Added DiffLines:

* MundaneUtility: Particularly in adventure paths, several items and materials that are usually focused on for high-end adventurers are shown to have uses above and beyond adventuring careers. One example is {{Mithril}} - one adventure path has a character who has a mithril frying pan. Not only is it a masterwork item (thus giving a cook a +2 to their check when they cook with it), but it's naturally non-stick.

** Everybody in Taldor may wear a beard, not just the nobles. Who ever told you that?[[note]]The writers put in a bit of self-deprecation when they wrote ''Inner Sea Races'', explaining that originally it ''was'' only the nobles who could wear beards... but that this fad and the 'rather inane class division' it had led to had largely fallen out of fashion. Then they deprecated themselves again in ''Taldor, the First Empire", explaining that Taldor has the shortsighted habit of 'forgetting' embarrassing moments in its history... such as the period in which only nobles were allowed to wear beards[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* MayflyDecemberFriendship: Elves who grow up among shorter-lived races rather than their own kind are called Forlorn. Since elves are considerd adult at 110, each one of them has by this time buried roughly two generations of "childhood friends" who grew up, lived their lives and died of old age. Many more companions will die in the course of the rest of their lifespan (naturally somewhere between 350 and 750 years), resulting in many Forlorn becoming cynical, bitter and insular.


Added DiffLines:

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: While not actually immortal (only very long-lived), the Forlorn elves have this problem. They grow up amongst humans and reach adulthood at age 110 (equivalent to a 15-year-old human), meaning a usual elven young adult has seen roughly two to three generations of "childhood friends" become adults, marry, have children of their own, grow infirm and finally die of old age. When they themselves die between the age of 350 and 750, many more shorter-lived companions will have come and gone. It is perhaps not entirely surprising that many of these elves are rather cynical and insular.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra:While Paizo has created creatures and races of their own, and have used plenty of favorites from Wotc's library, much of their world is rounded out with more obscure D&D races. Most notably, Aboleths largely take the place of Illithids.
