Change of Plans

Beast Fables - Comic 77 - Pertelote and Thorn realize that Rey doesn't have the magic ring she needs.

Medieval Moment: Magical items might seem like a narrative cop-out, and sure they are, but they’re also a surprisingly old tradition going back to well before that famous trilogy + movie with the elves. In Sir Eglamour of Artois, we have a ring that grants the wearer invincibility. In Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, it’s a girdle (read: belt), but the magic is all the same. Magic is a useful way to cover up plot holes and I’d hate to be the one to break tradition.
