Avlis policy on: Elven skin coloring in Avlis

Post by Jordicus » Sun Jun 20, 2004 11:51 am

All this information is already posted on the boards or in the players guide. I have consolidated these statements into one place, since players are claiming to not be aware of them. Ignorance is no excuse.

1) Do not make elves with dark skin and white hair on Avlis.

2) Avlisian Elf (directly form the players guide)
The most common type of Elf, referred to simply as an Avlissian Elf, is generally akin to a high elf in 2nd Edition AD&D terms. Their skin tones range from milky white to a mild tan, although there are sometimes grayish or bluish undertones visible in rare individuals. Their hair can range from a deep black or blackish green, to a bright blonde or red, much like the human hair colors. The almond shaped eyes of these elves can cover the entire human range of blues, greens, and browns, but violet is also seen. All other statistics for physical stature and size, as well as game play, are identical to high elves.

3) Ghost Elf
Physically, these elves are much more thin and frail looking than Avlissian Elves, but their state of delicacy is a beautiful one. Their skin is almost always a bright yellow, or bright yellow with a very slight greenish tinge. From some angles, their skin almost seems to give off a faint glow, hence the name ghost elf.

4) Drangonari Elf
They appear mostly elven in form, except they have scales much like a lizard in colors ranging from the darkest green to a bluish color. Their hair is always black, and their eyes contain slit pupils and range in color from gold to dark brown, with the occasional violets and greys.
*Drangonari PCs always have black hair and green skin regardless of the colours chosen in character generation

5) Sereg'wethrin
Sereg'wethrin look very much like Elves. The main differences are their dark skin and black hair

Sorry if this seems obvious, and also I am not a member of the team, but...

Ghost Elves, Drangonari elves should only be made by using Red Golem's character creator in the start tent of the T'Nanshi server. They should not be made by cheesing those colours and entering "Ghost Elf" etc in the subrace field. Sereg'wethrin are not currently makeable at all and should not be cheesed. If and when they become available again should only be made using Red Golem's creator.

As far as I am aware, you can still create drow in Hala.

Info about Hala is available on their boards, and on the CoPaP boards (http://www.copap.org)

No drow can be created on Avlis.

There are no Drow elves on Avlis..so there is no point in the team making them available.

See this...
