* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Sorrow sees the torment caused by the Changing God and wishes to hunt him for a long-awaited judgment, but that also means for him to eradicate his castoffs who are more of victims than enemies.

It is one of the many games-crowd funded via Website/{{Kickstarter}}, and is scheduled for release in 2016, with the beta [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/torment-tides-of-numenera/posts/1459003 being released as an Early Access title in January]].

At the time, it was the most funded game on Kickstarter with over $4.1 million raised, for a grand total of around $4.5 million, counting donations from other sources.

* CharacterAlignment: Rather than the usual KarmaMeter, the game uses a "Tides" system. A Tide represents your character's path in life, with all its motivations, desires and actions, and waxing (or waning) into a Tide will affect the gameplay and story. There are five Tides in all, and none of them are in strict opposition with another. They are as follows:
** The Gold Tide represents charity, compassion, empathy, sacrifice, and other socially-oriented traits.
** The Indigo Tide encompasses justice, equity, compromise, the greater good, and other communally-oriented traits.
** The Silver Tide involves admiration, power, fame, and other ambition-related traits.
** The Red Tide includes passion, emotion, action, pathos, zeal, and other emotional traits.
** The Blue Tide maps to reason, insight, wisdom, and other intellectual traits.

** Unlike most examples of the trope, though; this is mainly because your character, quite literally, did not ''have'' a life before the Changing God's departure - the Last Castoff is born moment the Changing God departs his body. The Last Castoff is not recalling their own life, but fragments of the Changing God's life.

* BizarreAlienReproduction: Sn'erf is an alien studying these. He goes on to describe several cases to you. That includes human reproduction, although he strongly suspects the people who described that were {{troll}}ing him. Judging from his description, that was certainly the case. His own race reproduces by [[spoiler:detaching their limbs - and even heads - and growing them into complete beings. He, himself, is an exile from his planet after stumbling across a machine that replaced his limbs - which is a great disgrace among his people which he couldn't prove was accidental.]]
