Events From the Beginning of Corwin's Chronicles
In the first year after Corwin wakes up in Greenwood, Corwin comes to Amber, Random is sentenced to marry Vialle, Corwin and Bleys stage a failed assault on Amber, Bleys disappears, Corwin is captured, and Eric crowns himself King.
Around three months into Corwin's captivity, Random (who does not complete his year-long sentence in Rebma), walks the Pattern, and tries to kill Eric. He is captured. Vialle petitions to join him, a week later, but Eric does not immediately grant this request. In the second year of Corwin's captivity, Vialle joins Random in prison.
In the third year, Corwin's eyes regenerate. Corwin escapes before the fourth coronation anniversary is reached.
Corwin returns to Amber, with Ganelon and guns, slightly more than five years after he woke up in Greenwood (i.e., about seven years after Oberon's disappearance).
We begin the MUSH at the point of Corwin's return. From here, we switch to a real-world chronology, with IC time equating OOC time at a one-to-one ratio; you can see this in-game with the +date command, with October 23rd, 2007, representing the date of the battle that ends The Guns of Avalon. This chronology includes only major events that everyone would be aware of.
- October 2007 "Eric ends the battle against the Black Road in a coma (rather than dying, as he does in the books). Corwin is de facto regent. Battle of the Oisen. Brand is rescued from the tower in which he has been imprisoned.
- January 2008 Black Ice fought in Kitezh, where a new Volcano announces that Gotterdamerung may be approaching. The local outcropping of the Black Road is beaten, and the road seems dormant.
- March 2008 Corwin is crowned King. Benedict resigns his commission.
- June 2008 The deterioration of the Golden Circle shadowpaths becomes a significant concern.
- August 2008 The Black Road lays siege to Amber City while Corwin is away from Amber. The Portafada take advantage of this to conduct their own assault (the "bug invasion"). The Black Road army is driven off (it's the last great Road battle in Amber), but at great cost in lives, and the Lower City is badly damaged by the Portafada assault.
- September 2008 - Corwin leaves Amber, taking his gunmen but leaving no public instructions or message of abdication; he eventually establishes Banyan, a place at the edge of shadow, before all turns to Chaos. Leviathan (an ancient sea-monster and enemy of Rebma) rises, and his cult returns, but they are eventually defeated.
- November 2008 Brand becomes regent.
- March 2009 Brand hands the regency to Julian. Plague is detected along the Ghenesh shadowpath, and dealt with.
- May 2009 Julian is crowned King. The Black Road invades Pathi, and is repelled with assistance from outside Pathi, but at great cost.
- September 2009 - The Alhambran necromancer Jabir murders Duke Parris Chantris in a ritual which brings a Blight upon the upper city.
- October 2009 - Julian goes into shadow to hunt Dara, leaving Llewella as regent. A violent earthquake shakes Rebma, when its Pattern is destroyed.
- November 2009 Llewella turns the regency over to Deirdre. There is a coup. Random is Regent for three days, and then Benedict crowns himself King.
- December 2009 Silverspire is sundered from Weirmonken. Julian is rescued.
- February 2010 Eric is rescued from Order.
- March 2010 A violent shadowstorm shakes the far reaches of shadow, resulting in widespread cataclysmic destruction. The ripples go all the way to Amber's borders.
- June 2010 The children of Faiella, led by Corwin, attempt a coup against Benedict. They briefly take the palace, but Caine's agents take it back. Eric and Deirdre steal the physical throne.
- September 2010 A Silver Rift tied to Tir and Banyan appears in the sky of Amber one night. Corwin threatens another invasion, and Benedict abdicates, leaving Bleys as Regent in Oberon's name. Fiona unanchors the Silver Rift from Amber, but the ritual also disembodies Corwin and Deirdre, leaving them akin to Tir ghosts.
- October 2010 Fiona repairs / redraws the Pattern in Rebma.
- November 2010 One of the Great Dragons is seen alive, flying over Amber City.
- February 2011 A Tir-ghost of Oberon is spotted coming down the steps from Tir, but it vanishes before it can reach Amber. Corwin is betrayed by Gram, and the sword falls into the hands of Mordred, who declares himself master of Banyan.
- May 2011 A Menhir of Order created by Eric at The Citadel overlooking St. Isaac Twygg Bay in Begma. (this would not be known by everyone.)
- June 2011 A ritual to return Corwin and Deirdre to their bodies is successful, but at the cost of shattering the Pattern in Tir.
- November 2011 Ragnarok. Kitezh starts burning, after the deaths of its gods.
- March 2012 The body of Taran Solaris is recovered from Albion. The armour of the Red Knight is placed under guard, but on display until needed again in Lyonesse.
- July 2012 House Solaris is reabsorbed into House Chantris. A prophecy for the renewal of Lyonesse is made. The wedding of Prince Caine and Lady Maereina.
- October 2012 The Golden Hunter is Sealed.
- February 2013 The Menagerie becomes a stable point in the Dreaming. Kaspar declares himself Ulfric of Weirmonken.
- March 2013 Martin's coronation as Regent of Rebma.
- June 2013 The Fomori, long thought extinct, are seen again in Lyonesse.
- August 2013 Random takes the throne in Amber. The Gilded Steel Lodge opens in Eastgate.
- September 2013 The Black Road gains a new base in Ascolat. (Like the order menhir, this would not be known by everyone.)
- November 2013 Gerard slays the fire giant Surtr in what is left of Kitezh. Kitezh sinks beneath the waves.
- December 2013 Amethyst acknowledged as Princess of Amber by King Random. A zombie Bleys somehow loose in Amber Lower City.
- January 2014 A new land rises where once Kitezh was.
- February 2014 The birth of the Bloodwood in Arden.
