Path to The North
Half-elves are a mixture of man and elf, and occupy the middle ground between the two. They are stockier than elves and lack the pointed ears, though they still have slender and finely-chiseled facial-features of the elven faces. It is possible for a Half-elf to pass as man or elf for brief periods, but usually such duplicity is discovered.
Half-elves are not a true race, but rather the product of the union of man and elf, and as such have no national or racial heritage other than that of the area they have been brought up in. A Half-elf that had been raised in the Elven Court thinks like an elf: one from Aglarond thinks as a man, for the elven people have been long bred into the general population.
Most half-elves are loners because of their unique parentage. However, a few stable communities of half-elves are sprinkled around the landscape of Faerun. Aglarond, Cormyr, the Dalelands, the High Forest, and Silverymoon possess relatively high populations of half-elves and are appropriate homelands for halfelven characters. Half-elves from these areas generally find more acceptance than their solitary counterparts.
