Elf 5e: The magical people of the otherworldly grace are called as Elf Race. They are not the entire part and should be living somewhere in the world. They mostly live in the commonplaces of breeze waft with gentle fragrances, soft music that touches through the air, faerie light that glitters silvery spires, in middle of an ancient forest, and ethereal beauty. Elves love the good things around the world, poetry & music, artistry & air, and magic & nature.
we’re gonna be talking about elves so you can tell that one player why he can’t play Legolas let’s start talking about race finally it’s talking about the race of elves the public the race of elves is one of those player character races.
that I personally love to hate even though I do find myself playing plenty of elves it’s true why do you like playing else then let’s start there why do you like what do you like about elves I like elves.
because in theory there’s sort of these graceful arcane they suggest a certain gravity of character or era or nobility or majesty that if I want to impart that on a character I will now I have some elven characters.
I play out of legacy I do have characters that I then I remade because I like the concept or like like thinking that you know this character is adventured this entire time I just keep revisiting them at different points in their career dropping back every century or so right and so in that respect elves being long-lived allow me to do that I can send some apprehension so other than the other than their starting height requirements how do L fall short in your opinion it’s just thought that they’re both not talking enough right
different kinds of elves are what they are and have the abilities that they have because they traveled a certain distance toward the light of heaven and some of them made the journey across the sea and they dwelt there for a while and then there was the whole thing with the jewels the silmarils and then the civil war that followed that and Melkor and Sauron, of course, all that elves are tied up in that setting so much and so intimately at 2:00 just pluck them as a concept out of middle-earth and drop them into Greyhawk drop them into Forgotten Realms drop them over here.
even if it’s really blowing dust a mom put another jacket on it no it’s their token nuts when you take them out of the context of middle-earth they lose something else in the earth or they are tragic they have a kind of sadness to them. and grief is a big part of being an elf right they live forever they have to deal with all of the crap that Melkor and Sauron and every all the other forces of darkness has polluted middle-earth with that weighs heavily on them that’s why tokens elves work and it’s difficult to replicate that, yeah and it’s difficult for just diems who are just trying to come up with a thing and they’re just trying to do their campaign and they’re not linguistic scholars with a huge background in history and mythology and the time and ability to write and craft

The most living ancestors named the Eladrin are commonly referred to as Elves. Tel-quessir who is the long-living race of Elves is found in most places of wilderness, shrublands, and forests.
The Elves have less frequency when compared to Eladrin which has strong organized nations and adapt to the nomadic lifestyle. Seldarine is the favorite god worshipped by all the Elves and also they are not good in nature.
We would like to inform you that by default, Elves are in medium weight and taller when compared to other races. Mostly the true elves will be an athletic race and naturally slender. Some of the Elves will have a range of human complexions like Wild Elves will be in darker pigmentation and Wood Elves will be in pale or coppery skinned.

Eyes of Elves are commonly an emerald green, hazel, or brown in color. Elves are similar to Eladrin (cousins) and look like pointed ears, handsome, beautiful, and fair. Their hair, eyelashes, eyebrows are not quite common with other races.
Like humans, Elves also mature at the same rate. Until the age of 110, they are not considered to be adolescence. Elves are close to their lifespan and unlike humans, they obviously change their hair coloring to be darkening or graying. Most of the Elves are very healthy and have a full life until the age of death. By default, they live for two to nine centuries.
