* The ''Literature/AgeOfBloodChronicles'' does away with Medieval stasis, taking place in a renaissance time period, it goes past MedievalEuropeanFantasy to include [[FantasyCounterPartCulture Fantasy Counterpart Cultures]] of such places as Africa, Tsarist Russia, and the Koreas, replaces the StandardRoyalCourt with a DeadlyDecadentCourt, and deconstructs most of the race tropes. It also has people who act realistically for their time period and most monsters are fairly mundane.

''TheToughGuideToFantasyland'' by Creator/DianaWynneJones will tell you pretty much everything you would like to know about the place (minus a few [[DeadHorseTrope dead horses]] and [[DeadUnicornTrope unicorns]]). If you can get your hands on a copy, Barbara Ninde Byfield's 1967 guide ''The Glass Harmonica'' (reprinted in 1973 and 1994 as ''Literature/TheBookOfWeird'') is informative and funny. See also AirportNovel. For the antithesis of StandardFantasySetting-style fantasy see UrbanFantasy, MagicalRealism and MundaneFantastic.

*** Similarly, technology is [[SchizoTech often all over the place]], with Iron, Bronze, and Stone-age weapons existing alongside actual Middle Age- and early Renaissance-era weapons. Even if there are no guns, for example, you will often easily find rapiers, light blades that were first used well after the beginning of gunpowder.
