Swamp Elves[edit]


Swamp Elves believe in slavery, and their social levels are well-defined, each level having evolved separately

Physical Description[edit]

Swamp Elves are slightly smaller than High Elves because their environment requires them to leap around and float on quicksand. They have green or gray skin, black or green eyes and their hair color includes the huge range from gray-green to black


Swamp Elves hate all things that live outside of swamps, except for Drow, which they sympathize with. All other races (even Drow) are enslaved by them.


Swamp Elves choose their alignment based of their social rank.

Swamp Elves, as their name implies, lived in swampy areas.


When the Swamp Elves broke off from the High Elves, they took their deity, Corellon Larethion, with them.


Swamp Elves speak a twisted version of Elven, but cannot generally speak common.


Swamp Elves have five names: a given child name, a chosen child name, a adult name, a rank name, and a family name. A given child name is based on the chosen child name of their same gender parent, but with the prefix Plac-. A chosen child name is unique, but some common bases are: (male) Elx, Nakl, and Xian (female) Penx, Vald├Žn, Oxna and Roh. An adult name is based on their chosen child name, but with the suffix -kal. The rank name is suffixed onto the family name, which is a compound Swamp Elven word, such as ├ćnagnis (Darkheart), Salmites (Swampflower), Salgnis (Swampheart), etc. The rank suffixes are:

  • Nobility: Draak
  • High citizen: Delan
  • Low citizen: Alt
  • Slave: (none is needed, and master's family name is used)
