I part blame the late hour of this particular page on being social, part on fatigue. But it’s still sunday, so it’s not an absent update just yet!
Whenever someone makes a thread of some sort about hints or guidelines how to characterize a Night Elf, one of the top things on every list tends to be “You were not born in Teldrassil!”, so I ended up using that for random travel chatter. It was just how the dialogue evolved as I went at it, since it took a whole lot of thinking before I decided what the actual dialogue would be and what I wanted it to say. There’s still some hints, mentions and tidbits that I wanted in that I simply couldn’t fit without it seeming awkward that I’ll have to save for later.
One of the things I like about characterizing Night elves is the cultural gap – Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes and High elves are all rather familiar with eachother, leaving Night elves the odd ones out. Since we’re currently in Night elven lands, the cultural clash swings their way. Across the ocean, the situation would be quite the opposite.
