** Then again, its just as likely that the attack was done by a Red Legion bandit, as the questgiver confirms that the attacker's weapon was a dagger, the Legion's WeaponOfChoice.
*** Which is also [[spoiler:the group where one monk came from, though he has sworn against killing. It's possible another monk took the dagger to injure the Fae and then washed it and put it back before the owner noticed, though.]]

''Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning'' is an Action RPG developed by Big Huge Games (''VideoGame/RiseOfNations'', ''VideoGame/RiseOfLegends'') and 38 Studios, founded by [[UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} baseball legend Curt Schilling]] and named after the number he wore whilst playing for the Boston Red Sox. The game features the efforts of three "visionaries": a story written by fantasy author [[Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy R.A. Salvatore]], a lead artist in [[ComicBook/{{Spawn}} Todd McFarlane]] and its lead designer [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Ken]] [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Rolston]]. Schilling, [[OneOfUs a long-time MMO gamer]], provided the money... or, at least, [[http://www.joystiq.com/2012/05/16/the-scene-following-38-studios-emergency-meeting-with-rhode-i/ somebody's money]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArrangedMarriage: Both marriage options are of the 'diplomatic marriage' type. One of them was even set up [[AccidentalMarriage unintentionally]] because the bride's father wasn't paying attention.


Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: Pledge Ficon is clearly supposed to die during the first House of Ballads quest since he turns into a OneHitPointWonder at the end, but if you somehow manage to kill the rush of DemonicSpider Threshes before they can hit him he acknowledges [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere he's not cut out for this]].

Added DiffLines:

* DeathByIrony: All four of the main bosses in ''Legend of Dead Kel'', some more obviously than others:
** Bloodgrin is a huge, proud warrior known for splattering people with his massive warhammer. [[spoiler: He gets his head bashed in with a warhammer.]]
** The Whispering Witch is a mage who possesses a mastery over fate and relies on words and manipulation to get her way. [[spoiler: She gets stabbed in the mouth with her own fate.]]
** The Baronett is a pompous and flashy showoff who prizes his looks and loves to perform. [[spoiler: He gets his neck snapped in front of an audience, leaving an unblemished corpse.]]
** Dead Kel himself is a notorious criminal [[spoiler: who is angry at Akara for, in his eyes, taking his freedom. He gets crushed with a ball and chain.]]

** Rast Brattigan, your ship captain during the ''Legend of Dead Kel'' DLC, has a name suspiciously similar to [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} another famously incompetent ship captain]].

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Before murdering the heads of the Winter Court, forming the Tuatha, and leading them on a war to annihilate all mortals, according to the lorestones, Gadflow was... [[WhosLaughingNow the court jester of the Winter Court.]]

* BoringButPractical: Taking two levels in the "Detect Hidden" skill reveals hidden treasures. This makes a big difference to the amount of loot that you can equip, or sell, or use for crafting.
