An elf (pl. elves) is a sapient creature. This race was formed when the game world's equivalent of Adam and Eve made love before committing the original sin.

  • Height: like humans.
  • Build: slight.
  • Ears: pointy.
  • Skin: light. Unlike human skin, which adapts to damage by tanning, elven skin adapts by increasing reflectance.
  • Growth: much slower than humans.
  • Aging: at least an order of magnitude slower than humans.
  • Metabolism: faster to support a more demanding immune system.
  • Common cause of death: trauma or malnutrition, almost never aging. The elven lifespan is thought to be a thousand years.
  • Movement: faster than humans.
  • Magic vs. tech: Close alliance with nature. Perhaps compare real-world druidry and American "Indian" practices.
  • Superiority complex: they tend to think they're better than other races.
  • Pranks: commonly pulled on other races, especially in retaliation for polluting the environment.
