Amber Gossip Headlines -Courtesy of Dwinn.

ROYALS SCUFFLE AT BASH (Reuters) Two members of the Amber royal family became entangled in fisticuffs yesterday during the yearly ball thrown by Princess Florimel. The combatants were identified as Quentin Barimen, 31, and Christopher Barimen, 1017, both originally from Amber. Sources close to this outlet suggest the fight start after unflattering remarks were made by Christopher to Quentin concerning the latter's escort to the party, one Bailey Prath Barimen, an Ivory native. Further complicating this story was the arrival of Her Worshipfulness Gwyn(insert Welsh), High Priestess of the Church of the Unicorn, who is reported to have fainted upon the sight of the injuries to the combatants. It has been reported that the two battling cousins have since made up. Princess Gen could not be reached for comment. - - - - -

The Problems of the PCs according to Dwinn

On Christopher
Chris also has the problem of being in love with Aunt Bitchy, who also runs a orphanage of relatives that's she teaching to hate Amber, and also that his son knows of/has possibly been cavorting with Anna and Isabelle. Not to mention that Aunt Bitchy is prolly invoved with said villians.

On Gen
"My Dad's a mess, and I have a goofy brother with an Evil Twin who has a son who's helping me but I don't know what he'll do next and my man is out on dangerous missions all the time and my kittycat maybe an Agent of a Higher Power and stuff. "
