Song Elves[edit]

Song Elves are strongly tied with music, and can soothe people with their singing.


Song Elves tend to be kind and happy, and very mischievous. They take enjoyment in playing practical jokes, goofing off, and flirting with those they have no business flirting with.

Physical Description[edit]

Song Elves tend to be short, with most standing around 5'2" and topping off at 5'4". They tend to be slight and slim, with ears a little longer and more pointed than most elves. Their eyes come in a variety of colors from brown to violet, and hair varying in shades of brown, with reddish, blackish, and yellowish hues. They typically weigh around 100 lbs. with males and females being of approximately equal stand.


Song Elves, in essence, are just large gnomes. They're fun, funny, and fun-loving. Therefore, they tend to get along nicely with most other civilized surface races.


Most Song Elves are Chaotic Good - well-meaning, but by no means play by the rules. However, entire societies of Song Elves are often Neutral Good, as while they do not demand law and order, they do recognize the drawbacks of anarchy.


Song Elves are a scattered race, and can be found anywhere a song can be written. Natural travelers, these elves don't remain in one place very long, and often set off to explore new realms, tell stories, and spread good cheer.


Most Song Elves follow the path of Fharlaghn, though they do hold Corellon in high regard.


Song Elves speak the Elven tongue, though they do tend to mix in vocabulary of other languages as well, as long as it sounds nice.


Song Elves follow the naming conventions of High Elves, though the names tend to be more lyric-focused.
