Due to another thread where everyone seemed to have a different opinion, I'd like to make a little exercise. I want you to think a bit and write 3 qualities and 3 flaws of the night elves as a race. It's perfect if you can back them up with some examples or say why you think so.
Yes, I know every individual is different, but every race has different major qualities and flaws. For example, let's make this for real humans so you know how it works and I want you to do it for night elves:
I, in my opinion, would say real life humans are curious(because we want to know how x and y works, why, when etc), they adapt easily to stuff(living in some harsh conditions, inventing new tehniques for survival) and they strive to become better (both in actions and in what they are as bodies, we try to improve our thinking and ourselves). Yet humans are greedy (they try to take resources from others, even by force and hoard them), they're self-centered (many humans think of themselves only) and they're easily corrupted by power (without mechanisms to stop it, in general those in power start beliveing they're better then the rest, this is an example on why communism failed so bad).
This is my view of course, not every human has those qualities and flaws of course... and we're not discussing real life humans, we're discussing night elves, but gave humans as an example since I knew that if I would have started with my view many would have quoted me to point out where they disagree instead of saying their own.
So go, 3 qualities and 3 flaws of night elves!
