----
!!Tropes
* ActionGirl: Teres in ''Bloodstone''.
* AssholeVictim: Ionor in ''Raven's Eyrie'' (in an attempt to mitigate a MoralEventHorizon by Kane).
* AntiHero: Kane and some of his companions.
* BlackAndGrayMorality.
* CainAndAbel: Kane is based on Cain from TheBible. Kane was one of the first humans, created by a mad god. Kane was cursed for disobeying the god and killing his brother Abel.
* TheChick: M'Cori in ''Darkness Weaves''.
* CursedWithAwesome: Kane is "cursed" with immortality and the ability to heal all wounds. Fortunately, he rarely angsts. He mostly just kicks butt.
* EldritchAbomination: The Scylredi in ''Darkness Weaves'', the titular ''Bloodstone'' and others.
* EvilVersusEvil: Kane is often pitted against villains even worse than him.
* GodIsDead: According to Kane in ''At First Just Ghostly'': "There was a god. I killed him."
* KillEmAll: In some stories, almost all named characters die and only Kane survives.
* KnightTemplar: Gaethaa from ''Cold Light''.
* LeftForDead: [[spoiler:Lages]] in ''Darkness Weaves''.
* LostTechnology: The Scylredi technology in ''Darkness Weaves''.
* {{Made of Iron}}: Kane can take immense amounts of punishment and still fight on.
* MagicFromTechnology: It is suggested that all magic is like this.
* {{Precursors}}: The Scylredi, Krelran and other unnamed "elder races" in ''Darkness Weaves'' and ''Bloodstone''.
* PropheciesAreAlwaysRight: Subverted in ''Darkness Weaves'': [[spoiler:Roget, Lages and M'Cori each have their fortunes told. Roget's prophecy comes true, but the other two do not.]]
* {{Religion of Evil}}: The cult of Sataki in ''DarkCrusade''.
* {{Squick}}: Kane having sex with Efrel in ''Darkness Weaves''.
* VillainProtagonist: Kane.
* TheUntwist: In ''DarkCrusade'', the evil god's dark prophet has amassed an army of fanatics. They march to face a vastly superior force of well-armed, well-trained knights and soldiers. The knights are naturally confident that they will easily defeat this rabble. [[spoiler:The reader holds his breath in anticipation of some dark magic that will turn the tide for the fanatics, but it never materializes, and the dark prophet's horde gets stomped.]]
