* WintryAuroralSky: The northern lights can be seen when visiting Forochel at night. Justified in that it's a polar landscape and the northernmost region on the map.

* CosmeticAward: All characters start able to use the Cosmetic Outfit system, allowing you to display the clothing of your choosing while retaining the bonuses provided by the actual armor. Many prizes in the festivals are these, and the titles... well. This game has more titles than all other [=MMOs=] COMBINED. You can even fall down a well and get a title. [[spoiler:Well-Traveled.]]

** Averted. Outfits do not change design depending on a gender of a character, although some tops do mysteriously gain a lower cut for female characters. You don't even get to see a lot of [[SexyBacklessOutfit back]] and there's no [[BareYourMidriff midriff exposure]] at all. The most female exposure that you see that commonly turn males (and maybe females) on is exposure of the top part of the breast and some cleavage, which isn't even bad or as explicit as some other things you would most likely see in a lot of other games.

** Note that the barter wallet, key rings, quest items shown in the quest log, etc. were not around in the initial game. Quest items and keys really did fill up your inventory.

There are actually several deeds for slaying Nameless creatures. Ironically enough, many of the powerful ones have names.

Added DiffLines:

** Riders of Rohan does start with one particularly rough example. The first town that you come across is defeated by bandits who allied with Easterlings and a Nazgul. You help defend the town, and then the retreat. You find the widow of the Thane along with the remaining survivors near the capital of that region. One of the guards notices your ability, and kindly suggests that you go to the sitting Reeve (lord of the region) to see if you can be of any help to him. Said Reeve threatens to throw you in jail for being a suspicious outsider who's up to no good. Apparently, the game interprets you talking to him as interrupting his council and trying to be a suspicious nuisance, and forgets the fact that the reason you're talking to him is that you were just seeing if he needed any help. You then have to perform a ridiculous number of fetch quests while being under banishment from the town, even to the point where you're attempting to locate homes for the refugees while being on The Wold's Most Wanted list. Fortunately, the expansion gets much better once the NPC realizes he's being a JerkAss to you.
