From there one can see Wizards of the Coast changed in 5e that Elves are shorter by 0,2 so very little shorter and I dont know about 4h edtion and then since Pathfinder is evolved from DnD 3.5 I suspect very strongly they use that Dnd 3.5 heights in Pathfinder.
I will happily ignore the new Dnd 5th height tables absolutely and use the height in Dnd 3.5 and Pathfinder
That is not all in BG3 I did not like the default green color for skin for my Wood Elf so I changed skin color and eye color to typical Tolkien type Elf there you go. Right now there are yet no so many mods, but rest assure I would use some mods that would make some forum members roll their eyes hehee not likely to modify my character if my character is a male.
Well and in Pen and Paper I have often told my height to GM who have said ok. Well not that I have said example 7 feet tall and I have never created an extreme tall character in DnD well not to mentions sometimes I have created a dwarf and dwarves are not tall.
I donÂ´t know about rest of Europe or USA or Canada, but in my country Finland in Europe of Dnd systems Pathfinder is most popular in Pen and Paper and not DnD 5th. That said Dnd 5th is more popular in my country then the infamous and hated Dnd 4th edition that I consider the worst Dnd edition released. Personally I am not so Pathfinder only fan and I could say yes to Pathfinder or Dnd 5th edition Pen and Paper session, but I would say no to DnD4th edition session. Due to COVID 19 remote play has become very popular. Nowadays computer software to make that happen is used people use Discord and other software you can have voice communication from distance and some even use webcamera and very visual presentation you can see what GM choose to show including also Dnd tactical grid maps for combat and visual pictures of monsters. All that has a bit learning curve and not saying GM would be super easy.
Well and this sounds I play often Pen and Paper? No I play very rarely and one can do short campaign and one can take years of break or quit totally.
