similar to mortal men, differ in a number of important

fine features and unmarred skin. Elves are much more
resistant than men to the ravages of time and disease.
They are able to withstand a greater range of temperature
extremes, and their senses are extremely keen. Because

lack of discipline.
Tall and slender, those of pure elven
blood tend to have fair to tanned skin, sandy hair and
light eyes. Far more numerous than their cousins the
dark and half-elves,
the elves' varied talents include a dedication to scholarship,
unparalleled architectural and construction skills,
a love of forestry, fine metalworking and production
of unique glaesware and textiles.
Elves tend to be quite haughty and
consider themselves far superior to all other races,
especially humans. They prefer to spend time with their
own kind and often insult the "lesser" races,
rarely passing up a chance to remind non-elves of their
supremacy. Most elves have a proclivity towards magic
and many prefer to use it over muscle in battle. Historically,
