* NonMammalMammaries: Justified by [[WordOfGod the fact that]] [[spoiler: all sentient races, including dragons, are the descendants of especially powerful Ffolk/humans which [[AscendToAHigherPlane ascended to a higher plane of existence]] and thus every race: hinoitaur, malana, ranida, rik, etc are essentially mammals despite appearing reptilian and even being mostly egg-layers. The only exception to this are the Greenwater Serpents which were created by the Dragons, and which are the only race that cannot interbreed with the others.]] This can now be considered AllInTheManual since it has migrated from my private files to this webpage.

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Played both straight and subverted as most of the races of the Greenwater seem partially reptilian. Some of these are possibly averted given the [[AllThereInTheManual statement in the spoiler]] under NonMammalMammaries above.
** subverted: The females of the hinoitaur race are naga-like snake women (the males are talon-footed/winged humanoids with feathers rather than hair) and yet the race is respected as wise and valiant.
** played straight: The Ranida of the Ratadoni nation are regarded as dragon-worshiping fanatics prone to tyranny, though Runya doesn't assume they're enemies until such time as she realizes they're from Ratadoni.
** played straight: Likewise, the lamta are shown as monkeyish, lizard people with a barbaric sort of frenzied violence.
** subverted: the Malana (called "Feyrik" by the Ffolk) are visibly scaled as well, though from a short distance they can be mistaken for darkskinned humans
** subverted: Nest Serpents, in addition to being the primary means of defending the eggs of the various reptilian sentient races, are described as being rather affectionate pets.
** played oh so horribly straight: [[NightmareFuel Mal Vipers]], which were bred to drive people insane enough to destroy each other and especially their own young.

''Note from the Author: I tend to use these pages as sounding boards for ideas as well as a form of self-promotion. For my original fictions, I do most of my troping on my own files offline, because I don't want to spoil anything...as I am want to do when ranting about my stories. However, currently most of the entries were done by me as part of a way of figuring out how to summarize the setting. From here on out, however, this page will be only occasionally updated by me specifically. (Though I might run a promotion that involves troping my stuff.)''
