* AllPowerfulBystander: [[spoiler: The Mysterious Hermit mostly just tells you where to go to improve your ranking in the Book of Mages. He's actually one of the Six who created the Book of Mages, and is over twice as powerful as the next strongest mage (not counting the PC). Nonetheless, he has no ranking in the Book of Mages, nor any interest in the struggles of the Robes.]]

* AnyoneCanDie: To an extent; the protagonist has heavy-duty PlotArmor and won't die even if you're actively ''trying'' to get him killed, but pretty much everyone else is fair game. The only non-PC characters who don't die in at least one plotline are [[spoiler:Shiverhorror, Silverkin, Burnstorm, Darklove, and Wetanger. The first four are among the top ten mages in the world and are smart enough to stay out of the warring Robe factions; Wetanger (who you can kill if you are a Black Robe) just gets lucky. If you join the White Robes and don't succeed in getting a cure for the poison you can kill more than half of the named population of the world in the (pre)final battle.]]

A nobody-dies run is impossible.

* HopelessBossFight: You're not supposed to beat the assassin who comes for you shortly before the Young Mage Competition. If you somehow pull it off (usually by cheating), [[TheBattleDidntCount he'll call for more assassins, who will beat you down without a fight]]. Don't worry, you're not dead afterward.
