"We are the chosen of Asuryan, beloved of the Gods and heirs to the world. Our armies are the finest in creation; swift where our foes are lumbering, cultured where they are barbaric. Give no thought to failure, nor defeat – we are the Children of Ulthuan and we shall prevail." - Aenarion the Defender, Warhammer Fantasy

The Mythic Elf

At the Dawn of Creation, when mortal life was first being built by hand by the new Gods of the World, the extended pantheon looked upon the world in wonder as to what creature could dare tread upon the land they had made. What manner of beast was savage enough to fight for survival each day? What dark cunning would be required to make use of all that was around them? What might must they wield to shape the world into one that future creatures could stand upon as well? Such a perfect engine was not unlike a God itself.

Which was the conclusion that Corellon Larethian put before the other Gods.

They would need no savagery, instead they would have his finesse. They would need no dark cunning, for they would have his comradery. They would need no great might, for they would have his great wisdom. The other Gods muttered to themselves, unsure of the wisdom of the decision, but Corellon was already prepared. One of the oldest, strongest Gods of his age, he remembered the Old Ones, and he remembered where they would be found.

With a strip of his own flesh did he create the vessel, himself in miniature. Pulling together most ancient forces, he bound it. A thread of Will, so that they may live on through any hardships. A thread of Passion, that they may be inclined to follow in their maker's love. A thread of Patience, that they may forgive the foolishness of lesser beings. And the thread of Grace, that all may look upon them with admiration. And with a spark of his own life, the smallest hint of godhood, were the original elves born: hale, hearty, keen, and wholey saintly. The Protector looked upon the, and knew that, in time,they would be known as the Kings of the Mortals. But until that time, he was content to release them into the world below, to cultivate and perfect themselves.

And they went out, children of the Gods held together by threads of a narrative that few remember existed at all. What they saw, they controlled, building spiraling castles and wide-spread kingdoms. What they learned, they shared, giving wisdom unto one another and to the races that came after them. Few of the Gods' follow up projects could stand against a united Elven forces, and even fewer wished to. 

The other gods were disdainful of such a creation, Gods in minature, so perfect that none challenged them. They instilled in their own creations the chance to usurp them. Moradin, the Soul Forger, adopted the newly discovered Valinn to become hands of his will, to be rivals of the elves, but their opposite in execution. Yondalla made her creations far more clever so that they may trick the elves out of their wealths. Gruumsh created beasts of power and hatred, to tear down the walls of the Elves. Even Pelor spurned the first elves, casting them to live in the dark, away from the love and the unity of their race. In a sense, all in the pantheon hated Corellon's self-insert into the worlds narrative. But he could not see it, for he, in his narcissim, had become enraptured in his little creations to even notice.

You, the ancestor to those first creation of the grand preserver of life, are especially love by your creator. Oh what a splendid curse you carry.

Increase your reach with Melee Weapons by 5 feet, and Increase the distance on any bow you wields range increment by 5 feet per your level.

As a standard action, you can call upon the ancients in your lineage, drawing upon their form to manifest a weapon. These weapons must be either a longsword, rapier, longbow, composite longbow, shortbow, or composite shortbow. Creating any sort of bow also provides you with an endless supply of Arrows. Either way, these weapons have an enchantment bonus to hit and damage equal to 1/3rd your class level, up to 5, and are considered magic.

If you choose to create these weapons from Will, It will deal bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing as well as its normal damage and counts as one size category larger for purposes of damage rolls. Arrows of Will penetrate non-magical barriers of hardness 10 or less.

Legendary Mythos

Lordship-Demanding Expediency Setting Shintai

Prerequisites: Two Mythos granted by the “Legacy of Untouched Divinity” Feat

You have become, in essence, a God in Miniature. 

Your natural Life-Span increases to ten times what it once was. You no longer take ability score penalties for aging.

Once per hour, you may make a Dispel Magic check along with a melee attack, using your level in place of your Caster Level for the check. You can even dispel Psionic Powers, Martial Boosts, and Stances in the same ways. While you have a spell, power, boost, or stance stolen, the one you stole it from cannot access it for one hour, when you release it back into the world. Just as well, you take on the dispelled effect as if you were the initial caster/manifester/initiator, for one hour, or one round, in the case of a martial Boost.

The first time you do this, you become overcome with a hunger for the power that comes from being so much purer than other. Why should those simple, stupid creatures have to bear the weight of the world your people have cultivated, built, and ruined, all before they were even alive? Any time you are in the presence of a non-elf who benefits from any sort of spell, power, boost, or stance that you could dispel while you have your dispelling attempt open to you, you must attempt to steal the effect from them. You require that strength to carry their burdens, surely they will understand? 

Your allies, those who stand beside you in battle and aid you in your pursuits of power, are not subject to these effects. They have already aligned themselves with the winning team, they have earned the privilege to try and capture your races innate excellence.

While you are under the effect of a Spell, Power, or Stance you have stolen from a non-Elf Race, you gain a bonus to skill checks against members of that race equal to your class level, but only if you are using those skills to climb through the hierarchy of their people. 

(Climbing into a Dwarf Kings 3rd Story Window, Moving Silently into his bedroom, Using Rope to tie him up, Disguising yourself as a him, using Knowledge (Nobility) to know the peoples customs and Knowledge (Local) to know his mannerisms, and using Diplomacy (or Intimidate, as the case may be) to force them to surrender to their Glorious Elf Overlords are all fine examples of this effect. Not that that has happened, of course...) 

While under the above listed effects, this becomes first and foremost task on your mind (Besides personal protection, of course)

If the dispelling attempt fails, then the creature is considered your enemy, to be killed on the spot. Is it not better to ease their suffering now, then let them live a lifetime of inferiority?
