Added DiffLines:

** If after day 16 you spend all your time outside of town and miss the caravan, the "go home" destination for your Saurus gets changed to Raseir, even though you can't get in since you did not get your visa from Khaveen, at which point you are screwed.
** And if past that point you wait until day 30, you will STILL get [[spoiler:the ItsAWonderfulFailure with Iblis destroying the city... [[InSpiteOfANail Even though you could NOT have been here to get the statue for Ad Avis.]]]] Arguably the reason why the FanRemake forces you to join up with the caravan when your time is up.


Added DiffLines:

** Not quite since in the original game it was possible to [[UnwinnableByInsanity miss the caravan]].


Added DiffLines:

** You also pull one when taking out Ad Avis. And once more when the Sultan crowns you, or when Rakeesh makes you a Paladin.

** In addition, there's Sweeping Sir James, a [[FalledHero bandit turned hero]] with [[MasterOfAll all abilities.]] Beating him gives you the [[MonsterCompendium Warrior's Diary]].

** The griffon could count as well, since there's only one in the entire game, and it won't attack unless you provoke it.
*** The griffon might count as a Penalty Boss: awaken him, and you disqualify yourself from becoming a Paladin in the original version. This was unintentional, according to WordOfGod. The designer happened to give too big of an honor penalty.

** When the Genie grants you three wishes, you get one if your third wish isn't to escape or the equivalent.
** If you ignore the Saurus-seller too often, you get one for not buying the Saurus.
** Attacking Julanar gets you one, and an apparently broken monitor.

* WizardingSchool: The Wizard's Institute of Technocery. Characters capable of using magic can go there, pass their tests, and gain acceptance into the school. However, actually choosing to attend the school is a NonStandardGameOver, since the four masters that administer the tests all insist that you remain at W.I.T. and study for about 20 years before rejoining the rest of the world, and they want you to start immediately (and of course, if you choose to stay, Shapeir is destroyed because [[HoldingOutForAHero you weren't there to save it]]). Refuse and the masters get miffed, but [[EccentricMentor Erasmus]] congratulates you on making the better choice, because how are you going to make a difference in the world when you're stuck at W.I.T. and not putting your magic to good use?

* NonStandardGameOver: Taking the oath to be accepted into the Wizards' Institute of Technocery. You get the best education imaginable and become a knowledgeable and accomplished Wizard, but you spend about twenty years doing so, dooming the land of Shapeir you left behind.
** Or in the FanRemake, picking the black screen (aka the Dark Master) will get the wizards to land you in [[VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV the Mordavian swamps]] for your impertinence, but you would be two games too early, and have no way of surviving it. Also counts as a MythologyGag since the death message states "Now you know why Quest for Glory III didn't take place here".

* CombatPragmatist: The Fighter's final challenge at the end of the game is a duel with [[TheDragon Khaveen]], and the guy is no slouch when it comes to swordplay. The beginning of the battle has him disarming you and then demanding that you yield. Only by blocking with your shield can you retrieve your sword; if your parry skill is too low, he'll kill you when you try. Likewise, shortly afterwards, you will disarm him. You can take the easy way out and kill him immediately with a slash attack, which is also helpful for the strict time limit that you're under. [[HonorBeforeReason Or you can tell him to retrieve his sword and continue the fight honorably, which is required to become a paladin.]] In the remake, this is the point at which he'll pull out the stops and seriously try to kick your ass.

** Amusingly enough, it is possible to play through the original game without ever going into the desert, or at least not passing by Ali Fakur enough times to set him off. If you do this you miss out on a fair number of sidequests, but you can skip buying the saurus and still play through the game without getting the NonStandardGameOver. [[InSpiteOfANail Before you leave for Raseir, however, the saurus will still show up at Aziza's house]].
