Added DiffLines:

* MerchantCity: Pandathaway, a port city which is a commercial hub and caters to visitors looking for goods. There is practically nothing that's not out for sale (this also makes it the center of the regional slave trade, much to the heroes' disgust). Merchants and guild heads run it.

* PrimeDirective: Utterly averted-at least in the first four books, none of the main band even stops to think if it's ethically or morally justified to introduce huge changes into the sociopolitical culture of another world[[note]] Of course considering that this is ''slavery'', it would likely be practiced for many more centuries on absent intervention and they did make an effort to establish a better system...[[/note]]. For example by introducing guns, which triggers an arms race and trying to end slavery by violent attacks on slaver caravans rather than waiting to see if it comes about naturally as society evolves past the need or allowing of slavery. Not to mention setting up their own ''kingdom'', forever changing the geopolitical makeup of the world. Possibly {{justified}} by the fact that Arthur Deighton/Arta Myrdhyn had already seriously interfered (including fighting a massive magical duel that laid waste to an entire valley) though it's not made clear whether he's an earth or world native.

* SexForServices: In return for passage to another city in the first book, the captain of the ship the party's taking demands that Doria heal his impotence... then prove it through having sex with him. She agrees reluctantly.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: {{Averted}}. When Andy-Andy becomes pregnant, Karl (the father) gives his immediate support to whatever choice she makes, even saying he would perform a D&C himself, despite having no medical training (reasoning their healing potions will fix any damage). She ultimately decides against abortion, and they have a son, though it's made clear it would have been perfectly acceptable.

In his internal thoughts, Karl specifically disclaims the idea that a blastocyst is a person.

* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: {{Demonstrated}} and subverted at a crucial moment in the Great Games of Pandathaway. [[spoiler: The sword misses completely, but distracts the other fighter long enough for his opponent to close with him and grapple instead.]]
