Summary::An elf which is actually usable, and delivers us from the intense pain of a thousand elven breeds. Elves are very strange creatures. Their appearence and abilities vary deeply between individuals. Elves are, in fact, magical creatures created during the gods-know-when era, for gods-know-why. Some elves take pleasure in giving their particular breed a special name (and since the race varies deeply in appearence and ability there are actually a shit-ton of elven "breeds"). Some call themselves "wood elves" because they live in the woods, others "high elves" because they are pricks.

Let's not even talk about the slime elves.

Satirical text and failed humor aside, elves are of any form, color and are incredibly different from each other. This makes them pretty awesome as a race in theory. Too bad some tend to act like pricks, have exiled those corrupted by the evil of Lolth, who's skin has darkened to the blackest of black, below the earth or simply fight between each other for trivial reasons. The only common traits between elves' appearance is their humanoid form, some elves can be red-skinned while others may have bright purple hair. When a player is creating an elf, he can really unleash his creativity.

Sample Elven "Breed" Edit

Fire Elf Edit

Fire elves are a possible elven mutation; they have green skin, ash-like hair and blaze-orange eyes. They earned the nickname of fire elves because of their physical traits and their ability to resist incredibly hot and cold environments.

Note Edit

Flavorful ability should be checked, effects like sanctuary or true strike should be disallowed. Others like shield and mage armor should merely be checked.
