Medium. Half-elves have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size
For all effects related to species, a half-elf
is considered an elf
. Half-elves, for example, are just as susceptible to special effects that affect elves as their elven ancestors are, and they can use magic items that are only usable by elves.
Half-elves are immune to sleep
spells and effects, and they gain a +2 species bonus on saves against Enchantment spells or effects.
Half-elves can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. They retain the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.
Half-elves gain a +1 species bonus on Listen, Search, and Spot checks. They gain a +2 species bonus on Diplomacy and Gather Information checks.
