* CarnivoreConfusion: Subverted. ''Ironclaw'' and ''Jadeclaw'' took a page from ''UsagiYojimbo'' and introduced an entire ecosystem of lizards, [[DomesticatedDinosaurs dinosaurs]], and lizardy birds which fill the usual niches of livestock, beasts of burden, pets, and wildlife. Pests include both small lizards and oversized insects; WordOfGod has mentioned beetles the size of cats.

* BastardAngst: In the novella ''Scars'' main character Danica is the illegitimate daughter of a grey fox noble. One day she got in a fight with one of her half-brothers and accidentally scratched him, her father reacted by having her declawed (normally done to serious criminals and slaves) and threw her out on the street, where she was found and raised by a BountyHunter. [[spoiler: Dani's father tuns out to have been the recently deceased High King Fidelio d'Rinaldi, and she recognizes the mad "impostor" she was hired to capture as the real Prince Fedrizzio by the scars she gave him when they were kits.]]

* MysteriousAnimalSenses: Each Species in ''{{Ironclaw}}'' has one or two Natural Senses, but no more; when using those senses, they can include their Species Trait in their Observation roll. Some Species have Gifts that improve those sense even further (Keen Eyes, Keen Ears, Keen Nose), or provide exotic sensory abilities like Echolocation.

** Though, "The Rescue of Miranda Devoisier" has a necromancer who lives as a hermit in the middle of a swamp and is actually quite hospitable if the players don't try to kill him, he's getting a little tired of people doing that.

* {{Necromancer}}: Necromancy is one of the forms of magic. It's not actually inherently evil, but it's inherently '''dangerous''' and banned virtually everywhere for its potential to cause death and destruction regardless of the intentions of the user. As such, it's almost exclusively used by evil people, as they're less likely to care about either of those things.
