* GorgeousPeriodDress: Based off VictorianBritain. Not exactly accurate, but all the guys look dapper, and the girls are usually fantastically well-dressed.

* StreetUrchin: Lionela is a very rare ''female'' example of this trope. She starts the game out as a homeless street performer with only the (relatively ragged) clothes on her back and her puppets for company. [[spoiler: She may or may not also be quite desperately insane as the game opens, as the puppets seem to be fully animated and speak to her and other people, Lionela treats them as separate conscious entities and you might think they are magical or something... and then you realize they don't move or speak when she isn't around.]] It's all a little whitewashed compared to the real [[VictorianBritain Victorian]] examples, but it's still there prominently. The player can, of course, decide how much they wish to interact with Lionela and help her out of her situation.

* VictorianBritain: Obviously not actually Britain, but the architecture, technology and costume design clearly riff off 19th-century British culture. The music also takes a ton of Celtic cues, and Ken Nakagawa even used several legitimate Celtic instruments in composing the music.
** Notable in that this is a first for an Atelier title; most of Rorona's predecessors could be best described, perhaps, as "[[TheRenaissance Renaissance]] [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy European Fantasy]]".
** Strangely enough, [[GratuitousGerman some of the names are (Pseudo-)German, though]] (the most noticeable being Cordelia ''von Feuerbach''). There are even some items with German names, like "Zettel" and "Eiche".

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: Or in this case, a CallForward. In Atelier Rorona Plus, a cutscene with Cordelia reveals just how the Adventurer's Guild from VideoGame/AtelierTotori was conceptualized [[spoiler: Rorona gave the idea to Cordelia]] and even indirectly mentions [[spoiler: Gisela Helmold, Totori and Ceci's mother,]] the troublemaking adventurer from the same game, even if that adventurer wasn't name-dropped.


Added DiffLines:

* NewGamePlus: Atelier Rorona Plus (New Atelier Rorona in JP) features new dungeons, items, skills, and new scenarios that weren't featured in the original game, the biggest of these scenarios being [[spoiler: Totori and Meruru time travelling to the present from the third game and meeting present Rorona to ask for her help in going back]] and Esty getting an ending of her own. Oh, and both Esty and Astrid are playable now!

The game has two sequels, which (together with this game) comprise the "Arland Trilogy": ''VideoGame/AtelierTotoriTheAdventurerOfArland'', and ''VideoGame/AtelierMeruruTheApprenticeOfArland''. A remake titled ''New Atelier Rorona'' (''Atelier Rorona Plus'' overseas) for UsefulNotes/PlaystationVita and the [=PS3=] features completely redone graphics and game system, new costumes for Rorona, and post-game content.

* YouLoseAtZeroTrust: After Lionela first arrives in town, if you don't immediately get her friendship level high enough she will move on to another town and [[LostForever never return to Arland]].

''VideoGame/{{Atelier Rorona|The Alchemist of Arland}}'' is the eleventh (or the sixteenth, depending on how you number them) game in Gust's well-known ''AtelierSeries'' and the first of the lot to sport 3D graphics. Like many Atelier games, it can be described as one-part {{JRPG}}, one-part TimeManagementGame and three-parts ItemCrafting with a dollop of {{Moe}} for flavour.

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: The character models are a bit... off in the first version of the game. They look significantly better in ''Plus'' and the 3DS remake.

* ContinuityCameo: Pamela, a recurring character in the Atelier series, is in this game too.



* MayDecemberRomance: Depending on whether you go for his route, as Gio is 46 years old, as compared to Rorona who is 17 (14 in the original JP version). Similarly, Cordelia is also interested in him.



** Many of her pies are... not what would normally be considered food. One of them contains [[spoiler: The Philosopher's Stone.]]
