* OurGodsAreGreater: Lots of differences of opinion here. The Four: Astellus, Dalna, Illior and Sakor are the traditional deities of the Three Lands. However, Illior and Sakor are definitely favored in Skala, whereas people in Mycena and the northern regions prefer Astellus and Dalna. The ruling class of Plenimar, a nation in which most people worship the Four as well, instead favor the foreign god Seriamaius because of the power he promises. Meanwhile, the Aurėnfaie exclusively worship Aura (Illior) and it appears to vary from person to person whether or not they even believe in the other gods. At the same time, the Retha'noi are quite adamant that their moon goddess is ''not'' the same deity as Aura/Illior.

* LeftJustifiedFantasyMap: Averted.

* LeftJustifiedFantasyMap: Averted.Subverted. Interestingly, it ''does'' somewhat resemble Europe, but from a Greco-Roman perspective. The civilized nations are mostly concentrated on landmasses extending from the south of the continent with the Gathwayd Ocean stretching beyond and other (unnamed) nations on its far shores. Heading north, east or west, takes one into unsettled, barbarian or just flat-out mysterious territories.

** Ylinestra insisted that the sex was consensual and the unwilling magic was something she was doing afterwards, which Nysander stopped her from. Alec was more confused than upset. Nysander and Magyana both say that if she used magic to coerce him, that's wrong and should be punished, but they're not sure what really happened. Seregil's reaction is the odd one out, since Alec even admits he was bespelled and Seregil keeps chuckling over it.

The scariest part about Traitor's Moon is that the protracted debate over the possible treaty with Skala was actually considered FAST by Aurėnfaie standards!
Added DiffLines:
* CantArgueWithElves: Because of their long lifespans, convoluted customs, religious absolutism and Byzantine politics, the Aurėnfaie can keep a debate going for longer than most humans can endure. They can also hold grudges that outlast entire generations of humans.
