Elven Traits

Born Under the Silver Stars Char To those who look upon the Elves with clear eyes, there shimmers an unmistakable halo, like white light through a gossamer veil, like stars shining at night.
Essence of the Earth Dt Elves do not feel the effects of earthly cold and heat as do Men; they do not fall ill; they are ageless and will only pass on when the Earth ends. Elves do not have to take Health tests for illness, and they gain +1D to Health tests for fatigue and poison. Yet, they are not deathless: Elves may be killed by violence or may waste away due to Grief.
Fair and Statuesque Char Elves are fair and beautiful to all who look upon them. The Elven form inclines toward tall and slender, rounded by graceful curves.
First Born Dt Elves are made from the very fabric of nature – wind, air, wood and water. Thus, they know its secrets very well: They know how to preserve much of her power – even when she is taken and shaped into something new. It is this intimate knowledge that allows the Elves to weave their songs. Their unadulterated essence grants them insight into their world unmached by the races of Men, Dwarves and Orcs. Due to this, Elves’ Perception maximum is 9 rather than 8.
Grief Dt Years of emotion and strife take their toll, and eventually all Elves begin to feel Grief tug at their hearts. See the Elven Grief section for the mechanics of this trait.
Keen Sight Dt Like an eagle, Elves may see a great distance with perfect clarity. Add +1D to all Perception-based (or Observation-based) field maneuvers for Range and cover or any Perception test involving seeing long distances. Elves also may see in starlight as if it were day. They suffer no obstacle penalties for dim light. Smoke and haze still bar their vision – normal penalties apply. In complete darkness Elves suffer +4 Ob like Men or Dwarves.
