Blood Of The Unicorn

This game ran at Ambercon UK 2004. It is only here for nostalgic reasons.

In the days before the final battle of Patternfall, with pattern storms raging through shadow and Amber united again under its rightful king, the princes and princesses gathered around them their hitherto most secret of treasures; their children. Spawned over long reaches of time, in distant and protected shadows, now endangered by the vast forces soon to be unleashed, the children gathered in Amber, to await the return of the triumphant host or to fall in defence of Amber under the feet of ravaging Chaos. The King himself oversaw their initiation into the family inheritance, and then himself passed out of knowledge, and was never seen again. Days became weeks, and weeks months. A year passed, and a second was waning when the pennants were seen emerging from Arden in the teeth of the storm, bringing a new King to rule in Amber. The Regency of the Children was ended, but before the new king could sit on his throne there was a feast to prepare; a feast fit for heroes; a feast that would live in song for generations. Gaily and gladly the children carried out their last duty, not knowing that they stood on the very brink of the abyss. Few there were that would ever see the dawn.

The moving finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on; nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
— Omar Khayyam

Matters Arising

Gerard did not remain in Amber. With a couple of dozen youngsters to defend it he was of more use in the war. Oberon remained in Amber for a month before departing.

You should assume that there is a limit of 25 points available for backgrounds, for reasons of game balance. Please feel free to write more though ;-)
