Patternfall War

The conflict between Amber and the Courts of Chaos, seemingly engineered and encouraged by certain forces within the family of Amber. Chaos was urged into the conflict by a number of signs. Corwin‘s curse against his brother Eric and the partial damage done to the Primal Pattern opened the Black Road, the invasion route from the Courts of Chaos to Amber. Forces in the Courts of Chaos were also encouraged by the warring factions of Amberites, especially the rebel cabal lead by Clarissa’s children, Bleys, Brand, and Fiona, who implied that they might be willing to ally themselves against Amber. In the end, the war proved disastrous to Chaos, and nearly as damaging to Amber. Peave was eventually achieved through Amber’s military victory, but also through the influence of a third, “peace party”, headed by Dara and Merlin, both of whom have a mixed heritage from the two courts, and Martin, the son of Random.
