1. "Think about it like this, if we don't go we won't die."

"Okay, I really don't think that's as inspiring as you want it to be."

2. The Third Kingdom had the unnerving honor of being the only one in which OutKingdomers were assimilated instead of killed. This meant that not only were they not you average medieval fantasy world, but that they tended to contaminate the kingdoms around them. You really couldn't uninvent the things OutKingdomers brought with them.

3. Dragons were as old as the bedrock, put in place when the world was first formed from the mists. Performing tasks understood only by the First Men and continuing on their slow methodical paths around the world.

4. Everyone knew Binders and Goldens ate magic, what they didn't know was why.

Wicked step-sisters, on the other hand, were fair game. He watched the current questor stumbling valiantly around the maze. They were rarely every truly wicked, but the magic was strict about redemption.
