Autistic DM (he/him)
Not clear yet. I actually kind of do hope that they lose some of the elven racial traits, as I think that would be a cool way of showing how the Shadowfell (and/or magic of the Raven Queen's apotheosis ritual) corrupted them over the centuries/(millennia?).Also: If the Duergar don't get the Dwarven racial traits, does that mean Shadar-Kai lose out on Fey Ancestry? I mean I was never big on having them as Elves either, but from a background lore perspective, it made sense that they had it since they were the results of Shadowfell fey and the Raven Queen's followers "mingling" together.
And I'm still not convinced that we need both Sea Elves and Tritons, especially since both of them are majorly defined as hating Sahuagin. Like, if we have one green/blue-skinned aquatic race with webbed fingers that fights underwater battles with the Sahuagin, do we really need another one of those but with an elven flavor?
