Half-elves inherit blessings from both their parents, but at the price of never quite fitting in. Curious, ambitious, and versatile, half-elves are welcome everywhere, but struggle without a community to call their own.

About Half-Elves[edit | edit source]

Racial Features[edit | edit source]

All Half-Elves receive the following racial features:

High Half-Elves[edit | edit source]

Default High Half-Elf appearance

A touch of the Feywild remains in half-elves with this bloodline, and even those untrained in magic possess a hint of wild power.

A step further from the Feywild than their high elf parent, these half-elves still hold a magical spark. They mature faster than their brethren, but only live a few decades longer than humans.

Subrace Traits[edit | edit source]

  • Base Racial Speed: 9m / 30ft
  • Cantrip: (Choose 1) High Elf Cantrip

Wood Half-Elves[edit | edit source]

Default Wood Half-Elf appearance

Like their wood elf parent, these half-elves have a quickened stride and eye for stealth. Yet many break away from isolation in Faerûn's forests to explore the rest of the Realms.

Subrace Traits[edit | edit source]

Drow Half-Elves[edit | edit source]

Default Drow Half-Elf appearance

Most half-drow result from liaisons between Seldarine drow and surfacers. While half-drow inherit a few magical gifts, they aren't usually raised in the Underdark.

To be half-drow is to wrestle with a violent and complicated legacy. Cleverness and tenacity serve them well, for they are caught between two very different worlds.
