Elf Subrace (Cursed Elf)[edit]


Maledictus Dryadalis (or Cursed Elf) is a long forgotten group of mages and mystics that were once a part of the High Elves. In ancient times, a thirst for power led them to make a bargain with a devil. They would be granted immense magical power, in exchange for their voices. As a result, they were exiled by the High Elves. But, they were unaware of the fact that their offspring got cursed to carry on the deal. Several generations later, it has manifested in their appearance. As a result, a Cursed Elf's hair and eyes are silver/platina colored from birth and are more potent to be discolored (usually connected to magic usage, a necromancer would find his hair turn black etc), with the latter also having a faint glow. Cursed Elves will often find themselves searching for ways to get rid of their curse, or teaching others about the dangers of bad bargains.

Ability Score Increase. You Intelligence score increases by 1.
Mute. As a part of your curse, your voice was taken away. You cannot communicate using your voice or in any way speak. However, you can still understand what others are saying if you know the language, and you may add your proficiency modifier to checks made to understand what someone is saying far away by reading their lips. As you never learned to form words, you can't learn to speak normally or through magical means, except for the wish spell. You may ignore the verbal part of spells if all other components are fulfilled.
Minor Telepathy. You know the message cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast the command spell once and need to finish a long rest before you can cast it again. When you reach 5th level, you can also cast the crown of madness spell once and need to finish a long rest before you can cast it again. Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
Cursed Elf Weapon Training. You have proficiency with the longsword, longbow and one other weapon of your choice.
