The Altmer, or High Elves as they are often called, are a subset of the elven race.

The in-game description from Oblivion reads as follows for them:

"Also known as "Altmer" in their homeland of Summerset Isle, the High Elves are the most strongly gifted in the arcane arts of all the races. However, they are also somewhat vulnerable to fire, frost and shock."

 To give a small insight into the mechanics behind the RPG, I will keep the Elder Scrolls standards of attributes and Skills ranging from 0 to 100. In the case of attributes, 40 is seen as standard. A strength of around 40 is what most people would have. Every 10 points above this, a +1 is given to the modifier of that skill. These modifiers will be added to dierolls, to determine the result. Every 10 poinst below 40 however, will result in a -1.
In the case of skills, starting at 10, and every 10 points up, a modifier will be given as well.

So that said, here are the statistics for the Altmer race.

+10 Intelligence and luck -10 Strength and Speed
+10 Intelligence and luck, -10 Endurance and Strength 

Skill bonuses
+10 Alteration, Destruction and Mysticism
+5 Alchemy, Conjuration and Illusion

As said, races also give powers and resistances(as well as weaknesses), however, I am not sure yet in what form I will implement these, so I'll wait with posting those.

See you in the next post, (which will not be right now, but I like the line...)
