* GenreSavvy: ''Forges Of War'' shows that scholars in the setting are at least ''partially'' aware of Divine Magic's reliance on ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve, and attempts were made during the last war to train clerics devoted to national ideals rather than religion to function as healers and replaces the services of House Jorasco. It didn't work.
* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: The Dreaming Dark does this to most citizens of Rierdra.
* GermanicDepressives: Karrnath
* GiantEnemyCrab: The carcass crab and the siege crab.

* GlobalAirship: Elemental airships.
* GodEmperor: The Lord of Blades.
* GodOfEvil: The Dark Six is a pantheon of these. Then there are the rakshasa Rajahs...
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Some react like this when learning of Queen Aurala of Aundair's plans.

* {{Golem}}: The warforged race.
* {{Gonk}}/ButterFace: Female Shifters originally looked like [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/eb_gallery/82092.jpg this]].
** ProgressivelyPrettier: Fortunately, the Razorclaws, at least were later drawn like [[http://images.wikia.com/forgottenrealms/images/c/ca/4e_shifters.jpg the woman in the upper left]]. Meanwhile, the males/Longtooths also got a boost when they looked like Creator/HughJackman if he was the WolfMan.
*** A more Beast Woman-like protrayal of Shifters is seen [[http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/bestselling-sci-fi-fantasy-2007/1911-1.jpg here]], and is probably made from around the point where they started becoming a fair bit more popular.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Eberron naturally plays with this.

** Breland may come off as a Fantasy Counterpart America with some traits of {{Eagleland}} to some, with its patriotic citizens being characterized as loud and boorish when travelling, having a love of democracy and strong belief in fundamental legal rights, and the presence of a [[BenjaminFranklin Poor Richard]] analogue called Beggar Dane as well as having Sharn (the fantasy New York) and a general acceptance of most races and classes.

'''[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eberron-logo_4999.jpg]]{{Eberron}}''' is a setting for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' released in 2004. It's a DungeonPunk setting influenced by pulp serials, [[AdventurerArchaeologist Indiana Jones]] and FilmNoir rather than the more usual HighFantasy. It averts or subverts many tropes common to D&D worlds, such as AlwaysChaoticEvil and ColorCodedForYourConvenience.

** However, Keith Baker states in the appendices of ''The City of Towers that most religions are aware of how Dollurrh works and that they believe that their concepts of an afterlife "kick in" after the soul has faded from the plane, making it more like a variation of Purgatory or an AfterlifeAntechamber.

Some sects of the Sovereign Host also believe that their deities will purify Dollurrh into a golden realm one day.

* MadeOfIron: Warforged. Literally. They can have plating upgrades at first level that cause them to be made of mithril or adamantine. Both are much stronger than normal iron.

* MadeOfIron: Warforged. Literally.Literally (though they ''can'' mod themselves to remove the plating, as it can interfere with spellcasting and keeps them from wearing armour or magic robes). They can have plating upgrades at first level that cause them to be made of mithril or adamantine. Both are much stronger than normal iron.

*** This (American) troper thinks of Breland as a parallel for modern Britain (rather than medieval England, as is common in fantasy), not America. Breland is, after all, a Constitutional Monarchy with a name that sounds suspiciously like "Britain". And if there's one country that rivals America in terms of democracy, the rule of law, ethnic diversity, and loud, boorish tourists...
