Funny: The Elenium
  • This classic exchange:
    Anybody: "Whose turn is it to cook?"
    Sir Ulath: "Yours."
    • Turns into a nice little Brick Joke when the rest finally catch on, and decide to quietly leave Ulath to do the cooking from then on.
    • And becomes a Brick Joke yet again in the Tamuli when Kalten, distracted over a personal matter, asks Ulath who's turn it is to cook. Ulath gives the usual answer, and Tynian chides Kalten for forgetting.
  • Berit, in his attempts to impress Dolmant, offers to teach history and manners to Talen. When Talen becomes offended, Berit backhands him out of a saddle, disarms him, and kicks him to the ground. All without losing the smirk on his face.
  • The whole part about Sparhawk and Kurik attempting to break into the house.
    • Especially the naked woman on the roof.
  • Sephrenia's reaction to learning that the phrase "little mother" was used by the entire Pandion order as a nickname for her and as a password.
    Sephrenia: "Why didn't anyone tell me?"
    Sparhawk: "We all thought you knew."
  • Lillias' Large Ham moment, now with Gag Boobs included.
  • Avin Wargunsson's death and funeral. He's killed by being drowned in a barrel of wine; once he's discovered and removed from the barrel, his entire body is stained- in essence, he was dyed purple. Nobody at the funeral could keep a straight face at the sight.
    • Nor could any of the Knights (or Patriarch Bergsten) when they got word of it.
  • Bevier going undercover in Scarpa's army. He studied as an actor, so he naturally plays a part. Unfortunately, as the narration notes: 'His intent was obviously to appear dangerously competent. Instead, he was achieving the appearance of a homicidal maniac.'
  • Upon discovering that the Undead Knights surrounding the castle will do nothing as long as you don't touch the cornerstones they guard, Talen convinces Berit to push one over. Hilarity Ensues as the entire small army of Undead Knights domino over the entire perimeter of the palace.
  • "The other murderers thought Bersola was crazy. Candor compels us to admit they were probably right."
  • A member of the intelligentsia in Tamul is rather insistent that Trolls don't exist. Ulath persuades him otherwise by having the illusion of a Troll he befriended kick in the door and confront the man.
  • In Domes of Fire, Empress Elysoun wears a very special dress to a banquet- a dress which purposely doesn't have a front aside from a cushion of lace, meaning that everyone spends most of the banquet staring at her tits.
