* Sauruses in ''QuestForGlory 2'' were described as being fearsome and loyal steeds. While yours being an abject coward was part of a plot point, there's no reason why your replacement (the one you get to travel to Raseir on) should balk at combat. [[spoiler:That's why this troper considered it a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when the unofficial remake allowed you to fight on Saurus-back when you got to Raseir]].

* Also in ''QuestForGlory 2'', if you wait around for too many days [[spoiler:after beating the four elementals]], you lose the game, and the game over screen shows [[spoiler:Iblis getting free]]. But hold on a minute! In order to do that, the bad guy has to get you to [[spoiler:open the cave]]. Yet, if you [[spoiler:were lazing around in Shapeir]], you wouldn't have been around for him to do that. So how come it happens?

** You have to keep running messages between the two for a while, and they'll eventually comment they reconcile and Boris goes home at the end of his shift at the gates. I don't recall whether or not there's points for it, but you ''can'' reconcile them.

* Was the Boris subplot an AbortedArc? I mean, there is a huge build up to him leaving his heavily grieving wife and becoming thralled by the vampires. (Though it's implied he willingly abandoned his wife for whatever personal reason) but I beat the entire game as a Paladin and got full score. I never was able to reunite them like I did Anna and Nikolai. (I'm not counting the ending itself, which implies they reunited because that feels like a CopOut)

*** Thank Goodness, because I missed so much context I was rather in the dark, as Katrina was saying "Revive it" and my character does without question. Making me think "WhatTheHellHero? Did you join the villains' side or something?"

Added DiffLines:
** Doesn't explain how Punnybones got there. He outright admitted he was cursed in another town years ago (Mordavia has been cut off for at least a century) and came to Mordavia looking for a cure then left with no explanation as to how he left or if he was just hiding offscreen somewhere.

** Also, I just checked, Ad Avis has no pupils.

** Well, the only other vampires you meet are what, Ad Avis and Katrina, both of whom have been vampires for a long time and are adept mages to boot. It might be they've mastered their vampire powers sufficiently to hide the most obvious signs or they used illusions to do so. Katrina kind of has freaky hair when you wake her up.

* In QFG4 why does Tanya look like a stereotyped Vampire (Bloodshot red eyes, and pale skin), while the other vampires look like perfectly normal humans albeit fangs?

*** Baba Yaga explains the rituals have two purposes. Their main use is summoning an EldritchAbomination. However the incantations listed in the rituals can also be used to banish it, but only a very powerful wizard can achieve that. Your job is merely to collect the rituals and then free a powerful wizard with the skill and willingness to utilize their secondary use.
