* AnticlimaxBoss: The master of the Nighthawks is a major villain, serves as TheHeavy for chapters 2 and 3, 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.

* 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?

* GoodBadBugs: In combat you can do anything and then rest on the same turn, if you press "R" quickly enough. Or you can rest twice. This allows to recover quicker, and to waste no stamina on swings and "Despair thy Eyes" spells.

* {{Flanderization}}: Owyn suffers particularly from this in the novelization. In the game, he is an inexperienced youngster new to the trials of adventure who will occasionally voice a complaint when the going gets tough, but is rather plucky and likeable, and a very effective foil for Gorath. Owyn is [[{{Flanderisation}} Flanderised]] into a [[TheDitz clumsy]], [[BumblingSidekick whiny, incompetent]] ButtMonkey [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist comic relief]] character who, despite his [[CuriousAsAMonkey leech-like curiosity]] about magic in the game, has somehow ''willingly'' dropped out of Stardock and [[JumpedAtTheCall Jumps at the Call]] to avoid having to go home and [[WellDoneSonGuy face his disapproving father]]. For anyone who first played the game, it is particularly cringe-inducing as he is essentially the main viewpoint character there and the one the player is most likely/encouraged to relate to. To go from that to the book, with its expectation that you'll laugh at seeing him mess up, is... jarring.
** Similarly, Gorath - whose common sense, honour and nobility of spirit are defining traits - is much more [[MotiveDecay petty, hateful and vengeance-driven]], and is supposedly not ready to fully [[spoiler:Return to the eledhel]] because of his hatred for Delekhan, whom he must kill to [[spoiler:fully leave his moredhel life behind him. Yes, that's right - he has to kill to be able to join the Lawful Good pacifists in their Utopia - what the hell?]] Of course, that's what ''he'' thinks he needs to do, but the fact that the book ends without clarifying or bringing any closure to that issue doesn't exactly make for a satisfying arc.
