Various Elves in C&C

Post by Tim Baker » Sun Sep 09, 2018 10:06 pm

I was reading through some C&C player options, and noticed that there's an unexpectedly high number of elf player races spread throughout the books. Here are some that I spotted. Am I overlooking more? Does anyone know why elves are so diverse in comparison to other races in C&C?

Was Castles & Crusades anything to do with Gary Gygax?

If so, are any of these elf subtypes anything to do with him?

I believe Castles & Crusades was the last system that Gary Gygax wrote for before he passed. He was working on the Castle Zagyg series, which was Castle Greyhawk with the serial numbers filed off.

I'm not sure if any of the elf subtypes had anything to do with him. Was he known for being a proponent of lots of elf subraces?
