Added DiffLines:

* SuicidalOverconfidence: The hardened prisoners in Warlord Krix's dungeon were apparently unaware that ''this'' gold noble is a muscle mountain twice their size. Several attempt to grab him through the bars as they would an unfortunate guard, but Krix grabs the offending arms instead and ''rips them off'', letting those prisoners bleed to death.

Added DiffLines:

* GroinAttack: Lord Sayanos knees Moss in the groin before threatening him into compliance. He tries again in their next encounter, but this time Moss was [[BallsOfSteel expecting it]].


Added DiffLines:

* InstantlyProvenWrong:
-->'''Lord Sayanos:''' Moss... you don't learn, do you? ''(tries to knee him in the crotch again, only to impale his knee on Moss's dagger)''


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Stone Lord Sayanos of Pocktown has been a noble for a measly 60 days and thinks he can throw his weight around threatening people's families left and right. This gets him killed.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadlyEuphemism:
-->'''Cheese:''' want to come poach with me?\\
'''Moss:''' What? Poach?\\
'''Cheese:''' A soft way of saying cold blooded murder.

Added DiffLines:

* DesecratingTheDead: When Fen joins the Dragon Army, he's sent to meet his unit in catacombs where a seditious gang is desecrating the tombs, with the explicit goal that the restless souls may spook the civilian population. [[spoiler:Fen notices the dead sometimes fight back, spilled ashes rising to choke the perpetrator.]]


* EliteArmy: Grand Knight Zall's force in the Mausoleum campaign consists entirely of knights, without any of the cannon-fodder "pawns". This also seems to be, more generally, the role of the Assassin's Branch.

* ThemeNaming: Many inhabitants of Erja Nokol (as well as [[https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/src/150446387044.png places]]) are named after food: Cheese, Cabbage, Tomato, [[spoiler:Garlic Soup, Death Carrot]]...

Added DiffLines:

* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler:Nightmare]] Lily. First she finds herself in a dark, cold underground place; then she notices Fen is nearby, but when she meets him, he doesn't answer her and calls her illusory, before asking her probing questions in front of a complete stranger. Even after proving her identity, she realizes she can't be real. Then a monster comes up. Such an ordeal could have broken a lesser mind, but she pulls through completely chill, never losing her calm.
-->'''Fen:''' Lily ''is'' calm, but she never struck be as being easily flappable. She was never put in a situation like this, either.

Added DiffLines:

* DeepBreathRevealsTension: When Fen and Aira question Sir Zall's identity in the face of orders that contradict his previous ones (also they've never seen him angry before), Zall "lets out some noise that I'm not sure is a sigh, a deep breath, or a hiss" as he collects himself before amending his orders to comply with their paranoia.

Added DiffLines:

* GotVolunteered: It's mentioned early in the Mausoleum campaign that if there aren't enough volunteers for operations to clear an anomaly, lots will be drawn... and only actual volunteers are eligible for death benefits.

Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryMaverick: It appears the rest of the army is quite less disciplined than Fen's squad, mugh to Sir Zall's chagrin.
-->'''Sir Zall:''' [I split the troops among regulars and specialists, and as member of Orjin's squad, you're a specialist]
-->'''Fen:''' What's our specialty?
-->'''Sir Zall:''' Remember that when I sent Sir Orjin into the anomaly, it wasn't for the group's strength, but for the group's discipline. I'm embarrassed to say that 'following orders and objectives' counts as a specialty around here.


Added DiffLines:

* PredatoryBusiness: Under Sir Zall's order, Holly makes widescale use of corporate spying (and tax evasion) to prop up her new-and-improved inn as the #1 business atop the mausoleum. That way the go-to inn in the place is crawling with spies mostly on Zall's payroll, giving him some insight on threats from behind his lines.


* ConservationOfNinjutsu: The big army present at the mausoleum proves too vulnerable to BavarianFireDrill infiltrations because you can't know everyone in it, so Sir Zall downsizes it to a small unit of hand-picked elite soldiers (which is what he wanted in the first place, but he had to contend with other commanders... this time he throws his weight around and kicks them out of ''his'' campaign).



* FingerInTheMail: A piece of Firzel's ear is sent to Holly's bar. Hardly the smartest move in a setting where blood wizards exist.
