* LovecraftCountry: Aurora tends to be this, what with ancient temples, a sense of absolute lifelessness, the small sparsely populated town that [[TownWithADarkSecret knows whats out there]], and [[StealthPun crawling]] with {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.
** Something to note is the scale and mystery of the location. The tone is set perfectly with the music and artwork telling one that they are no longer in the same world you were before, and while the locations are rather small and cramped it is eerily and justifiably empty. In one of the regions dungeons there is also a window which shows the true scale of the land, a massive plain that extends out forever with nothing but huge towers of stone extending from the terrain, begging the question of just what else besides the previous stated Eldritch Abominations were hiding beneath the sands. The place is also awash with strange and mind boggling set pieces despite being so barren; one such piece being a massive door in a canyon which leads nowhere and is [[LeftHanging never explained]].


Added DiffLines:

* ShiftingSandLand: The desert continent of Aurora, which is actually called the Shifting Sands, made up of jagged rocky peaks, wide open flatlands, and valleys of rolling dunes.

** Some of the heroic weapons power up from doing very cruel things, like killing spouses. Yes, you have to get married multiple times ''just to kill the person.''

* PoorCommunicationKills: Half of the plot revolves around this. [[spoiler: After returning from Aurora with an entire army missing, Logan could have confided in his private council (Walter, The Hero, et al) the actual events that elapsed there. Despite what Theresa says about, "The Crawler is something you had to see for yourself", in a world where monsters roam the land and cosmic abominations from The Void are renown throughout history it would not have been hard to persuade his closest friends to trust him and help enable intelligent policy revisions to prepare for invasion.]]
** [[spoiler: Let's not forget about the families of Logan's legion of dead soldiers who make no effort to inquire as to what happened exactly.]]
** The entire reason is that Theresa ''warned'' him that if he ''told'' anyone, it would attract the attention of [[spoiler: The Crawler]] and it would attack sooner than desired.

* PaperThinDisguise: There's a particular quest where the player must dress up as a mercenary, and pose as their comrade "Jimmy" in order to sneak into their camp. It makes sense, sort of, if the PC is male, but if female, somehow the mercenaries remain oblivious to the fact that "Jimmy" suddenly ''has breasts''. (All outfits in the game, regardless of which sex they're meant for, have both male and female models to fit the PC's body.)
** Ultimately it's subverted - you are in fact detected - except it's not for any of the obvious stuff. It's because ''your eyes'' are the wrong colour. One can only cite the RuleOfFunny.

* GiantMook: The bands of highwaymen usually have a member who's about ten feet tall and built like a small mountain. And can shoot fire at you. And can perform a ShockwaveStomp fire attack.
** GirlOnGirlIsHot: If you're playing as a female character during the tabletop game quest you find a princess who you can kiss even if you're a girl as well, the three gamers in charge of the game take notice. One of them definitely approves.

* FascistButInefficient: How Logan runs Albion.

* FascistButInefficient: How Logan runs Albion. If the state of things when [[spoiler: the player deposes him are anything to go by, Logan would probably have run Albion into the ground ''and'' left it totally unprepared for the Crawler. Meaning that not only were his repressive actions heinous, they were also ''entirely pointless''.]]

After getting the Guild Seal which allows the Hero to use magic, and [[GondorCallsForAid gathering support throughout the land]], the Hero takes the throne. However, this isn't the end. As it turns out, [[spoiler: your brother was simply doing his best to hold off the darkness, and could not tell anyone about it, thus causing his tyranny.]]
