“Why does everyone run toward a blood-curdling scream?" mumbled the Senior Wrangler. "It's contrary to all sense.”
--
“It's partly true, too, but it isn't all true. People always think something's all true.”
--
"They built a wall and a temple on the edge of the Empire garrison town.
They lived and they died, They prayed to their gods,
But the stone gods did not make a sound.
And their empire crumbled Till all that was left
Were the stones the workmen found…"
--
“No man ever steps on the same dune twice, for it’s not the same dune and he’s not the same man.”
--
"Even a god cannot change the past."
--
“She had simply shed the mantle of slavery as easily as she had worn it, making him realize that she had never really worn it at all.”
--
“Do you think we can be friends?” I asked.
He stared up at the ceiling. “Probably not, but we can pretend.”
--
“I don’t do magic. I turn your attention back to last night and the big-ass sword I was carrying. My job is to run and swing.”
--
“She's only a girl. What kind of men are you?'
'Dead ones?' asked Drith, who yanked the door open and put her sword through Narses' throat.”
--
“Illusions may flatter us, confuse us, or betray us, Drakkonwehr. Or they may be images we cling to when the truth is too difficult to face.”
--
"Who can’t defend the wealth they have must die, or share with the rover bold."
--
“Dragons were notoriously finicky about whom they ate, and thought it the height of bad manners to be kept waiting by their selected fare.”
--
“[...] the whole idea of stealing fantastically dangerous weapons presents the would-be perp with inherent dangers and contradictions: When you are wrestling for possession of a sword, the man with the handle always wins.”
--
“The Lion banner sways and falls in the horror-haunted gloom;
A scarlet Dragon rustles by, borne on winds of doom.
In heaps the shining horsemen lie, where the thrusting lances break,
And deep in the haunted mountains, the lost, black gods awake.
Dead hands grope in the shadows, the stars turn pale with fright,
For this is the Dragon's Hour, the triumph of Fear and Night.”
Modern concepts of fair trials and justice are simply nonexistent in Zalanthas. If you are accused, you are guilty until someone important decides you might be useful. It doesn't really matter if you did it or not.
