The Winner Is (2021)

We have a winner! The winner of the Amber Zone Contest 2021 (and of $102 at DriveThruRPG) is PoetrySue with the Amber Zone The Githiaskio Mystery.

A great adventure that lets the PCs travel to a number of planets to look for relatives to the Githiaskio. This is a great idea for an adventure and the Githiaskio are a very cool race. Also, the PC’s contact is an uplifted Dolphin (another cool race) that is also an NPC with an interesting background. This could be a one shot adventure, but it could easily be a start of a campaign.

When I will referee this Amber Zone, then I will probably not place it in the Trojan Reach Sector. I would place the adventure closer to the Githiaskio home world in the Antares Sector. Extra complications could involve travelling to Vargr and/or Julian planets.

I would also include an old Droyne Coyn Set that has a Githiaskio symbol, but is missing the Aslan one. A fun thing that you could then do near the end of the adventure is to let the PCs find a brand new coyn set where the human symbol has been replaced with something else (e.g. a Chip or Hhkar).


Second Place

Second Place (and $60) goes to Timothy Collinson for his Amber Zone, Spindrift.

“A very alien race aquatic called Eroctopi (with a subspecies) and a very interesting adventure where the PCs have to find the truth about what is going on. This is a really good Amber Zone that could work as a starting-point for more adventures.” BeRKA


Third Place

Third Place (and $40) goes to Neil Lucock for his Amber Zone, The Kh-Djatsc.

“This Amber Zone presents a really alien race and an interesting story about a colonization conflict with them. I just wish there were 500 more words that described the Kh-Djatsc and maybe a better image of them.” BeRKA
