* TheChosenOne: Subverted by Tungdil. He is put forward as a candidate for the fourthling throne, not because he has any chance of convincing the council to vote for him, and in fact no-one can even prove he is a fourthling. He is being used by the fourthling king to gain time to talk Gandogar out of a war with the elves, since both candidates have to be present at the election. [[spoiler: Later played straight, when he turns out to be the one destined to wield Keenfire.]]

* FinalSolution: the stated goal of the Avatars, and the ''eoil'' who drives them, in the second volume. She (the eoil) succeeds in slaughtering every single Dark Elf and Orc in Girdlegard - even those who are only half-alfar/orc. The new and disputed high king of the Dwarfs doesn't help much, when he launches his genocide against the Elves in volume three.

* PlanetOfHats: Each dwarven kingdom has one of the traditionally dwarven arts as it's hat: Stoneworking, metalworking, gem-cutting etc.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Tungdil, having been raised by scholar mages, finds himself occasionally doing this though he tries hard to tailor his language level appropriate for the circumstances. Rodario, on the other hand, deliberalty turns this trope [[UpToEleven up several notches]], because he's an actor and playwright and likes to sound smarter than everyone around him.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Orcs, and alfar. Thirdlings as well [[spoiler: with one ''VERY'' notable exception]].
** [[spoiler: Amazingly subverted by the undead raised by the Perished Land. Some of them are still firmly on the side of good, although they are rare -- it takes monumental effort to fight off TheCorruption once the Perished Land comes to claim your body and soul]].

* AnimateDead: The PerishedLand can raise any corpses upon it (unless their heads are chopped off, that is), thanks to it being TheCorruption to the very lands it taints. [[spoiler: Interestingly, some of these undead are able to retain their personalities, although they're still consumed by bloodlust to varying degrees]].

* ElvesVersusDwarves: Rather one-sided. The dwarves hate the elves for supposedly annhialating the fifthling kingdom years before the main storyline. There are even many who want to go to war with the elves, despite overwhelming evidence that the elves played no part in the genocide. The FantasticRacism at hand is made even stupider with the realization that the elves are rapidly going extinct due to their AlwaysChaoticEvil cousins, the alfs, and that the elves are on the same side of the war against the Perished Land as the dwarves.
