Frostfell Elf

These reclusive elves live in high mountainous or arctic regions, areas that are deep with snow through most of the year or locked in permafrost.

They are tenacious survivors, accustomed to living off the land and surviving on the slim bounty of their cold home.

Frostfell elves have ivory skin, often tinted blue in varying degrees. Hair color is usually stark white or pale blonde, though about one in ten have hair that is a deep blue-black in color. They commonly have eyes of blue or green, ranging from pale shades that appear almost white to deep, rich hues.

Frostfell Elf Traits

You are adapted to the frozen reaches of the world and have learned to shape the ice and snow around you into useful tools.

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution increases by 1.

Cold Dweller. You have resistance to cold damage.

Elf Weapon Training. You have proficiency with the longsword, shortsword, shortbow, and longbow.

Ice Crafting. You can magically form an item from nearby water, ice, or snow. The crafting takes 1 minute, and you can form any nonmagical object without moving parts weighing up to 10 pounds. Though made of ice, the object functions as a similar item made of standard materials. The object has AC 13, hit points equal to a resilient object of appropriate size, and is immune to cold damage but vulnerable to fire damage. If the ambient temperature is warmer than freezing, the object lasts 1 minute. As long as the ambient temperature remains at freezing or colder, the object lasts for 24 hours or until destroyed. Once you have crafted an object using this trait, you can’t do so again until you have completed a short or long rest.

Snow Step. Difficult terrain composed of snow or ice doesn’t cost you extra movement.
