* MadeASlave: Officially, there aren't any "slaves" in Silvanesti, only convicts put to work. But the reality is that oppressively high taxes and prejudice against the Kagonesti makes it more along the lines of chattel slavery. Later on, fugitive slavers become a problem in Qualinesti territory.



* MoralDissonance: Anaya abducted Mackelli from an outlying Silvanesti farm when he was a baby. She isn't planning to make him the next Guardian because the rules apparently dictate that the mantle must be accepted by a female (she didn't notice his gender when she ran off with him). There's nothing to indicate that his parents were abusive or neglectful. You'd think someone would have brought it up at some point that, you know, they should at least let them know he's not dead.

* AnachronismStew: Quite possibly the most glaring example of this in any Dragonlance work. Huma is mentioned several times in ''Firstborn'' as an example of a great warrior and dragonslayer. In ''Qualinesti,'' the Dark Amulet's power can only be contained by a silver cloth created from Gwyneth/Heart's skin. Seeing as the trilogy takes place 1000 years before the Third Dragon War and centuries before Solamnia was even founded, [[{{SarcasmMode}} we can only assume that elves had access to time travel.]]
