FURTHER FAIRY KINGDOM SURVIVAL TIPS
Never annoy anyone more powerful than you. Assume everybody is more powerful than you!
The Kingdom loathes show-offs so good manners, being humble and not causing trouble are all good things to adopt.
Don’t dress up pretending to be a witch, fairy godmother and so on as it will only antagonize the real witches,
fairy godmothers and so on. Fancy dress is something the Kingdom finds strange.
The magical groups prefer people to be what they are and dress accordingly.
Find out who the authorities are and keep your head down. Locally, find out as quickly as possible who runs the village
(someone always does) and live a quiet life. Alternatively make your magical powers so magnificent it is you who runs the village
and nobody argues with you. (Not a long life guaranteer that one as someone always covets power and position.
Study and take in any information from the wonderful Rough Guide to Fantasyland so thoughtfully
provided by the late Diana Wynne Jones. It applies to all fantasy worlds.
Always be wary of old swords, strangely golden rings with funny writing on them and anything that looks
as if it might belong to an evil wizard of long lost king. You don’t want to get involved with any of that nonsense.
It always means certain death for someone. The clever bit is ensuring that someone is not you.
Also if you come across a police box where you wouldn’t expect to find one, give that a wide berth too
unless you want your life turned upside down and threatened on a weekly basis.
