* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler: On going over all the changes to the game since the earlier build the story takes place in, especially adding NPC permadeath instead of respawning, the reviewer in the epilogue wonders what the developers have against [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]].]]

* RunningBothSides: [[spoiler: Although most of the adventurers themselves are unaware of this, the vast majority of the monsters and quest villains work for the Adventurer's guild, making the entire adventuring industry a massive scam.]]

* DeathIsCheap: And how cheap it is! Anyone who dies, for any reason, finds themselves instantly brought back to life at the nearest church, where they are provided with a bathrobe and must run back to their corpse to get back whatever items they were wearing. Incidentally, this has the side effect of various churches vying with each other for the best (read: most deadly) locations.

Incidentally, this has the side effect of various churches vying with each other for the best (read: most deadly) locations. It's also led to some horrifying new vices (one of the more mild ones is intentionally taking a fatal overdose of your drug of choice for example), and suicide addiction is starting to be a problem in the cities.

* PaperThinDisquise: The King of Lolede has heard of the idea of kings going around in disguise, but clearly doesn't quite get the concept. He just throws a hooded robe over his normal regalia, without changing his voice at all or removing his symbols of office.

* ObviousRulePatch: The targets of a Bunny spell are invulnerable. According to Jim this is because otherwise they would be instantly killed by the caster and nobody would ever buy any other spells.
