Alfheim elves racial traits

by argentmantle

The Mystaran elf is a homogenisation of the Elf and Eladrin, especially visible in the Skill Bonus section. We chatted about separating the two again, and creating Mystaran Eladrin and Mystaran Elves, but we came to no real useable information from it.

Half my group loves the separation of the two, half hate it. We decided here in round 2 (i.e. the first real session) to use a recombined version, but I am including the other two versions as well. The removal of Fey Step/Elven Accuracy left a big hole even with Elven Resistance. This came around to the idea of adding the Dabbler ability.

This was cobbled together after a lot of chatting...

I find in looking at them, that it really boils down to player choice, to be more Wisdom or more Intelligence oriented. No big difference besides Arcana/Nature, weapon proficiencies, and Int vs Wis... thoughts???
