Elves (also called plain or common elves, when they weren't looking) were a race in early versions of Crawl. Their aptitudes were generally similar to those of High Elves, but less pronounced. This made them more versatile than HE, in fact easily the most versatile of all of the five original elven races. However, they paid for this by having fewer strong aptitudes: they only really excelled at Bows, Air Magic, and Enchantments (and were fairly good with bladed weapons and Spellcasting). They also leveled faster than the other elven races, though still noticeably slower than humans.
