"The Chronicles of Corwynne Stormlord" by Madeline Ferwerda

LlewLluv: Dude, I can't believe they're cancelling The Chronicles. This Merlynne/Dara spinoff is so stupid.
corwynne217: chaos sucks. why would anyone rather watch those stupid chaosites? merlynne is the lamest character ever. and the animation sucks.
LlewLluv: I hear they're planning on blowing up the patterns for the Amber action figures in a big ceremony.
corwynne217: dammit now if mine break i wont be able to get any more...

In one of the shadows Corwin didn't ride though.... In a place Caine didn't even bother to look for a double.... Reflections of the Patternfall war were still fought. Strange, fractured reflections.

You'll play the 6-inch-high plastic action-figure versions of the elders from the popular animated TV series, "The Chronicles of Corwynne Stormlord"™! Will you be the deadly Benedict, with Kung-Fu Grip™? The swashbuckling Blaze, the Gay Blade™? The learned Professor Brandeis? You could be any of these and more -- even Corwynne Stormlord himself!

Aurellis is a continuing campaign set in a version of the real world which has turned out to be larger than was previously thought.

"Shadow Walk: Cobwebs and Dust" by Eric Todd

Catherine, your mother, cried noble tears the day you and your siblings stepped beyond the sheltered shoal of your youth.

Slot 7

"Merry Hell" by Jennifer Zimmerman

With the end of the Patternfall War, a great many Chaosian refugees turned to Amber for a new homeland. With the treaties signed, King Random accepted many thousands into Amber, granting them full citizenship. With this development, the Weir petitioned for citizenship of their own, bringing a second feared minority amidst Amber natives. Every faction has its goals, its dreams, and its desires.

Amber has weathered some difficult transitions in the twenty-two years that King Random has held the throne. As post-war peace with Chaos continues to hold, Amber's citizens have learned to live with the immigrant shapeshifters in their midst. Similarly, acceptance of Amber's Weir citizens is growing, although some still mutter darkly about the murders committed by rogue pack members two years ago.

The city newspaper reports that the King of Chaos has died. The royal house of Amber prepares to take leave from the castle in order to attend the funeral, leaving only Prince Gérard behind. As the first snows begin to fall on Amber, strange occurrences begin.
