Added DiffLines:

* FantasyPantheon: Different cultural areas worship different gods, though given only the first six books were published we only get a few mentions of some pantheons. The Harkunan pantheon worshiped in Sokara, Golnir and Old Harkuna (and a few more distant enclaves) has elements of Ancient Greek, Norse and Celtic mythology and is led by a Zeus like deity named Elnir. The Akatasurai pantheon is based on Shintoism. The Uttakuns are monotheistic and follow the god Ebron.

Added DiffLines:

* RatMen: The sewers beneath Yellowport are home to a colony of Rat Men. [[spoiler: They are pretty cowardly creatures individually but are more dangerous in numbers and their king is a tough fighter, at least against a beginning character.]]

* LostForever: Almost anything can be LostForever, so don't get too attached to your awesome equipment. A special prize, however, goes to the Savior of Vervayens Isle title; you can only get it [[spoiler:if you start off in Book 3, and only if you're dumped on the isle by the RandomNumberGod.]] If you don't get it then, you'll never get it.

Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGreyMorality: Neither the rightful heir to the throne nor the upstart dictator of Sokara are completely blameless, and the choice between them is actually a rather complicated one. The rightful heir is, obviously, "rightful" - that is, if you're a believer in monarchy. He's also idealistic and compassionate... and, it is implied, rather spineless as well and not above acting quite villainously when it suits him. The dictator, meanwhile, may be a bloody handed, iron fisted tyrant but he's also a very ''effective'' one (the old "...but the trains run on time" argument) and unlike the prince, he wears his beliefs on his sleeve. Furthermore: it is implied that much of the population actually ''prefers'' him on the throne, once again leading to the player having to question whether it's really okay for someone to rule just because they were born to the right man whilst a better qualified one exists.

* DeathIsCheap: It certainly is if you remember to pay for a resurrection (which is only cheap if your patron god is the god of death or war. And if you've remembered to leave some money aside to pay for all the equipment you just lost. [[SubvertedTrope Hmmmm.... maybe it's not that cheap after all]]). If you [[EveOnline only fly what you can afford to lose]], and don't rely on unique items, it's cheap (in fact, some strategies use death as a quick ticket back to Yellowport). If not, ContinuingIsPainful.

'''''The Fabled Lands''''' is a series of ChooseYourOwnAdventure gamebooks that were written by Dave Morris and Jamie Thomson. It was first released in the mid-nineties, and, to this day, is probably ''the'' most elaborate gamebook series ever written.
