I think an Elf with Halsin's bodytype only really becomes an issue if it's commonplace, the median strength for all elves should be 8, nothing about that means there can't be strength 18 elves, it's just exceptional.
More of an issue to me (and a minor one at that) and I think more in line with the thread, is how square his face looks, there doesn't seem to be much difference between human, half-elf, and elf facial structure, but that has to be a result of them using real people as models.

There is no correlation between char's appearance and their strength ability - Lae'zel's is 17 and Halsin's 16...

In 5e, if you decide to roll for your char's height/weight, it is literally impossible to get a wood elf (the heaviest of the bunch) as buff as Halsin is. smile I don't really mind the buffness itself though, makes some sense for someone shapeshifting into a bear. He's just not elf by face features etc., half-elf at best... smile

Certainly, I cannot imagine if its exposed in the engine it would be hard at all, but it will put my mind at rest.

Elves should be hauntingly and enticingly beautiful. Even if the depictions of them have changed. The lore hasn’t. Half elves are one of the most rampant half-breed in Faerun, because everyone lusts after them, for that very reason. Elves, the original viagra, lol.

+1. DOS2 really disrespected elves and I was disgusted with how similar they look to the ants in the movie Antz.


Check out my thread on inventory, sizes, and proportions.

That's ridiculous, elves don't poison children. They steal children to be their slaves for all eternity. Such fair folk they are.

What do you expect? You really can't portray a tall, mostly fair skinned race with superior airs - without somehow bringing them low in this political climate. The lizards got the honor of arrogance and advanced society while the elves were made into tribal tree huggers. All together more lenient than how Dragon Age dealt with their offensive knife-ears.

Yep! All of us sometimes dreamed about big and strong elf, and not a typical "scientist" elf type.
What nonsense is this? You are a minority that wished for an Elf like Halsin grin. I did not even notice that Halsin was an Elf when I did meet him. The only thing that makes sense he is an Elf that the leaders of this faction are Elves:


Halsin is perhaps in his bulking form like a Werebear.

I am even so fan of traditional Elf look that when I created my Wood Elf I changed the skin from green to white smile.
Here a picture of my Wood Elf when he becomes level 4:

Well though my favorite Cleric domain has not yet been introduced the Light Domain is ok for me for now currently if Cleric.

Here is the look of my dream partner she is actually Half-Elf, but certainly she looks more Elven then say Halsin.

What me racist on green skin? No it is not that I find Lae Zel so attactive I could spend a night with her in real life. Githyanki though are not Elves and my ultimate dream partner in looks is not Lae Zel. Can I find Drow dark skinned and white haired attractive so I could spend a night with a drow woman? Yes!
This or Belle Delphine as Elf that I can fuck smile. Yes I do like Belle Delphine cool! You can use google.com and find "Belle Delphine pictures as Elf". She is like a young (18+ and she is 21 right now) Elf woman.

Haha. I'm still sticking to my early theory that someone at Larian swapped elves (which they portray as more buff) for half-elves (portrayed more slender elven) by mistake and has since just doubled down.

Uuuh... What? I guess you kinda looked like someone who would drink bathwater.

Actually. While I was put off by their appeareance at first, as soon as I met the first elf and I visited the elf refugee cave, I felt compelled to recreate my character as an elf. Yes, the appeareance was disgusting, yes, the cannibalism was disgusting (yet much better done than elder scrolls) but they surely succeeded at making elves feel like a race of their own. They did not feel like humans with pointy ears, and that I think is far more important than appeareance. That is one of the reasons I was thrilled of Larian taking over the development of BG3, I was looking forward to the racial nuances. Which so far, do not exist.

Well I like her free to see pictures on Internet and music on youtube. That said I have not paid any money or even buy bathwater or anything else. I have not given any money to her. I only enjoy her for free. I do have money (not even near poor), but I want more money if you want talk about this then please talk in this (it is offtopic in this thread):
Discussion about real life, TV series or movies She does sometimes look like an Elf woman. There are not so many people that even try look like an Elf.


I do like you want that Elves should be sometimes look more like Elves. Well and yes I have seen
The Lord of the Rings (film series)
movies and I do like them very much!

In TES they're cannibals for no reason other than to try and be edgy, to have a 'twist' to the wood elf trope. They revere nature (or Y'ffre, more like) out of fear and are hypocrites about it, such as going as far to find loopholes in their treaty with the forest by hiring other races to fell their trees for them, and hating on insects for... Eating plants... They're just a meme.

At least in Divinity, their cannibalism is actually a part of who they are as a race biologically. It is a way to share memories and knowledge and keep those who passed away still within the collective mind of the community. While I don't really favour the edgy/plottwist kind of elves, and they did not write super elaborate pages of lore, I think that is much more acceptable than eating people because giggles.
