Culturally, environmentally, philosophically, elves and humans are very different. Physically, they are similar - comparable in size, facial structure, and skin tones. Genetically, they are compatible. Given the basic physical similarity of humanoid races and creatures, elves and humans are among the few who can successfully procreate together. It is the fey defiance of mortality that is the cause of most of the problems of the elven-human bond...

An elf and human coupling is destined to be short lived or to end in tragedy. If the differences
in culture do not end the relationship prematurely, the differences in lifespan leave elf widows and widowers. Legends abound of human heroes and elven princesses overcoming great obstacles of evil and tyranny, only to enjoy only a brief moment of happiness in their incongruent lifespans.

Half-elves embody the tragedy of their parents. Most half-elves grow up in broken homes, misunderstood by their parents. Half-elves reach adulthood slightly later than humans, but they reach merely middle age by the time humans are coming to the ends of their lives. When elf parents of half-elf children leave on decade-long campaigns, they return to find they have missed their children’s formative years. Human parents of half-elf children become convinced that their children have developmental disabilities, taking longer to acquire basic skills despite the elf reputation for genius intellect. Half-elves invariably grow up marginally aware of a missing component to their childhood, nicknamed the ‘soulheart’, and are frequently frustrated by their inability to identify it.

Rarely, a half-elf is born of two half-elf parents. Half-elves get along together in short spurts. Unless each half-elf fulfills the other’s soulheart, the awkwardness in one tends to provoke painful memories in the other. The most successful half-elf couplings are between a half-elf raised by elves and a half-elf raised by humans.

Presented here are several options for your half-elf characters, including new racial variants,feats, flaws, and equipment. Enjoy!

From the Product Description:

"Rarely, a half-elf is born of two half-elf parents. Half-elves get along together in short spurts. "

So "get along together" is half-elf slang for boinking, and they don't have much self-control? ;)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
