Or, if they are not, there should be some good reason (I really like the elves from the setting Iron Kingdoms). Also, they should be tall, at least as tall as humans, maybe even taller.
I've been following the development of Dragon Age from when it was first announced over FIVE
Bioware have been not just making a game, they have put their collective efforts together to create a whole game world, even to the extent of getting advice from language experts in creating languages for their world.
So the setting is pre-defined...
That said, there is no reason why you can't change you game to make Elves exactly how you want them. It's the magic of Pen&Paper
The whole idea of Bioware and Green Ronin combining forces and creating a game with two sides is totally awesome. The best thing I've herd about in a long while.
Hmm... I wonder if there will be a special collectors edition with the PC game and the PnP rules all in one box set. (Hint, hint.)
