Description[]

DeepElf

The original artwork.

Far beneath the earth lives a society of elves that have turned their backs on their fellows. They have become an elite order of assassins, hiring their knives and their skills out to the highest bidder. The best assassins are given ice daggers that cover their victims in a thin sheet of frost, making their weapons and armor extremely brittle.

Deep elves live in isolation, far from other civilizations, and they have devoted their lives to eradicating the evil influence of the Ynfernael. Through some unknown means, their warriors travel to the blighted planes of the Aenlong, slaying the fell creatures that dwell there. But the Ynfernael’s corruption is universal, and over time even the most noble deep elves find their will twisted toward a darker purpose. Now, some of these corrupted warriors have pitted themselves against the heroes in their quest.
