Steam and Magic
A once proud race, stripped of their magical power.
Elves are among this worlds oldest races. Long ears, perfect features, attuned to magic, Elves considered themselves a superior race. Some cataclysmic event centuries ago left them without the ability to harness magical energy. Once numerous, Elves have grown scarce. Most Elves are now afflicted with a debilitating disease of which no cause is known. Their once beautiful features now scarred and ugly. Some can be seen as squatters in abandoned buildings, living in slums. Others live in seclusion in forests and caves. Recently there have been rumours of gathering of Elves attempting to regain their former glory, but most dismiss this as a futile effort.
