Corilaine Restored

Corilaine Restored

When Princess Deirdre died, followed shortly thereafter by Queen Sand of Corilaine, they passed their blessings on to the devastation that was once Corilaine, before Osric's curse slaughtered a billion people and destroyed an entire world. Previous attempts to reverse Osric's Spite failed, sometimes spectacularly. Larinne Minobee, who became Queen on the death of Sand, sent members of the family to see what effects the twin blessings had. Many of them, including Ian and Delanne, perished in an attempt to clear their homeland of the horrible creatures that Osric had spawned. Centuries later, when Larinne died, her blessing as well as several others continued to help pacify the Hate.

During the invasion of Corilaine, a war raged between the forces of Osric and the armies of Corilaine.

Delwin had compelled Finndo's son Khelendos to kill Finndo, which he did. Khelendos led a small force into Corilaine, touching off a war that resulted in the deaths of Delwin and over a dozen members of the third generation of Amber.

When Osric was killed by the Twilight Vanquisher in the Unseelie Lands, he proclaimed his death curse on Corilaine, who had thought that they were victorious, having smashed the armies of the children of Osric and Finndo.

This was the result:

With the death of Sand and the death of Deirdre, both of them used the power of their blood to bless the land of Corilaine, which as a Primal Place could not be easily affected by most powers. Queen Larinne of Corilaine-in-Exile sent members of the third generation and others to see the effects of the deaths of two Elders of Amber. They found a small area where trees were beginning to grow again. They began to rebuild. Many, many deaths resulted from having to clear away monsters and beasts warped by the Hatred of Osric. Most of the Shadow is still a smoldering ruin, but Corilaine Restored is now a vibrant forest, with Queen Kiandra sitting on the throne. She has promised to abdicate as soon as the monsters in the wilds are finally dealt with. With the deaths of Ian, Delanne and Adrianna, the most powerful swords of Corilaine are silent now.

Many of Deirdre's descendants are responsible for the entrance to the Valley of Corilaine. This valley spills out into the Wastes of Despite. Their Castle, Castle Overlook, guards the approaches to Corilaine.

Derek, son of Delanne rules the Castle and the area with a wary eye and a fist that strikes Corilaine's foes with frightening savagery and speed.

Corilaine's Queen, Kiandra, lives in a smaller castle on the other end of the great Valley of Corilaine. Her castle defends an end of the valley that backs up against mountains and so is seldom visited by horrors from the wastes.

Queen Kiandra, the Queen of Corilaine, has led her people back to a homeland few of them remember. The Forest of Corilaine is restored, and the people are hyper-vigilant as they carefully push their borders and widen the area they can call safe. Kiandra's lover, Astrid, helps maintain the safety of this Paradise Regained. Sloan, daughter of Delanne leads the armies and Kaya, daughter of Cressida opens new ways for the people to find what they need to be safe in Corilaine.

Uncovered in the recovery of the land was a castle belonging to Delwin, who was driven mad trying to deal with creatures from outside of all realities. His Castle is off limits, and is apparently magically sealed.

Shadow Road to Ellowin

Ellowin is an ancient trading partner, and an old enemy, thanks to Oberon of Amber dumping Harla, making Delwin and Sand illegitimate, and then claiming he had married Rilga of Ellowin, thus making her his Queen, and subsequently backing Ellowin in a war against Corilaine.

When Corilaine was destroyed, Ellowin suffered greatly on the eastern continent when Osric brought the apocalypse to Corilaine. Members of House Gerard have been ever vigilant ever since.
