Added DiffLines:

* FailureHero: The Bachelor. His wins are few and far between, his allies either fold or betray him, and ultimately it's the Haruspex who discovers the Panacea. It's not shocking that he eventually decides the only thing about the town worth saving is the Polyhedron.


Added DiffLines:

* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: It's revealed in the Changeling's story that the trials that the Haruspex goes through [[spoiler:were attempts by the Elder to kill him due to jealousy]]

Added DiffLines:

* AllJustADream: As revealed when the players finally meet the Powers That Be, [[spoiler:the entire game is a... game, played by two children. The Changeling, who meets them twice, further finds out that it's their way of coping with a death, as they just got back from a funeral. The Perfect Ending, meanwhile, has the Executor and Tragedian give their bows and address the players directly, with the player given the choice to disavow the choices of their chosen character, or take them as their own]]


Added DiffLines:

* DramaticIrony: Whenever the scenarios cross over.
** In the Bachelor's scenario, the Haruspex murders a young woman whose father financed his bail. In the Haruspex scenario, while other options are available, murdering the girl is the most pragmatic solution, as other candidates are heavily guarded.
** The Changeling calls to the aid of an Earth spirit, which in the Bachelor's scenario can be murdered, to the Changeling's horror
** Bachelor and Haruspex deal with Quarantine being broken. The Changeling breaks quarantine in order to prevent visions from two of the prophetesses from coming true.


Added DiffLines:

* EnemyWithout: Early on, the Changeling lies to her patrons and says anyone killed by her HealingHands was actually killed by her evil twin. Naturally, said evil twin shows up for real, and becomes the Changeling's primary antagonist.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The opening begins with a group of children performing a funeral for a doll, obviously trying to deal with something they have little context to understand. [[spoiler: The same is true with the Powers That Be, who created the entire scenario as a way of processing their own grief]]


Added DiffLines:

* PerspectiveFlip: The three healers go through roughly the same events, with only slight inconsistencies. As each player character has patronage with different ruling families, characters who are friendly in one playthrough will be dismissive to antagonistic in another.
