** One storylet ([[spoiler: Playing With Broken Toys]]) forces you ''not'' to be to progress. [[spoiler: Namely, one card has a child get a toy that you damn well suspect from previous cards is a killing device, and asks her dad to wind it up. If you stop him, he lives... but you don't learn more about the toys. ''And'' you get nightmares from the sight.]]

* CrazyAwesome: ''Many'' things in the game are strange and inexplicable and they can be both horrifying and funny. Sometimes [[LightmareFuel both at once.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OrderVersusChaos: Many conflicts in the Neath seem to be based around defiance and revolution against imposed systems. London's Revolutionaries are railing against the Masters. The devils have already revolted, banished and/or exterminated their once-rulers, and discard their laws for new ones (including laws of [[RealityWarper biology and physics]]) daily. There's an ongoing question of whether all laws are arbitrarily bad, whether they exist for a reason, and what your motives are for taking either side.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: DeathIsCheap in the Neath, but usually old age catches up with you. [[spoiler: Unless you're the the Duchess, the Gracious Widow, or the Manager of the Royal Beth. They're all from the previous Fallen Cities, and all have found some means of sticking around. The Widow, at least, has to smuggle it in from overseas.]]

** When trying to reduce Suspicion, one option involves leaving a fake one: stacking vases in the privy, leaving origami swans everywhere, and writing nonsense on the walls.

* SadisticChoice: The University arc ends with one. [[spoiler:You finally discover the identity of the murderer of the Headmaster of the Department of ____, but there's one problem: The murderer turns out to be the Provost of Summerset College, and the Masters themselves send you a letter telling you that sending one of the most respected scholars in London to prison would all but destroy your career. You are given a choice between telling the truth, which results in the Provost facing justice but all but destroys your reputation in the University (which can only be restored by a lengthy, costly sidequest), or you can accuse the other suspect, ensuring your career's survival but condemning an innocent woman to a FateWorseThanDeath.]]
** The Finder of Heiresses case also ends with one. [[spoiler:You find the missing Comtessa, only to learn that her Clay Man kidnapper/lover has put her through a process that is about to permanently turn her to stone. She can no longer speak to you. You have the choice to kill her on the spot to spare her from a FateWorseThanDeath, or to leave her alive. The game leaves it deliberately ambiguous which choice was the right one, if any.]]

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: During the storyline where the player investigates a murder at the University, the Duchess may reveal that [[spoiler:she bargained with the Bazaar after her husband was bitten by a serpent. He survived, but in the monstrous and agonising form of the Cantigaster. She theorises that a similar fate awaits the Empress and her Consort. "There is always a price that is known and a price that is not."]]
