** At one point, the opening sequence of T'Rain is described as being ripped off from the opening sequence of GoogleEarth, which is in turn (accurately) described as being ripped off from some old science fiction novel. The novel in question is one of Stephenson's earlier books, ''SnowCrash''.

* WhiteGuyGetsTheGirl: The three female characters (one African and two Asians) in the book are strong and capable so they don't quite fit the "mellow" part of the {{Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow}} trope but in the end [[spoiler:they all end up with white guys]]. For the two Asian women, they feel an immediate, compelling attraction to a white guy within moments of meeting under crazy, extreme circumstances.
* WordSaladTitle: Like several of Stephenson's previous novels, the title is a made-up word found within the story. It's apparently supposed to be "README" with the letters transposed, either as a result of a typo or a lack of writing proficiency. Stephenson pronunces the titles as "REAM-duh"

** To be fair, though, that also tended to indicate whether you paid some level of attention to the lore and role-playing[[note]]which was repeatedly shown to be a strong consideration of (most of) the designers, so even converting in-game money to real and vice versa required a ritual to invoke the gods[[/note]] (Earthtone Coalition) or were a more casual player (Forces of Brightness).

** [[WordOfGod Stephenson himself]] has said that it could have been two books, but [[ExecutiveMeddling the publisher has decided]] that his books should be of a certain length to maximize profit.
