The Golden Circle
The Golden Circle is indeed a literal circle of waterways that link together various Kingdoms that have treaties and commerce with Amber. The circle surrounds Amber, all ways lead to Oberon’s great city. Because most travel in the Golden Circle is done by ship, the stars are very important to navigating the shadow paths that cross the seas. Each Golden Circle Kingdom is associated with which part of the Zodiac it lies under, as that’s what sailors look to when they make their way to or from a kingdom.
