* AllThereInTheManual: Side material and Q&A sessions with the DM reveals a wealth of information not seen in the campaigns themselves. (See WordOfGod below.)
* TheAlliance: The Alamo Empire (despite its name) and the Veriol Alliance both qualify, though the Alamo Empire has a few [[TheEmpire empire-y tendencies]] in its desires for galactic unity.

* BeachEpisode: While one group in Mioura was finding dead bodies everywhere and discovering the depth of the corruption in Dasedrak/Dokani Castle, the other group was wandering around aimlessly in the sewers and doing jazz hands while jumping through a time portal.
** Nicta's plot had a "downtime" episode immediately before a hiatus from the roleplay to set itself up for the next session's WhamEpisode (see below).



* ConLang: Almost too many to count, and they sometimes appear untranslated in dialogue if none of the party members can speak the language.

-->"I did not trick you," [Alvarus] says. "I told you to remember you would die. And you did. And I also said your unfinished business would be complete, should you die." He gestures to Isaak with his wing. "He is dead, just like you."

* OneSteveLimit: Averted everywhere. Not only did the player characters Azwell and Ezwell (though the latter was a nickname) have very similar names due to coming from the same area, but Nicta had two characters with the first name Fiore (a shopkeeper's younger sister and Boss Vacaddi), Dralvarus had two characters called Aluvardi in some manner (a doeron Mook's given name and an alternate name for Alvarus the Netherlord), Derrin is a very common name for residents of the Alamo Empire (two emperors and one fairly important NPC both had the first name Derrin), etc...
** Caused some spelling confusion with the slightly similar-looking Thorn and Throntuk.

* PutOnABus: Basically every player character that featured in Miora other than Cameo, Liddum, and Ddremmu. Lather, rinse, and repeat for Dralvarus and Kes Joshawk, where Rokordi, Liddum, and Ezwell were missing from the lineup, replaced by their [[TheBusCameBack Mioura counterparts]] or just missing for no explained reason other than their player(s) couldn't participate.
** [[TheBusCameBack The bus came back]] for Ezwell, though.
** Eranni (a cainos guard from Fort Darackei) was dangerously close to this, but [[TheBusCameBack the bus also came back]] for him at the very end of the campaign.
*** The only characters truly stuck on the bus right now are Bahku, Liddum, Meerkava, and Rokordi.

* RedShirt: Being referred to as an NPC during Mioura was basically a death sentence, but none suffered from this more than Thorn. He didn't just die once, he died ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill three times]]''.

* ScheduleSlip: Most of the game's players are in wildly different timezones and on different schedules, leading to inevitably hasty rescheduling and praying that nothing else comes up. Sessions can end up pushed back almost a full week in ''normal'' cases of schedule conflicts.
* ShipTease: Cameo and Ddremmu during Mioura. Hard.
** Astruc and Aricrauer are picking up where those two left off.
*** The teasing with Astruc and Aricrauer may have reached critical mass with Astruc taming a juvenile wolf and referring to him and Aricrauer as said wolf's parents.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Throntuk's name was misspelled several times as "Thorntuk" due to how important Thorn was in the same plot. The DM admitted that them having such similar names was a mistake.

* WhamLine: "Drop the bombs in one hour" from Cabaria, demonstrating the Alamo Empire's attitude towards traitors. In the same session, "And then there is silence" after the bombs fell on Rhyser City, showing that the results of the group's failure to stop the bombs were truly as ghastly as Ddremmu feared.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Due to the nature of the game, there are numerous other outcomes that could have happened but didn't, such as another ending to Nicta where Strisci and Boss Vacaddi reconcile and go their separate ways.
* WordOfGod: The DM will gladly answer almost any questions about the campaigns, provided they won't spoil a future twist.
* YouAllMeetInAnInn: Not quite, but once the entire party (sans Bahku) was properly introduced to the game, this is how Cameo and Ddremmu were forced into the group.

Added DiffLines:

* AndManGrewProud: The Godbomb is said to have happened because the mortals tried to surpass and kill the gods.


*** Nicta: The Madrante Prison deals in the trafficking of ''people''. And Ezwell almost ended up in it. Strisci's death also served as an unplanned WhamEpisode.
**** Cabaria: The reveal of the godslaying weapons and that Aricrauer has one, Rhyser City being bombed.
