* TheChosenOne: At the moment of the monarch of Aldis' death, the Golden Hart begins searching for a new one, marking their foreheads with a silver crescent when they are found and escorting them to the palace to be crowned. Anyone who would attempt to hurt them during the process is struck unconscious until the end of the coronation. This fact has led to many decrying Aldis as a false utopia, pretending to be a meritocratic democracy while in fact having its rulers be chosen by a divine ungulate. A counterpoint to this argument is that the Golden Hart doesn't actually offer any ''powers'' to its chosen monarch or even continues protecting them after the coronation. Theoretically speaking, nothing prevents the Aldins from choosing their own king (or, for that matter, having democratic elections) the instant the ritual ends while some fellow with a silver crescent on their forehead screams impotently.

** The Trebutane couldn't be more Jewish if they spoke Yiddish: they are currently exiled from their homelands, forced to live in communities within other nations which aren't always trusted. They worship only a single god in a world where polytheism is standard, and their society is dominated by rule-obsessed scholar-priests whose main job is analyzing and interpreting the laws which govern every aspect of Trebutane lives, including an arcane system of dietary restrictions. They are known for integrity and somberness, though noted for being more laid back among their own. Their man dress all in black with wide brimmed hats and long beards, and they have a tradition of being craftsmen, scientists and merchants.
* FantasyGunControl: No actual guns, but there are crystons, which are basically an exact {{Magitek}} equivalent of flintlock pistols. Only less likely to blow up in your hand.

** The Trebutane appear to be some form of SpiritualAntithesis to the {{Amish}}. [[note]]They dress like them and are strongly religious, but where the Amish are famously pacifistic and avoid modern technology, the Trebutane's religious beliefs center on the goddesses [[LadyOfWar Aulora]] and [[WrenchWench Goia]], and therefore pride themselves on their martial prowess and engineering skills.[[/note]]

* DoWrongRight: Any Roamer caught stealing is going to suffer at least a lot of stern rebuke from their kin for feeding the public stereotype of Roamers being thieves... but if the theft was [[GentlemanThief dashing and artful enough,]] there will be some [[NotSoAboveItAll grudging respect]] mixed in with it.
