** CursedWithAwesome - The Ursidaen are humans cursed with the ability to [[ShapeShifter shapeshift]] into bears. It's not all roses though: the power means that pregnancies often end up as miscarriages, and infanticide due to deformities is a common event.

The game universe is a LowFantasy world drawn in about equal parts from the StandardFantasySetting and CelticMythology. It differs from HighFantasy mostly in its absolute insistence on GreyAndGrayMorality, its by-in-large return to (largely European) folklore tropes over [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings more recent]] [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons fantasy fare]], and its position on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. The human lands, where most of the action takes place, consist of [[http://www.adylheim.com/adylheim kingdoms]] formed from the fragments of a dissolved Empire, which are prevented from all-out war with each other by their equally fragmented internal politics. The wealthy become involved in politics (which usually involves combat) or magic to cement their power, while the common folk live lives of toil and hardship. Even so, it's not a WorldHalfEmpty all together: people help each other, communities scrape through hard times, and fate is capricious, rather than actively out to get you. It's more of a [[AWorldHalfFull World Half Full]].

* CelticMythology - One of the larger influences on the game, including TheFairFolk and TheWildHunt.

** OurWerewolvesAreDifferent - Lycanthropy [[spoiler: is an ''STD'']]. Instead of a person turning into a wolf at regular intervals, the infected person's personality and behavior becomes gradually more wolfish, until the disease has run its course and a [[BigBadassWolf Fell Wolf]] rips its way out of the body, leaving behind a pile of human skin.

*** OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame - ''Incredibly'' subverted. At first it seems that there aren't any Dwarves in Adylheim at all - but with enough [[IncrediblyLamePun digging]] it becomes clear that the role of the standard fantasy dwarves is held by the Mefici - non-playable, mysterious crystalline entities that mine crystal in return for undisclosed services from the Dee'Gar.

*** PeopleOfHairColor - [[http://www.adylheim.com/humans Humans]]. This is averted with the Maradin (seafaring dark-skinned people) and Soiliens (Asians), but played straight with the Arameians ([[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Numenoreans]]) and the Threakians (Scandinavians).

* DemBones- What zombies eventually turn into. They still have personalities and wills, but they can't talk.



* NewerThanTheyThink - Many players knew each other for years before the creation of the game, and had plenty of time to improve their writing skills as well.



** {{Skeletons}} - What zombies eventually turn into. They still have personalities and wills, but they can't talk.
