** YOU can also be an EvilSorcerer if you want. If you really want to be evil, you can [[KickTheDog kick the cute puppy to death]] and then laugh at the girl who just wants her dog back. And then fry everyone in the village with lightning bolts.

* TooDumbToLive: Closing the Chaos Gate as a chaotic Chaos Knight snuffs out your existence as a reward for your betrayal. The guidebook refers to it as the "Most Stupid Follower of ChAoS" ending.

* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Played straight, but... Since any spells you learn are completely dependent upon you finding their (very fragile) spell books, a wizard may be forced to become a MagicKnight. Yes, a wizard with a few elemental bolt spells will be able to fry legions of {{Mooks}} with one hand tied behind his back, but he'd do better to save those spells and use the mooks for training his weapon skill in anticipation of an artifact. Elementalists are similar in that a lot of later monsters are [[WeaksauceWeakness immune to fire and ice]].

* LostForever: Oh so much. Put off entering the Pyramid or the Minotaur Maze until you have better gear? Oops, they close up once you reach a certain level. Talked to a certain NPC who immediately died? No Ultra Ending for you!
** An even crueler example resides at the end of a particularly painful sidequest. After you defeat a nasty BonusBoss, you get a unique scroll to take to a NPC to get the InfinityPlusOneSword. The scroll can be destroyed like any other inventory item. If you read it, you can use a rare item to rewrite it. If you didn't...goodbye Ultra Ending.

Find it [[http://www.adom.de here]]. A sequel called ''ADOM II: Legends of Ancardia'' has been released, and can be found [[http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/ Here]], but it's still a work in progress. In addition, a crowd-funded campaign to give more updates to ADOM I was [[http://www.indiegogo.com/resurrect-adom-development very successful]] so it will be receiving updates in the near future, and eventually a release on Steam.

* ArtifactOfDoom: [[spoiler:The Chaos Orbs contain powerful magic, but the player is corrupted upon using. There are many other artifacts that qualify; some literally "doom" the player, some corrupt the player merely by carrying them around, some do both and curse themselves on equipping to make it as hard as possible to get rid of them.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: Quite a few class powers sound powerful but are really nerfed by other costs. For instance, the monk's level 6 power is a [[HurricaneKick circular kick]], but kicking is among one of the weaker attacks in the game and the power costs 2500 energy points to use. In other words, anything you don't manage to kill with the attack gets at least 2-3 free hits on you.

** CursedWithAwesome: On the other hand, a few of the corruptions have minor drawbacks, such as [[RedRightHand becoming horrendously ugly]] - which, of course, [[NightmareFetishist is subjective]].
** Several non-corruption character traits are also double-edged - [[PowerIncontinence randomly teleporting]] is overrated, and even invisibility has its (minor) downsides.

*** In the same manner, doing alchemy wrong will kill you (and doing it right will still probably kill you), even with completely mundane ingredients, such as mixing as a potion of orange juice with a potion of water (or ''two potions of water''), resulting in a [[MadeOfExplodium vast explosion]].

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: To a certain degree of good. As of version 1.2.0, having an appearance score above 10 increases the amount of corruption required to gain another corruption. Because most of the corruptions penalize appearance, this means that corruptions cause a cumulative acceleration of how quickly the character gets corruptions.
