Each Thursday, our copy of ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.
This week’s topic is LAW ENFORCEMENT
Seems odd to think that in fantasy cities in which entire economies revolve around crime there is room for the men in blue (or crimson, or whatever). But the law does the best it can, even when faced with magic, mystical creatures, or rogue deities.
This is a wonderful topic. And I promise you I have LOTS of examples to choose from. I do! I am not an inherently lazy person, it PAINS me to avoid the list this week. Really! Not just enjoying a New Belgium brew here.
But this is not my week. I admit I duped you all. I made YOU do all the work while I did nothing. I even have an author, a wonderful one who has been incredibly patient with a certain blogger who can’t even get his days of the week strait
So please, continue with the linking up here. And THEN, come back tomorrow to see a list on this site. A post that, and this is just one man’s opinion, is the best Tough Travel post ever grace Fantasy Review Barn.
So I need you all to promise to come back. You will come back, right?
Good, that is sorted out.
Oh, but you still want a topic for next week, don’t you? How about this…
Join us next week as we look at EVIL LAIRS
The evil lair is where a great fantasy villain will spend the plurality of his or her time. (Topic provided by Christopher Scott Hand).
If you have a topic you want to see us cover, or if you have an entry for next week’s post but don’t have your own blog to put it on, please head over to the main Tough Traveling page and fill out the form at the bottom.
As always thanks for joining, feel free to join along at any time, and please check out my fellow travelers!
