Time Relations In Amber

From RPGnet
Jump to: navigation, search

Shadow is vast and speeds vary. There are general relations between Time and Order. Amber & Avalon have a hard immutable time. Shadows around them have carried times in relation to them and they can change as the waves of shadow move.

The terminology is "Time in Shadow to Time in Amber". Amber has a 24 hour day/night cycle. It has a calendar of 12 months of 30 days, with 5 holidays. Shadow travelers can achieve extraordinary difference in time to Amber. Extremely experience shadow manipulators can in many cases change the time ratio of a shadow depending on many factors.

Sometimes a shadow manipulator will change a shadow to allow them to not lose time away from a particular shadow. Its structure is that when they are on the planet the time in relation to Amber flows one way and when they are away from the shadow it flows differently. The term is "Time Personally In Shadow to time in Amber: Time in Shadow While Away to Amber"
