** It's still such a logistical nightmare that it sees limited use. The powder is produced in Avalon shadows, in small quantities, as a jewel polish. The bullets then have to be produced on Earth shadows where the purchaser has to find somebody willing to make custom ammo with completely inert powder as a propellant, again in limited quantities to avoid attracting the attentions of governments.

* {{Revenge}}: For most Amberites personal vendetta seems to be understandable, even desirable. Merlin at one point muses that if someone killed his father, he would get revenge, just like [[spoiler: Luke/Rinaldo]].

In 1991, the TabletopGame ''Amber Diceless Role Playing'' was released, followed by ''Shadow Knight'' in 1993; the expansion ''Rebma'' was announced but never released. There was supposedly a prequel series in 2002-2006 by another author... but they [[CanonDiscontinuity never happened]], as confirmed by GeorgeRRMartin and NeilGaiman, two friends and colleagues of the late Roger Zelazny. During his life, Zelazny had repeatedly and firmly turned down the possibility of an anthology of Amber stories by other authors.

* UnderwaterCity: Rebma is an underwater reflection of Amber, where everything in the city is duplicated in mirror image. The city's magic enables people to live and breathe underwater. Anything that happens in Amber is reflected in Rebma, which is why Rebmans are dubious about the machinations of the Amberites.

* BadassBoast: Corwin, being a poetic sort and a certified {{Badass}} and having no shortage of self-regard, gets several of these. In his own series, Merlin is far more humble and conflict-shy but even he manages a few. -->'''Scrof:''' Do you know the odds of a Chaos Lord coming this far to go two out of three with a Dweller?\\ '''Merlin:''' One out of one should be enough.
