* ''The Black Hound'' was to be the third game in the series. And with the game allegedly being about 80% done according to a developer on the project before being canceled, one has to wonder what the final product would have been like.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Alorgoth, the ArcVillain of Rasaad's personal quests and Rasaad's ArchEnemy, is technically native to the tabletop version of ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms''; as such, ''Enhanced Edition'' creators [=BeamDog=] needed their permission to use him. They were given it on the condition that [[PlotArmor at no point was he allowed to die]]. The [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge nature of Rasaad's personal storyline]] meshed poorly with this, and not only was Alorgoth [[KarmaHoudini allowed to get off scot-free with no repurcussions for his actions]] and [[NeverFoundTheBody get away from situations]] [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat which should be impossible to escape from]], but actually [[TheBadGuyWins press the advantage and have Rasaad killed]]. What makes this situation even worse is that Alorgoth is an AscendedExtra and a scrub by lore standards, while other ''Forgotten Realms'' personalities who were much more important and heroic than him were allowed to be killed, including [[IdealHero Drizzt do'Urden]]! You could well say that Rasaad's storyline was ScrewedByTheLawyers.
