The Elgr of Guardwoad Forest


The Hunter, with his bow nocked, moved quietly through the underbrush. Not quietly enough. The Elgr spotted him; he had no idea what he was looking at: It was an eight foot tall Elk standing upright, and not only was it standing… it was… dancing? Quickly twirling with ribbons streaming from its antlers, it was coming closer…

Then is struck him, right through the chest with its massive set of antlers. He was gored in several places with no chance of surviving… "Another fool," thought the Elgr

Full Description
These beings stand a full eight feet tall and have a massive set of antlers upon their elk-like heads. Their bodies are covered in short hair that ranged in color from greyish-white to dark red. They have elongated fingers and hands which are more suited toward wielding a paintbrush or instrument than any weapon.

The Elgr live deep in the Guardwoad Forest where they practice the arts of dancing, painting detailed landscapes and antler jousting.

Additional Information

The Elgr are a secluded race of fey creatures known for protecting the Guardwoad Forest from hunters and other unwanted visitors to the border of the fey-kingdom.

Update: This has been in work and untouched for 2 years. Time to toss it out as a stub and maybe make something featuring it. If you have any idea for expanding what I have, let me know and I'll add you as a collab.

Perhaps expanding the sub to cover a bit about their origins and if they arose through breeding with the fey using or some type of a wild creature they domesticated and changed through magic.

Perhaps giving their paintings some kind of mystical properties could help, and detailing how they fit in with the fey culture as a whole?

Just what I was looking for in an unusual fantasy woodland race. Will find a way to use these, soon.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
