*** Or you can use dark necromancy to summon their spirits to the material world, torturing the information out of them in exchange for their freedom. It actually works quite well.

* TheMentor: Elder Joachim to Virgil. He took the latter in after Virgil found himself in a difficult spot and helped him turn his life around, teaching him the Panarii religion in the process. It's also implied he's who Virgil learned his initial healing spells from.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:The writing in this game deserves credit considering that the completely sane Kerghan is this while also making a genuine OmnicidalManiac. He's decided that because being alive is painful (summoned spirits suffer terribly from being forced back into life as well) and the final afterlife is perfect bliss, the logical solution is to end all life. He reasons that if living is unpleasant and death peaceful, then having to live must be a terrible crime to force upon a soul and one that must be permanently removed. Even Virgil will more or less confirm his opinion, though he isn't about to force it on others. Remarkably if the player can explain the flaws in his philosophy he'll willingly abandon his genocidal agenda and submit to having his soul banished forever. He even shows some slight regret that he never learned how to enjoy life himself: "Perhaps some souls are destined for death; they never know how to live."]]

* JackTheRipper: One quest in Caladon involves discovering the identity of a serial killer that has murdered and eviscerated various prostitutes, a crystal clear reference to the real life Jack. [[spoiler: He is a human man who was possessed by a demon, and the only way to stop the killing spree is to destroy the demon with a specific weapon found in a remote location.]]

* RPGsEqualCombat: Technically it's possible to complete the game without fighting and it isn't even hard, but it requires you to have a very specific character build. The non-combat gameplay parts are still better than those in most [[WesternRPG RPGs]] anyways.

* CompanionSpecificSidequest: Some NPC companions such as Virgil and Magnus are more involved in some plotlines than others and react accordingly if in the party at the time (Virgil believed the PC to be a prophecied hero and is less than thrilled to discover [[spoiler:they've been worshipping the wrong guy all along]], Magnus is a city-born dwarf and desperately tries to hide it via HaveIMentionedIAmADwarfToday and [[spoiler:turns out to be the descendant of a legendary lost dwarf clan]]).

* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Pyrotechnic Axe for any Tech-oriented melee character. It can be crafted once you arrive at Tarant with minimal effort if your character is trained in Smithing (or you recruit Magnus), deals a ton of bonus fire damage and doesn't suffer from weapon degradation when attacking rock monsters (which come up a lot in the game, especially the first major dungeon).
