* In one of the ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar Tarma and Kethry]]'' short stories, Tarma defends herself against an armed drunk with a broomstick because she wanted to avoid doing permanent damage if possible. Unfortunately, the drunk ends up cracking his head against the fireplace and dying. Fortunately for them, the drunk in question was well known and highly unpopular. ''[[ButtMonkey Unfortunately]]'' for them he also ran the town and was the only one the thugs he used for 'law enforcement' would heed, so his not-so-bereaved widow paid Tarma and Kethry off to lead them out of town.
