Physical description

Elves look like humans except for being a bit smaller and more slender. They are recognized by their pointed ears and their cat’s eyes. Elves are superior to humans in just about all aspects. They are everything the humans could dream of being, they are gracious, intelligent, tough, joyful, artistic and they live a long life. They have everything except physical strength.

Clothing, arms and armor

Elves wear clothes of very good quality, often in colors which blend with nature. They often secure their clothes by roping them around the lower parts of arms and legs as well as around their waist. The only armor they wear, except when in battle, is soft leather. In battle they may wear any sort of armor as long as it is not too heavy. The quality is superb, but they often discard armor in favour of greater maneuverability. They often prefer chain mail as it is easy to move in. Elves use weapons that are slender like their bodies and gracious like their movements. Swords and spears are common as melee weapons. Bows are the main missile weapon used.

Social structure

Elves live in faery forests where the nature is beautiful and the landscape inspires their creativity. They live in small organized groups or societies. Families are always lasting. Pregnancy is very rare, and they never get twins.

Occupations

There are many craftsmen such as fletchers, tanners, tailors and bow makers among elves. There are also many exceptional poets, singers and other musicians.
