** Of course, the so-called book is really just the disorganized ramblings of another exile who came home, who they decided was a genius [[ImNotAHeroIm without his consultation]].

*** Of course, none of this prevented Recluce from using terrorist tactics against civilians in a duchy of Candar in the very first book,nor engaging in piracy in the later books. The suffering of associated order magi is their cross to bear alone.

** Further, there are extremely practical reasons that certain advances we made in technology cannot be used. Firearms, for example, could be disastrous from a tactical standpoint when one relatively weak chaos user (not necessarily even powerful enough to call them a mage) could heat the gunpowder, and internal combustion engines generate raw chaos which is much more powerful in the universe of Recluse than ours. There's a reason that most technology that actually get used requires black Order-imbued iron, and using too much of that creates Chaos concentrations elsewhere in the world. A major criticism of Recluse is that their over-concentration of Order is responsible for the constant war and other social evils of Candar.

* HeroesWantRedheads: This, RedHeadedHero, and FieryRedhead figure prominently throughout the series; and are repeatedly played straight, inverted, subverted, and twisted around various ways that indicate a significant AuthorAppeal.

* ImNotAHeroIm: Most of the main characters are exiles from Recluce (or in one case, Westwind), because they develop strong Order magic powers. They consistently resist being labeled as "order-masters", but insist they're just simple woodworkers/blacksmiths/engineers/etc.
* Through two of the three books he appears in, Justen continually insists that he is not a druid, even after having passed their magical trials to become one. He eventually capitulates and accepts the designation, though only with qualifications (a "sort of druid").

* FantasticNuke: Figures heavily into the climax of ''The Order War''.
** For a while, the possibility of an ''actual'' nuke is tossed about, [[AbortedArc before the idea is thrown out and never spoken of again.]]



*** It's also a method of limiting the number of Order Masters. Due to the balance of chaos and order, a concentration of one will cause a concentration of the other. By offering prospective Masters minimal guidance so they will instead pursue other crafts, the chance of a chaos concentration forming is reduced.
