Obviously, there will be spoilers galore on this page.

General Tropes

  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder - Keolah. The character as well as the actual author, in some cases.
  • A Wizard Did It - Some of the more odd and convenient things on Lezaria? Sardill did it.
  • Old Shame - I was a teenager when I wrote the original stories, it's to be expected that they sucked.
  • Continuity Reboot - Summer 2009.

    Setting Tropes

  • Lego Genetics - Harmony did it.
  • Magic A Is Magic A - The magic system can get complex.
  • Medieval Stasis - Averted. Nine thousand years ago, Lezaria was in the stone age. In the present day, technology has advanced to fairly high levels in places. Names change, places change, political boundaries shift.
  • Our Dwarves Are All The Same - But they live on islands!
  • Our Elves Are Better - Although most of them for the a fair stretch of Lezaria's history have no longer lifespans than humans.
  • Our Vampires Are Different - Vulnerable to sunlight, stakes immobilize them.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different - Silver causes pain, can change forms at will.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage - Originally, only Amanda can change the mass of beings, while Harmony cannot. Both wind up getting around their limitations, and other shapeshifters never appeared to have a problem with it.

    Character Tropes

  • Donna - The Chick, The Medic, Actual Pacifist
  • Harmony - Voluntary Shapeshifting
  • Helkhar - The Big Guy
  • Jack - Jack Attack
  • Rachel - The Smart Guy
  • Sardill - Evil Albino, Bald Of Evil
  • Telkarnith - The Hero
  • Winder - The Lancer
  • Vistri - Last Of His Kind, Extra Eyes

    Plot Tropes

  • Arranged Marriage - A long tradition in the elvish houses of "good birth", as seen in Love and Marriage
  • Betty and Veronica - Telkarnith caught between Donna and Rachel.
  • Bring News Back - Telkarnith's ride in Wolf Friend.
  • Dead Little Sister - Telkarnith acquires a literal one in The Fevered Winter, but he doesn't really angst over it.
  • I See Dead People - Shamans learn how to do this, as demonstrated in The Fevered Winter and Wolf Friend.
  • Raised By Wolves - Helkhar's more of a wolf raised by humans, but his attempt at making sense of social conventions and behaviors in Silver Spoon and Predators certainly applies.
  • Xanatos Roulette - Sardill and his convoluted plots. Naturally most everything that happened in the history of Lezaria somehow tied back to Sardill, and he planned for it all along. Really.
