* HeroAntagonist:
** Haze Commander Parmor, general of the Steam Giants, is a decent person who is just trying to save her people from the disastrous consequences of Tantalos' attack on the Kruk Pride. She also despises the Chief Councilor, and refuses to waste any parts on repairing his teapot.
** Aeryn, leader of the Sun Paladins, helped save the world in the last game. Now she's defending her people - problem is, ''your'' people are her people's hereditary enemies, and you've been committing genocide against each other for Ages.

* GeniusBruiser: The Steam Giants are supposed to be a race of these; a highly-advanced and intelligent race of giants. Their leader...doesn't really live up to the ideal; he's a combination of a brutish thug, a SmugSnake and an UpperClassTwit.

* SmugSnake: Councilor Tantalos combines the worst parts of slimy politician and would-be dictator. [[spoiler: And that's ''before'' he rushes off to the Loyalist and becomes an abomination.]]

* UpperClassTwit: Tantalos insists on having his steam-powered teapot functional at all costs, even on a trip to the center of the Earth.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: There's a reason you're repeatedly warned that [[CloudCuckooLander Nektosh the One-Horned]], an [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot undead minotaur who thinks he's part-unicorn]], has a [[WaveMotionGun beam spell]] that tends to blow holes through mountains. It's the most powerful attack in the game [[spoiler: on its first shot]], dealing an [[OneHitKill utterly unsurvivable]] amount of damage (barring a few edge cases). [[spoiler:Unsurprising, considering he stuck a [[LostTechnology Sher'Tul death-wand]] in his horn...]]



* NoKillLikeOverkill: Kaltor's finest creation, '''''DESTRUCTICUS, IMPOLITE PENETRATOR OF THE SKY''''', is designed as the ultimate luxury purchase for an upper-class society with a macho streak, and is specifically noted as being able to destroy "golems smaller than a medium-sized village." [[spoiler: When you find it in the epilogue, the "merciful" option involves launching it at ''a single imp.'']]




to:

* YetAnotherStupidDeath: The achievement "We Weren't Kidding!" is awarded for dying to Nektosh the One-Horned's [[CrosshairAware extremely obvious]] OneHitKill. What pushes this into YASD territory is that the achievement is ''only'' awarded if you had no movement-or-control-impairing debuffs on you, meaning you stood in the brightly-colored targeting path for several turns of your own free will.

** Averted in the time pocket. [[spoiler: When you fight Maltoth the Mad, [[PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo the Hero of Maj'Eyal and Scourge from the West]], you're fighting a character from a possible universe and ''not'' necessarily the actual Scourge from your world's past.]]



* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Steam technology is unknown in Maj'Eyal proper. Tinker characters can nonetheless be unlocked for the Age of Ascendancy campaign; this option is "not lore-canonical, but fun!"

Likewise, tinkers can appear as escorts in Maj'Eyal, and you can learn their abilities (which in turn causes tech items to become available in the main campaign for that playthrough).

'''''Tales of Maj'Eyal''''' is a {{Roguelike}} with a long history, stretching back at least 10 years. Originally titled ''[[Literature/DragonridersOfPern Pernband]]'', it was a variant of the classic Roguelike ''VideoGame/{{Angband}}'' with Pern influences -- although all Pern influences were removed following a Cease and Desist letter in the late 90s. It was then renamed ''Tales of Middle Earth'', the various Tolkien elements refined and perfected, and development continued on it off and on for a decade.

* BoomerangBigot: [[spoiler: The High Priest of Amakthel hates all Sher'Tul, including himself, for the crime of turning against their god. He fully expects - even wants - Amakthel to destroy him for the sins of his people. Interestingly, it's unclear whether Amakthel shares his opinion, as the reawakening god helps him out to the limit of His ability in the final battle.]]

* FantasyGunControl: Averted by Gunslingers and Psyshots, though this technology is canonically limited to the Atmos Tribe and the Kruk Pride. Gunpowder doesn't seem to exist, however - steamguns use steam pressure to shoot sling bullets.

* CharacterTiers: The monster tiers. You have Critter, which is basically cannon fodder, Normal, which is your average enemy, Elite, which is fairly dangerous and has similar stats to you, Boss, which is a seriously major enemy you need to be prepared for, and Elite Boss, which is limited to the most powerful, important and dangerous characters in the game. Your PC is Elite, by the way.
