Infra-vision for elves extends 900 feet, half again as far as that of their surface cousins. All elves, they are 90% resistant to sleep and charm spells, but in addition they are completely immune to the paralyzing effect of any undead creature. Other types of paralysis do work against them. Shadow Elves can detect secret and concealed doors and compartments as per spell always on with the same skill as other elves. Their language is a dialect of surface world elves (since they descended from them centuries ago), and many are familiar with the languages of the other underworld races such as gnolls, orcs, and hobgoblins.
Shadow elves have the same chance to surprise foes as normal elves, but only in underground settings, or at night above ground. Unlike surface elves, these elves do not get a +1 bonus with a sword or bow.
Age and Appearance:
Shadow elves have the same standard life span and age requirements as normal (high) elves. They are slightly smaller and slimmer. Their ears are larger and their flesh is extremely pale. Their hair is often white, following a general trend toward albinism from their long subterranean existence.
