* TakeYourTime: Very, ''very'' averted in ''Exile III''.

to:

* TakeYourTime: TakeYourTime:
** Present but mostly justified in ''Exile I'', in that the biggest known threat, the Slithzerikai, are at a deadlock with the Exile army, so there's no immediate threat. At least until Grah-Hoth is released, at which point you're told to you need to banish him before he can rebuild his army, but there's no time limit to doing so.
** Also used in ''Exile II''. The introductory text tells you that the more you dawdle, the more of Exile the Empire destroys. Despite that, there's no time limit, and you can spend as much time as you want wandering around Exile, doing whatever you wish.
**
Very, ''very'' averted in ''Exile III''.III''. There is a day counter, and the longer you wait around, the more damage the monster plagues ravaging the continent can do, up to and including destroying entire towns. The game is never rendered unwinnable, as key [=NPCs=] will retreat to more fortified towns that will never be destroyed, but it is made much more difficult.

* SoloSequence: A few dungeons in series have sections where only one party member can enter. Usually, these are of the "test of strength/agility/mind" variety.

* ThatOneDisadvantage: Pacifist in ''Exile II''. Such a character cannot attack the enemy in any way whatsoever, and can't even cast most spells that would indirectly lead to an enemy being harmed. Even worse when you realize that, since most experience is gained by killing stuff, your character will lag behind despite the massive experience bonus he gets by taking this disadvantage. Still, some players use it as a challenge.
** Also, Sluggish. It wasn't worth much in XP savings, and a game like this requires perfect rationing of action points to succeed. A character with less-than-stellar action points will easily be left behind when everyone else advances on the enemy, and also left to be ganged up on and eaten alive when everyone else is fleeing. Furthermore, the Haste spells (critical in the late game) only multiply action points; someone who can barely move before Haste can still only move a little better after it.

* SolitarySorceress: Erika Redmark. Because of her anti-social personality and all-consuming desire for revenge on TheEmpire, she lives by herself in a MageTower far to the west, rather than [[WizardingSchool some more centralized location]].

* WizardingSchool: The Tower of the Magi.
