* AnticlimaxBoss: The master of the Nighthawks is a major villain, and perhaps the third most important enemy in the game story-wise. However, he fights you solo, against three [=PCs=], one of whom is a mage who can keep him permanently stunlocked with Despair Thy Eyes or Fetters of Rime. He simply has no chance.

The oddest part is that someone took great care to make him a viable boss - he's one of the few enemies in the first chapters to carry heavily enchanted weapons, and is immune to most major insta-death (or equivalent) spells. He just wasn't supplied with the few flunkies necessary to make him actually somewhat challenging.

* * EnsembleDarkHorse: Gorath. Lots of fans and critics alike have called for more books with him. Getting this kind of reaction is no mean feat, especially when Jimmy the Hand is also on the stage.

* TearJerker: The ending. A lot of attention is given to the character arc of [[spoiler: Gorath, his struggle to accept humans as potential allies and eventually friends, and his TragicDream of reforming his people to a more peaceful, prosperous and less starving and cutthroat existence. At the end, he's the one who has to give his life to save the whole world if not the whole ''multiverse'' from the return of the [[AbusivePrecursors Valheru]]. When Delekhan tries to release them, Gorath stops him, but the Valheru start possessing them both. Upon hearing Pug say that the only way to save the world is to destroy both of them, and Owyn hesitating (not surprising for someone who has spent the entire story ''befriending'' him), Gorath shouts at him to [[KillUsBoth do it]]. He is subsequently blown to smithereens. His dream of reforming the moredhel? That dies with him. The epilogue leaves the fate of the moredhel somewhat open, with Narab ''or'' the more reasonable Liallan fighting for leadership, but there's nothing to be optimistic about. The books in the series, at least, make it clear that the moredhel don't seem to have changed much even centuries after ''Betrayal''. Gorath's death is made worse by the fact that he had previously ''Returned'', aka undergone a spiritual transformation to an ''eledhel'', which means that his exile and traitor status are no longer an issue and that he ''does'' have a place to go and happily spend the rest of his days in - although, considering that Gorath is interested in reformation of his whole people and not just himself and that Returning has burned all bridges to any future non-hostile contact with them, ''ever'', that might be a TearJerker just by itself. ]]

* FirstInstallmentWins: Sierra's management treated the game as just a marketing cash-in, and broke up the team that make it before they realized that they had a hit on their hands. As a result, while they later attempted to make several followups, none of them were able to compare to the original.

*** If the first target is an ogre, the damage to 'any' enemy is doubled. Guess who you fight right after finding this spell?
