brown or blue. Though other colors such as amber
lavender, or other light colors are not uncommon.

Note: Elves have skin tones that range in most human ranges but almost
always touched with a healthy glow from sunlight. Elves almost never
have pale or sickly looking skin.

Note:Elves age very slowly. You probably wont see wrinkles Before they
reach at least a good 500-600 years old, and even then it would be very
faint and hard to notice them for another few hundred years.

Eyes: also earthy colors. blacks, grays, browns and green
predominate though silver and green are not unheard
of. Iris extends to edge of eye, no whites.

notes: ENTS ARE NOT TREES. Imagine a troll with brownish, craggy skin
though not slimy or warty. That's an ent. They don't have leaves, they
don't bleed sap. Ents have 7 toes on each foot, though this need not be
put in description. Most ents have beards. Ents have big heads.

shades of blonde and grey are not unheard of.
A dusky red is, at best, quite rare.

large irises surrounded by white. As the irises are
large, so are the pupils from years of time underground.

ferquently to duskier hues.

Height: males about 3'2" - 4'
females about 3'2" - 3'10"

Hair: Mostly shades of brown, some blonde or reds. Black (rare)
Facial hair is rare at best.

Eyes: Tending towards all natural human shades.

Note: Halflings appear much like human children though they do develop
wrinkles, graying hair and other adult attributes. Halflings often
develop a stout build, some say due to the 5 regulated meals a day they
tend to enjoy as opposed to the 3 a day most other races attend.
Halflings are not hobbits. We aren't going to ban you for having hairy
feet, but realize, it is not the norm.

Height: male and female 5'6" - 6'2"

Hair: (you're kidding, right?) They don't grow hair.

Eyes: Reptillian eyes, vertically slit pupils surrounded by an
all-enveloping iris in shades from red to amber to yellow.

Notes: Lizardfolk, lacking hair for descriptions, often employ the
descriptions of the various colors depicted by their scales. Much the
way a snake's scales form interesting patterns, the lizardfolk develop
patterns in many tones. Included are clans with anywhere from subdued,
earthy tones to ones with vibrant hues of red, orange and yellow.
Lizardfolk skin is typically soft and smooth like a snakes, though wet,
fish-like skin and raspy crocodile-like skin has been noted before as
