Watt-Evan's Laws of Fantasy
- Watt-Evans' First Law of Fantasy: Stories are about people.
- Watt-Evans' Second Law of Fantasy: People are never wholly good or wholly evil, and therefore characters should never be wholly good or wholly evil.
- Watt-Evans' Third Law of Fantasy: The basic human motivations are universal.
- Watt-Evans' Fourth Law of Fantasy: Everything other than the basic human motivations will vary, depending on the cultural setting.
- Watt-Evans' Fifth Law of Fantasy: Magic, like everything else, has rules.
- Watt-Evans' Sixth Law of Fantasy: If a story can be written without a fantasy element, then don't bother with the fantasy element.
