If there’s one thing that irks me about the D&D game systems, it’s 4.5 foot tall Elves. I got into fantasy by reading Tolkien, so I think of Elves as standing taller than humans. In any case, I asked my DM for tall Elves, but he wants some justification for it. Basically, if I can show him non-Tolkien examples (he says only Tolkien had tall elves) of settings (mostly in literature, I’m assuming) with Elves taller than humans, I can have tall Elves in our upcoming campaign.
So, any ideas? Thanks.
