* {{Expy}}: Lord Gathbin from ''The White March Part 2'' is one to Lord Roenall from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'''s Fighter Stronghold sidequests. Both are arrogant {{Smug Snake}}s and [[AristocratsAreEvil evil nobles]] who claim that the main character's PlayerHeadquarters is theirs by right, hurl insults and threats at the player, and when their legal means of attempting to take the player's fortress fails, they try to take it by force with a massive army, culminating in an intense battle between your forces and his.

Added DiffLines:

* DividedWeFall: The dwarves of Durgan's Battery were said to have been wiped out by civil war. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out that the Eyeless killed them all. While tensions among the dwarven leaders over how to use the White Forge lead to the dwarves dividing into factions, all of these factions did not hesitate to join forces when the Eyeless invaded and there is no indication that the division contributed to the dwarves' probably inevitable defeat.]]

* InfinityPlusOneSword: St. Ydwen's Redeemer is a soulbound greatsword dropped by a random mook outside Durgan's Battery. Soulbound weapons evolve as you fulfill various conditions, but even in its base form the Redeemer has a 25% chance of instantly destroying Vessel-type enemies on contact. [[spoiler: BonusBoss Concelhaut is a Vessel. So are the massive Eyeless who appear at the end of the White March storyline, and the giant Guardians of Woedica that Thaos animates in the final battle.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyConflictCounterpart:
** Broken Stone War, War of Black Trees and really the whole relationship between Aedyr (and later, Dyrwood) and Glanfathans resembles both Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain and European colonization of North America.
** War of Defiance, where now ''Free'' Palatinate of Dyrwood gained independence from Aedyr Empire, is UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution.
** Saint's War is a more ambiguous example, but has some notable familiarities with UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar: agrarian, traditionalist Readceras and industrial, more liberal Dyrwood resemble the sides pretty well, though the reasons for war were different.

* ExpansionPack: ''The White March'', which Obsidian compared to ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheSwordCoast'' in terms of scope. While it is available to buy as a single product, it was released in two parts so that they can could develop it faster.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Durance muses that maybe Eothas waged the war to prevent [[spoiler:Woedica's plot]]. If that is true, the Hollowborn epidemic was indeed caused by killing Eothas, not as divine punishment, but [[spoiler:because of the destruction of the only thing that was trying to prevent it]].

** In "The White March", restoring the White Forge [[spoiler:awakens the Eyeless to kill everyone who knows of the Forge. Unfortunately, that constitutes the entire population of the Dyrwood and Readceras.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SuddenDownerEnding: If you have both parts of the "White March" expansion pack installed and beat the game with only the first part complete, [[spoiler:the last epilogue slide reveals that, shortly after thwarting Thaos, you were killed when the Eyeless razed the Dyrwood.]]

*** It's even worse than that. The raider [[spoiler: was Maerwald in a previous incarnation -- he is his own father, by rape. No wonder Maerwald is insane.]]
