In a Shadow that ‘feels’ close to Amber, but that cannot be easily found, lies the Primal Pattern – the greatest Working of Oberon and his Mad Wizard Dworkin. It is on a great ledge, almost as if it was carved out of the side of a mighty cliff. Below and above is a Vast forest; on one side is a waterfall, on the other is a bubbling pool of lava, and both fall away into the lower forest.

Thus is this Pattern surrounded by Air, Water, Fire, and Earth.
