Ancestral Options - Half-Elves

The Best of Both Worlds!

In the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game, a character’s ancestry matters more than ever before. Instead of picking a race and sticking with it, players are encouraged to customize the benefits a character gains from their lineage, with a wide assortment of ancestry feats gained at various levels. While the Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook presents plenty of great options for each of these ancestries, the focus on customization means that there’s always room for new and exciting ways to bring your ancestry to the fore.

This book focuses on providing new ancestry-related options for half-elf characters. Often seen as tragic figures, half-elves fall somewhere between the grace and beauty of their elven ancestors, and the ingenuity and adaptability of their human forebears. Though many believe that half-elves don’t truly fit in with either race, it’s not uncommon for half-elves to thrive precisely because of their position between two worlds. In this book, you’ll find:

5 new half-elf heritages, including Deep Half-Elf and Brooding Half-Elf.

12 new ancestry feats for half-elves, ranging from 1st through 13th level, including Misfit, Cunning Charm, and Zen Improvisation.

A new archetype for half-elf characters, the charming drifter, for half-elves devoted to a life apart, able to use their charm and beauty to get what they want, and then set off for their next adventure without looking back.
