Why would an elf choose to live in the city?
I don't get it.
>Lusty elven maidens and youths that crowd around bars looking for anything willing to fuck- often right there at the bar in front of everyone, so long as you're willing to provide them a drink.
It's called vacation. If you'd actually ask them, they would tell you that they spend only some centuries there. At some point you just get tired of all those forests. So they mimic the high society of the city folk for fun like we would get drunk on some foreign beach.
Because they want lots of massive human cocks.
You want to hunt bears, you go where the bear lives.
You want to hunt halflings, you have to go into the city.
It's simple. The elves, in all of their pride and self centered nature, wanted to show humans they could excel anywhere so migrated to cities and took up the academic lessons needed to learn business and economics from humans and dragons.
A number of them became successfull business types but many became bored and sought other ventures while some and created dynastys that still own a number of successful products and services.
>Well it WAS a forest, 682 years ago! I wouldn't expect a human to know that. All you human's do is move in here and steal all the jobs from hardworking elven folk. Go back to the prairie-land you dirt-farmer!
>why would elf ears not be attractive
I don't like them on women. Even relatively small elf-ears look freaky to me. Also it draws my attention away from facial features that I care more about (i.e. eyes, nose, mouth). I prefer my women to have nice small human ears that stay out of the way.
...and now I know why a shadowrun elf would want to look like a human instead.

Imagine delicious brown elves who, due to heavily fucked up genetics leading to extremely low numbers of men who also tend to be very susceptible to disease, hunting human men to force them into marriage. Imagine that this eventually leads to a large scale war that drives these brown elves to the verge of extinction. Imagine that these brown elves are forced to give up their manhunting ways, and that upon releasing the men they took their recieve trade rights. Imagine peaceful relations evolving from decades of sustained trade. Imagine some of the brown elves learning and understanding that getting a husband through gifts and acts of affection is easier and pissess off less humans than kidnapping one. Imagine that, through sustained voluntary intermarriage, the brown elf tribes are more or less absorbed by the human society.
This is how you end up with urban elves. You get an overwhelmingly human settlement with some brown (half-)elf minorities, only vaguely connected to their tribal roots through some outdated rites of passage.
Same reason anyone goes to the city,work. There is probably higher demand for skilled elves in the city than in their own tribes where most of the positions are occupied by old farts that refuse to age and die so the enw generation can take their jobs.
That's awfully racist of you, anon. Are you implying other races aren't capable of building a society advanced enough to absorb other civilizations?
Because the elves are brown and -by your assumption and your assumption alone- the humans are white? Would you call what the Romans did to the Gauls cultural genocide as well? Despite the fact that the culture of Gaul was not Latin but this new thing called "Gallo-Roman"? Or is it merely assimilating the Gauls into civilization?
Could you stop turning everything into racially motivated propaganda for five seconds? We're trying to have fun here.
So the only racist charge that can be pressed against me is fetishization of a race that does not exist. I didn't ask to be judged by some Marxist retelling of history that relies on presuppositions that are far more racist than anything I actually said, against actually existing races.
> doesn't know that elves built the first cities.
Seriously, get some perspective. Those Elves that you think live in the forests? They are just going camping. Elvish parents feel it is important that their kids get exposed to nature.
Its just that, being Elves, their idea of a 'camping trip' lasts for 200 years or so. And they get really upset if you interrupt them.
WE WUZ KAINGZ AN SHEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIT!
Mostly I just do it for the exotic pet trade. A fledgeling can bring thirty gold in the right market. They say you can even train one to talk.
Cities are full of culture to experience. Elves dig culture. Where else could they experience a dozen cuisines brought from foreign lands by immigrants, see the greatest works of esteemed artists, and listen to wonderful compositions played by orchestras of the most talented musicians gathered from around the world?
Those snobby elves would fucking love being in a city because they can brag about how much better they are for living around all this.
It doesn't have to be white killing niggers for it to be genocide. Africans have a long history of genociding each other for generations, well before we got involved. They still do it on a regular basis.
The story of Mexico is basically that of a bunch of horny Spanish men walking up to the natives and going "Ayyy gurl want summa dis +10 Holy Catholic dick?"
It's not fornication if Deus Vult, and Deus definitely Vult!
Because he prefers scholarly pursuits, crafting, politics or arts more to life in forest?
Because there's too many hunters and druids and cities offer better job opportunities?
Because he has developed taste for human booty?
Because he's rebelling against his elders?
>Only camo is the jacket
Everything that is /k/ in me is screaming that this should not be
The magazine pouch is patterned too. It's a woman holding a gun, what the fuck would she need a helmet for?
>In the military
She's not in uniform. There's nothing at all to suggest she's military.
