Added DiffLines:

* CameBackStrong: The blessing of the All Father kills and then resurrects you with a massive stat boost. If you're a technologist, however, make sure one of your party members has a tech-based revive item, because the All Father's magic resurrection will be blocked.


Added DiffLines:

* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: You lose if your character dies, though the game will allow your party members to attempt a resurrection if one or more of them have that ability. Just try not to get caught in a situation where your tech or magic resistance renders you immune to the type of resurrection they have.

** Also, the first NPC character that can join your party and act as your early guide to the world of Arcanum is a man called [[DivineComedy Virgil]]. Possibly doubles as a nice ShoutOut.

*** 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.
