** Later, after the Gastonians suffer a defeat at the hands of the World's Rebellion, Penk delivers one to the Peacemakers.

* TheBerserker: Byron, though it takes a '''lot''' to push Subverted/[[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]. Byron the Berserker is arguably the most level-headed, well-adjusted member of the party because he apparently lives in fear of his BerserkButton, tendency to lose his shit and pushing it has ''consequences''. BewareTheNiceOnes, indeed.become a true, foaming at the mouth, screaming, psychotic, berserkergang killing machine. (He does enjoy a good bloodbath, though.)
** The condition is probably some kind of supernatural curse. A cultist once tried to force him to kill one of his friends with it, and there's a TroubledBackstoryFlashback that [[http://guildedage.net/webcomic/chapter-5/chapter-5-page-3/ hints he might have killed a town as a boy]].

** Payet. He was shocked (but not hammed) and dismayed that the core group was shocked that he saved Byron and after a small confession, he decided to be a better ally [[spoiler: and since he is supposed to found a basin that would tell him his destiny, this seems to be the flavor of the new chapter]].

* ArtShift: The world that most resembles ours is drawn in a more realistic style, and sepia-toned with occasional spot-coloring. A futuristic Tron-style world is rendered in bright neons, with strategic pixelation for effect.

The creator, [[TechnoWizard H.R.]] [[{{Technopath}} Dedalus]] can't get them out, and everything within the game seems to be taking a mind of its own.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early chapters had the characters engaging in a load of pop-culture references as casual dialog, Frigg moreso than anyone else, when they weren't all living in a WorldOfSnark. This faded over time as the setting developed into its current and somewhat more serious state.

* HumansAreBastards: Gastonia is pretty much a hive of racists out to conquer and plunder the planet in much the same vein as 17th-19th century colonialists. The comic has shown that no one, ''not a single'' race could be considered good or all that nice. Either they are: xenophobic, condescendent, tyrannical, downright genocidial or all of the above. Really, the only reason why Humans are labeled like this (at first), was because they were the only ones shown.

* DontExplainTheJoke: Inverted. Gravedust, easily the member of the cast most lacking in comedic ability, ends up having to pretend to be a comedian on a stage. He tells a mediocre joke about misfortune which the audience finds increasingly hilarious as he begins to explain how the joke actually depicts a very tragic situation and questions the audience's mirth.
