* UnusualChapterNumbers: There are a two fractional chapters: Chapters 3½ and 7½. The former is the first chapter to break away from Grignr's POV to check in on Carthena and the cultists, while the latter is a brief flashback to the epileptic shaman's awakening, so at least there's some reason behind it if even if it's not a particular good idea.

* UnusualEuphemism: "Mrifk". In addition, while "slut" is a real word, using it as an insult against men is [[CurseOfTheAncients somewhat antiquated]].
