Urban Elf Subrace[edit]



"And by then I had it up ta my ears wit aw 'is complainin' so I just shot 'im and left." Tom said, shrugging not so apologetically

Maurice looked at him in disbelief.

"You shot the Duke's son?"
"In broad daylight?"

Maurice exploded.

"Are you mental?!"
"Well, 'e 'ad it comin'."
"Bloody hell." Maurice groaned.

"I though you elves were suppose to be sophisticated!"

Urban Elves are elves who have lived a large portion or even their whole lives in a bustling city. If a Wood Elf can show you which tree in the forest is the oldest, where the best hunting areas are, and how to disappear into the trees, an Urban Elf can tell you which bars serve the best drink, which one of the cities beggars are part of the local thieves guild, and then disappear down an alley with your wallet, hat and trousers when you turn your head for one second to catch a breath. They are a lot more friendly and talkative than their other kin, however this does not mean they are any less observant or calculating. Many have been disarmed by a Urban Elf's jovial demeanor and come out a few gold poorer as result.

Years of living in the city means Urban Elves are not as "pure" as other elves, something they take a great deal of pride in. It is not uncommon for a Urban Elf to start up a conversation with a Dwarf with the line "Oh, I'm part Dwarf too on my mother's side. Great Aunt Wilma was always an adventurous one."

As such Urban Elves are a lot more varied than other Elves with skin from pale to bronzed and hair that ranges from dirty blond, to jet black, depending on their lineage.
