Unwritten Rules

The Unwritten Rules vignette begins thus:

“In Chapter 10 of Saga of the Six Counties, Charles Francis Xavier Aloisius Mac Magnanimous, III, Esq. recounts how Sir Lawrence of Coldburg promised fealty to a certain Savage, only to betray him. Sir Lawrence later argued that his intentions were noble; however, what a man says he will do and what a man indeed does are often incongruent.”

The reference to the fictitious Sir Lawrence of Coldburg is a critical allusion to the moral theory of American psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg.
