Partial Powers System
In the All Roads Lead to Amber game, we utilize a tiered approach to the Partial Powers system commonly used in many Amber Diceless games. This is both to keep the ambiguity of the original system, as well as the flexibility of the Partial Powers system. Generally, in a conflict between two people using powers, the higher tier power will win. Ties will often go to the higher Psyche, with weighting given for certain powers. The following powers are the publicly known levels and powers of All Roads Lead to Amber
- Supplementary Powers
- Abyssal Mysticism (This power has been demonstrated, but its capacities are currently unknown)

Items of Power
Recurring throughout the stories of Oberon’s children are certain items of Power. While some contain a fraction of true Reality within them, others are simply mysterious sources of power and change.

The alliance of Shadows gathered by Oberon and connected by the Golden Pathways. They are a trade alliance that provides Amber with its significant amount of political clout.
Gathered around Firegate and the Logrus, and ruled by High King Swayville, this is an ancient society of shapeshifters and sorcerors who control vast stretches of Shadow through their mastery of the Logrus.
