So to speak.
I mean, so I ran across this essay about elves and Tolkien and sex and stuff. While I know that Gary was not terribly keen about Tolkien elves, ever since the Lord of the Rings hit it big, it's far too easy to fall into the assumption that elves in D&D are, well, what Tolkien thought they were. Which is unfortunate, since we've got very different elves out there as potential models for our games, including those from The Broken Sword by Poul Anderson.
What do YOU do with elves? Assume they're all Tolkienesque? (Let's not get started on differences between the books and the movies...).
