Motionless in the gail wind, winter pelts draped about them for camouflage, they wait in the frigid wastes, preying upon dire beasts and arctic horrors that lurk in the deep washes of snow. Frost elves are around five feet tall, lean and trim, like a frozen corpse. Their skin is gaunt and pale with a tinge of blue on the tips of their extremities. Squinting in the bright sunlight of the snowy desert, their eyes are a chilly pale blue or even white. Their hair, left to flow freely in the wind, has tinges of colors like blues and purples, but is so pale, that only frost elves, with their keen sight and pickiness, ever care to make a distinction other than white.

Elves, FrostEdit

PersonalityEdit

Summary::Frost elves are crude, narcissistic, and generally unpleasant to anyone other than a frost elf. Frost elves distrust the magic of other races, targeting enemy spellcasters first in battle.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Motionless in the gail wind, winter pelts draped about them for camouflage, they wait in the frigid wastes, preying upon dire beasts and arctic horrors that lurk in the deep washes of snow. Frost elves are around five feet tall, lean and trim, like a frozen corpse. Their skin is gaunt and pale with a tinge of blue on the tips of their extremities. Squinting in the bright sunlight of the snowy desert, their eyes are a chilly pale blue or even white. Their hair, left to flow freely in the wind, has tinges of blues and purples, but is so pale, that only frost elves, with their keen sight and pickiness, ever care to make a distinction other than white.

RelationsEdit

Frost elves despise the warmth of other races. Cozying up around a fire with others to tell stories sickens them. A snarl crosses their lips at the mention of such activities. Frost giants don't get along well with frost elves, but occasionally, during times of a common enemy, the two form temporary, and shaky, alliances.

AlignmentEdit

Rarely caring for the feeling, rights and personal safety of others, frost elves tend to be Neutral Evil, doing what they please as long as they can get away with it.

LandsEdit

They live in remote, frozen wastelands and high mountain peaks. They thrive in blizzards and lands that would kill other races in hours.

Frost elves do not have many possessions, as living in such foreboding lands affords them little resources. As such, their possessions are often very old, handed down for generations and kept in prime order.

Their culture is held together by a ruling king and queen, who are worshiped like gods. The royal family presides over their countrymen and they keep strict borders. Trespassers are almost always attacked on sight, and those who surrender are questioned and imprisoned, where they often die of mistreatment within a short time.

ReligionEdit

In addition to worshiping their king and queen, frost elves also pay respects and homage to those deities that revere the cold and ice as well as those deities with a Neutral Evil inclination.

LanguageEdit

They speak Elven. In addition, they learn the tongues of their enemies, which encompasses any other race that lives nearby to their homes and enters their lands.

NamesEdit

Frost-elves take pride in their names, as they are based on their own actions, deeds and accomplishments. The names they are given include unique surnames, given based on events at birth, early childhood, and any time up to their first kill.
