Also currently undergoing BetaTesting for its Second Edition.



*** The book Mortal Remains has some interesting information, but the opportunity it opens up is so minute as to be nonexistent. [[spoiler:The two hive ships hold the ENTIRETY of the Migou in our solar system. Pluto, their mining colony, is going to have a skeleton crew once the second ship launches. Some may question the rationality of leaving Pluto defenseless, but according to Migou intel, there are no threats to it since nobody is capable of getting there (And the Earth is locked down by the first Hive ship)]].

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Would you prefer the paranoid PoliceState of the NEG? The amoral Eldritch Society? The genocidal Migou? Or would you like to go all out and join the EldritchAbomination cults?

* EvolutionPowerUp: The Tagers can go through ''metamorphosis'', gaining an even more powerful form, possibly as an analogue to the Manga/{{Guyver}} Gigantic. Phantoms evolve into Wraiths, which can totally control their own interia, rendering themselves [[TheJuggernaut unmovable and unstoppable]]. Whispers evolve into Dreams, who can see thoughts, dreams and emotions. Shadows evolve into Phantasms, who can perfectly mimic any appearance or sound. Echoes evolve into Impulses, gaining the ability to teleport. Mirages evolve into Memories, who [[ParanoiaFuel are instantly forgotten about the moment they can no longer be seen]]. Spectres evolve into Revenants, gaining such a potent HealingFactor they can no longer feel pain and can revive from any wound. Widows evolve into [[MeaningfulName Horrors]], who are immune to fear and can inspire tear and madness with a look. Nightmares evolve into [[MeaningfulName Torments]], who can cause unbearable agony with just a touch. Vampires evolve into Bloodgods, who can [[BodyHorror reshape flesh, blood and bone at will]]. Finally, Efreeti evolve into [[MeaningfulName Infernos]], which are master pyrokinetics.

* LighterAndSofter: Well relatively in comparison to most other CosmicHorrorStory works. In this setting humanity has a HopeShot and at the very least we'll go down swinging and taking a few things with us so others won't have to deal with them.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Hastur. Sure, the Rapine Storm does all of his dirty work, but if a Great Old One--even a weakened one--actually entered the MeleeATrois himself, it would be over very quickly. It's implied that he's actually ''unable'' to leave his domain on the Plateau of Leng, but he's an EldritchAbomination, so it's hard to say for certain.

* [[PetTheDog Pet the Blank]]: Migou turn humans into 'blank' slaves by invasive brainwashing...on the other hand, blanks retain their memory and identity, are allowed to have a vaguely normal life, and are treated very well by their masters.

* PowerIncontinence: When para-psychics overexert themselves, they can enter a state called Burning, wherein they can still use their powers...with the catch that their powers don't turn ''off'' for quite a while. Zoners are in a ''permanent state'' of Burning, so you can probably figure out why they're considered a public menace.

** Considering that they ''do'' themselves employ parapsychics to [[PayEvilUntoEvil counter hostile parapsychics]] and that they have an extensive R&D division running...experiments on their more interesting detainees, the OIS crosses over from StateSec into a kind of [[{{Ghostapo}} Ghostapo]] at a few points.

* AbsoluteXenophobe: The Migou are completely and utterly locked into their mindset of "kill all Nazzadi, enslave or kill every human on the planet, and keep the Old Ones in their can." No Migou will ever consider any kind of negotiation or working with humanity that doesn't involve turning humans into blanks or killing every Nazzadi on the planet.

** The core book notes that The Great Race of Yith issued warnings to Humanity, claiming that the future is not entirely yet set. It's vague, but at least that mean the Aeon War isn't hopeless one.
