* PoorCommunicationKills: Half of the plot revolves around this. [[spoiler: After returning from Aurora with an entire army missing, Logan could have confided in his private council (Walter, The Hero, et al) the actual events that elapsed there. Despite what Theresa says about, "The Crawler is something you had to see for yourself", in a world where monsters roam the land and cosmic abominations from The Void are renown throughout history it would not have been hard to persuade his closest friends to trust him and help enable intelligent policy revisions to prepare for invasion.]]
** [[spoiler: Let's not forget about the families of Logan's legion of dead soldiers who make no effort to inquire as to what happened exactly.]]
** The entire reason is that Theresa ''warned'' him that if he ''told'' anyone, it would attract the attention of [[spoiler: The Crawler]] and it would attack sooner than desired.

* PaperThinDisguise: There's a particular quest where the player must dress up as a mercenary, and pose as their comrade "Jimmy" in order to sneak into their camp. It makes sense, sort of, if the PC is male, but if female, somehow the mercenaries remain oblivious to the fact that "Jimmy" suddenly ''has breasts''. (All outfits in the game, regardless of which sex they're meant for, have both male and female models to fit the PC's body.)
** Ultimately it's subverted - you are in fact detected - except it's not for any of the obvious stuff. It's because ''your eyes'' are the wrong colour. One can only cite the RuleOfFunny.

* GiantMook: The bands of highwaymen usually have a member who's about ten feet tall and built like a small mountain. And can shoot fire at you. And can perform a ShockwaveStomp fire attack.
** GirlOnGirlIsHot: If you're playing as a female character during the tabletop game quest you find a princess who you can kiss even if you're a girl as well, the three gamers in charge of the game take notice. One of them definitely approves.

* FascistButInefficient: How Logan runs Albion.

* FascistButInefficient: How Logan runs Albion. If the state of things when [[spoiler: the player deposes him are anything to go by, Logan would probably have run Albion into the ground ''and'' left it totally unprepared for the Crawler. Meaning that not only were his repressive actions heinous, they were also ''entirely pointless''.]]

After getting the Guild Seal which allows the Hero to use magic, and [[GondorCallsForAid gathering support throughout the land]], the Hero takes the throne. However, this isn't the end. As it turns out, [[spoiler: your brother was simply doing his best to hold off the darkness, and could not tell anyone about it, thus causing his tyranny.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The invasion in the second half of the game was originally supposed to be the Auroran civilization. Perhaps because of this plot's uncomfortable similarity with real-life events, the enemy was ultimately changed to an OutsideContextVillain in the form of the Crawler.

So now you're king, and you have a job to do. What are you going to do? [[SadisticChoice Keep your promises or become no different from your brother]]? [[TakeAThirdOption Or perhaps spam house ownership to save the kingdom and be a good king]]?

The choice is yours...
