorly chosen words to a normally congenial uncle. Erebus thought an extended trip through Shadow may improve his chances to live to see another year.

Next will be the hero of the Amber Chronicles (at least in his own eyes) Corwin, self crowned King of Amber. Well, he was for a matter of moments before he was beaten and forced to watch his brother Eric claim the crown and throne.

True story: I really lobbied for Corwin as a possible boy’s name, if my youngest had popped out a boy. Alas, I was gifted with my third girl, sweet Anna. S’okay. We have plenty of girl clothes. :)

Caine, and a bonus!

Caine has always been the dark brother, the one no one really trusts because he is as likely to stab them in the back as help them. His reputation is well deserved, for the man hunted down a physical double in Sahdow, killed him, framed another brother for the deed, and hid out in Shadow trying to uncover the plot of whoever was behind the Black Road. He showed up in the nick of time to strike a decisive blow against the great betrayer of Amber, but no one trusts him for it.


Next I have a creation I summoned form the nether regions of my head and are one of the major foes of the Play-By-Post game of Amber Diceless Roleplay I am running: The Corruptor.

Crafted to violently possess their foes, they can take over their host’s body for a short while to commit mayhem and destruction on their foes. Not only can they survive out of water, but have amazingly fast mobility for being utterly boneless!
