Snow Elves
Snow Elves are typically a very rare variant of Wood Elves who live in extremely remote mountain ranges at very high elevations. More durable and rugged than their cousin races, Snow Elves are actually fairly barbaric by comparison their kin and are often mistrusted and even shunned by their cousin races. Few Snow Elves practice magic, but many among them are renowned as fearsome Giant killers. Many High and Grey Elves consider the Snow Elves to be a fallen sub-race of Elvenkind.
GM Permission is typically required to play a Snow Elf.
