* FollowTheLeader: various places swapping time with each other are known as [=ISOT=] scenarios. ''1632'' is the best known copycat.

* StartingNewLife: Swindapa leaves Alba behind when it is taken over by the Iraiina, and heads to Nantucket, where she becomes Marian Alston's assistant (and later, her lover.) She's later able to return to her people, but she's changed quite a bit by that point.

Added DiffLines:

* SeductionProofMarriage: Played with in ''Against the Tide of Years''. Marian Alston and Swindapa, a married lesbian couple, visit a war chief and are offered a woman as part of the SacredHospitality. Alston, who takes marriage very seriously, has absolutely no interest in the girl, but Swindapa, who comes from a culture in which polygamy is the norm, is intrigued, even though she doesn't take advantage. This is somewhat par for the course in their relationship; throughout the book, Swindapa is rather shameless about her wandering eye, even though she never does anything more than look and occasionally enthuse.
-->"I promised to be monogamous, not blind."

* ChekhovsSkill: Quite a few, but among the prominent ones, Doreen Rosenthal being an astronomer comes in very handy when [[spoiler:convincing the elders of Swindapa's tribe, who are basically the caretakers of [[LandmarkOfLore Stonehenge]], that the Nantucketers are friendly.]]
* DaddysLittleVillain: Walker's daughter Althea, with aspirations to become a [[spoiler:[[NinjaBrat Claw of Hekate]]]] as well.

Added DiffLines:

* SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil: The Republic of Nantucket takes a very dim view of slavery, as shown by the fact that almost all of its major warships are named after Civil War heroes or abolitionists. Given that one of its most prominent citizens is a former slave, this probably shouldn't be surprising. Naturally, the BigBad, of the series, William Walker, heavily employs slavery in his empire.
