* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Actually something of a return to the original voodoo-zombie tradition. The "plods" of the East are corpses that were deliberately reanimated with pymary, and are widely used as a cheap source of slave labor. They are considered quite ordinary in the countries that "employ" them; making a mindless magical meat-puppet do punishing work for days at a time is said to be a more humane practice than enslaving living, feeling humans.

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]].

Events are quickly complicated by the appearance of the "Red Berry Boys", a gang of criminals who at first appear to be simple slavers, but are soon discovered to have a stranger and much more disturbing agenda. That agenda appears to have an uncanny number of connections to Sette's mission, and as such Sette inadvertently finds herself wrapped up in their schemes. It's not long before she and Duane are in over their heads and under fire from all sides. Priorities change from just carrying out her appointed task to living to see the next sunrise.

Added DiffLines:

**Alderobe has enforced religious equality, but it also has an ironclad caste system based on hair color. People of different classes are segregated and forbidden from marrying each other, and they are expected to take stereotypical careers. (Subverted in that the castes have real physiological differences: the upper caste, the Coppers, has a lifespan of centuries and almost no talent with pyramy. The lower class, the Plats, die before 30 and are the most skilled wrights in the world. Double subverted in that this isn't a natural state of affairs: the castes are reinforced by an artificial khert and the laws against mixed-caste marriage.) It also has ubiquitous sexism, with women being barred from the public sphere and from practicing pymary in all but the rarest circumstances.
**Cresce is an honest-to-Twins communist state with social equality -- but the people living there have no autonomy, and the minority religion's members are ruthlessly hunted down and killed.
**Everyone hates the two-toed lizards. Everyone. [[spoiler:At least one said lizard decides to fight back, but since everyone is indirectly responsible for the current state of the two-toes, he just starts killing everybody.]]
