Originally tiny mythical beings, elves have become a clichéd race of pointy-eared, arrow-slinging, forest-loving, effeminate warrior mages that populate every unimaginative stab at fantasy storytelling. Recent mutations look like dumptrucks.

Just The Facts

  1. Elves generally think that they are better than you, lowly human. And they are right.
  2. Elves like bows, and usually can't wear heavy armour.
  3. Elves no longer like to associate themselves with those little wieners from Keebler. They're focused on kicking-ass these days, not on tasty baked goods.
