* OurElvesAreBetter: Subverted somewhat. The elf councilperson is very enthusiastic and bombastic in defending his typical environmentalist and civil rights agenda, but is merely disappointed when you don't listen to him. He's also not above making some truly mind-boggling decisions (the homophobic elf inquisitor debacle comes to mind), and it is well within your power to [[ScrewYouElves shut him down]].

* OurElvesAreBetter: Subverted somewhat. Subverted. Elven culture is put to the forefront during Lohanna's storyline and shown to often be as repressive and closeminded as the Undead side, just on the other wing: hard left as opposed to hard right. The elf councilperson Oberon is very enthusiastic and bombastic in defending his typical environmentalist and civil rights agenda, but is merely disappointed when you don't listen to him. He's also not above making some truly mind-boggling decisions (the homophobic elf inquisitor debacle comes to mind), and it is well within your power to [[ScrewYouElves shut him down]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Kaiju}}: The Dragon Commander's dragon form is colossal. For reference, the standard troops are as tall as oak trees: compared to the dragon they are pinpricks.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In-game, taking your dragon form requires sacrificing at least twenty people every battle. No mention of made of this anywhere in the story, nor does it have any impact on people's opinion of you.

* BigBad: [[spoiler: Corvus the demon is responsible for every unpleasant event of the protagonist's life.]]

* BigBad: [[spoiler: Corvus the demon is responsible for every unpleasant event of the protagonist's life. Played with in that Corvus himself was defeated and bound prior to the events of the game, and the game itself is spent dealing with the mess his advanced technology and behind-the-scenes influence has made of the kingdom.]]

** The medical unit will sometimes say something along the lines of "[[Series/House Everybody lies]], even those who are dying.

** Interestingly, talking with Catherine about the place reveals that it isn't a {{Utopia}} as one might expect, but is actually more repressive than the rest of Rivellon when it comes to gender politics. To clarify, in the greater Empire, women are treated slightly worse than men, but can easily be high ranking officials or generals with little fuss made of their gender, while in Westbridge, men are essentially slaves based solely on the virtue of their gender.

Catherine ended up out of a throne and in your employ when a huge rebellion by the men ousted her and her sexist regime.



** Their celebratory custom for receiving dignitaries from other races involves the spectacular and colossal combustion of purpose built edifices.



** [[StrawHypocrite Her dialogue also implies that she would be perfectly fine with most of the iniquities in your armed forces if they favored women.]] Doesn't help that she rails against misogyny while espousing highly misandristic opinions.

* {{Jerkass}}: Yorrick, for one. He starts off a pompous fundamentalist windbag and ends a pompous fundamentalist windbag. Catherine, too: even her compliments, should you earn them, all end with a heavy-handed slap about how much she hates men, and at no point does she even ''begin'' to acknowledge her bigotry like Edmund does. Just give her a click during ''your own goddamn wedding day'' and see [[KickTheDog how apologetically low she can be when she wants to.]]

* AssholeVictim: The Elven noble [[spoiler:whom Scarlett kills with extreme prejudice if you allow her]]. As a Witch Hunter, he has the authority to inflict truly horrific deaths on anyone found to be a witch. [[spoiler:This noble has been abusing his position by declaring homosexuals (or suspected homosexuals) to be witches in order to justify their painful execution. While extra-judicial vigilante justice may not be a good thing, the fact of the matter was that he was so highly placed it seemed that he would have gotten off scot-free with his crimes otherwise. Even your Elven Councillor is aware of his deeds but to protect the good name of the elves he is willing to *bribe* you just to turn a blind eye.]]

The game has two primary phases with two genres. The strategy map is where the player determines army movements, building placement, research, and the use of strategic cards in typical TurnBasedStrategy fashion, reminiscent of a ''{{Risk}}'' map. When opposing armies occupy the same territory, the player can let the computer auto-resolve the battle, or opt to take command personally in a RealTimeStrategy engine, with the most notable feature being your ability to [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons turn into a dragon and personally partake in the battles.]]
