High Elf

High elves are separated into two distinct bloodlines: sun elves and moon elves.

 

Sun elves are haughty and reclusive, believing themselves to be superior to all others. They have bronze skin and hair of copper, black, or golden blonde. Their eyes are golden, silver, or black.

Moon elves are more common, friendlier, and adventurous. They have pale, alabaster skin sometimes tinged with blue. They often have hair of silver-white, black, or blue, but various shades of blonde, brown, and red are not uncommon. Their eyes are blue or green and flecked with gold.

Alternative Origins

You can use this race as a base to play a Snow Elf.

Darkvision

You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions, negating the Perception and to-hit penalties present at nighttime and in the dark areas of the world.

Fey Ancestry

You are immune to magical sleep effects.

Keen Senses

Elves are highly attuned to their surroundings. You have proficiency in Perception.

Natural Magic (Arcane)

High elves have a keen mind and a mastery of at least the basics of magic. You may pick between one of the three following cantrips: Fire Bolt, Frostbite or Shocking Grasp.

Trance

Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that non-elves do from 8 hours of sleep (a long rest).

Trancing is an intrinsic part of the elven experience, for elves peer back into their past memories to dissect them and learn from them. These memories extend back a century, and it is for this reason why elves are not considered adults until they've aged 100 years, for their trance will include memories of their past elven life within that span.
