The Ljosálfar (Light Elves), A Playable Race for 5th Edition

Suggested Price $1.00

Light elves, also known as the "Ljósálfar" (singular Ljósálfur) , are a subrace of elves and the antithesis of their drow cousins. Hailing from the Feywild, descended from a mix of primal elves and dryad, light elves are fierce rivals of the drow and see them as their tragic elven cousins. Light elves still retain some features from their dryad ancestors, and as such they feel more in touch with nature than with other sentient races. The first Ljósálfar, Elio the Light-Giver, born from unnamed parents deep in the Feywild, was also the first of their kind to leave the Feywild with a few other Ljósálfar and found peace within the deep fjords and green landscape of the southwest of Miklagard, later named the Alftindur Sierra. Here they founded over many decades what is now the Capital of Alfheim: Prìomhaile, a city that shines like a beacon at night and can be seen from miles away.

The Ljósálfar have an indifferent relationship with the rest of the races. They commonly cause humans illnesses due to their isolation and different immune system, but they also have the power to heal them, and seem especially willing to do so if sacrifices are offered to them.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
