  • And the Adventure Continues... – the ending: why run one race when you can run two: day and night?
  • Automaton Horses – hinted in that Berecien and Eltenios are said to race all day long, although we only see a brief glimpse of that; averted in the end where it is shown that by the end of the (first) race, they needed their food, drink and rest.


“But we already are the best, or didn't you notice the world blurring out back there?”
  • The Big Race and Epic Race – the point of the story is that Berecien and Eltenios are doing this (and have been doing it for years) to show that they can be the very best like no one ever was. Besides, it does span crossing the entire landmass of Suocé from east to west, from dawn to dusk, and would likely span at least two timezones.
  • Greek Mythology – Berecien mentions the myth of the horse-led chariot pulling the Sun.
  • Retired Badass – not just yet, but Berecien discusses that he will soon have to become this.
  • Updated Rerelease: the 10th Anniversary Redux edition, which canonized character names and also brings the story up to continuity with the larger Suocéverse.
