Arctic Elf (Pathfinder 2E Races)

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out the elven heritages. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the arctic elf which is found in the core rulebook, so everyone has access to it. It’s pretty cool a little niche but cool nonetheless, let’s take a quick look at its breakdown here and just talk about it.

You dwell deep in the frozen north and have gained incredible resilience against cold environments, granting you cold resistance equal to half your level (minimum of 1). You treat environmental cold effects as if they were one step less extreme (incredible cold becomes extreme, extreme cold becomes severe, and so on).

I like it, personally i think i like the aspect of an elven community in the far north to be far more interesting than the actual mechanical elements of this heritage but nonetheless depending on the campaign, depending on the circumstances i could see it as being a great option. However i feel like it’s gonna get most of its use in relation to certain NPCs, although that of course is just a humble opinion.


That being said, let me know what you think of the arctic elf down beneath in the comment section, Also mention how you think they look, i just kind of imagine them to be paler, maybe white hair, that’s just me personally but yeah let me know what you think of them down beneath, mention how you think they look, mention if you have any thoughts, questions, concerns or ideas regarding them and mention if you have any cool backstories you’d like them to play around with. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
