* 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.]]
** Meanwhile in Myranor: {{MagiTech}} (called "Arconmechanics") everywhere!

** Meanwhile in Myranor: {{MagiTech}} In Myranor {{Magitek}} (called "Arconmechanics") everywhere!"Arcanomechanics") is a major part of the setting, and occasional examples make "cameo" appearances in Aventuria (such as a submarine being mistaken for a sea monster).

** 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.

* ThePope: The former priest-emperors of the Middle Realm were basicly the Holy See of the Papal State in a fantasy setting, complete with no tolerance for heretics. The island of Jilaskan, where the priest-emperors' descendants were sent to exile, preserves this.

* {{Expy}}: Pardona is a [[CompositeCharacter Composite Expy]] of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Pandora]] and [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Lolth]]. Her name is an [[SignificantAnagram anagram]] of Pandora, she was also artificially created, and brought woe to her people. Her [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative nature]], and the fact she is the engineer of the creation of Night Elves(Drow Expies), likens her to Lolth. Pandora might be also the same as Calyach'an Mochûla, ''The Mother of Demons'', ''The Black as Night Spider'', is a spider-like entity feared by Gjalskerlanders. This shows further similarities between Lolth(The Demon Queen of Spiders) and Pardona.
