I think that's why I like it-- it's a complete send up of all the
cardboard cutout stuff written by people like Terry Brooks. When people
act badly in pursuit of their in-game ends, they are made to experience
the same difficulties.  And [spoiler]

It turns out that while there are people who can help the embattled 
victims, they won't do it until said victims are willing to do something 
for themselves.
