Game Of Gnomes - A Song of Nice Attire
While most cross-species couplings are doomed to remain childless, on rare occasions fertile offspring can be conceived by a Human and an Elf. The result of such unions are Half-Elves, a hybrid race capable of breeding with both Humans and Elves. Children born to Half-Elves tend to inherit the race of their more pureblooded parent, but the genetic heritage they carry can result in Half-Elf children in their descendants generations down the line. Unsurprisingly, Half-Elves are most common in areas of Human-Elvish contact such as Dobunnia and the more cosmopolitan cities of the old Empire, but can also occur, much to the surprise of all involved, in the families of humans and elves in more remote areas, who may not have even been aware of their hybrid ancestry.
