* PragmaticVictory: Queen Sonorie limits blind patriotism in a time of war, shows patience and restraint, has many allies and friends instead of constant paranoia, and refuses to develop a WMD with massive collateral damage even if it could help her conquer the world. But behind closed doors, she's the one who [[spoiler:ripped her husband's mind open with neurotoxin to extract his Alderode state secrets, and plans to do the same on a daily basis to cement her new world order]]. She makes [[KillEmAll General Bell]] look like a spoiled brat on a throne.

The main story revolves around rude, loud-mouthed [[LoveableRogue Sette Frummagem]], daughter of the Lord of Thieves. Sette is on a mission from her Da,' and she'll lie, cheat, and steal to make sure it's a success (she'll lie, cheat, and steal anyway). Condemned to aid her in her rotten endeavours is a rotten corpse by the name of Duane Adelier, who seems [[MagicKnight oddly talented with the supernatural]], and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent oddly not laying motionless in the dirt]].

* NoWomansLand: Alderode doesn't give you a ton of options if you're female; women are meant to be wives and mothers and little else. (Unless they're from the Platinum caste; then they're often 'encouraged' to go into the sex trade.) They're not really expected to have jobs and ''certainly'' not have careers outside their ghers, plus they're not allowed to own property, vote or even use pymary. It says a lot when a woman's best chance for real power and autonomy is to choose to be a Third Option and legally become a man; plenty of women from the Copper caste, who are relatively more liberated thanks to their long lifespans, take this route. The other countries on the continent, particularly the matriarchal Cresce, condemn such misogyny as incredibly backward and barbaric.
