Okay, one last time. I think the point that others have tried to make here is that BG3 takes place in the Forgotten Realms, not in Middle Earth.
Forgotten Realms Elves have their own characteristics that greatly differ from Middle-Earth Elves (like the fact that Forgotten Realms Elves are shorter than humans).
Hence, Middle-Earth lore is irrelevant to this discussion about making the Elves appearing in BG3 more like the lorewise Elves from the Forgotten Realms, who I agree a bit alien (as in inhuman) looking as it was demonstrated by the DnD concept art included on this subforum.
Adult content creators, Elves from other fantasy universes (WoW, Guildwars) are also irrelevant to our discussion.
PS: If you call the Noldo Elves "High Elves", then no Legolas was not a High Elf, as he is a Sindarin, a Wood Elf in Tolkien's lore (Galadriel was a Noldo elf, you can call her High Elf).
Bullshit Elves are not shorter then Humans. In fact Tolkien High Elves are pretty tall only the most tallerst humans can be same height. Generally Elves and Humans same tallness. In regard to muscles and how stocky then Humans on average are more that then Elves.
"With their unearthly grace and fine features, elves appear hauntingly beautiful to humans and members of many other races. They are slightly shorter than humans on average, ranging from well under 5 feet tall to just over 6 feet. They are more slender than humans, weighing only 100 to 145 pounds. Males and females are about the same height, and males are only marginally heavier than females." (Player's Handbook 5e)
Here is the official material. I have no idea why do you find this so triggering.
Again, Tolkien is still irrelevant to this discussion about Forgotten Realms...
Naah I follow Tolkien elves. Apparently 5th edition is not good then.
