"Big Trouble in Amber City" by Randy Trimmer

A palace coup unseats Prince Regent Gérard while the rest of the family is off fighting in Chaos. You, loyal ranger captains, crown agents and such in Amber City for R & R, really should do something about that, especially since there are warrants out for your arrest. Swashbuckling, knifing in the dark, infiltrating the castle via the sewers, a frontal assault on the castle...the methods are up to you.

"Fratricide" by Paul Marshall

In the aftermath of the Patternfall war, Random took regency over Amber for almost six months before a battered old man limped out of Shadow. That man was Oberon, previously believed to be dead. Albeit grudgingly, Random returned the Jewel of Judgement and gave up his throne to his father.

Many years passed and Oberon regained some of his former might but never quite seemed the unholy terror that his children remembered him to be.

One morning, Oberon declared that he was going to abdicate and that his eldest living son, Benedict, was to be his heir apparent. That was six days ago. Immediately after the announcements, Oberon decided to take a week's holiday and promptly disappeared into Shadow, leaving instructions that preparations for Benedict's coronation should be made in his absence.

It is the evening before Oberon is due to return and preparations are in their final throes. All Benedict's living brothers and sisters are in or around Castle Amber in anticipation of tomorrow's coronation.

"Free Rebma!" by Jeremy Zimmerman

"I will not give you troops to assault Amber. As you know, the chaos would be reflected in my own realm."

- Moire, Nine Princes in Amber

During what later came to be called the Patternfall War, a Black Road stretched from the Courts of Chaos to Amber, bringing the Lords of Chaos to do battle with the royal family of Amber. However, during this struggle, few had time to notice that Rebma faced its own problems with a Black Current bringing Tritons against Rebma.

While Amber ultimately fought off the armies of Chaos, Rebma did not fare as well, and came under the dominion of King Lir. The Royal Court of Rebma fled to exile within Amber, and have spent many years living under the Regency of Prince Gérard, seeking a way to reclaim their lands from the Tritons.

And to this end, they seek out those who are willing to aid them....

"The Merry Wives of Oberon" by Jennifer Crice

Loved or despised, desired or cast aside, the women of Oberon each had a hand in shaping the future of the One True City. Each knew of the ones before her, and a few knew of the ones that came after - but years and circumstance kept them mostly apart - until something went wrong.

Join your fellow wives in an adventure to preserve the past so that the future might happen - or perhaps that YOUR particular view of the future might prevail....

"Do we have any old records of..." -- Bleys
"No." -- GM

"(Benedect) was just a wee lad when Osric died...." -- Dworkin to ?
"What is a wee lad? Has this come up before? Am I a wee lad?" -- Bleys

"Benedict is but a pale shadow of his brothers." -- Dworkin to ?
"Ok, that's new...." -- Camille Holthaus

"Yeah, actually, send Corwin a copy (of Dworkin's Chaosian Autopsy reports). He's probably still a little miffed about that whole captured, eyes-burned-out thing." -- Bleys to ?

"And I really don't want to meet Flora's Chaos form. Probably has grenades for fingernails." -- Camille Holthaus
"Things just melt around her." -- GM

"Ok, I'm trying to call Bleys." -- Gérard
"Bleys?" -- GM to Bleys
"You're hunting Brand. You get a Trump call...." - Madeline Ferwerda

"Am I sure this is the same Benedict?" -- Gérard
"Everyone's taking his orders, and that's the important thing...." -- GM

"Then, as fast as physically possible, without prior tensing, I change my hand into a razor knife and slash (Brand's) throat." -- Caine
"It works...." -- GM, bemused
"Then I pin him to the ground with my sword through his heart, because I don't trust the throat to kill him." -- Caine
"Now I have to decide how cool Brand really is." -- GM

"Then I turn the Trump so he can see what I have. 'I believe it's the real one. Would you like to come pick up your trash?'" -- Caine to Oberon, regarding the skewered Brand

"Dworkin, can you trace where that went to?" -- Bleys, after Brand uses the Trump contact to grab the Jewel from Oberon and escapes
"'I cannot,' he says. Oberon breathes heavily for a bit, and then says, 'I can. But it takes for-frigging-ever.'" -- GM

"You really hurt him. And his feelings." -- GM to Caine, letting him know how the Brand thing sorted out

"His sword is good for lighting things on fire." -- Benedict to ?, speaking of how Bleys will be useful in the war against Chaos
"Well, this is damaging to my ego, so I think I'll break it off." -- Bleys

"He suggests that you might want to talk to Caine, who apparently had (Brand) and lost him." -- GM to Bleys, regarding tracking Brand

"Well, how much blood are we talking about, here?" -- Bleys
"I dunno, perhaps a person's worth?" -- Fiona

"And you...." -- GM, asking Bleys where he is
"Keep?" -- Bleys
"Oh, yes, the running furiously away." -- GM

"(Brand) looks, you know, relatively surprised as the first four or five (arrows) hit...." -- GM to ?

"Can I hit the Jewel itself with the arrow? It's probably not going to hurt it.... No, wait, here he reconsiders." -- Bleys to GM

"Father. Well, I shot (Brand) a few times...." -- Bleys
"Large caliber, I hope." -- Oberon
"No, arrows, but 12 of them." -- Bleys
"It's a start." -- Oberon

"I have a theory as to why (Benedict's) acting weird, so it doesn't unnerve me." -- Caine
"He does English jigs every once in a while, for no reason you can see. He tells jokes...." -- GM
"Ok, that unnerves me." -- Caine
"They're not funny." -- GM, helpfully clarifying

"Have you seen my brother? I believe he might have been wounded...." -- Bleys to ?, looking for Brand

"There will be a funeral for my...late brother Brand. All we have of him is his head; it's in there on a tray." -- Bleys to the castle steward
"His eyes are getting progressively larger...." -- GM

"Could this not be handled as an intra-family matter?" -- steward
"We're not so good for finding coffins, arranging funerals.... That's why we employ people." *pat* *pat* "Buck up, man." -- Bleys

"Your sons are about to kill each other. Do you wish to intercede?" -- Caine
"Which sons?" -- Oberon

"Oh, yeah, Bleys absolutely agrees that Oberon is a worthless bastard; the only good thing about him is that he's holding the universe together." -- Bleys to ?

"Amber is interesting. It is different from the land of my birth. I like it. If it disappeared, I would move on." -- Dworkin
"Better start packing." -- Bleys

"I think (Oberon) respects me more than the rest of you, for actually standing up to him." -- Bleys
"You would." -- Llewella

"There are an abundance of Hendrakes in the main command encampment." -- GM
"Well, hopefully none of them will hold a grudge about me and Fiona stabbing them in the back." -- Bleys
"None of them gives you a second glance. They give you some long first glances, but...." -- GM
