Amber information

I've got a lot of research ahead of me to find out all sorts of information I need for the Amber game at Conquest. It's all necessary research, and I feel that it would be a waste just to research it all for a game, and then leave it all afterwards.

As a result, I've set up a Wiki for it on one of my domains, so that as I find out all the things that I want to know (for example, Julian's hair colour is mentioned as black later in Nine Princes in Amber, even though it's only mentioned as "dark" in the trump description) I can put them in a place that's findable later, and that others might be able to use.

So, for your edification and enjoyment, I present the AmberWiki. Currently there's very little there (I think I've done two articles so far, and one of them was almost completely copied from Wikipedia) but as I go I'll be adding more to it as I do the research.

I've just remembered... The Amber novels are all divided into chapters, none of which is longer than about ten pages (and many considerably shorter). References should include the chapter number, because these are consistent across editions, and do narrow down the location of the reference quite well.

If you want page numbers, choose an edition and stick to it (GBoA being my preference, as the most easily available edition today), as I said, but definitely use chapter numbers.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
