* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The idea of [[spoiler:Durkon turning into a vampire]] came up early to Rich Burlew, when the comic was still a gag strip with no continuity, to make a {{Pun}} on "TurnUndead". Then the author decided he wanted a more continuous storyline, and the concept evolved into [[spoiler:a lengthy story arc which saw Durkon killed and raised as the High Priest of Hel]].

Bechdel test is not a trope. Its usage should be reserved for when the test, or something very much like it, is directly referenced.
* UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest: Passes the test easily, thanks mostly to Haley and Celia. Passes first in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0243.html comic #243]]. Assuming [[AmbiguousSex Vaarsuvius]] is female, it does so in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0003.html comic #3]]

This format is discouraged, as the casual reader shouldn't be burdened with jargon.
* ExactWords: Rich Burlew is known to sometimes indulge in this in the forums as not to spoil some yet unrevealed twist in the story. For example, when pressed about what god [[spoiler:Vampire!Durkon would worship after his death]], Rich pointed out that non-theistic clerics can exist in ''D&D'', and that it was likely for a cleric turned vampire to become one. [[spoiler:But he never specifically said that ''Durkon'' was such.]]

* ContestWinnerCameo: The top reward for the Kickstarter drive was a walk-on cameo, eventually fulfilled with [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0986.html Veldrina the elven priestess]] (who Rich Burlew decided to give a larger role than originally planned). In typical style, Rich [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0987.html pokes some fun at himself]] for how long it took to get there.

* InMemoriam: Veldrina's bodyguard Wrecan is a tribute to a late member of the comic's forum.

* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: The characters Veldrina and Wrecan. In the Kickstarter campaign, one of the prizes for large backers would be to have their character have a walk-on cameo for a single page, though the character fit perfectly for a then-upcoming arc in the story, so Rich opted to keep the character for longer. Wrecan is included on a more somber note. He was a prolific poster before suffering from heart failure. His wife said he would have loved to have been included in the comic, so Rich included him.
