Things that have been heard around Amber. This news is older, at least six months old by Amber reckoning, and makes up the gossip that has reached pretty much everyone in the family. Amberites who have more recently been in Amber will have an updated scoop.
- Portentous Pregnancy: Queen Vialle is pregnant, very pregnant, far too much so to hide her state any longer. The court is abuzz with speculation about the child of all forms, from serious succession discussions to idle curiosity about the child’s gender, looks, and what his or her upbringing will be.
- Caine’s Crusade: Prince Caine has been quite active in the Golden Circle lately, fighting a series of quick and brutal wars to retake the territories that Eric once held, that lapsed to the control of his governors or opportunistic warlords when he died.
- Literal Lunatics: The full moon has been a trying experience for a few months now in Amber. Each full moon there are serious problems with unrest, to the point of large buildings in the city being set on fire. Random has taken to pretty much shutting down the night-life and declaring martial law during nights of the full moon, which seems to have a lid on the problem for now.
- Buyer Beware: A side effect of having some limited contact with Chaos is a few odd mystical trinkets from the Courts showing up in Amber. The devices are very much a risk on the part of the buyer, however, as they have a tendency to malfunction or behave in unexpected ways. Even more odd is the rumor that the same thing is happening in Chaos. Once-reliable charms now are a bit… chaotic. Of course, that might just be merchants trying to placate irritated Amber customers.
