Description: The Erlini ('Gardeners') have sandy or darkblond hair and light-blue, green, or grey eyes. Often described as less lordly than the Iylari, the Erlini are nevertheless graceful beings. They have a deep harmony with all natural growing things, and they prefer to live close to nature in her unaltered state. When they employ tools and structures, these are always subtle and clever of design, simple yet practical, and never intrusive on nature. Erlini maintain a playful and carefree attitude throughout their immortal lives. However, Erlini raised in isolated places tend to be more shy and resist becoming involved in the affairs of others.
Note on Elves: All full-blood Elves (Erlini and Iylari) have the following special attributes:
• Natural night vision allows perfect sight in equivalent to a normal clear night, 30' on overcast night or dim light.
• Acute eyesight and hearing grants a permanent +20 to Perception skill.
• +10 to Stalking/Hiding skill (essentially a 'hotfix' to offset the elven penalty to SD).
• Resistance to natural cold and heat: can function as if temperatures were 30°F/17°C warmer or colder than actual.
