* ChestMonster: Called an "Aydaptor", one nearly devours Arcie. Later it's domesticated with a spell into a pet by the adventuring party following them, to its horror.



* EvilGloating: Subverted, [[spoiler: when Blackmail finally gets around to talking; he keeps fighting all the way through his monologue.]]

* EvilGloating: Subverted, {{Subverted}} [[spoiler: when Blackmail finally gets around to talking; he keeps fighting all the way through his monologue.]]



* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints about Blackmail [[spoiler: being Sir Pryce]] and Sam [[spoiler: being Mizzamir's son]]. Blackmail is from Kwartz, [[spoiler: Sir Pryce's country]], and defeated when a paladin whom he's fighting prays [[spoiler: to Sir Pryce]] for aid. Robin, while looking at a painting depicting the youthful Mizzamir and thinks his features then looks oddly familiar. [[spoiler: Because he resembles Sam.]]



* GoodIsNotNice: There's Mizzamir, [[spoiler: who let's face it, is pretending to be a hero, even if he won't admit it to himself.]] There's several other "good" characters who indulge in less savory practices. Among the members of a "good" adventuring party were a woman who quite clearly wouldn't have taken "no" for an answer from Sam, while Fenwick tried to date-rape Kaylana, having dosed her drink with aphrodisiacs.

* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Sir Pryce's brother was turned by Mizzamir into a warhorse. This was "merciful" compared with being brainwashed.



* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Kaylana turns into a horse at one point as a disguise. Fenwick, thinking she's a real horse, tries to ride off on her. She bucks him off.

* StupidNeutral: The druids. First in the backstory they switched sides once the [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil balance tipped in favor of the Light]]. Naturally the forces of Light killed them as traitors. The Dark meanwhile viewed them as spies for having so recently fought on the side of Light, and killed them as well. Kaylana, the last druid, learned nothing after this, telling her "dark" comrades that she'd turn on them in an instance if they started winning. What a way to inspire trust...

* HeroicSuicide: The Dark Gate requires a death to open it. [[spoiler: Sir Pryse]] thus kills himself by jumping in, saving the world from destruction. * HeroesWantRedheads: Kaylana, since she's got both Sam and Fenwick trying to get her attention.
