Now that I look at it, there are several techniques, that make a given Elf a dangerous opponent in one-on-one combat. What I don't see (or may be just overlooking), are techniques specifically designed against large groups of lesser opponents - for that seems to be their fate, to fight against hordes of primitives. There are obviously the archery/throwing techniques, what about their melee equivalents - for individuals, or for groups? Go to Comment
Against hordes of lesser opponents the elves are much more likely to expend their allies ala Vlos Mzil Abbanen, saving the more dangerous and skilled foes for themselves. Human allies can expect to fight swarms of goblins and orcs, with a few token Elven advisors as leaders and councilors. When alone, elves would use ranged combat against such foes, retreating and picking them off as quickly as possible with an emphasis on leaders and commanders. Go to Comment
I 'love to hate' elves, and now I have more reason :D
I am very curious to know where the inspiration for all these names came from....These are the coolest names I have ever seen in your work, starting with Vlos Mzil Abbanen!! Its like you "channeled" some actual ancient language! Oh wait, okay...last line..drow translater...still awesome!
I really like the idea of elves feeling above petty warfare but certainly not above hiring others for the job. Great concept.
The fighting styles were interesting, but I am not sure how useful the individual thrusts and moves are without any game mechanics attached. Would have been more interesting to read about elven tactics in warfare in general. Go to Comment

To run off to Gaberlunz is to forsake all claims, ties, and bonds, to expunge all debts owed to others or from others and to 'run away'. Many love struck couples have eloped to Gaberlunz to make a new start, but most find the place falling well short of their imagined honeymoon paradise.
lovely, melancholic, and tragically full of verisimilitude. Go to Comment
A friend for Mathom. Mayhaps they sit around together, shooting the breeze. Zufa keeps misplacing stuff, and Mathom suggests they look for the item later...Deletos makes sure the item is not there to be found later. And so it goes... Go to Comment
