* CrapsackWorld: Oh boy, where to begin. Pagan is a world [[TheBadGuyWins the Guardian has conquered]], and the results are not pretty. The skies are constantly covered with dark clouds (or perhaps ash) and ''the sun'' is merely an obscure myth. Human life manages to continue only by the people worshiping elemental Titans who constantly lend their power to help the people, and the Titans are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. The largest (and only) human city is ruled by a petty tyrant. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero And the Avatar over the course of his efforts to find a way home arguably makes things ''worse''.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Given the central {{Aesop}} of the story is that sometimes you have to commit evil acts in pursuit of greater good, the Avatar gets some very deserved ones. Some of the biggest are the Theurgists after the Avatar steals the magical artifact that gives them the connection to their Titan and allows their healing magic to function. Another is after the Avatar frees Hydros, the Titan of Water, on empty promises of gaining the powers of Tempestry, and the Titan then goes on to cause constant rain with the intent of drowning everyone.

->"You have been a thorn in my side for far too long, Avatar. Your two worlds will be crushed. Britannia first, then Earth. I shall parade you before their conquered peoples as the fallen idol of a pathetic ideal. I banish you to the world of Pagan. No one here knows of the Avatar!"

* ElementalPlane: Each of the four Titans lives in a separate region of the world, which is themed around the element associated with that Titan. Each region includes relevant supernatural occurrences (floating rock platforms in the Air region, undead roaming the Earth region, etc.). Furthermore, there's the Aether region which is an actual Elemental Plane outside the world of Pagan.



** Thaumaturgy encompasses a diverse series of spells, apparently all related to the mysterious element of Aether.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Per [[WordOfGod Word of Garriot]], he had to appease shareholders, who basically demanded he make a console platformer, as well as rush it out ahead of schedule.
