For Writers: Overused Fantasy Tropes

One Ring

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Freddy MacKay:

As for fantasy, what tropes have been used to death?

We’ve discussed variations on this one before, and it’s always one of my favorites.

So I’d like to also put a bit different spin on it – in addition to the tropes you are sick to death of, how do you as a writer keep your fantasy stories fresh and trope free? Or alternatively, how do you turn a trope on its head?
