I had all sorts of little contentions with that particular post, but at the same time, he -does- play good elves, sooo...

I'd say follow the word long enough that you get truly comfortable playing elves until you can deviate from its narrower scope.  It isn't that things are wrong in it, it's that they're pretty absolute.  You'll trend away from the absolute as the psychology becomes more second nature.

You aren't playing the stereotype is the big deal.  Play the elf.  Let everyone else try to cram you into the stereotype and suffer from bad predictions on your character, let them struggle with reconciling between their expectation and your action.  Everything is more fun that way.  But playing the stereotype instead of the documentation is boring.  The documentation makes room for a lot of things and interpretations, when read with an inquisitive mind.

I realize that sounds condescending, it's not intended that way.  I just kinda mean that there's a lot more that can be put into the characters than they're often given credit for, and I'm hoping to reach some people who wouldn't normally play it and help them find some interesting facets.

My Nekka,

I won arm as a scumbag, loner c-elf a few times over not that long ago... C-elf is hard mode. But it's the best mode.

Play to their strengths. They dont have many but the main asset is you get a lot of wealth in terms of character arc / concept in general. You dont need a tribe or a gaggle of PC elves or some coded clan if you come up w. something solid.

some cheat codes for a decent c-elf archtype / concept that keeps you city / scumbaggy but broadens your play area a bit (i.e. interact w. other races and could be played / based outside the Rinth...just no breeds).

Make a poison smith
Make a MCer spec'ing in stabby weapons. Everyone will want them if you keep 'em simple but savage.
Make a smuggler w. a class where you MC items w. hidden compartments... Swords that have ident sdesc but are not weapons...
Make a MCer who counterfits goods...
Make a spice cooker w. some MC class where you could make your own spice or brew up Arm crack...
Make a fence (bar is set high here)

Just play them all w. a 'f u' attitude. Make it about the con and make the con about the long game.

No matter how lonely it gets, don't get pally w. a half-elf.
No matter how great you think it might get, don't mudsex anything but an elf.
You're a elf. A city elf. The Lambo of Arm races. Play that to your advantage.

Get money. Get hot, long-legged Nekker babes (or dudes). Rule a corner in arm.

Kinda what the problem is. C-Elves have been pigeon holed into one very narrow role. You're some sort of criminal backstabber that might have a crafting skill.

Which is fine if you like the role. But you're SOL if you want anything else or don't really like the 'rinth.

Half-giants are able to play more roles than city elves.

This is a good point. There are many elf NPCs in the game. Some are regarded higher than others, like elf merchant NPCs. They are still regarded with some distain as elves, but they aren't all regarded as common criminals.
