* Deconstruction: The classic D&D good alignments are cheerfully sebverted here and most of the evil ones, aside from the AlwaysChaoticEvil types, as well. Fits the setting, considering that it's a fantasy equivalent of the modern era up to the first two decades of the 20th century.

* MadeOfPhlebotinum: ''{{Eberron}}'''s {{Dungeon Punk}} world comes to mind as an especially obvious example of this trope. Without that magical-flavored {{Phlebotinum}}, everything in that world would fall apart ''hard''.

'''[[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.

** For example, [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] are much more spiritual in Eberron- Their druidic sect is responsible for keeping the [[EldritchAbomination Daelkyr]] [[SealedEvilInACan sealed in their can]], if you will.

* {{Badass}}: The Valenar Elves. Elves of the "Sociopathic Klingon Riders of Rohan Vietcong Vikings with Scimitars" variety.
** The dinosaur-riding halflings, who held their own in war against Karrnathi undead armies and the aforementioned Valenar Elves. At the same time. We are FAR from the Tolkien-esque {{Hobbits}} here.

** An article in ''Dragon Magazine'' had statistics for one of the [[SealedEvilInACan rakshasa rajahs]], the fiends the Lords of Dust hope to free (or siphon power from). In a campaign setting where level 10 is considered masterful and level 15+ legendary, the rajahs ''[[AGodAmI are level 60.]]'' Make note that 20 is the traditional level cap of the system, and though supplemental rules do allow for and support higher levels, these officially only go up to level 40 for [=PCs=]. This puts them literally on par with gods who ''rarely'' have more than 60 levels, and only a few are even that high.

* TheNothingAfterDeath: Dollurh.

to:

* TheNothingAfterDeath: Dollurh. It's a realm where everything fades to gray and the only beings other than the souls of the dead are their keepers. It's ''the'' afterlife, known to many people on Eberron as the only place that the souls of the dead go where they slowly fade into oblivion. The Sovereign Host is the only religion that accepts it as just what is, choosing to emphasize having a good life. Every other religion tries to attract new followers by promising some form of escape, be it union with a transcendent force or simply cheating with undeath.



* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness

to:

* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVaguenessTheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: Numerous. The Trust of Zilargo is a small-scale one, while the Aurum supposedly has power over the economy of a whole continent. The Lords of Dust take it up a step further as the secret rakshasa masters of the world, matched by the Chamber who fancy themselves the secret ''dragon'' masters of the world. The Dreaming Dark cross this with StateSec in Riedra, officially serving the Inspired Lords but actually being the quori's more direct agents in the world.

Added DiffLines:

** The novels seem to really like playing with this:
*** ''Blade of the Flame'' has a Half-Orc/Elven relationship.
*** ''The Draconic Prophecies'' has a [[spoiler: Warforged-Human relationship]]. Yes, it's treated as just as taboo as you would expect. She's also a Cannith artificer, isn't that a form of incest?
*** The kicker has to be ''The Thorn of Breland'' though, with a [[spoiler: rakshasha]] that's been in (mostly unrequited) love with a [[spoiler: dragon]] ever since the Age of Demons.
