Advanced Races Codex: Elves is a segment of the never-realized volume by Green Ronin, updating and adding new race material for the 3.5 d20 fantasy rules.
As you might suspsect, the cheif resource for this book is Green Ronin's wood elf book, Bow & Blade. However, that book was a 3.5-ready book to begin with, so this book will not be as appealing to those who already own this book.
The main new (or mostly new) material in the book is the new elf subraces, which push the book's scope modestly beyod that of mere wood elves. Some other material is reused, such as the Bamboo Elf from Jade Dragons and Hungry Ghosts.
Only a fraction of the Bow & Blade material is reused here, but most of the fears, prestige classes, and spells are from Bow & Blade.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Some new subraces provided a few new options.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: There was little material beyond that already presented in Bow & Blade. If you are looking for a book on elves, despite the narrower focus on Bow & Blade, I think you are better off gettng that book. If you do already have it, there is little reason to get this book unless you are seeking out new subraces.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>
