The "Witches" and "Warlocks" turn out to be [[PsychicPowers psychics]]. All are [[{{Telepathy}} telepathic]] to some degree, most of the females can use [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], and the males can [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleport]] and [[UpUpAndAway levitate]] themselves. A few [[SpiderSense precognitives]] are thrown into the mix as well. As to the elves and other fairy-tale creatures, [[strike:one should read the books to truly understand why they are there]]. There's a native fungus that shapeshifts in response to telepathy. See, that wasn't so hard.

The first book in the series is called "The Warlock in Spite of Himself" in reference to Rod. Once he lands on Gramarye, everyone says that he's a Warlock, which he continuously denies, since he has not a single shred of psi power. [[spoiler: It is revealed in the third book that he's got more psi power than ANYONE else on that planet, with the exception of his firstborn son, most likely...]]

Most of the books take place on the planet of Gramarye, where a colony was founded on a large island by what are essentially SocietyForCreativeAnachronism members.

Most of those that were unable to accompany the Emigres became the foundation of the resistance to PEST. The rest spent the next few centuries playing DungeonsAndDragons, since "they were used to being underground."

* OldShame: Original ''King Kobold''. Stasheff took criticism close to the heart.

to:

* ChristianityIsCatholic: Justified for novels set on Gramarye, where Catholicism is the only religion on Gramarye.religion. May get ridiculous in novels set outside Gramarye, where other Christian confessions don't seem to exist and Catholic stance (on things like celibacy) is always right.


Added DiffLines:

* OldShame: Original ''King Kobold''. Stasheff took criticism close to the heart.


Added DiffLines:

** 1971 and 1984 versions of ''King Kobold'' drastically differ in some plot points. ''The Warlock Unlocked'' written in 1982 mentions the events unique to the 1971 version, like Rod meeting the "good" time travellers, but in post-1984 books those never happened.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWarOnStraw: Enemies tend to be one-dimensional and their underlying motivation is rather ludicrous. Be they anarchists, totalitarianists, Catholic revisionists or death metal musicians.

''Warlock of Gramarye'' is a fantasy series by Christopher Stasheff's about Rodney D'Armand (it is said that he has at least 15 last names and they would take too long to list) A.K.A. Rod Gallowglass, his children, and, in one case, his ancestors. The series is sometimes referred to as ''The Warlock in Spite of Himself'' series, after the first novel.
