Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Tales of the Questor is a webcomic by one Ralph Hayes (RH) Junior.It tells the tale of Quentyn, a young anthropomorphic raccoon (or "Rac Cona Daimh" or "Racconan" but who are we kidding?) who spends his days with adventure books and daydreams. When the traditional ritual where young kits choose their career for life approaches, young Quentyn shocks everyone and becomes the local laughing stock as he declares his desire to become a Questor - a type of noble hero-for-hire whose like hasn't been around for ages, and who are practically nothing but adventure book fluff. But, it turns out there are legal requirements to have one when someone offers. So begins Quentyn's own adventure - he's now an official Questor and it's up to him to do what a Questor must, even if it means having to face great dangers and things he's never had to encounter during his young, sheltered life — and practical exile as he's tasked with a gigantic quest that requires him to head into the lands of humans.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })TotQ borders between a humoristic adventure comic and a more dramatic story about Quentyn's maturing and the problems he faces due to still being a young boy, with stronger emphasis on the serious side as it has progressed. The comic is also notable for its writer's tendency to convey his religious and political views through it, though these traits have decreased over time and transferred into other mediums. At its best, the comic works its themes into an imaginative fantasy allegory, much like C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia novels, and it constructs a deep world that helps alleviate these problems to make Hayes' themes feel more palatable.Pretty well on the Idealistic side of the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism.The first ones are also collected in four volumes.Has a Spin-Off comic: Quentyn Quinn, Space Ranger. Also currently ongoing is yet another arc that brings both Tales of the Questor and Quentyn Quinn Space Ranger together: The Probability Bomb.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

comment
Still Got It: Squidge, being a bogeyman, was despondant because he thought he wasn't scary anymore (his intended victim thought he was cute). In the Rat King Arc, he successfully scared off a bunch of rat wights by appearing as a monstrous cat, which delighted him to no end. Then he used his powers to turn Rahan's prank completely upside down.

Anti-Magic: There are small cheap rods that soak up magic like a sponge but burn out quickly, rat-wights that eat magic and use it to duplicate, and dragons are completely immune. Granite is lux-proof, so granite stonehenges are used as containment fields for artifact tests and similarly violent magical tasks.

Decapitation Presentation: Non-villainous example when Duke Sturmhold is trying to rally his people to fight The Wild Hunt that's coming, using the new techniques Quentyn has told him about. The people see only their latest ruinously taxing duke asking them to pit mortal weaponry against immortal spirits, and call for proof that they should believe anything he says... at which point he holds up a banshee's severed head.

Post-Victory Collapse: Yeah, Quentyn, Son of Quinn, the Questor of Freeman Downs, is an unrelenting badass who can deliver the most Badass Boasts with the greatest of ease. It's just that afterward, he always realizes that he also happens to be a teenager who can bite off more than (he thinks) he can chew with the greatest of ease. At least the second time he didn't throw up.

Too Fast to Stop: Quentyn's speed-enhancing boots. Sadly, they were destroyed during the Wild Hunt when their heat buildup completely incinerated them. Word of God says that the enchantment resides in the buckles rather than the easily-damaged leather. As long as the buckles survive, all he needs is a new pair of boots.

Shapeshifter Baggage: Specifically averted with bogeymen. No matter what form they take, they retain their original (minuscule) strength and mass, to the point that a bogey taking on a really big form essentially becomes a cloud of blue gas. Played ruthlessly straight with spriggans...they hit really hard.

Born in the Wrong Century
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_38b48685
comment
Quentyn in particular; Despite extensive studies he's a "black ribbon" Lux user - just one step above no power at all. He's clever and determined enough to scrape through school through rote memorization - but not brilliant enough to be a scholar or engineer. He's strong, fast, tough and well trained - but short even for a racconan his age. Put another way: he knows lots of subtle low-power spells, he's great at MacGyvering both tech and magic, and he's a Combat Pragmatist. In short, he's a pretty darn good Questor.

Foregone Conclusion: Narration is always first person by Quentyn, looking back on the events of the story. You don't know how long after it is, and what condition he's in at that point, but you know he lives at least long enough to record the story in his journal.

Deus ex Machina
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_3fca462c
comment
On a far less Deus ex Machina note, Quentyn's elfshot pistol; a Magitek Automatic Crossbow which normally has "a hundred shots. Take a day or more to recharge, though..." Except his fires all one hundred at once. Turns out its regulator had been broken off, which a friend of his Wrench Wench childhood friend thought was a slick trick - and that he was lucky it didn't blow up in his hands. He then mods it so it won't, then adds a replaceable clip and settings to control rounds fired and spread.

Magically Binding Contract: The Fae must follow the codes of conduct their creators bred into them, even though those creators are long dead and most of the "rules" haven't made the least bit of sense for millennia.

 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_45cec696
comment
God Guise: Non-Rac Cona Daimh lux users tend to end up with their own cargo cult, even if some of them don't have much power. Actually, Word of God (and now the comic) states that human lux-users, while extremely rare, are far more powerful than Rac Cona Daimh. The opposite is true for the Rac Cona Daimh, where the inability to see or use lux is so rare that it's considered a disability. The widespread use of lux among the Rac Cona Daimh means that they understand it well and have been able to develop most of their technology to incorporate it. So while the Rac Cona Daimh may not be nearly as powerful as human wizards, they are much more proficient and knowledgeable in their use of lux and lux-based technology.

Adult Fear: The arc "Hunter of Shadows." Imagine that your child has been suffering from inexplicable night terrors— unable to sleep for fear of monstrous creatures creeping out of the shadows at night to get him. Then one stormy night you come running to his room to find out that his terrors are REAL-- and are crawling up onto his bed after him... When the fae princeling kidnaps all the children of the village in penalty for the Duke's temerity in standing against him. The Duke's expression and the wailing of the townsfolk speaks for itself.

Corrupt Church: The Universal Church is strongly hinted to be this, if not an outright Religion of Evil. Subverted in the arc after the dragon hunt, where Quentyn's party is receiving sanctuary with a monastic community. The monks avoid the group as much as possible and generally act awkwardly suspicious despite their generosity and kindness, but suspicion of strange guests isn't unwarranted when your monastery is actually a secret sanctuary for peaceful werewolves.

Achievements in Ignorance
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_57b74bd4
comment
Achievements in Ignorance: The creation of Wildcard was accomplished by three youngsters who had gotten themselves drunk in celebration of Quentyn's becoming a Questor. Once sober, none of them had the slightest idea how they did it. Neither did certified experts, at least until they break out the "Deep Runic Scanner" - and discover fractal patterns for the first time in their universe. In the following page, it's revealed that they "invented" eight new runes. Those are logic gates, with the implications thereof explained in the page after that. According to Word of God, alcohol doesn't affect Racconans in exactly the same way as (most) humans. There's a point where they get smarter but lose all inhibitions - Drunken Mastery. On a far less Deus ex Machina note, Quentyn's elfshot pistol; a Magitek Automatic Crossbow which normally has "a hundred shots. Take a day or more to recharge, though..." Except his fires all one hundred at once. Turns out its regulator had been broken off, which a friend of his Wrench Wench childhood friend thought was a slick trick - and that he was lucky it didn't blow up in his hands. He then mods it so it won't, then adds a replaceable clip and settings to control rounds fired and spread. Hayes seems fond of this trope. Arlen was just trying to clean up a toxic village, and getting repeated browbeatings from Obstructive Bureaucrats over the bio-engineered plants he's designed for that purpose. He comes up with a pseudo-scam to get a permit; his uncle owns most of said toxic village, but though he can't actually profit from the tainted land, he can claim the deeds as the "undisclosed assets" of a company to which the bureaucrats would grant said permit. He's even able to get permits for other biologists doing odd research. Then the bureaucrats discover the Loophole Abuse, and change the laws to have the plants destroyed. But on the day the cops come to torch the fields, the sun rises on a field full of bushes bearing berries of pure aluminium. Read about the stuff on That Other Wiki and you'll realize that he just became the richest racconan on Aerith. In addition, it turns out some of them don't just process it into metal, but crystalize it into Corundum.

Fantastic Racism: Due to their history, many Racoonans and Humans have very low opinions of each other's species. The human bigots are convinced that the Racoonan are members of the Unseleigh court and/or followers of demons while many Racoonans, especially those sympathetic of the Expansionist Party, regard humans as little more than dangerous animals so stealing their land and risking war with them is of no moral significance to them.

Never Land
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_5e472a52
comment
Never Land: The elves, with an unpleasant twist — due to a goof by a now-reviled elven king (who wanted his people to be able not to die of old age and apparently went to a Literal Genie for his wish) elves are perpetually young — but not long-lived. They only live to about twenty or so, and then die of "old age". The result is that most of the elven territories are inhabited by half-wild children. To make things even worse, it's implied that, as a result, their civilization has gone from being able to match the humans or even the Sidhe to something out of Lord of the Flies. Half-elves, although longer-lived, still have much briefer lifespans than humans or Raccoonan — they only get anywhere from ten to twenty years more. There is allegedly an artifact out there somewhere that can fix the problem, but it's missing so it looks like our hero Quentyn has another item to keep an eye out for in his grand quest.

It Tastes Like Feet: Upon officially becoming a Questor, Quentyn's father takes him to the local pub to celebrate. However, when Quentyn drinks a mug of seriously hard liqour, he has a violent reaction to the taste serious enough to sprint outside to throw up. While the adult patrons are yucking it up at that, Quentyn angrily asks if you are supposed to drink that stuff or spread it on your body.

Badass Normal: The farmer's son. He not only enters and escapes Tir Na Nogh in a nearly-impossible yet completely successful rescue mission without a moment's hesitation, but he takes on an Unseleighe Sidhe armed with nothing but pies and lives to tell about it. This trope does not do his deeds justice. Quentyn as well. He's for all intents and purposes only an "amateur" lux user, his most common use of magic is from magic items (most of which are half-broken and only work when and how they want). On top of that, he's a three-foot tall adolescent raccoon-person. And yet his periodically-repeated (and ever-growing) Badass Boast is still entirely true.

Heroic Sacrifice: Quentyn believes this to be the only option after inadvertently releasing (and, if he doesn't succeed, feeding and reenergizing) the Rat King. Nothing at this venture is going to save him, and if it gets loose the entirety of Antillia will be next on its menu, so he has to make sure it dies with him.

Author Appeal: RH Junior really likes his anthropomorphic raccoons. Though it has to be said not to the point of fetish. In a certain D&D game RH was playing, his character, starting out as a Gnome Rogue, eventually got polymorphed into an anthropomorphic raccoon. From that point on, things that happened in the D&D campaign made it into the comic and vice versa (the Elf Shot pistol started out as a Magic Missile crossbow in the D&D campaign). Which leads us to: Author Avatar: Quentyn is not quite a direct avatar of RH, but after the above mentioned changes in his D&D character, Quentyn became more like the character, who in turn was more like the 'real' RH than Quentyn originally was.

Fictional Political Party
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_67d90683
comment
Fictional Political Party: Antillia has a more relaxed approach to politics than the American two-party system; parties form around political goals and dissolve after those goals are met, instead of pursuing goals and garnering support over generations - the Rac Cona Daimh hate the very idea of generational power gathering in such a manner, seeing it as reminiscent of the monarchies that the nation was founded as a sanctuary from. Exposition; all seven Hidden Elf Villages are currently in a downturn; though they were built in a fertile and wealthy area, they've been cooped up in it for over a century, and are starting to feel the crunch in recycling metals and such. This has led to the rise of two particularly powerful parties; the Open Traders, who want to begin carefully trading Luxtech with nearby kingdoms for more minerals, and the Expansionists, who just want to steal land from nearby kingdoms.

Cheap Gold Coins: Averted. The seven villages are poor in metals, to the point that it's becoming a major political issue. Also, racconan money consists of beads and rings, rather than coins, with the only coins in the setting being human coins found in old treasure troves. This leads to a gold coin being more money than most racconans see in a lifetime.

Justice by Other Legal Means: Owning books by Rosad Beither the monster maker, or wearing a ring with his symbol is not illegal. Running questionable experiments in your own home lab is also not illegal. Animal cruelty, on the other hand very much is a crime, especially if you steal your neighbor's pet cat to do it.

Fantasy Gun Control
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_6bcfbc7e
comment
Fantasy Gun Control: Partially subverted, in that we see a Racconan guard captain use a shotgun in an early story arc, but aside from Quentyn's lux-shooting Magitek Automatic Crossbow, and a quick bit with a homeowner firing up through his roof at Quentyn(mistaken for a thief), we never see another firearm. Somewhat justified, since the Racconans have few metal resources and no trade ties. Also justified because of their inherent physical limitations, as explained here. The long and short of it is that they're still at the flintlock stage of development, so until they invent cased ammunition, any gun big enough to actually hurt something bigger than they are (which is just about anything) will send any Racconan without Stout Strength flying backwards from recoil. Most of the fuzzballs aren't even big or strong enough to carry a BFG the size of a human rifle. And also, they can fire lightning from their hands and don't really need guns in normal situations. It's like they come with a built-in gun. "There's no such thing as an unarmed Racconan."

Culture Clash: While the raccoons had a deep understanding of Lux, humans believed it was powers of the supernatural, and weren't able to comprehend when Racconans tried to explain it... so (in-universe) a group of Racconans adopted words like "magic" and "wizard" to pose themselves as supernatural beings. The raccoon leaders and the clergy were... not amused, but the terminology stuck.

From Bad to Worse: The entire dragon arc has been a big Break the Haughty arc for an overly-confident Quentyn. It starts with the duke's hired swords abandoning them in the middle of the night. Then Sam left too. Then Pelinor refuses to follow him into the dragon's lair. Then it turns out they've tracked down the wrong dragon—this one is bigger. Oh, but Sam and Pelinor come back! And they kill the dragon! But Ember was maimed in the process, and they have to put her down. And then it turns out there were two dragons, and when a dragon smells a dead dragon, it goes into a berserker rage. The younger one starts burning the countryside with no one able to stop it. And then, to top it all off, the duke's personal priest comes back, admonishes him for working with "witch-rats," and all but announces the start of a holy crusade to bring the region back under the church's control—especially the neighboring duchy.

Doing In the Wizard
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_86d4f985
comment
Doing In the Wizard: After over a hundred comics of treating Lux as just the Racconans' technical term for their medieval-era world's Force Magic version of Functional Magic, complete with constant uses of terms like "spells," "magic," and "wizard," the author devoted a text-heavy side arc to explaining the difference between Lux and witchcraft, both of which are referred to In-Universe as magic. The former is a naturally occurring, if somewhat fantastical, force that behaves according to a set of discernible laws, while the latter is mostly sleight of hand and obfuscation used by hucksters, cultists, and other people with more ambition than morals to gain power and influence. Another side arc, much later in the comic's run, went further and showed the tragic consequences of Racconans referring to their magic-like powers as magic, implying that they weren't even going to use magic-related terminology anymore. Part of this split can be explained from a Doylean perspective by the author's religious beliefs. According to Christian hardliners, all magic is consorting with demons or evil spirits. Luxcraft is very emphatically not consorting with demons or evil spirits, hence, it isn't magic in the author's eyes. Also makes for a more coherent magic system, given that the Rac Cona Daimh are actually manipulating electromagnetic forces. Also a case of Shown Their Work, as the author points out that many "magical" terms were once scholarly ones: "Wizard" once meant "sage" or "Master", "magician" came from "magi" which meant "Scholar", and "grimoire" is actually "gramarye" AKA "Grammar" or sentence structure. The major unseleighe and seleighe fae are a minor inversion, they are explicitly said to have abilities that even Raconan wizards state should be impossible. And during the Wild Hunt arc we see the Prince use powers that are blatantly supernatural such as turning the very land itself against Quentyn when he got sick of being jerked around. Partially justified in that fae are extra dimensional beings who operate according to universal rules that aren't applicable to mortal races but are clearly capable of using lux as well, making it a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane

Bait-and-Switch Tyrant: Elder Gilder. In private, he says that Quentyn is the only one besides himself who takes the role of Questor seriously, and acknowledges that he's a rather good one. He just thinks that the existence of the position is in itself dangerous. The next day, Quentyn proved himself so worthy of the title that Gilder holds pretty much the grandest festival the village has ever seen in Quentyn's honor. Later, the Duke of Fenwyck. Our first impression of him is that of a tyrant who steals from his own people and drives them further into poverty. It turns out that he was forced into it by the Fae Prince, and when Quentyn gives him the knowledge to fight back and protect his people, he immediately takes the opportunity.

Eldritch Abomination: While not as immune to being punched out as your average world-ending horror, the rat-king is an absurdly powerful and remarkably intelligent being with only one goal: to feed. Within the comic it's demonstrated as wanting and able to destroy and consume anything and everything with lux. Word of God says that includes pretty much anything alive. Actually, the shadow rats produced by the rat-king are ephemeral and sustain their existence by consuming Lux. The rat-king itself is a flesh and blood creature that needs actual food to survive... and sends out the shadow-rats as drones to fetch food back to itself. Also subverted when Quentyn fights a "Chooley", a swamp kraken that isn't nearly as tough as it looks. To be fair, he would have been in trouble if Wildcard wasn't such an impressive weapon — he'd only expected Mock Tentacles (small aquatic creatures with a single weak tentacle on their backs, said to be a low-budget attempt at a moat monster), and the swamp kraken is several times his size (besides looking a lot like Cthulhu).

Circle of Standing Stones: The Racconan homeland of Antillia is littered with stonehenges, which were built essentially as magical incinerators. The ring of lux-proof granite acts as a containment field when destroying dangerous or unstable artifacts, as well as spell testing and other violent magical tasks.

 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_8cb1a369
comment
Took a Level in Jerkass: Quentyn gets a lot more bitter and irritable during the Dragonslayer arc. It's implied to be a combination of the cold weather driving a need to go into hibernation and the fact that he's started to give up on ever finding the artifacts. He seems to be back to his old self in recent strips though.

Ancient Conspiracy
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_8e5c862
comment
Ancient Conspiracy. The Beitherite Brotherhood; a coalition of Racconan supremacists, the neo-Fakir movement, "ethical controversy" philosophers, militant anti-theists, prominent businessmen, researchers, bureaucrats, politicians, etc. Quentyn ruined their plans three times; first, he destroyed one of their bioweapons programs when he slew the Rat King, then he exposed a False Flag Operation by the Expansionist party(a hawkish political faction that wishes to steal land from Antilla's neighbors) followed by foiling a plot to eliminate an entire village's worth of political opponents by repossessing Freeman Downs. However, that last defeat was the straw that broke the camel's back: the conspiracy blew pretty much all their resources buying up the debt owed by Quentyn's predecessor, and Quentyn's self-exile cancelled it out; being unable to repossess the village left them bankrupt. This reduced them to a Brotherhood of Funny Hats; "a bunch of old farts with signet rings and secret handshakes who met once a month to talk about Rosad Beither and tell each other what daring and bold revolutionary thinkers they all were." He wiped out his civilization's version of the Illuminati without even knowing about it.

Symbol Swearing: Has occurred twice thus far. Once when Quentyn remembered, after being tossed into the marsh, the water-activated dynamite in his pocket. Once when the Junior Questor gang gets trapped on a roof by a livid Beitherite, who in this case is the one doing the swearing. Quentyn expresses his disdain for dragons.

Sure it is underhanded politics in order to avoid footing the bill but its awfully reminiscent of certain modern day politician shenanigans than outright blueblood idiocy or maliciousness.

Weak, but Skilled
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_9eb11fac
comment
Weak, but Skilled: The Racconnan race in general; two-foot tall "Lux"-wielding furries in a High Fantasy world of elves, dwarves, orges, etc... but their lack of power has led them to Analyze Magic Sufficiently to put them "head and shoulders" above the rest - the only Steampunk civilization on a world stuck in The Dung Ages. Quentyn in particular; Despite extensive studies he's a "black ribbon" Lux user - just one step above no power at all. He's clever and determined enough to scrape through school through rote memorization - but not brilliant enough to be a scholar or engineer. He's strong, fast, tough and well trained - but short even for a racconan his age. Put another way: he knows lots of subtle low-power spells, he's great at MacGyvering both tech and magic, and he's a Combat Pragmatist. In short, he's a pretty darn good Questor. The Racconnans are also this way to human Lux users: while a human may have enough power to level a forest, it's like "a Neanderthal with a club verses you with a crossbow."

Elsewhere, events are unfolding that seem to prove their fears entirely justified. And then without warning the scene shifts to... this strip.

Oh, Crap!: The Princeling when he finds out that, the moment he called the Wild Hunt on the "hairy little mortal", whose race and mystical cowlick made him taboo for such twice over, he completely and irrefutably screwed himself. And here's one from Quentyn. Beware, spoilers: Earlier, Quentyn facing the Rat King and its horde of shadow wights.

Impressive Pyrotechnics: Quentyn's malfunctioning Elf Shot pistol - which fires off its entire magazine in one giant burst, although it is later fixed. Also, the distress flare he uses to swat off a dragon attacking his luftship. The folks below literally ooo and ahh at the pretty lights in the sky.

Be Careful What You Wish For: Ralph has fun with this one. Zigzagged with Quentyn's wishes: Quentyn IS very careful, but later thinks he wished for the wrong things, and then learns that he's mistaken in his second-guessing. Played straight with Rahan. He wishes that he could get a real good look at Quentyn's face after a prank involving tar and feathering goes off. He does, right after the prank goes hilariously amiss. Quentyn, who has overheard Rahan, even lampshades that.

Loophole Abuse
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_b1dde8fd
comment
This is also the reason why Latin is used when communicating with the Fae, especially when it involves a boon: Latin, being a dead language, never changes. This means that any wish made in Latin can never be prone to Loophole Abuse due to language changes over time. Thus, a boon made in Latin is permanent, while one made in any other language is only good for a few centuries at best, and that's provided there's not a loophole in it due to slang terms or semantics.

Celestial Deadline: Quentyn will have officially outwitted the Wild Hunt and defeated the Unseleigh Prince if he is un-captured, "When the cock(rooster) crows the dawn." Too bad for him the Unseleigh Prince has killed every rooster in the valley. And too bad for the Unseleigh Prince that Quentyn's half-elf companion can perfectly mimic a rooster's crow so well her nickname is Rooster.

Pig Latin: The "Latin" that Quentyn requests his boons in is actually a modified form — it adds random syllables instead of "ay" and liberally sprinkles it with diacritics, but if you can sight-read regular Pig Latin, you can sight-read this, and figure out what he asked for before the narration explains it.

Bothering by the Book: Quentyn, of all people, pulls this on hostile politicians: A covenant clause means a contract will be passed someone's successor—in this case, Quentyn of Freeman Downs, who is considered the successor of Quentyn of Ridgedale. The clause must, by Racconan law, specify a number of generations—but if it doesn't, limitation protocols restricts it to one, which means it won't apply to Quentyn of Freeman Down's successor, something that the Expansionist Party overlooked. Quentyn, armed with this knowledge, goes out to fulfill the contract or die trying.

Unpredictable Results: Quentyn's magic sword, Wildcard, which can go from invincible to useless between attacks. Noteworthy in its tendency toward the useless side when it would be funny. If Quentyn's life is in danger, however, the results can be reeeeeeeeeally ugly, and even an apparently "silly" effect can turn out to be exactly the sort of vital delaying distraction needed to ensure Quentyn's survival. This may be justified by being an Empathic Weapon.

 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_cb70651c
comment
The major unseleighe and seleighe fae are a minor inversion, they are explicitly said to have abilities that even Raconan wizards state should be impossible. And during the Wild Hunt arc we see the Prince use powers that are blatantly supernatural such as turning the very land itself against Quentyn when he got sick of being jerked around. Partially justified in that fae are extra dimensional beings who operate according to universal rules that aren't applicable to mortal races but are clearly capable of using lux as well, making it a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane

Word of God
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_cc4b45f6
comment
Actually, Word of God (and now the comic) states that human lux-users, while extremely rare, are far more powerful than Rac Cona Daimh. The opposite is true for the Rac Cona Daimh, where the inability to see or use lux is so rare that it's considered a disability. The widespread use of lux among the Rac Cona Daimh means that they understand it well and have been able to develop most of their technology to incorporate it. So while the Rac Cona Daimh may not be nearly as powerful as human wizards, they are much more proficient and knowledgeable in their use of lux and lux-based technology.

While not as immune to being punched out as your average world-ending horror, the rat-king is an absurdly powerful and remarkably intelligent being with only one goal: to feed. Within the comic it's demonstrated as wanting and able to destroy and consume anything and everything with lux. Word of God says that includes pretty much anything alive.

Mage Killer: The rat-wights eat lux, which in racoonan society is extremely dangerous. Then there are dragons, who were clearly built to fight lux users. They're immune to all magic, but they are able to sense it and really, really hate it.

World of No Grandparents
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_d2771f82
comment
World of No Grandparents: The average Racoonan lifespan is 250 years, yet it has been nearly a hundred years since the last Questor went beyond the mistwall, yet we see nobody in the story who knew him personally, nor any of his family members. Possibly justified in that the red plague killed alot of the older Racoonans. There is some inconsistency though in that the current Elders of Freeman downs were 'no more then kits' when the plague hit, which means the Eldest of them has to be at least under 100 years old yet looks ancient, so it is possible the racoonans were just lying to the human scholar when he asked how long they lived. Word of God, they do live 250 years. The Elders of Freeman Downs are, in Racconan years, middle aged, but due to their rank cultivate white hair and beards. The High Eldest is the oldest Racconan in all of Antillia, is twice as old as any of the Elders of Freeman Downs, and one of the few survivors of the plague.

Hoist by His Own Petard: the fey prince, after he calls the Wild Hunt on Quentyn, who is protected by two separate ancient boons (One on the Racconans in general, one bestowed by the white stag), and ends up being forced to give Quentyn three wishes, and he ends up losing all his wealth of debts owed to him and, ironically, being forever barred from hunting the mortal plane.

Terminally Dependent Society: Discussed. Sam points out that the Raconnans seem totally dependent on lux-manipulation, to which Quentyn retorts that every civilization has certain technologies it depends on, and you could just as easily say that the human civilization is "dependent" on iron and fire.

comment
A God Am I: Ralph Hayes plays this one like a fiddle. Here's how it plays out: The Gragum Shaman plays this one straight Completely and soul-touchingly inverted in Brother Linnaeus' arc, when the Gragum chief asks Quentyn if he is God...then asks why God seems to have abandoned the Gragum. Quentyn's "letter delivery" for them is especially touching. Later on, invoked twice by Quentyn during his Badass Boasts, as he refers the Gragum Shaman's claim in both of them. Also the philosophy of Rosad the Monster-maker and his followers.

The Evils of Free Will: Deconstructed by the Fae, who Quentyn calls "a living object lesson in why God gave free will to all mortal souls." Being a Servant Race unbreakably bound to a code of laws made up by their long-dead creators, most of which they are completely aware no longer make the least bit of sense, has left them all half-mad at best - and the worst of them hardcore sadists who pride themselves on circumventing those laws to cause as much pain and suffering as possible.

Functional Magic
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_dfe120e5
comment
After over a hundred comics of treating Lux as just the Racconans' technical term for their medieval-era world's Force Magic version of Functional Magic, complete with constant uses of terms like "spells," "magic," and "wizard," the author devoted a text-heavy side arc to explaining the difference between Lux and witchcraft, both of which are referred to In-Universe as magic. The former is a naturally occurring, if somewhat fantastical, force that behaves according to a set of discernible laws, while the latter is mostly sleight of hand and obfuscation used by hucksters, cultists, and other people with more ambition than morals to gain power and influence.

Exact Words
 Tales of the Questor (Webcomic) / int_e9e35e8f
comment
Exact Words: An important point in the Wild Hunt arc. Black Tom is trapped and cannot warn the prince or free himself thanks to careful pre-planning on the prince's part. The Selieghe Absinthe also denies seeing Quentyn's track - while he hides in a pond not two feet away. Best used here and here This is also the reason why Latin is used when communicating with the Fae, especially when it involves a boon: Latin, being a dead language, never changes. This means that any wish made in Latin can never be prone to Loophole Abuse due to language changes over time. Thus, a boon made in Latin is permanent, while one made in any other language is only good for a few centuries at best, and that's provided there's not a loophole in it due to slang terms or semantics. Also, the hunt is over only when the cock crows the dawn—AND ONLY WHEN the cock crows the dawn. To the Prince's horror, a rooster does indeed crow the dawn, and the duke will swear to it before the Fae court. Turns out there was one rooster the Prince missed by not taking nicknames into account... One of Quentyn's boons is for the princeling to "return all you have taken by force or guile to this duchy". Notice that he didn't think to specify that it was taken from them.

Unskilled, but Strong: Since so few humans can manipulate lux, their adepts tend to be mostly self-taught. On the other hand, they can put a tremendous amount of energy into their workings, meaning that even their crude luxwork can still be quite dangerous.

Dumbass Has a Point: Squidge isn't exactly intelligent but he's still the one who finds a solution no one else noticed. The Junior Questors are attempting to distract a suspected cultist... by knocking on his door and trying to sell cookies to him. The suspect points out all the problems with this (they're kids selling cookies in the single most dangerous part of town and that it's very strange that they would try selling cookies at this time of night). They respond that they managed to get him to answer the door, so it must be working to some degree. The suspect acquiesces, and asks if they have macaroons.

Beware the Nice Ones: Quentyn is one of the sweetest guys you could ever meet, right up until you hit a Berserk Button. "You shouldn't have made her cry" indeed. Whether you're the leader of a gang of thieves or the ruler of a duchy, do not look down your nose at him. He's fully aware of just how much of a badass he is, and he's not afraid to inform you of the fact in spectacular fashion. Even if he is going to hyperventilate and/or puke from the stress as soon as you're out of sight/earshot.

Also a case of Shown Their Work, as the author points out that many "magical" terms were once scholarly ones: "Wizard" once meant "sage" or "Master", "magician" came from "magi" which meant "Scholar", and "grimoire" is actually "gramarye" AKA "Grammar" or sentence structure.
