* TheFourGods: There's four original creators, the [[OurGodsAreGreater Primordials]]. They don't exactly correspond to the Chinese Four Gods but they're similar in some respects, for instance each being associated with one of the seasons.

* TheDarkSide: Sorcery (that is, evil magic) works like this.

* TheDarkSide: Sorcery (that is, evil magic) works like this. Either using arcana that are inherently evil [[note]]Flesh Shaping, for example - even if used for a morally good purpose, it's still a sin against the natural order[[/note]] or using ''any'' arcana for an evil purpose causes the user to suffer physical and spiritual [[TheCorruption corruption]].

* DontFearTheReaper: The Twilight goddess of winter, Selene, also happens to be the goddess of death and, although not exactly friendly, she's portrayed as wise and merciful. She especifically crafted the Wheel Of Reincarnation so that even though it is possible for the creatures of Aldea to die, their souls will be reborn in a new form instead of being claimed by the Shadow.

* MadGod: While looking for an edge over the other three primordials Anwaren, god of autumn, bit more than he could chew when he was {{mind rape}}d and driven quite mad by [[DarkIsEvil the Shadow]] which resulted in the creation of [[SevenDeadlySins the Seven Exarchs]]. He was eventually saved by [[ActionGirl Aulora]] and [[TheSmartGuy Goia]] (the goddesses of justice and prudence, respectively) and nursed back to health. Because of this he is often sought for guidance when someone go crazy.

* NoTranshumanismAllowed: Flesh-Shaping, which the Sorcerer-Kings used for genetic engineering is sorcery. The book mentions that it can be used for good purposes, but it's still inherently a sin against nature and causes TheCorruption in its users.

** There's also the vata'sha, which are more like half-[[ForgottenRealms Drow]] or [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Night Elves]], having been the result of genetic experiments to create nocturnal vata'an. They're less accepted than their diurnal cousins.
* OurOrcsAreDifferent: The Night People are actually a ServantRace genetically engineered by [[EvilSorcerer mad sorcerer-kings]] centuries ago. They're not actually AlwaysChaoticEvil, but being used as [[{{Mook}} Mooks]] by a long series of [[DarkLord Dark Lords]] tends to give people that impression.

** In regards to Jarzon, the game appears to take its cues from one of its inspirations, Mercedes Lackey's ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, where Valdemar's rival country Karse is portrayed with sympathetic aspects (in Karse's case, its problems came from a CorruptChurch).



* SevenDeadlySins: The result of the autumn god's {{mind rape}} and the first evil beings into existence, the [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Exarchs of]] [[DarkIsEvil Shadow]] fully [[EmbodimentOfVice embody a deadly sin]] each: Gravicarius (pride), Tyrexxus (wrath), Ulasta (envy), In'nassi (lust), Viasta (sloth), Yungo (gluttony) and Mytaxx (greed).

* TopGod: Interestingly the position is filled not by one, but by ''[[TheOldGods four]]'' gods who share the responsability of running the world and this represented by the passing of the four seasons. MadGod Anwaren's desire to be THE Top God actually led to the creation of the Exarchs of Shadow, i.e. the creation of evil in the world, reinforcing the idea that tyranny is bad.

* RedemptionEarnsLife: In this setting, mercy towards one's enemies is a Good Thing, except for creatures that are [[AlwaysChaoticEvil irredeemably part of the Shadow]] (and even then, a case can be made for trying). Aldis has no death penalty, and the book instructs players not to kill when redemption is an option.
