Why is /tg/ so fascinated with elves? I get that their love for dorfs is mostly a Dwar Fortress related joke, but elves? Elves are the most hated race here, yet it's also not rape if it's an elf, yet Marcille is universally accepted as a qt, yet there is no shortage of musclegirl brown elf fantasies. What gives?

They mostly see them through the perspective of dull tropes from watered down gaming-high-fantasy and silly memes arisen from them.

The reason Japs draw elves with big titties isn't a big mystery. Elves are supposed to be rare beauties. In the west, that has historically meant thin, waifish girls with smooth, fair skin. In Japan that's four out of five girls. Their rare beauty is a thick-assed woman with rocking tittays.

This is fine. They can have their elves. It's not like Tolkien elves couldn't be ripped, which is something we tend to take away from elves in modern fantasy literature.

More like their exotic beauty. Yamato Nadeshiko characters are still depicted as waifish with smooth, fair skin and long, raven hair. It only makes sense for them to depict in elves what is uncommon in (their) humans. I guess that's also where the musclegirl amazonian elves come from: it's outlandish and therefore non-human in a Japanese fantasy setting.

Yeah. Elves fucked up, a mix of men and elves (but mostly men) make minor attempts to fix things, they ultimately tell the gods on the forces of evil, and the dwarves did very little overall.

Inaction plagues most of Tolkien's elves -- they live forever and even with the nature of their deaths are bound to eternal recurrence rather than coming from nowhere and going to somewhere else, but they do jackshit with it but defend, hide, and stew. And when one does something it's either Feanor or one of his sons who do terrible, stupid things at least as often as great, or else it's Luthien (who is awesome) or a half elf like Earendil.

There is another kind of elf that I think can have longevity -- the very fey elf. Aloof, inscrutable, and possibly dangerous they might be gracious hosts to you or serve you as the main course depending on the time of year, your phenotype, and whether or not you accidentally or knowingly follow or breach their protocol, which has little to do with human mores.

>tolkien elves [OK]

long living humans with long ears, no facial/body hair and puny physique. Few "differentiating" cultural/psychological traits that are not very immersive as they feel artificial and grotesque
>Forgotten Realms elves [blehish]
Above + general dickery + magical realming because Ed Greenwood is a massive perv
>Weebshit elves [bleh]
Heavily sexualized fetish tools. Also poorly drawn chinese cartoons
>Vidya elves [bleh]
Basically mix of d&d elves with maybe some addition of animu elves and even more over the top magical powers. Stuff like warcraft or M&M
>Warhammer elves [mehish but OK}
Something between tolkien and anderson (the latter in turn is lite version of fey elves) + massive amount of racism and dickery.

elves were great before (usually were between tolkien and d&d type in their golden age) but lost and now are oppressed by humans. Witcher does it good, Dragon Age is poor ripoff

Not that that suprising, really. From my experience, a lot of women tend to be rather self-concious about their appearance, especially weight, so it makes sense that the person they'd want to look like would have narrow waist and hips. As for the breasts, I am told that large breasts are pretty inconvinient. I do have one female friend with very large breats and she does occasionally complain about them giving her back pain and being very uncomfortable unless she wears a proper bra (plus they make it hard to find clothes that fit, but that's more to do with her having a pretty unusual build, being also quite short).

Another way they put it in one episode when comparing how the Federation (or whatever the alliance of nations the Abh were fighting against were called) and Abh do things was that if there's a sick man laying by the side of the road, the Federation tells him to get up and go to a doctor, while the Abh get him medical attention. Of course that was told by the obviously pro-Abh narrator, but they're generally pretty non-dickish for imperialistic conquerors.

Their main thing, really, is that they want to rule space. They don't really give a damn about planets, and would rather just live aboard space stations and shit, so the main reason they go around conquering planets is to ensure nobody can threathen their dominance in space (if all planets are under their control, nobody else can build a space fleet and challenge them).

I also prefer elves as being tall, slender and for the females having a nice set of hips. Although I like wide hips on girls in general, so that might have something to do with it.

This is why you don't put stock into shitty memes, they have a tendency to self-perpetuate like forest fires on a dry day. Elf is about as descriptive as human at this point. There's a metric fuckton of interpretations as to what being an elf actually entails, with tons of species, cultures, values, and appearances to coincide with them.

So the question is, why would someone be fascinated with elves? It's because elves are fascinating, for reasons ranging from people having a hardon for their narrative potential, to people just having a hardon for pointy ears and pretty eyes.

>a lengthy and one-sided courtship where she proves her worth as both a warrior and poet by gifting you trophies (murder-presents) acquired from slain foes, all while giving a hauntingly beautiful song about the pursuit and deaths of said foes.
That's both cute and disturbing at the same time.

Are you saying they browse in doing their duties, or browse in general?

Because the act of moderating is JUST responding to reports.

I'm sure they browse boards, but then the b& hammer is swung it is in response to some faggot who clicked report.

Do you ACTUALLY believe this? With every mod in the history of /tg/ behaving like a massively biased lunatic, and moderating the board like they were either moderating /b/, or a radfem subreddit?

Why would you not want to play as a human? Elves are just shitty escapism, and Dwarves are a shitty one dimensional stereotype of Jews most of the time. They're uninteresting, and Elves especially typically are superpowered bullshit.

You know what's fucking awesome? When a human rides up and kills a dragon. Not because he's got special powers or bullshit magic, but because he's a motherfucking human.

But I already am a human.

It depends entirely on the fucking setting how 'magic' the other races are, but if they are playable, probably not very much. And the human you are describing has probably a way much higher level than any ordinary human you seem to try to play in this game.

In Dungeons and Dragons, humans are usually the most mechanically potent race, so I'm not sure where you're getting elves being more powerful from. On top of that, I'm not sure how what you described is anything BUT shitty escapism.

HFY is a potent kind of autism.
