Elves were one of the first fantasy races, probably because so many cultures had something like them in their folklore. Thanks in no small part to J.R.R. Tolkien, they're also in the running for the most popular fantasy race. There's hardly a fantasy game out there without elves!
GURPS Fantasy Folk: Elves is the consummate guide to all things elven. It offers racial templates for a wide range of elves, special abilities that suit the elder race, and stats for their gear and animal friends. But it isn't just a bunch of rules and numbers – there's also a great deal of detail on history, culture, and mindset, and practical advice on using elves in any genre.
Skinny, pointy-eared humans? Oh, how wrong you are, youngster!
