DnD Races Elves of Air (Nomadfey)

Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

Races – Elves of Air (Nomadfey)

Also known as Tajuru Elves.

Tajuru elves are the most open to people of other races, seeing their skills and perspectives as valuable new tools for survival. The Tajuru are also more open to new lifestyles, be it living in a mountaintop citadel or roaming grassy plains.

They are tied to the sphere of Through, the element of air, and the colours of white and gold.

Elven Clans

  • Clan Bishtahar (Wendar)
  • Clan Chossum (Alfheim, Darokin) The traders of the elves.

D&D Elven Clan Chossum – Alheim, Darokin (Mainly Elves of Air – Nomadfey)
Settlements – Densae (Alfheim(-2,6)), Turnclaw (Alfheim(-6,7)),

Elven Clans – ChossumCalisan (Counselor, M, Rog7/Wiz7), Daisy of Desnae (Alfheim Town, F, Pal8/Clr8), Shalander (Karameikos – Specularum, M120, Pal8/Clr7),

  • DnD Elven Clan Chossum Hilt
  • DnD Elven Clan Chossum Heraldry
  • DnD Elven Clan Choosum Arrow

The Chossum clan is firmly in favor of outside contact and progress, as long as they can turn a profit. Some more conservative elves call the Chossums the “dwarves of Alfheim”, their love of money and desire for a good business deal seem decidedly unelvish. Others think them a regression to the ways of the elves of the southern continent, from whom Ilsundal led his immigration.

Most of the wandering traders who go from clan to clan with hard-to-get food-stuffs, weapons, and wearing apparel are members of the Chossum clan. The Chossums are wheelers and dealers. Clan leaders have proposed that major trade roads be built into Alfheim from Corunglain and Selenica and even the Rockhome mountains, so as not to stifle trade by focussing it through the Darokin road.

The Chossums resent the Erendyl position as ambassadors to Glantri, they feel that the Erendyl ambassador has no concept of Alfheim’s trade needs. There is talk of Shadowelf infiltration of the Chossum clan, but this is regarded as the idle gossip of folk from clans who don’t understand true entrepreneurial spirit.

Clanmaster Lynnwyll is in favor of anything that puts elven products in the markets of the world, and the world’s gold into Clan Chossum’s pockets.

Converting Chossum Elves in BECMI to 5th Edition – Elves split their advancement from a martial class and a spellcasting class for the first ten levels, then dedicate themselves to either the martial or the spellcasting class for the Letter advancement starting at C and going to M. Chossum elves prefer Paladin and Cleric as their match.

Elves associated with traders and crafters as well as flying, and are considered to be Air-Aspected. See all (Air-Aspected Fey) items listed below as your relic magical items. You can also treat (Elven) as relic items as well. See Genasi Overview for (Airchild) genasi items you can use is if you were a genasi.

  • Air-Aspected Fey – The items from these people have a tendency to deal with traders and crafters style items.
