Added DiffLines:

* SecretPolice: The Inquirers of the Shrines are above the law that they enforce. In a subversion of the expected tropes, all of the Inquirers we meet are heroic individuals. In fact, the CowboyCop [[spoiler: Bachstail]] specifically chooses [[spoiler: Lacryma]] as an Inquirer ''because'' she is [[ByTheBookCop unflinchingly law-abiding]] and disapproves of the Inquirers and their methods.

* TheChurch: The Shrines are an organization that [[CrystalDragonJesus imitates the role of the medieval Catholic Church]], except that the main objects of their faith are the World Trees. They are generally [[SaintlyChurch a force for good]], but they tend to be bogged down in obstructive regulations, their InternalAffairs are mavericks who don't answer to anyone, and one of the main villains is a SinisterMinister.

There's also [[{{Druid}} Druids]], who tend the World Trees and are generally respected by the Shrines, but not a part of their organization.

* OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow: [[spoiler: Saradiart is so unbelievably powerful that it takes an Original Kartia to kill him ''once'', and he can clone himself. There's simply no way that Toxa and co. are anywhere in his league, so Mona has to use elf magic herself to stop him.]]

* GeoEffects: A character who has the high ground does more damage with an axe. Spears work better from below, while swords are best used on level terrain.



* HonorBeforeReason: The Shrines' regulations often get in the way of getting stuff done, such as forbidding the creation of Phantoms. Lacryma is unwilling to use her full power for this reason.
