The Aelfinn[edit]


Aelfinn are cunning and charismatic. They love betting and gambling, but be wary. An aelfinn rarely makes a bet unless he's absolutely sure he can't lose. That's not to say that they'd ever go back on their word, or break a deal. The contract is the highest law of the land, and only disgraceful aelfinn would dare back out on one. However, it's never cheating if you don't get caught.

Aelfinn would only lend money if they've already made it back in profit, or you are good for what you say.

Physical Description[edit]

Aelfinn stand about 3 feet tall and usually weigh between 30 and 35 pounds. They have green or brown eyes. Aelfinn men often have long sideburns and mustaches, but beards are rare among them. Aelfinn prefer extravagant, comfortable, but practical clothes. They will always want to look good, but not at the cost of luxury. However, they must also be aware that displaying too much wealth may cause them to become targets of theft.


Aelfinn love other races. Either for potential customers, or new suckers in a bet. It's a lot easier than trying to trick other aelfinn.

Other more successful families of Aelfinn form mafia type business practices that are known through many type of communities and races. These families usually have large airships named after themselves that house some of the most devious types of business deals.


Aelfinn are almost always lawful, but not always good. A contract to kill is just as binding as a contract for partnership. There are many unspoken laws in betting and gambling, and only the most clever aelfinn can make it to the top of the food chain.


Aelfinn actually spend most of their lives traveling in large caravans. Passing through major cities is more profitable if they don't stick around too long.


Aelfinn can worship any god that allows them to make a profit.
