Thoughts on clichés in Fantasy


Hello, so I was just wondering what you guys thought about clichés in fantasy interactive fiction. For example, is there one pet peeve that really gets under your skin, or perhaps something you really enjoy and want to see more of in fantasy/adventure/romance books? I’m asking due to the increasing number of fantasy W.I.Ps popping up, and my own ambition to one day write an interactive fantasy choice game.

My pet peeve -which is something I really struggle with- is rereading the same supernatural story trope used til it becomes dull. Sometimes when writing it feels like everything’s already been written ya know… Well, I digress. What do you think?
