Elves speak Elven, and most also know Common and Sylvan.


Elves are cautious warriors and take time to analyze their opponents and the location of the fight if at all possible, maximizing their advantage by using ambushes, snipers, and camouflage. They prefer to fire from cover and retreat before they are found, repeating this maneuver until all of their enemies are dead. Their wizards often use sleep spells during combat because these won't affect other elves.

Aquatic Elf Traits (Ex): Aquatic elves benefit from a number of racial traits.

  • Gills: Aquatic elves can survive out of the water for 1 hour per point of Constitution.
  • Proficient with longsword, rapier, longbow, composite longbow, shortbow, and composite shortbow, regardless of character class.
  • Immunity to magic sleep spells and effects.
  • +2 racial bonus to Will saves against enchantment spells or effects.
  • Low-Light Vision: Aquatic elves can see four times as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of low illumination.
  • +2 racial bonus to Search, Spot, and Listen checks. An elf who merely passes within 5 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check as though actively looking for it.
