Fantasy, at this point, is almost tragically boring.
That seems like a contradiction in terms. A fantasy setting is supposed to be fantastic by its very definition; you should be surrounded by neat and astonishing things at every term, immersed in a rich and baffling setting where magic is a valid explanation for almost everything. Unfortunately, we’ve seen so many versions of the same old fantasy setting that it’s become boring. It’s another round of the same elements with slightly different names, and while you can give them floppy ears and call them Asurans, they’re still just gnomes with better public relations.
So let’s stick a fork in it and say we’re done… or maybe not. There’s some fantasy out there that could be collected into an interesting state, I think, something a bit further afield of the bog-standard elves and humans and dwarves dealing with dragons and whatever else. So let’s mash this stuff up in a blender and see if we can’t come up with some fantastic fantasy again.
