Princes of Amber
The campaign starts 5 Amber years after the events of the Patternfall (the end of the novel, “The Courts of Chaos”). Because the flow of time varies across Shadows, in other places up to 20 years may have passed.
Oberon’s re-writing of the Pattern (and his death), plus the creation of Corwin’s “Rose” Pattern, have caused massive disruptions of the Shadow Worlds.
Shadow Storms have raged, picking things up (objects, beasts, creatures and even some entire locations) and scattering them throughout nearby Shadows.
All Years are given in Amber Time, before and after the Paternfall.
