Ability Score Increase +2 Dex, +1 Wis
Size Medium
Speed 30 ft

Age: The Yan Elves live double the lengths of Human lives. A Yan Elf can live up to 200 years. A Yan Elf's appearance and physique as one progresses in age is similar to that of a Human's, although it is stretched out.

Size: Yan Elves range from about 5 feet to over 6 feet tall.

Yan Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the glaive, the shortsword, the heavy crossbow, and the longsword.

Darkvision: A people descended from lightless midnights, the Yan can see in dim light within 60 feet of them as bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern colors in darkness, only shades of gray.

The Examination System: You gain proficiency in one skill of your choice. If ever required to recite the Ancient Classics, you have advantage on the Charisma (Performance) check. If ever required to take an imperial public examination, you have advantage on the requisite skill checks.

Imperial Persons: You gain proficiency in the Persuasion skill. When interacting with Scholar-Bureaucrats, any charisma checks done towards them is done so with advantage.

The Three Powers of Nature: The Yan are a people bound to the earth. You gain proficiency in the Medicine skill. When finishing a long rest, you may choose one of three powers to align yourself with: Heaven, Earth, and Man. Aligning yourself with Heaven increases you speed by 10 feet. Aligning yourself with Earth increases your maximum and current hit-points by 2 for each level you have. Aligning yourself with Man means that when you have advantage on an attack roll you may choose to reroll one of the dice once. You must declare this choice before the DM has said you hit your target. You must take this new roll.

Languages. The Yan are those far eastern Elves who remain isolated from the world at large, set apart by the high Alborz Mountains. As such, you are a race unto yourselves. You know Common (Pan Gu) and Elvish (Local Dialect: Yan). Pan Gu is the national tongue as propagated by the central state. Yan is the widest spread of the Far East Elf tongues.
