Elf

Elf girl by MagnaLeon

Many elves embark on adventures out of a desire to explore the world, leaving their secluded realms to reclaim forgotten elven magic or search out lost kingdoms established millennia ago by their ancestors. This need to see a wider world is accepted by their societies as a natural part of becoming mature and experienced individuals. Such elves are expected to return in some few decades and take up lives in their homelands once more, enriched both in treasure and in worldview.

  1. I’ve noticed that almost every race offers the player a chance to reach +4 in any trait, except intelligence. At the same time, Elves and Halflings both allow for a +4 in Dexterity. Wouldn’t it make more sense for Elves, children of magic, to be gifted with extra magical potential?
