Elves are basically Native Americans. They live in small tribes but are normally grouped under one of the following three large groups. The Iroquois tribes are located in many parts of the Midwest of the US and span into most of Canada. They are under a peace treaty with the US to stop war and expansion on both sides. The Navajo are basically West of Texas and cover deserts and forests. They are under no treaties and can be quite territorial. The Aztec/Tainos used to have vibrant kingdoms and cities but these were taken over mostly by Spain. They are subjugated people, sometimes enslaved, but mostly marginalized from current society. Some have theri spirits broken, others rebel, and some want join the status quo.
Because elves rarely follow magic, after the arcane cataclysm, elves in this game use the Wood Elf variant. They have +2 Str, +2 Dex and -2 Con. They do not have access to the Elven Magic trait but can use any of the other alternate traits found in SRD. Elves live up until 200 years and use the human aging table multipied by 2.
