* LostForever: There are a ton of situations where your companions can die for good or their recruitment and relationships can be derailed. Not to mention the times when you can lose your equipment, [[spoiler:especially the surprising dispel Hyath casts on it near the end, which may effectively make your best weapons, armor and potions useless, unless you left them in a companion's inventory before accepting the Old Man's deal.]]



* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: Sort of, after the splitting of the party in the Underdark. Which romance between Vico or Bran was chosen by the Princess determines which of them will stay for the rest of the journey; the other will leave the party permanently. If she chose Anden, Pia, or no romance at all, both are LostForever as party members. Also, if the Princess romances Vico in the Dwarf settlement, Norah and Bran leave the party because they learned where to find their nemesis at the same time; it is possible to convince them not to leave if Vico left the party after the fight between him and Bran.

** There is a reference to an ancient malevolent being, which is behind the Old Man and Hyath. It is only ever called [[Literature/EarthSea the Nameless One]].

* HellholePrison: The Isle of Prisoners. [[spoiler:Most of the second part of the module is about reaching it and then making making members of the Family escape. When there, we discover that it has been build just above a planar anomaly and that anyone who dies there becomes an undead... Every prisoner is executed when they arrive there and any every inmate is a zombie.]]

* CastFromExperiencePoints: Late in the game, performing a specific, particularly selfless act ([[spoiler:freeing the fallen paladin Luciano from an eternity of enslavement by a powerful demon to give him a chance at redemption]]) costs you one tenth of all of your accumulated XP, potentially bumping you down a level permanently.

* SecretTestOfThievingSkill: Towards the end of part 1, a Dhorn nobleman looking for a capable burglar for a high-profile heist captures the Princess as she is breaking into his castle and locks her up in a dungeon... [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy without confiscating any of her tools]]. So, when the Princess makes her way right out of said dungeon, he waits for her just outside with an offer she can't refuse.

** The astoundingly dysfunctional JerkAss couple Christano and Myra were apparently a homage to a couple the author met in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionBasedMission: Most of the game emphasizes dialogue and character interactions, but in a few places the player is forced into combat, such as during the finale of the Golden Chalice and Baron of Ravenstower quests, the finale of Part I, and the final leg of the story branch leading up to the GoldenEnding.

* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Played with. The password to get into the sewer entrance is "stinkfish." (Coincidentally or not, there's also a tavern ''called'' "The Swordfish", which is located very near the warehouse that houses the sewer entrance.)

* AllMenArePerverts: Almost every male in the game is obsessed with sex in some way or other, and most try to hit on the Princess at some point or other. There are only a handful of exceptions, such as the chaste Ranger Anden.
* AllMenAreRapists: Very, very few men the Princess meets won't try to force or persuade or blackmail her into sleeping with them.

* BittersweetEnding: All of the endings are this ''at best''. In each one of them, despite how far she's come, the Princess's future is very uncertain, she can never return to Betancuria, and she's ''still'' on the run from the Dhorn, most likely for the rest of her life.

* DysfunctionJunction: Vico is a psychopath, who has fallen in love with the player character and is trying to work out how to deal with it, Pia has had most of her friends slain in the Dhorn purge of the Betancuria thieves' guild, Anden has thrown away his home and his life to follow a woman, who he loves yet believes he is unworthy of, Bran and Norah had their entire clan killed and are on a quest to find the killer (and are the most well-adjusted characters in the party, no less), and Rizzen is on the run from his own family after inadvertently witnessing his mother's embarrassment and is a realistically-played runaway drow besides.

* GoingCommando: Technically, underwear is a kind of armor item and character models have been modified to not appear to be wearing underwear (contrary to those of the original ''Neverwinter Nights''), so every character is always naked under their armor.
