* ColdIron: In a sort of inversion iron, for reasons unknown, can't be carried when stepping, making it less useful for most purposes than any other metal. There is mention of the idea that an iron cage could hold a stepper prisoner.

Skip forward a decade or so, and society has been rocked by the new ability to Step. There is now no limit to space or resources, and so the global economy, no longer able to base itself on the scarcity value of commodities like gold and food, is smashed. Colonization of "[[TitleDrop The Long Earth]]" is subsidized by many governments under an attempted "Aegis Law," but no one buys the idea that governments have control over the Long Earth equivalents of themselves - especially as no matter how far they attempt to extend their authority, an entire planet is never more than a Step away. As governments crumble and become useless, rules and patterns emerge:

* IntelligentGerbil: The Beagles are basically upright wolves with larger brains. Their culture is built around lupine values, but with notable exceptions, such as their matriarchy and disregard for the lives of their own kind.

** It's also mentioned that Lobsang passes Sally and Joshua's personal Turing tests through such human behaviours as choosing to dress as IndianaJones when exploring an ancient monument, and deliberately pissing someone off to see how they react.

* TheMatriarchy: Beagle society is universally ruled by females. This seems to be merely a quirk of their species.

* DimensionalTraveler: Anyone with a stepper box can move to an alternate world at will, and natural steppers can do it without any device. Several hominid species have evolved that naturally have this ability.



* RobbingTheDead: Joshua takes a ring off a corpse he finds in Rectangles, the only artifact he's able to safely encounter.



* ChekhovsGun: The ring Joshua found in Rectangles.
* ClarkesThirdLaw: The Rectangles ring moves of its own accord in order to find and unlock an entrance to a hidden chamber. Sally reasons that there are a lot of technological ways to achieve this, but the device is clearly designed to seem magical to a primitive.



* IntelligentGerbil: The Beagles are basically upright wolves with larger brains. Their culture is built around lupine values, but with notable exceptions, such as their matriarchy and disregard for the lives of their own kind.



* TheMatriarchy: Beagle society is universally ruled by females. This seems to be merely a quirk of their species.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: As with his own reincarnation, Lobsang applies this principle to Agnes' institution to an artificial body; as before, this is to occlude any legal issues.



* PettingZooPeople: The Beagles.

to:

* PettingZooPeople: The Beagles.Beagles are anthropomorphic wolves.


Added DiffLines:

* ScavengerWorld: The Beagles are highly intelligent, but lack opposable thumbs and have a self-destructive tendency, which limits their technological growth. As such, they get their most useful resources from kobolds, who trade them bits and pieces of humanity, but especially leftovers from the Rectangles civilization.
