In six days, they say, the world was created.
In three days it died.
One day for society to crumble.
Two days for TV, Radio and government to fall silent.
Three days for everyone you know to die.

And on the fourth morning the birds were singing but the roads were silent; their only occupants wrecked cars and decaying bodies. The cities vast charnel houses; their houses tombs…

Except for you. For you no coughing; no paralysing weakness; no delirium; no death. For you the infinitely harder course — to live on, and, perchance, to found a new age of Humanity.

This game ran at Ambercon UK 2004. It is only here for nostalgic reasons.

In the days before the final battle of Patternfall, with pattern storms raging through shadow and Amber united again under its rightful king, the princes and princesses gathered around them their hitherto most secret of treasures; their children. Spawned over long reaches of time, in distant and protected shadows, now endangered by the vast forces soon to be unleashed, the children gathered in Amber, to await the return of the triumphant host or to fall in defence of Amber under the feet of ravaging Chaos. The King himself oversaw their initiation into the family inheritance, and then himself passed out of knowledge, and was never seen again. Days became weeks, and weeks months. A year passed, and a second was waning when the pennants were seen emerging from Arden in the teeth of the storm, bringing a new King to rule in Amber. The Regency of the Children was ended, but before the new king could sit on his throne there was a feast to prepare; a feast fit for heroes; a feast that would live in song for generations. Gaily and gladly the children carried out their last duty, not knowing that they stood on the very brink of the abyss. Few there were that would ever see the dawn.

I wrote the original geek quiz over ten years ago, and it was unfairly aimed at ageing geeks then. I moved it over here more to make sure I could get a significant quantity of Javascript working in a wiki environment than because I wanted it here.
