  • The Red Sword Calls: The third and current campaign began in December 2018

By Michael J. Watson, in Southern California.

There is a lot of the information found in this Wiki concerning the Jeweled Amber game that is information available before the game. If however you come to play in the JR&WoB game consider this information the word on the street , the skinny , the whispers in the dark , the word around the campfire , the rumor I heard Dame Margot tell the Little King Michael in the kitchen , and the same as bold faced lies. Just sayin.

Stories of the Realm

Heirs and spares

This document is comprised of the most accurate accounting of the family line of Dworkin Bariman, a rebel Lord of Chaos.

This is a compilation list created from multiple sources.

  • *The Amber College of Heralds: The most detailed original listing of the royalty and nobility of Amber and the keeper of their bloodlines and their heraldry. While they had the publicly known list of the children of Oberon the vast majority of their work concerned noble houses, royal letters patent, and royal and noble charters.
  • *The Heirs and Spares document: Recieved from the Courts of Chaos, created and maintained by Duchess Maylon Hendrake. This work was delivered to King Random by Maylon Hendrke when she served her first term as Ambassador to Amber from Chaos. It was something of a threat and revealed the depths of knowledge concerning the members of the royal family as well as revealing the lines of Amberites created by Lord Darnuthas rasaka afuras that were in the Benedict/Hendrake breeding program. This collection included the names of the First Brood as well but nothing else on them.
  • *The Researches of King Finndo: This collection of cards and descriptions came from research done by King Finndo, initially during his reign but continuing long after, only made public after the delivery of Maylon Hendrakes 'Heirs and Spares document. These detailed the First Brood of Oberon up to and including Princes Osric, Finndo,Benedict, Borlak, and Finhdo, and princesses Cymnea, Orasola, and Evelyn.
  • Dworkin's admissions: Dworkin has admitted to fathering two other lines of Amberites. The Verna Line and the Vincent Line.
  • The Admissions of Fisk: Fisk is a son of Osric who has had little connection to amber despite living in the City of Amber itself all along. His criminal empire is a source of concern for some but he has an understanding with King Random. He submitted a closely held article of submission as well as a listing of his progeny. These include his daughter Jade, grandson Quin, and grandson Abelvi.

Diners of Amber

The seminal work of the Jeweled Amber multiverse. What began as the snarky article of Submission for Prince Bleys became a tour guide of the universe for travelers allowed to find their way among the multiverse by the creation of the Jeweled Road.

Its been edited many times as card magically appear in the deck. This annoys Bleys but he has come to accept his role as the unwilling Docent of Amber.
