Deepwood ScoutsSurprise is the greatest of weapons, enabling the stealthy to strike first and hardest, and tip the odds in their favour.
Deepwood Scouts hold the responsibility of patrolling those areas of the forest deemed too dangerous for Glade Guard to enter. To tread such paths, an Elf must be invisible not only to a predator’s sight but to his other senses also – no easy matter when contending with otherworldly creatures to whom Elven souls manifest as brightly burning lights. The Deepwood Scouts’ skills of stealth and concealment serve them well upon the battlefield. They are masters of ambush and distraction, the assassins of enemy artillery crews and of careless Wizards who stray too far from the protection of their allies. Indeed, many an invading army has been brought to battle utterly unaware that kinbands of Deepwood Scouts have dogged its footsteps for days. Only when battle lines clash do the Deepwood Scouts reveal themselves, sowing confusion and disruption among the enemy force.
