* 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.

* 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.

** Less dramatically, players starting in ''The War-Torn Kingdom'' are highly advised to make Yellowport their first destination and immediately perform the quest to slay a nearby dragon. It can be accomplished in an extremely small number of steps, is very easy (even for the weakest starting characters), and finishing it gives you just enough money to get yourself seriously started as an adventurer. It's all but the official tutorial quest of the game.
