I am working on some fan material for the High Elves, that as a goal, I want to gather as an unoffocial Higl Elf supplement. I started a month ago with my house rules for high elf mage apprenticeship, and now I designed some iconic careers of the high elf.

Since in my games Swordmaster is an advanced career I also designed the basic tier swordmaster career, which I called Warrior monk.

I will start by these high fantasy careers covered by the fantasy battles army books, because it is easier :P.

I will then move to personalize career cards from the official 3rd edition supplements with some elf portraits.

In the mean time, if any of you have any idea for a low fantasy high elf career not covered by the rules, it will be very well welcome.

 Looks great - though Im not really sure I as a GM would be comfortable allowing a PC a lion companion ??

I like the Idea of the White Lion and Swordsmaster been an advanced career. After seeing that the Ironbreaker is quite to hard at a basic level I changed him also into some kind of beginner career with a lesser Armour as suggested in Emirikols Houserules.

Great cards, great rules.

Me neither ;)

I just got encouraged after knowing that Hero's call will release Ogres.

I added a new High Elf advanced career. The Shadow Warrior which mainly is the standard Assassin with some Elvish flavor.

I am also starting to work on different starting abilities for the Asur, depending on their natal region.

Which is precisely your problem with the files? Can you not open the compressed files? The careers files inside the compressed folder are  in a normal jpg format.

The file with the race abilities depending on the natal region (not finished yet) is a normal pdf file.

In my games, similarly to the Swordmaster and the Wardancer, I made the Ironbreaker an advanced career to avoid the problem with the starting Gromril armour. To enter into this career a dwarf must follow first a military basic career, like soldier. Then a bit of role play and suffering (hehehehehe) to get the desired Gromril armour, and then good to go!

 Was going to react sooner, but then I didn't :)

 

Excellent work! This is all you really need (combined with enough fluff of course) to start a high elf adventure as far as I can tell.

 

Just some obvious text-errors/typos that I quickly saw when going over it:
Warrior monk career ability has some typos.

Also the career sheet, last paragraph should be "rely on instead of relay on".

White Lion Pelt card "sign" not "sing".

Woodsman's axe card: "wielder", not "wilder"

You cannot imagine how much I appreciate this! I am spanish and my english sucks, I will correct it asap.

Thanks!

Really nice!

You may whant to ad space in front of the text on some of the ability cards since it is touching the border.

mmmm, you are right. I will correct as many typos as I find and I will add the spaces.

 

In the mean time I have finished assembling the background of the different regions of Ulthuan plus the different starting abilities depending on their natal region.

 

I want to make clear that I have only created the rules. All the background information and pictures have been shamelessly borrowed from internet.

Yeah I guess I'm not able to open compressed files...not sure why. I know I've been able to in the past, but I'm not computer savvy at all so perhaps I'm thinking of something else. Any suggestions?

 The tier 3 of the Way of the sword has been added.

Warrior Monk -> Sword Master -> Sword Master Captain

Nice - I do however think that the Captain career ability should be EITHER ...OR .... so you cannot both use strength for the check AND damage - ofcause if you have a starting character progressing to captain this probably wouldnt be much of a problem since then a character would probably end up with S4 and Ag5 or something .... but if someone where to start off at higher rank and end up with a S2 Ag6 character thats kind of ridiculous (thought ofcause that would prevent use of parry...so S3 would be more likely). - being able to effectively use an alternate stat for your check would still be pretty powerful even if damage was still derived off strenght.
