* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Bobbin turns into a swan, and, together with the other weavers, is only able to save half the world after sacrificing the Loom. The BigBad, Chaos, claims the other half of the world, swearing to torment and ruin it so Bobbin will forever be tormented by thoughts of the half of humanity he abandoned. Oh, and Hetchel dies.]]

In fairness, the story was ''supposed'' to get a continuation, but the failure of the sequels to materialize means that the ending suffers from LeftHanging something fierce.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: You encounter several graveyards in the game. Trying to cast "open" on them will result in an ominous rumble and Bobbin going "Uh-oh." but no further effect. You will learn what that is all about.

* TheWeirdSisters: The three Elders of the Guild of Weavers are named Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos like the Moirai of Myth/GreekMythology. The Weavers have mastered the art of weaving "subtle patterns of influence into the very fabric of reality" and are the keepers of the Great Loom, a device that is able to predict the future as well as to manipulate reality.

* LeftHanging: The game will probably feel depressingly short for many players. Many potentially interesting drafts is only needed once and many plot points that could have been exciting to explore in greater detail is never resolved. The game was going to have two sequels, but these were cancelled because of other projects. It is a damn shame, really. Even worse, the Book of Patterns that [[{{Feelies}} comes with the game]] includes a host of unused spells that could have been very useful in the game proper, but were never heard.

* AlmightyJanitor: Taken UpToEleven and ''beyond'' in the backstory. The guilds started out as just that, guilds representing common laborers, like glassmakers, blacksmiths, and shepherds, but now have all evolved to a point where they rule the world. For instance, the glassmakers can make crystal balls that can see the future, or they can make an AbsurdlySharpBlade out of glass capable of fighting an army. The weavers, of course, became powerful [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]] capable of reweaving reality itself.
