Can Elves Sleep?

Post  Ragdoll_Knight on Thu Jan 06, 2011 8:57 am

I was going to put this in the racehall, but I wasn't sure if it would be available for everyone if I did.
Eve and I have discussed this a little, but I wanted an official ruling. Since Dohral has sub-standard Lore, can our Elves sleep? Naturally they would still be immune to sleep, but if they wanted to sleep, could they?
What does everyone think?

I subscribe to the old school (like 1st ed) sort of elf. They CAN sleep, but it is the 'magic influenced sleep (and charm)' that they are resistant to - note also, CHARM, as if an elf IS susceptable to natural charm and hence quite able to 'fall in love' but NOT due to some magical influence.

By these measures, and the old standard rules, elves do sleep, tho they generally sleep less than humans or most other races.

Be well. Game on.

That's what I was hoping for, but I wasn't sure. After all, how else to distribute them Dream States?

Was getting into a big argument about that in other servers too, I like your explanation better... If they can't sleep they means they wouldn't get exhausted and such, so how would it be when they get knocked out/pass out/etc then? Lot of systems do that and say that in RP they don't sleep... Er? <_>

Well.. they can get knocked out. Sleeping and being passed out is not the same thing. o.O'

They meditate when they get tired or something... It works the exact same way as sleeping but its sorta controlled. So they do it when exhausted and such. I think its really silly.
