Amber Fun Facts


Amber is one of the oldest and most revered Kingdoms in all of TINY EMPIRES
7 years ago today, Amber started under the realm of King Angel Cordoso.
Today, AMBER remains in the top 25 and grows daily thanks to active players.

Happy Birthday Amber. May we be as active and prosperous after 7 more years, as we are today.

Amber has one of the best QUEST help guides in all of TE and is compiled and produced by Mogs.. There are many great quest guides out there.. Ambers Quest guide is 95% Amber. Meaning, Most of the info that created it has come from Amber itself. More than 1000 entries have been used to form this guide. Its charm is its simplicity. Its easy to use. It gets updated each month and is distributed by way of these notices. in fact… The August version is included with this Notice. Enjoy

Being one of the oldest Kingdoms in TE, we would naturally make friends. Amber has kingdom Allies with Integrity, Niagra, Temple of Doom, Kingdom of the Free, and Storybrooke. Its nice to have Friends

Amber is all about SOCIAL MEDIA
In AMBER, we can tweet. @kingdomofamberWe can Like and dislike things on Facebook.
We can Blog on our own Website.
https://kingdomofamber.wordpress.com/ is our website and was created and is maintained by our very own Mogs. I might have input on what is in that site. But Mogs makes it happen. I have heard more than one player from outside of AMBER praise that website as one of the most informational TE sites since Tiny Empire Wiki itself.

Speaking of Websites – Did you know that our website was started as a bit of a Joke? Group chat was having a discussion about recipe’s and someone thought it would be fun to have a blog about cooking. Cooking with Amber was started. When the idea of a Kingdom website came up, Cooking with Amber became an integral part of it. Today, Cooking with Amber remains one of the favorite parts of the website and contains 83 recipes. (some were even contributed by the King).

Amber has its own Castle. With Grounds, Docks, Festival Grounds.
This is a wonderful place where we can gather as an Amber Family for Parties and Events. Most importantly, with Tiny Empire, and Amber business at hand, its a place to log in our players for the oh so important job of Acre Making and Gold building.
This is a place for all of us. Feel free to drop some Lindens in the Kingdom Donation portals around the Grounds so that we can keep this place beautiful and Thriving.

Amber Castle is more than a place to Gather as Tiny Empire Players.
We have a nice Dock where we can occasionally host 7 Seas Fishing tournaments.
There is a chess board on the lawn where you can play with life sized chess pieces.
We have a marble boardwalk where groups can gather to sit and chat or have a nice romantic dance. (put your settings on midnight)
We have Festival Grounds in the sky.
The Castle itself is loaded with new adventures at every turn.
Its worth seeing for sure. 🙂

PATH TO ROYALTY
Today, Tiny Empires could grow by almost 40 brand new Kingdoms.
That is how many Amber players who have finished the Path to Royalty.
For those that dont know, The path is the list of 16 accomplishments that must be completed before a player can become a King or Queen of a Kingdom.

HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY AMBER

Festival Grounds.
We have official Festival Grounds in the sky far above Amber Castle. It features a Trading Tent if you wish to buy or sell Gold Bars, a place to have your fortune read and a big arena for Jousting.. If you look, you might even find some subjects that can get us Gold Windfall on the huds… Such as the Nephew’s Tower. The Scamps rocks and best of all? RATS !!! I was going to put in archery up there but I was afraid I would shoot myself in the foot.
Happy 7th Birthday Amber

Tiny Empires was never anything King Yikes really wanted to do. For 2 years, he had friends who continually bugged him about playing this game. On June 4, 2011 Yikes uttered the dreaded works. “Give me the GD Hud and so you will Stop Bugging me about it”.
27 days later – He was a Prince.
7 Months Later. – He was a Viceroy.
17 Months Later – He became King of Amber
None of which would have been possible without the tutelage of Mogs. The best Mentor of TE anyone will ever have.

ACRE PARTY’S
If Amber Members are getting close to an Acre oriented goal (1000 overall or 1000 personal for example), Let Yikes or Mogs Know. We will gather the troops and host an Acre party to put you over that last hump.
Sometimes we work so hard to get to a number and its frustrating because the gold just isn’t there or the availability of them goes to almost nothing.

Amber has Members in almost every habitable Continent in the world – From South Africa to South Chicago in the USA – From North and South America to Europe, India and Australia. We even had a crazy English chick that was supposedly living in China. Waves to Lucy if shes watching!!! I dont know if we have any players from Antarctica. If we do, those acres should be cold and cheap.
Happy 7th Birthday Amber!!! I hope everyone is enjoying these. Let King Yikes know. 🙂

Amber Notice Boards
We have message boards placed in populated area’s of Amber Castle that let us know when Important things have happened. If you ever wonder when the Alchemist, Festival or Trader were last in Amber? Go no further than one of those handy message boards. GV Mogs and Myself keep that board updated for everyone to see.. It also shows when the King sets Taxes last or the time of the last Land Tract..
TE is a 24/7 game. Unless you are a direct of the King, you wont always know when these things happen.

THE STORY OF THE LOW LIFE
Bad Blood had caused some players to move on to other realms. Shared players needed to be claimed and brought home. That is part of the nature of spilled bad blood. Former Members that lost reclaimed players were Australian and took offense to losing players in the middle of their Australian night, calling those that did such evil deeds “Low Life”. From then on, if events happen in the middle of the night, they are now referred to as Low Life Traders or Alchemists, etc…

The Amber Notice boards do more than tell of our last Trader, Alchemist, Land Tract, Festival and Set taxes. Look deeper than the message, you will realize that the color of each listing represents something to do with the item it describes.
Trader is in Blue – as in Blue Potion
Alchemist is Red – since her moon glimmers redly
Land Tract is Gray – as in Gray Potion
Taxes Set is Green – which is the color of money and as in Dark Green Potion

I will give 100 L’s to anyone who can tell me (King Yikes) why the Festival is listed in yellow
Enjoy

Whovians? Whovers? Who Says?

Some active members of Amber are avid fans of Doctor Who which has inspired some fun custom titles that reflect that interest. Outside the game interests actually help bring some members closer as a group than just TE alone.
If you have visited Amber Castle enough, you would learn that we have a transport system on the Castle grounds that allow us to easily transport from place to place. That transport is shaped just like a tiny Doctor Who Tardis. The same type of device that the good Doctor travels in

Amber has a love for American FOOTBALL. For 4 seasons, we have football pools to show our love and knowledge of the game. 2 pools are both online and presented through Yahoo sports and a lot of fun. One is a “Pick’em” pool. All you do is pick who you think will win in each weeks games. The other is a survival pool. Pick one game to win and you are fine. Pick wrong and you are done… The website does the work. All you have to do is pick and submit. They start in Sept. More to come in future facts 🙂

Since becoming King in November of 2012 – This King has
Donated Charity 412 times. (Freeloading Abbot keeps coming back)
Paid Taxes on behalf of all of Amber 408 times.
Is that a lot? I truly don’t. I do not know what other Monarchs have done.
What I do know? Whether its a lot or a little in comparison, I am proud to do it for all who play. 🙂
Its good to be a part of AMBER !!!!

Actually, some of these facts are NOT so fun. The power of the almighty Acre. We work hard for them. Amber Grows by about 12-1500 of them per week. Your King maintains a peaceful realm. But some players in this TE world will cut you throat for 100 acres. Players have ended friendships over acres. I was reluctant to play this game for good reason. But here I am. I do my best. I ask the same of all who play here. I pray that we can always enjoy ourselves as friends more than we can fret over Acres

Did you know…. Your King has made an SL Career out of being a bit of a Land Mogul. He has owned the 3 islands of Kashmir since 2009. If he had not have ascended to a Kingdom that was already formed named Amber, it is likely that he would have created his own Kingdom named Kashmir. But only if the name was not already taken… or even worse, STOLEN!!!
If you ever are in need of some SL land? Come see your King. Chances are, you can live on Kashmir.
Fun Fact Ideas? Please let me know.

LOW LIFE TRADER & MOON
Trader came July of 1174 and Alchemist came Nov of 1176

There is an art to making notices for the events of Amber. We can make notices to announce things that are upon us like Festivals, Traders & Moons. I have enjoyed making these fun facts. Some of us who are active like to know if we missed such things. They go hand in hand with our notice boards that are found at Amber Castle. We wish we had more players who would help us to announce things. Its part of what we do 🙂

When a Noun becomes a Verb

I HAVE BEEN “WOLFRAYed” !!!!
The randomness of the huds can be funny sometimes. Even cruel. Your King granted favor on a player named Wolfray that included a nice title.. Just before his favor was finished, Your king was given the punishment option & poor Wolfie found himself in prison. Landing him in TE gossip twice in a half hour. We all got a fun laugh out of it. (Wolfray included) From then on the practice of combining Favor with Prison has been defined as being “Wolfray’d” all in good fun ofc

The real world has a famous Cook / Chef named Julia Child
Second Life & Amber have Hazel & KittenJen
83 recipe’s are listed on our Amber Website & its safe to say that a majority of them have been submitted by these 2. Not to disrespect other contributors by any means, these 2 have demonstrated their Kitchen savvy on an awesome level. King Yikes is even found there.
If you do have something you would like to share, submit your recipes for website use. Mogs will help if you ask her nicely 🙂

THE MYSTERY OF DORMANT HUDS

I wonder who else this happens too !!!

A LOW LIFE Alchemist was spotted MAY of 1127. She must of been spotted on the Huds as I was going to bed for the night. My Hud went dormant before the picking round. I wake up about 4.5 hours later and find the Alchemist picking round on my refreshed hud, 8 years after she was actually here… I would have loved a Black Potion on a dormant Hud

Oh Yeah…. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mother Of Dragons HAZEL – I hope your day is special.

Amber celebrated its 7th Birthday a month ago. Mogs & I couldn’t choose a proper way to celebrate the event. Typically, we have a themed Party. but very few show up for those. These Fun Facts started as Birthday Facts. My goal was to do them daily for ONE month. We are there (give or take a day or 2). Most comments have been positive toward them.. Mogs is surprised they lasted a full month 🙂 I will now stop doing them daily. I wont stop them totally. I will pop one out as ideas strike me. Enjoy

(Not really a FUN Fact… But it is a FACT)
A Low Life Alchemist exposed herself along with her potions during the night. No photographic evidence was shared to prove this fact but we still have reason to believe that she did indeed show herself

Rumor has it, she sneaked in MAY of 1124.

On average, she might show up every 30 years. although she can be as soon as 20 or as long as 40 years. I would hope to see her again around 1154

we hope 🙂
