AmberCon Northwest is a fully scheduled role-playing game convention held annually 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. Many games will expect some passing knowledge of at least the main characters and basic plot points of Zelazny's Amber novels.
2023 marks AmberCon Northwest's twenty-seventh year, returning to the venue that makes it unique, McMenamins Edgefield Bed and Breakfast Resort.
