Combat

Elves are cautious warriors and take time to analyze their opponents and the location of the fight if at all possible, maximizing their advantage by using ambushes, snipers, and camouflage. They prefer to fire from cover and retreat before they are found, repeating this maneuver until all of their enemies are dead. Their wizards often use sleep spells during combat because these won't affect other elves.

Elven Traits (Ex): Elves benefit from a number of racial traits.

Proficient with longsword or rapier, longbow, composite longbow, shortbow, and composite shortbow, regardless of character class.

Immunity to magic sleep spells and effects.

+2 racial bonus to Will saves against enchantment spells or effects.

Low-Light Vision: Elves can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, etc.

+2 racial bonus to Search, Spot, and Listen checks. An elf who merely passes within 5 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check as though actively looking for it.

A half-elf can choose any class as his or her favored class.
