Ah, I see. I suppose there is some distinction to be drawn between guns and swords, presumably the whole "elegant weapon" bit, to one extent or another. Or, I'm just over-thinking this.
I completely understand keeping Corwin's powers in check, as well as somewhat nebulous. I was just curious about how broad his portfolio is, to wrap my head around his abilities. That translation bit was really what I was wondering about, and how closely the official language corresponds to his actual portfolio.
Thank you for clarifying.
Also, since I'm rather new here, thank you (and the rest of the Suspects, Usual and otherwise) for creating this fascinating (and thoroughly enjoyable) setting.
