Wood Elf

Attuned to nature, wood elves have keen senses and intuition. Their fleet feet carry them quickly and stealthily through their native forests. Their skin tends to be copperish in hue, sometimes with traces of green. Wood elven hair tends toward browns and blacks, but it is occasionally blonde or copper-colored. Their eyes are green, brown, or hazel.

As a people, wood elves were largely seen as calm and level-headed. Arousing strong emotions in wood elves was not something that was easily done, although many did have a strong aversion for large cities, having lost the passion for urbanization after the fall of Earlann. To wood elves, the trappings of civilization, including the mightiest of fortresses or tallest walls, were transient and impermanent things that would eventually be overcome by the long processes of nature.

Keen Senses

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

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.
