The Storms of Shadow
'The Feast of the Unicorn'
The Princes and Princesses of Amber have returned to pay homage and respect to both King Savian and to the religious ceremony surrounding the first sighting of the Unicorn on Midsummer’s Eve. Notables of the Golden Circle State have arrived as well, including the Queen’s royal family from Kashfa and the Descendants of House Sorvin in Thelshane, further glorifying the event, but their arrival has not come without incident. An attack on the nobles of House Sorvin has cast a dark cloud over the night’s celebration, hinting at the possibility that enemies of Amber lurk outside the perceptions of the crown.
The valor of Amber blood has, however, once again shone through, its nobles rising up to meet and defeat their enemies on the field of battle. Even now, thoughts of what lies beyond the barriers of shadow fade, and are filled with the excitement that the night has to offer. Only a few hours remain before the great hall will be filled with those of the blood and their subjects, and soon the castle will be wreathed in flame to commemorate the event.
For a few hours at least, thoughts of dark plots and enemies can be put aside, allowing all of Amber to celebrate the glory of their Deity and the one true city.
