Threat and horror

There are scenes of threat in which evil spells are cast and the landscape adapts to the at times frightening atmosphere. Some characters face the threat of extinction and there are references to peasants being killed on the moors.

Violence

There are scenes of fantasy violence in which fantastical characters are shot with crossbows during battle, and in one instance stabbed with a small blade. There are scenes in which characters are zapped with energy blasts. Injuries are seen to heal quickly.

There is some mild bloody injury detail in the aftermath of falls and violence.
