- Fridge Brilliance: Why is it called the Aeon War?"That is not dead which can eternal lieAnd with strange aeons even death may die"
- Sliding Scale of Social Satisfaction: Life in the Arcologies is actually quite good, despite the war. The Death Shadows want to turn them into a Dystopia.
- Squick: There is an awful lot of references to rape (anything from the Old Ones having "rape camps" up to a gadget on one of the equipment sections (used by the bad guys, mind) that steals energy for magical artifact charging out of people via being, essentially, a rape machine). It got so bad that one of the explicitly mentioned changes done for the game's Second Edition is that it will cut down on these references.
- Also, the NEG's sexual mores are given an uncomfortable, juvenile amount of attention. This results in fluff telling readers that people in the NEG tend to start having sex at around twelve or so.
