* The Corruption: Played straight but in the unusual way that the forces of evil are corrupted by something more or less good. As the Netherhells stand for pure chaos, even the existance of the Archdemons and their domains show some kind of order and organization in at least those parts of the Netherhells wich are close to the universe, wich is ruled by the gods and stands for Order. This effect most likely comes from Sakaraya, the Energy of ecerything that is, wich is slowly draining into the Netherhells.

* YouShallNotPass: The aventurian pantheon actually has a ''patron saint'' of this trope: Saint Thalionmel, the Lioness of Neetha. A priestess of the goddess of valor, she defended a bridge against an invading army that had so far smashed straight through any attempt to even slow them down. When she was finally overwhelmed, a sudden flash flood (believed to be a divine miracle) swept away the bridge, the invading army and her remains.

* AndIMustScream: The final fate of Borbarad. Thanks in part to his own machinations, he ends up stuck in an isolated pocket universe ''exactly'' the size of his body until the end of the universe. And since he is immortal, he'll be fully conscious for the duration...


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[BigBad Borbarad]], stuck in an endless cycle of death and rebirth with his twin brother [[BigGood Rohal]] eventually manages to cheat and permanently kill his counterpart...which makes his own final defeat possible. Without his act of fratricide, the defeat he suffered at the end of his final grab for power would have been just another temporary setback.

*** That particular fact applies only to the High Elves, though, which are extinct. Their modern-day successors at the time the setting takes place (divided into three sub-species) all reject the belief in gods, draconic or not, and consider the idea of deities dangerous, for precisely the reason that it was this belief, combined with hubris, that caused their ancestors' downfall.

* MagiTek: Not present anymore (except for one of the Heptarchies), but a strong element in the culture of the now-extinct High Elves (direct progenitors of all modern elves but the Wood Elves, to whom they are "merely" close relatives) a few millenia back. Everlights, magical elevators in their spire-like skyscrapers, the occasional airship or two - the usual works. The modern elves are technologically backward even compared to humans by ''choice'', as they believe that it was this lifestyle coupled with the hubris of the High Elf leaders, a few of whom tried to elevate themselves to godhood, that led to the culture's downfall. [[spoiler: They're partly right, partly wrong: the true cause was [[DarkMessiah Pardona]], a High Elf artifically created by Pyrdacor and immediately corrupted by the Nameless God, who manipulated her way into the ranks of the leaders, then betrayed her species and almost single-handedly caused their extinction. However, this manipulation was only made possible by the High Elf hubris.]]

** The Myranor sub-setting as it does have verry primitive firearms and even offers rules for inventing upgrades suck as the matchlock or multiple barrels. Although, this is explicitly stated as an optional rule in the Sourcebook.
