* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Standard Western dragons are present in Arr-Keelan. They are intelligent and have language of their own, but no one else (except gods) can understand it, so they're [[FantasticRacism treated like mere beasts.]]

* OurElvesAreBetter: Similar to Durrill, Beyurn (the Goddess of War) looks like an elf but is really an elf-like humanoid alien from our universe, called a Juhlahn. Actual fantasy elves are present on Arr-Keelan as well.

* PathOfInspiration: A lot of religions before the Travellers arrived were created for a deity's self gratification. They're rarely actively evil, and mostly if the worship is rolling in the gods don't care what the people get up to.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilutionaryBiologist: Kerrimachus claims to spread vicious diseases to strengthen mortal kind. Though Sephin's narration about him flunking medical school 5 times suggests there may also be an element of spite involved.

* TheAgeless: Any mortals who take up with a god, romantically or otherwise. One of the guards at the beginning of "Going Home" whom Bikk grants an ever-full mug of ale (in the guise of Ronson) ends up Ronson's longest-lived follower because it turns out [[ImmortalityInducer drinking regularly from a godly artifact keeps him forever young]], even if the ale does kind of suck.

Bikk grants an one ever-full mug of ale (in the guise of Ronson) each to the two guards at the beginning of "Going Home". The guard who actually uses his ends up as Ronson's longest-lived follower because it turns out [[ImmortalityInducer drinking regularly from a godly artifact keeps him forever young]], even if the ale does kind of suck.

Added DiffLines:

* HomeFieldAdvantage: Gods are more powerful on their home plane, which is why the gods of Arr-Kelaan have an advantage against the old Earth gods, despite being less experienced and having fewer paths to the light.

* AbstractApotheosis: Possibly the fate of the nature goddess, who seems to have given up physical form.
* AkashicRecords: Everything in Arr-Kelaan is projected to the dead lands. Claremont took advantage of this to create a library with all information ever written.



* DevilButNoGod

to:

* DevilButNoGodDevilButNoGod: Satan is a title for the god in charge of Hell, who imprisons other gods to serve as [[LivingBatteries Living Batteries]]. But the world setting has no TopGod, nor do the CouncilOfAngels have any counterpart of their own. In fact, the very idea of an abstract TopGod is essentially a fraud used to harvest all mortal belief into a great machine.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMagicGoesAway: What happened to Earth. All worlds have a certain amount of magic allocated to them. Since the universe Earth exists in is constantly expanding, the magic was increasingly diluted, requiring the gods to exert more and more power to do anything. It eventually got to the point that even multiple pantheons working together could only do the slightest of things. Physical manifestations became impossible.

''The Gods of Arr-Kelaan'' is written and drawn by Chuck Rowles, edited and proofread by his wife Martha, and colored by his brother Steve. It's currently on hiatus since Chuck has opened a comic shop. The world of Arr-Kelaan began as a homebrewed setting for ''Advanced DungeonsAndDragons'', written by Rowles's friend Leonard Zaikoski. The two projects gradually diverged, though are still mutually recognizable. The comic is set largely in the setting's Bronze and Iron Ages, though the setting stretches into a Modern Age with steam engines and railroads. More information on the setting can be found [[http://www.rmcomics.com/ak/ here]].

* TheSoulless: Most gods are almost nothing ''but'' soul, but Salsmen somehow doesn't have one, even though a soulless god is generally believed to be impossible. This is how he was able to get the drop on an ancient god of death; He was unable to sense Salsmen's divinity and was thus taken by surprise.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Ronson to Beyurn, after revealing to her that they can raise the dead: "How many soldiers died for you, only to have you turn your back on them, Beyurn?" It gets her to reconsider her idea of a grand militaristic empire to bring order to the world, because she realized how callous she was being to her own followers, proclaiming herself a god and yet never even trying to resurrect anyone.



* RedOniBlueOni: Krushcor and Beyurn

to:

* RedOniBlueOni: Krushcor and BeyurnBeyurn, in a very Ares and Athena way. Beyurn still manages to be the Red Oni to several other gods like Claremont, because she's pretty HotBlooded. Krushcor's just even more so.
* ReluctantHero: Ronson and, by extension, anyone suited to follow him yet still gets involved in helping people.



* TalkingAnimal: Pilfo

to:

* TalkingAnimal: PilfoPilfo, a boy transformed into a dog by Loki. He goes on to [[spoiler:aid the Sharras and learns how to switch back to his human form when he wants]].



* TheSoCalledCoward: Shadowscared, the god of fear, is terrified of almost everything. But when Zeus threatens to kill Bunny, the goddess of happiness, he manages to protect her by terrifying Zeus.
