* VideogameCaringPotential: Several missions reward you for caring more than the mission parameters require you to. Most famously, the mission in which you're sent to slay a troublesome dragon rewards you really well for taking the time to find out why the dragon is behaving the way it is and coming up with a better solution.

** Once the war actually becomes reality, Persephone tries to avoid making the gods killing each other. Her attempts to make Charnel, Pyro and Stratos see reason go... Altogether less than well.

* GoodIsNotSoft: James may be the most reluctant god to ''enter'' the war, but once it becomes inevitable he's the first 'good' god to suggest you ''end'' it by killing Pyro and Charnel.



* OnlySaneMan: James has elements of this. While the other gods are busy trying to kill each other, especially after a [[SelfFulfillingProphecy prophecy]] warns that one of their number is plotting to [[KilledOffForReal kill the rest off for real]], only poor James wonders if they should give all the fighting a rest.

* StoryBranching: Each time the gods offer Eldred a selection of missions, the player's choice affects the plot and Eldred's role in it; the missions that are passed up can not be gone back to later, and every few missions one of the gods will stop offering Eldred work, making that god's later missions inaccessible for the current playthrough. The branches don't go off in completely different directions, though; certain key plot events will always happen whether Eldred is present for them or not, and it always ends up with Eldred having only one god still talking to him and having to go out and face Marduk in a final showdown.

* ForWantOfANail: By playing through multiple playthroughs you soon get to see which missions which gods are capable of doing on their own, and which ones their own wizards will cock up because you didn't play a part, and how this begins affecting and twisting the overall story. Generally speaking, every god succeeds at their first three missions and the story progresses in the same way up to that point no matter which god(s) you serve, after that all bets are off.
** InSpiteOfANail: [[spoiler:Shakti and The Ragman]] will always be dead by the mid-game no matter what you do, as [[spoiler:Stratos' sneak attack on Elysium and James reconquering Karn]] will always succeed no matter the story up to that point. Finally, [[spoiler:Persephone will never survive the end of the game; either you kill her as Stratos or Charnel or she dies at Marduk's hand in the other campaigns. James will survive to deliver the victory speech in a Persephone campaign.]]
