* LetThePastBurn: In ''BaldursGateDarkAlliance'' ''II'', a dragon torches Firewind Manor in a bid to kill your character. This coincidently wraps up the sub-plot concerning the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghost of House Felldane]], who wished to see the Manor destroyed to hide the evidence of the depravity his descendants have succumbed to.

'''Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance''' is the SpinOff of the popular ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' franchise. Unlike its namesakes who were classic computer [=RPGs=], ''Dark Alliance'' was an action adventure dungeon crawler game with a heavy focus on combat and co-op gameplay, drawing heavily from the style of the ''VideoGame/{{Gauntlet}}'' games and can feasibly be credited with paving the way for such games as ''VideoGame/ChampionsOfNorrath'' and ''MarvelUltimateAlliance''.

Added DiffLines:

* SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: In the sequel we have an interesting case with Alessia and Vhaidra. The former is probably the most virtuous and righteous of the playable characters, all her suits of armors are concealing and even without armors she wears a caste-looking tabard and shirt. Vhaidra is basically a VillainProtagonist and most of her armors are skimpier, baring her midriff and cleavage.
