Elves delight the readers of fantasy books and gamers alike. Ephemeral beings of light and spirit, they dance just on the edge of our awareness. They can be angels and demons, the personification of otherworldly magic or nature spirits depending on who does the telling. They may be warriors, wizards, singers, poets, dreamers… or nothing at all, just figments of movement at the corner of our eyes. The Quintessential Elf II: Advanced Tactics focuses on trying to help the reader get the most out of what he already knows about elves. It starts off with basic rules for tailoring elves to fit specific roles in a campaign or world. We then move on to discuss building truly epic elves using multiple classes and legendary career paths that lead to the ultimate reaches of combined martial might and elven magic.

Then there is the technology and knowledge of the elves. Rather than presenting a single possibility, this book describes the magical and mysterious elven culture, their ways and means of item creation and their fey tricks. How do elves that are effectively angels differ from those who represent the spirits of nature? What tricks does a wild spirit elf use that a near divine immortal does not? Elfin crafts, grown crystals, living magic, woven light, charm feats... all are presented in a discrete, mechanically clear manner, keeping to the theme of elves as essential spirits. Elves express something fundamental, something primal about their world. This purity gives them strength even as it blinds him to the concerns of lesser mortals.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
