** Not quite since in the original game it was possible to [[UnwinnableByInsanity miss the caravan]], yet end up with [[ItsAWonderfulFailure Iblis destroying the world]].

* RemixedLevel: In-universe, Raseir is this to Shapeir, as its twin sister city. The Hero gets to experience it as a very jarring dark mirror to Shapeir, complete with dilapidation (that poor fountain!) and despair, and [[TropesAreNotBad the gap between both is very effective]]. Bonus points for it actually re-using exactly the same data in-game, with mainly a tweaked color palette.

* CheckhovsGun: The Reversal spell. It was hinted to in the first game, and you get to learn it from Erasmus. It comes in very handy at the end of the game.

* InitiationCeremony: If you have had enough Paladin points, Rakeesh will offer you to become a Paladin, bestowing upon you his flaming sword.



** If you ignore the Saurus-seller too often, you get one for not buying the Saurus.

* WizardingSchool: The Wizard's Institute of Technocery. Characters capable of using magic can go there, pass their tests, and gain acceptance into the school. However, actually choosing to attend the school is a NonStandardGameOver, since the four masters that administer the tests all insist that you remain at W.I.T. and study for about 20 years before rejoining the rest of the world, and they want you to start immediately (and of course, if you choose to stay, Shapeir is destroyed because [[HoldingOutForAHero you weren't there to save it. On the other hand, you also ensure that Ad Avis can't free Iblis]]). Refuse and the masters get miffed, but [[EccentricMentor Erasmus]] congratulates you on making the better choice, because how are you going to make a difference in the world when you're stuck at W.I.T. and not putting your magic to good use?

* CombatPragmatist: The Fighter's final challenge at the end of the game is a duel with [[TheDragon Khaveen]], and the guy is no slouch when it comes to swordplay. The beginning of the battle has him disarming you, then pointing his sword at yours on the floor, indicating that you should retrieve it to continue the fight. Likewise, shortly afterwards, you will disarm him. You can take the easy way out and kill him immediately with a slash attack, which is also helpful for the strict time limit that you're under. [[HonorBeforeReason Or you can tell him to retrieve his sword and continue the fight honorably, which is required to become a paladin.]] In the remake, this is the point at which he'll pull out the stops and seriously try to kick your ass.

The beginning of the battle has him disarming you, then pointing his sword at yours on the floor, indicating which point he'll demand that you should retrieve it grovel for mercy and try to continue the fight.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: In the remake, you can find a villainous example in Khaveen if you're a Fighter. In the beginning, you exchange blows and he seems rather simplistic in his combat style. Then, he knocks your sword out of your hands, which you can retrieve with some dodging. After doing the same to him, you have the opportunity of [[CombatPragmatist killing an unarmed man]], or giving him the opportunity to retrieve his sword. If you do the latter, Khaveen will get serious and the combat will be ''seriously'' difficult.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: The first game includes some data in the export file that determines whether you got rid of Baba Yaga or not and it also keeps track of the flasks of undead unguent you bought. The remake acknowledges this and at the few points in the game where Baba Yaga is mentioned you'll get different dialogue if your imported hero failed to deal with her. Likewise, your undead unguent will carry over and you can use it to make yourself temporarily immune to the ghouls' physical attacks. You can even offer the apothecary a sample because he's working on a similar oil, though it'll be declined since the oil is made from ingredients that aren't found in Shapeir.

Added DiffLines:

** It should also be noted there is an automatic Iblis game over trigger if you miss the caravan by staying at the oasis and screw around until day 30. Since it does not make sense, the FanRemake prevented this possibility.

* AdamSmithHatesYourGuts: Surprisingly averted. If you tell various merchants that you need their goods to stop the elementals currently destroying their city, they will give you what you need for free. The only exception is the Weapon Store owner, who's a JerkJock. [[TakeAThirdOption Each class has a method of getting the item from him]]: Fighters have to beat him at arm wrestling, Thieves steal it, and Wizards use the Calm spell and high Communications skill to persuade him. (Or come back at night and use the levitate or fetch spell to steal it.)

Added DiffLines:

** If after day 16 you spend all your time outside of town and miss the caravan, the "go home" destination for your Saurus gets changed to Raseir, even though you can't get in since you did not get your visa from Khaveen, at which point you are screwed.
** And if past that point you wait until day 30, you will STILL get [[spoiler:the ItsAWonderfulFailure with Iblis destroying the city... [[InSpiteOfANail Even though you could NOT have been here to get the statue for Ad Avis.]]]] Arguably the reason why the FanRemake forces you to join up with the caravan when your time is up.


Added DiffLines:

** Not quite since in the original game it was possible to [[UnwinnableByInsanity miss the caravan]].


Added DiffLines:

** You also pull one when taking out Ad Avis. And once more when the Sultan crowns you, or when Rakeesh makes you a Paladin.
