Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

The story starts with a war between the [[TheKingdom Kingdom of Betancuria]] and the [[TheEmpire Dhorn Empire]]. The player character is [[EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses a Betancurian princess]], and in the opening scene, her [[RulingFamilyMassacre family is slaughtered]], her mother [[DrivenToSuicide commits suicide]], [[RapeAsDrama she herself is raped]], and her kingdom is conquered. The [[FallenPrincess now ex-princess]] is "adopted" by a ThievesGuild, and must now learn the tricks of the rogue trade--from [[ClassyCatBurglar picking locks]] to using [[TheVamp her sexuality as a weapon]]--in order to survive. As she works her way up the ranks of the guild and becomes settled in her new life, the Princess soon becomes entangled in a [[MobWar shadow war]] for control over Betancuria's criminal underworld.
