The fighting prowess of the martial artist has been amply demonstrated in comic books, in novels, in film and in television and many martial artists have achieved superstardom, or even cinematic immortality. In the East, martial arts popular culture has an even longer history, with famous monks, both entirely fictional and historical, taking centre stage in film for almost a century and in literature for literally millennia. The martial artist appeals to us on multiple levels. Visually, unarmed fighting techniques are beautiful, even the most straightforward of them, for there is beauty in brutal simplicity; this means that well made martial films and shows are thrilling to watch. Beyond the visceral thrill of watching lightning fast flips, punches, kicks and throws, there is also the unspoken admiration we have for anyone who can truly claim to be a master of some skill. The best martial artists are absolutely, unswervingly dedicated to the perfection of their bodies and of their fighting skills and we, as viewers, or even martial arts practitioners, respond to that. Elves delight the readers of fantasy books and gamers alike. Ephermal beings of light and spirit, they dance just on the edge of our awareness. They can be angels and demons, the personification of otherworldly magic or nature spirits depending on who does the telling. They may be warriors, wizards, singers, poets, dreamersâ€¦or nothing at all, just figments of movement at the corner of our eye. It is this seemingly infinite well of possibilities that causes us to come back to elves again, and again, and yet again. Elves can embody the best of us, our purest qualities unsullied by the decay of time or the grime of compromise. Unlike the more pragmatic humans they act on the epic scale, directly choosing good and evil without flinching. The Collectorâ€™s Series II takes an advanced look at the whole range of class and racial sourcebooks from Mongoose Publishing, all designed to greatly widen a playerâ€™s options for his character within the d20 games system. More than simple continuations, the second series of Quintessential books slot seamlessly into any fantasy-based campaign, giving advanced alternatives for characters of one class or race within the game, allowing both players and Games Masters the chance to give mid- and high-level characters new options without overpowering or unbalancing the game as a whole. The Collectorâ€™s Series II will not necessarily allow players to make their characters even better, but they will be able to do a lot more than they ever thought possible. The Quintessential Elf II does not aim to revolutionize the portrayal of elves that already exists in the literature of fantasy gaming. Elves are the single most commonly written about race; trying to change the accumulated perceptions created by such a mass would take a work of rare genius. Rather, Quintessential Elf II focuses on trying to help the reader get the most out of what he already knows about elves. It starts off with basic rules for tailoring elves to fit specific roles in a campaign or world. We then move on to discuss building truly epic elves using multiple classes and legendary career paths that lead to the ultimate reaches of combined martial might and elven magic. We t.
