Added DiffLines:

* FantasyCounterpartReligion:
** The Church of Morrow is this setting [[CrystalDragonJesus analogue for Christianity]].
** The Thamarite cults are a weird blend of theistic and [=LaVeyan=] Satanism, with a vaguely-Objectivist moral philosophy, emphasis on magic, and worship of the Morrowans' Satan equivalent (and Morrow's twin sister).
** The Menites are more of an InterfaithSmoothie; they worship the creator of humanity, Menoth, exclusively, and are the religion that Morrowans grew out of, making their religion an obvious counterpart to Judaism (complete with being a persecuted minority in strongly-Morrowan Cygnar). They also have elements of the more sinister side of Catholicism (their Scrutator priest-judges are heavily inspired by the Inquisition, and they really like burning heretics), and in the Protectorate, they have elements of Islam (they even recently converted the Idrians, the setting's resident [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Arab equivalents]]) and possibly Mormonism (forming a new nation in the desert after the rise of a new prophet and violent conflict with America-equivalent Cygnar).

* AllCrimesAreEqual: The urban RPG supplement has a list of fourteen crimes; the Protectorate of Menoth judiciary can sentence you to death by burning for no less than eleven of them, including "improper speech".


Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: In the RPG, Menoth's legal system is incredibly brutal. Public drunkenness? Torture! Petty theft? Wracking! No less than ''eleven'' crimes on a list of fourteen have death by burning as a possible punishment, including burglary, smuggling, tax evasion, counterfeiting, and ''improper speech''.

* ''Llael'', a [[TheKingdom small but rich nation]] whose alchemists hold the monopoly on blasting powder, situated between Khador and Cygnar. With little else in the way of mineral wealth or military might, a woefully inefficient government, and no actual ruler, it came as no surprise to anyone when Khador took it over.

* MiniMecha: Most non-Colossal steamjacks are humanoid walkers that range from two to four metres tall.



* OurDragonsAreDifferent: At the EldritchAbomination level; a dragon's true form is just a sentient crystal called an athanc, but this crystal possesses nigh-RealityWarper powers. And they're freaking huge.

* ElvesVsDwarves: Fairly common amongst the various factions, most explicitly between the steampunk-inspired WARMACHINE factions and the Primal Powers of HORDES. Amusingly enough, averted by the setting's ''actual'' elves and dwarves: the elves hate humans, while the dwarves don't feel particularly strongly one way or the other.

** Original Colossals that the Human kingdoms built to overthrow the Orgoth became so after the war. As the high cost of building and maintenance led to them being replaced by smaller, cheaper, and more numerous warjacks.

* {{Determinator}}: Asheth Magnus. See TheUnfettered, below. Karchev the Terrible is another prime example of this. After losing his arms and legs in a disastrous military operation, he still ''demanded'' to be put back on the front lines to put his warcaster talent to use for Khador. He proved this at the final hearing to decide whether he should return to active duty - to convince the board that he could still fight, he directed a Juggernaut warjack to charge into the room, race towards the large, marble table the officials were sitting at and cleave it in two with the 'jack's axe. [[BadAss Then basically asking them if they still thought he couldn't serve his country.]]

* BadAss: Pretty much every named character. Even some of the {{Mooks}} are portrayed this way in the fluff.
