* GeniusBonus: Naming England Albion after it's oldest known name is quite clever. Midgard was the name of Earth in Myth/NorseMythology and considering Vikings originated in Scandinavia so it fits. However the game creators did commit CriticalResearchFailure by calling Ireland Hibernia and not Ériu or Éire.

Added DiffLines:

The MMO is still active as a free-to-play game.


** Levelscaling: it's also based onte player's level to an extent.



* IstanbulNotConstantinople: The Realms of Albion, Midgard, and Hibernia are Fantasy names of England, Scandinavia, and Ireland respectively .

** Additionally, ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' has three-faction PvP that is easily comparable in general setup to the Realm vs Realm combat. This is especially the case since some of that game's talent developed this game. The [[PlayerVersusEnvironment PvE]] experience is different, with standards in questing inspired by World of Warcraft.

Added DiffLines:

* PurpleIsPowerful: The game uses a [[ColorCodedForYourConvienience color system]] to indicate a monster's level relative to yours. The highest color is purple, which basically means the monster is way above your weight class and trying to kill it alone is likely suicide.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFairFolk: All over the place. There are tons of fairies and fairy-related creatures who are anything but benevolent.


Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGrayMorality: The fight between the three realms, as none of them are specifically good or evil.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: In all of the class/profession names, female members of the class have -ess added to their names: (i.e druidess, wizardess)

* InnocentlyInsensitive: A meta example: Earlier in the game there was a pooka (basically an evil black horse) named Spook. Presumably his name was meant to mean a ghost however someone pointed out that spook is also an obscure slur for a black person so the creature's name was changed.
