* LowFantasy: It's a cynical, brutal, low-magic world set AfterTheEnd. There are stories of a long-dead empire that used to employ fantastical magical powers and who fought with gods at their side, but naturally all that power in the hands of mortals ended up leading to the [[CrapsackWorld current status quo]] because HumansAreBastards. Pretty much all magic is of the enchantment type: unlike many other {RolePlayingGame}s, being a wizard is simply not an option here, as your character will never be able to cast a single spell.
* [[spoiler: It 'is' however possible for a very skilled Loremaster to unlock many of the secrets left behind by the ancient civilization, including some of their nearly invincible armor and regenerative machines.]]
** [[spoiler: In the case of very skilled, and particularly callous Loremasters, it's even possible to unlock enough of the ancient secrets to destroy the world 'again.']]

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: It's Rome, albeit a (previously) more {{steampunk}}-esque version of it. Various background references refer to other countries and cultures with variations on their commonly used name ("Kemet" for Egypt, the Egyptian name for it) or not even that (Phrygians, an actual people).
* GladiatorGames: The Arena in Maadoran is a textbook example: duels to the death, and a Champion waiting for you at the top.

It's also quite similar to ''VideoGame/{{Darklands}}'' in several aspects, being based on a low-magic pseudo-historical setting with a brutal difficulty curve.

Added DiffLines:

** PhysicalGod: [[spoiler: One of the endings allows you to become one. It's also an AmbiguousEnding, as final slides for it give you very little information on what has become of the world - you are free to imagine any outcome.]]
** DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: several endings are reached by punching out [[spoiler: Agathoth.]] The game hints several times that such a feat is only possible due to very special circumstances and character's extreme martial prowess.
** ILoveNuclearPower: a few endings revolve around [[spoiler: a literal nuclear bomb. You're also free to use it wreck what little is left of civilized world.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardGameOver: Failing nearly any of the skill checks in dialogue leads to you getting one shotted in a cutscene, with no chance to fight back. [[NintendoHard Its that kind of game]].

* SealedEvilInACan: [[spoiler: You can find one of the Gods at the bottom of the Abyss. Let's just say that centuries after being left in the bunker without being able to move have destroyed its sanity a bit. If you decide to unleash it instead of putting him out of his misery, it destroys Maadoran to the last stone. ]]
