  2. Oceans Dirtside by Alegis Downport
  3. Research Double-Cross by Marcus Maxiumus

We have already presented the winner.


Second place (and $60) goes to Alegis Downport.

Two comments:

“An interesting twist to the penetrate-the-base-and-steal-the-thing scenario: provides PCs with a moral decision to make, and general chaos for lots of interesting encounters and tension.” Jono

“So many things going on and so many things that may go wrong. The players would have a great game if the referee let them survive until the end” BeRKA

Third Place (and $40) goes to Marcus Maxiumus.

Two comments:

“An interesting take on a rescue mission with three parties involved and the PCs needing to talk their way out of conflicting parties where both parties are not clearly ‘enemies’ and could be working together.” Jono

“Great in style, interesting ideas. Military action and rescue.” BeRKA

The winner is (2019)

We have a winner! The winner of the Amber Zone Contest 2019 (and of $101 at DriveThru) is  Mark Suszko with A Shot (and a beer) In the Dark.

Two comments:

“Very evocative setting in The Belt; I immediately thought of The Expanse. I love the character Gramps and his muddled memory. Strong character development and setting that will directly impact game play” Jono

“The referee can do a lot with this Amber Zone. It can be a great one-shot adventure or the beginning of a campaign. The style of this Amber Zone matches the best classic ones.” BeRKA
