* ArmorIsUseless: In that it's usually just factored into your Skill score, and getting better armor or a shield will give you a small increase and nothing else. Some books tried to be a little more ambitious, like ''Legend of the Shadow Warriors,'' or ''Knights of Doom'' where wearing a helmet at one point makes the consequences of a blow to the head a lot less severe.

Some books tried to be a little more ambitious, like ''Legend of the Shadow Warriors,'' Warriors'' which has them blocking damage but some of the heavier sets lowering your skill and being destroyed after a certain amount of damage, or ''Knights of Doom'' where wearing a helmet at one point makes the consequences of a blow to the head a lot less severe.

Wizard Books revived it in 2002, republishing some of the original books with new covers (and later some new adventures, including the infamous "lost" book ''Bloodbones'' which had been intended for release as part of the Puffin range). Following a brief tail-off, they relaunched their relaunch in 2009 with another range of new covers and more new adventures. The last new print adventure was released in 2012 to mark the 30th anniversary, although electronic versions of some of the books are currently being released by Tin Man Games for Steam, iOS and Android - many of these are expanded versions of the original books with new features.

* SlidingScaleOfLinearityVsOpenness: Many of the books are level 1 or 2; Ian Livingstone is infamously known for this. The most ambitious books - especially Jonathan Green's three all-new books for the Wizard series[[note]]''Howl of the Werewolf'', ''Stormslayer'' and ''Night of the Necromancer''[[/note]] - manage to reach level 4 or 5, usually by keeping track of events with codeword systems.

''Robot Commando'' is still the reigning champion with not only giving you absolute freedom of movement but even a way to achieve a fully victorious ending without fighting the BigBad.
