Grey Elf

Ability Score Increase. As grey elves are an amalgam of the elven races, they share their physical abilities. However, because they are also found the world over, they often have to rely on many different mental and diplomatic aspects to achieve dominance or acceptance in a region. The Laith Seachran have become very versatile, and have learned to take advantage of different intellectual abilities. Grey elves have the standard +2 to Dexterity, but may choose to have a +1 in either Charisma, Intelligence or Wisdom.

Elven Immunities. Grey elves are immune to magic sleep effects and gain advantage on saves against charm magic.

Alluring Aura. The wandering grey elves are the most likely to be making their livelihoods outside of their ancestral homes, often relying on their unearthly beauty to win over opinions, smooth over disagreements or just to be beguiling. They add a bonus equal to half their proficiency modifier to Deception and Persuasion skill checks, and once per long rest may gain advantage on either of these checks when interacting with a non-elf.

Keen Senses. Grey elves gain proficiency in Perception skill checks.

Diverse Heritage. Grey elves gain one additional skill or tool proficiency to reflect both their complicated bloodline and their study of different cultures.

Magic in the Blood. Once per day, members of this race may increase the DC of any spell they cast by +1 a number of times per long rest equal to their Charisma modifier. Members of this race with a Charisma score of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like abilities (the caster level is equal to the user’s character level):

Elven Weapon Familiarity. Grey elves are proficient with longbows (including composite longbows), longswords, rapiers, and shortbows (including composite shortbows), and any weapon with the word “elven” in its name.

Warrior Caste. Many elves devote large portions of their youth to the use of bow and blade rather than the study of magic. Grey elves with this racial trait may choose one fighting style from the ranger class.
