The Half Elf Race (Not R.C.C.):

by Gabriel (Modified by Kitsune)

While Palladium books states that there can be no crossbreeding between two races, the half elf is not unbalancing for the game. There are two explanations, first is that humans and elves can interbreed. The second option is to allow the race to be conceived with magical aid. The skills are only if the character is raised in an elven society or by an elven parent. If the character is raised by humans, the skills should be taken from the reagon that the character was raised. This race is usable in Palladium Fantasy and Rifts. The character class can also be played in modern setting similar to the Mercedes Lackey "Serried Edge" fantasy setting.
