Ethnicities

  • Section about aquatic elves in 'Oceans of Golarion' in Raiders of the Fever Sea p59ff.; plus consider should they be a separate article? --Fleanetha 18:20, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Well... I actually kinda favor treating elf subraces the same as human ethnicities, yeah. The drow have their own page, and I think the Snowcasters, Mwangi elves, and Mordant Spire elves could be justified as getting their own pages as well. Definitely aquatic elves, since they're effectively a different PC race, like the drow.--Filby 18:28, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Yes, on reflection, I think the major elf types could be treated like drow and half-elf with their own separate page.--Fleanetha 07:12, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Regarding elven eyes

The Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The Inner Sea World Guide states on p.25 that elven "eyes are large and show no whites". The entry on this page that states "often making it seem like they have little or no white in their eyes" seems to me a rather big understatement of this. What is the source of this information and is it more reliable than the Inner Sea World Guide? I suggest the entry is altered. What are your thoughts, people? --MrErth 12:57, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello MrErth - good spot. The quoted original source for the text on our page is the Gazetteer, which does conflict with the ISWG as you point out, but Paizo do update stuff. Anyway, the ISWG is the prime source (a Tier 1 Source). Have a look here for what happens when we have conflicts and what takes precedence: PathfinderWiki:Canon policy*. Also, if you haven't see it - have a look at the Project:Inner Sea World Guide Inclusion Initiative where we are trying to update the whole wiki to be consistent with the ISWG. We are grateful for any help and no one has updated elves yet.
* I see a problem there that needs updating! but leave that to me--Fleanetha 14:14, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the information. I'm new to the world of wiki editing, so that was exactly the kind of pages I needed to be referred to. I'll keep my eye open for more inconsistencies. Thanks again :) --MrErth 14:48, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
