The City of Ghosts
Moon elves are the most common sort of elves in Faerun. Also called silver elves, they have fair skin (sometimes tinged with blue) and hair of silver-white, black, or blue. (Humanlike colors are rare but possible.) Their eyes are blue or green, with gold flecks. They are the elven subrace most tolerant of humankind, and most half-elves are descended from moon elves.
Regions: Moon elven domains can be found in the woodlands of the Dalelands (in Cormanthor), Evermeet, the High Forest, the North, Silverymoon, and the Western Heartlands. Evereska, on the western edges of the Anauroch, is the strongest elven domain remaining in Faerun.
- +2 Dexterity, -2 Constitution: Moon elves are graceful but frail. An elf’s grace makes him/her naturally better at stealth and archery.
- Medium: As Medium creatures, elves have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
- Immunity to magic sleep effects, and a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells or effects.
- Low-Light Vision: An elf can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. He/she retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.
- Weapon Proficiency: Elves receive the Martial Weapon Proficiency feats for: longsword, rapier, longbow (including composite longbow), and shortbow (including composite shortbow) as bonus feats. Moon elves esteem the arts of swordplay and archery, so all moon elves are familiar with these weapons.
- +2 racial bonus on Listen, Search, and Spot checks. A moon elf who merely passes within 5 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check to notice it as if he/she were actively looking for it. Elven senses are so keen that they practically have a sixth sense about hidden portals.
- Automatic Languages: Elven, Common, home region. Bonus Languages: Auran, Chondathan, Gnoll, Gnome, Halfling, Illuskan, Sylvan.
*Favored Class: Wizard. A multiclass elf’s wizard class does not count when determining whether they take an experience point penalty for multiclassing. Wizardry comes naturally to elves
-indeed, they sometimes claim to have invented it, and fighter/wizards are especially common among them.
