I've got one who is using RichH's version, and has already asked if he can change his PC to match the new book.
Told him "yes".

I've got a player that I'm sure will want to roll up a Rivendell Elf ASAP.
So I was not the only one having such player then... ;) :)

One of my daughters plays a Mirkwood Elf, but when I showed her the new Rivendell Elf she got really excited (her favourite elfs). So now we need to "seemlessly" transform her character into a Rivendell Elf... ;) Of course it's an odd thing to do in an ongoing campaign (just a few sessions so far), but I put the enjoyment of my players first and foremost... :)
If I was LM I might ask her if she wanted to run two heroes: her Mirkwood Elf and a High-elf of Rivendell. But I don't know how large your company is; maybe that would be more characters than you want. And maybe running two heroes would be too confusing.

The company just have three players/characters, so one more would have been very nice. But I think it might get confusing, as you say. Me and my players are not new to RPGs in general, but new to D&D and AiME, so we have lots of things going on in our minds already... ;) :)

Instantly made a pre-order and got the pdf. I love it! So much good stuff in there.

The transition could be made as she is a Rivendell elf who was staying at the Woodland King's hall. It's not unheard of.

The company is actually close to the Woodland King's hall. I will propose this when we play tomorrow! :)

So the player-hero took it into her head to live for a while as though she was an Elf of Mirkwood? Clever! And won't the rest of the company be surprised at the reveal! :lol:

A bit of surprise... Yes... ;)

We ran a session today, with the new elf. We made the transition earlier this week. It all went great! She loves her new elf! :) And looks forward to some Elven-smithing later on!
