Added DiffLines:

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: {{Discussed}}. The reason Lord Nasher knights you in Act II is [[LoopholeAbuse abuse a loophole]] in his treaty with Luskan so that your trial will take place in Neverwinter and your death if convicted will be quick and clean. Sand notes if you're convicted under Low Justice as a commoner and extradited, it won't just be a single swing of a headman's axe. (This doubles as a ContinuityNod to part four of ''Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt'': In Luskan, horrific public executions like [[AnArmAndALeg having your limbs tied to horses and torn off]] are ''entertainment''.)

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:The gnome sisters, Mirri and Jilla. They were infected with lycanthropy by a werewolf. They exiled themselves in a cave to avoid hurting anyone. They hunt forest animals for food or eat their insect collection when they can't find anything to eat. However, when someone enter their lair, the scent of flesh drives them crazy and they can no longer control their murderous hunger.]]

* DeconstructiveParody / StealthParody: Possibly. A fair portion of the wider NWN/Obsidian fanbase wonders if that's what this campaign really is, since it mocks certain types of characters (the ridiculously over the top nature-loving elf as a start, along with arrogant wizards/sorcerers, a dwarf who love drinking and fighting, a generic ForGreatJustice-type paladin etc), horribly designed areas in fan-made mods from the first game (the Orc Caves), and [[ShaggyDogStory long and at first seemingly compelling sections of gameplay that end up not mattering]] [[spoiler:(like your trial)]], and the script has a propensity to veer into the openly snarky at times (such as the page-quote). The whole thing ends up having a bit of a ForgottenRealms-ala-LightNovel/{{Slayers}} feel to it. It may also have just been a fairly by the numbers production, but knowing some of the people involved and what the expansion ended up being...

Added DiffLines:

* FieryRedhead: Qara. In Mask of the Betrayer, the PC can describe her as "an impulsive red-headed mage girl with an anger management problem". She's also a sorcerer specialising in fire, so is a rather more literal example of the trope than most.

** Another fine example of ArtificialStupidity is the tendency for your own party members to attack Elanee the druid while she's transformed into her animal form, after they've run out of other enemies to attack. Resting won't stop this, since your party members are still in combat, which prevents Rest from working.

*** Also, kobolds hate gnomes. This leads to a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny moment]] when Deekin sings a song about butchering gnomes and Grobnar [[ComicallyMissingThePoint misses the point completely]].
