Shadow of a Doubt

         This is an Amber campaign started in June 2006, GMed by Madeline Ferwerda. It is set in the standard Amber cosmos after the Patternfall War. However, the PCs all began ignorant of Amber itself. Instead, they all know each other as fellow resistance fighters in a common shadow reality. There, it is an alternate history where the United States stayed out of WWII, and Germany successfully invaded England in 1941. The campaign began with the PCs as resistance fighters in occupied England in 1943.
