Added DiffLines:

* NamedLikeMyName: No, he isn't actually [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puppet_Master_(Marvel_Comics) a Marvel Comics villain.]] There's only one "L" in his name.

Added DiffLines:

* DragonTropes: Not surprisingly, Masters' ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Dragons'', a whole book about dragons of all sorts for that game system, deals with most of these tropes. In particular, the main sample campaign setting in the book and some of the briefer example setting descriptions are built around the idea of TheDragonsComeBack.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainEthnic: Played with but just about averted in ''Kingdom of Champions'' (which has a large section on British superheroes) and ''The Sands of Time'' (which features a Middle Eastern Muslim superhero team). Both try to avoid at least the obvious stereotypes while making characters somewhat plausible for their cultural context.


Added DiffLines:

* FairyTale: Approached from very different angles in ''Faerie Stories'' for ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', ''GURPS Thaumatology: Alchemical Baroque'', and ''TabletopGame/TheSmallFolk''.
