First Appearance: TBFGK 21

Schlemiel Elves are an Elf brand.

Part of the Royal Crown Coalition. They were to be in the third wave after the luckless and eager elves. Erf-b1-p021Same-site.PNG


Schlemiel elves are unimpressive combatants, small, weak, and poorly skilled. When faced with any sort of serious opposition, they tend to die in droves, a fact not lost on the Schlemiel elves. It is possible that their combat deficiencies are balanced by a low pop/upkeep cost, or bonuses to negotiation, such as convincing a side to pay an exorbitant fee to forge an alliance, or perhaps they can pop mathamancers.
