AmberCon Northwest is a fully scheduled role-playing game convention in Troutdale, Oregon, just east of Portland. ACNW was originally devoted to Roger Zelazny's worlds of Amber and Phage Press's Amber Diceless RPG by Erick Wujcik. It has expanded over the years to encompass other diceless and indie RPGs of all kinds, and most recently Rite Publishing's Lords of Gossamer and Shadow, a new take and expansion upon the Amber Diceless gaming rules.
2018 marks AmberCon Northwest's twenty-second year at the venue that makes it unique, McMenamins Edgefield Bed and Breakfast Resort.
Use this site to learn how an AmberCon works; explore the venue; register for the convention; submit game events to the organizers; sign up for games when the event book is published; and check out the event books from past AmberCon Northwests.
