Tropes Appearing in Dig Site

Add them as you see them.

  • Cosmic Horror Story: Subverted — it seemed that way, but the "eldritch" entity in question was "just" an ancient and powerful lich.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: K-12Z-2, when speaking with Crescent Raptor, calls his prized crossbow "a formidable weapon in its context", which briefly causes Crescent Raptor some distress as he wonders what frame of reference such a politely dismissive comment must come from.
  • For Science!: Moonlit Blossom, who is introduced by asking to dissect someone.
  • Moral Dissonance: A couple different cases. Crescent Raptor tends to evoke this giving his Cultural Posturing and anti-magic bent. al-Faddil mentions that people the age of "the kids" would already be eligible to enlist where he's from.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Nice work releasing the Lich, Crescent Raptor.
