1359 Actions Economic Scheming
2282 Actions Moral Scheming

Any action that plots or plans to gain a material or social advantage over someone through immoral means. This is separate from economic scheming, which is often directly tied to a commercial situation. It is also not like deception, because the deception has not happened yet. The specific example is Boon "scheming" to take out the car, but there are other instances of characters ratiocinating or plotting to do so. JB

Whenever the narrator of the text refers to "you" as a specific subject or auditor, as is the case with Lucius II referring to Lucius III in the Reivers. This is slightly more nuanced than storytelling, which is generic. Instead this is a narrative crafted with a particular auditor in mind.

2574 Actions Moral Secret

This is the action of keeping a secret or deciding whether or not to keep a secret. It is not necessarily good or bad, rather keeping a secret is a type of moral choice. Since, this is a singular secret and not a protracted secret, as for example Linda Snopes's parentage, this is placed under moral actions and not themes. JB
