Wood Elf

Maintain close ties with nature and distrust society.

Wood elves are well known for their love of song, dance and revelry. However, when threatened, they are not shy about defending their forest home. They protect their forests and kin alike with a single minded passion. Wood elves are a long lived race and this tends to make them seem aloof and uncaring to those with shorter lives. However, when one manages to befriend a wood elf, they will have a friend for life...although the same applies to their enemies. The typical wood elf is tall and lithe, seemingly weak but graceful nevertheless. Although not gifted with high intelligence they still retain the innate magic abilities of all elves, being able to resist sleep spells and detect all things magical in the world.. Wood elves, like most other elves, possess a mysterious allure, men and women alike. They stand roughly five feet tall, though the men are usually slightly taller. They often dress in greens and browns, so as to blend in with their environment. Many wood elves are trained from birth in tracking and forestry, making them ideal rangers and druids.
