Please let me know if you can recall the source for this information.

That theme is touched upon briefly in Lisa Smedman's aforementioned novel, Heirs of Prophecy.

I don't beleive that's really been covered by any of the sources... they seem to have come with the original migration of elves. So they're probably not a "hybrid" sort of creature.

How were Avariel created?
aragorn II Posted - 18 Jun 2004 : 15:17:14
I am very sorry for being ungrateful and rude to you guys when you gave me information. I also thank you all for the information and links you have supplied.
Tethtoril Posted - 18 Jun 2004 : 01:06:05
Basic courtesy will get you far more knowledge than demanding irritability. Most sages and scribes in these halls prefer to be treated with respect. Anything less will be met with closed scrolls and a very irritated Tethtoril.
Sarelle Posted - 18 Jun 2004 : 00:18:47
Aragorn: Have you ever thanked any of the sages who have helped you out?

(Please note, this will be the last post that communicates with aragorn II, after a certain incident)

Please forgive this lowly scribe for not quickly giving you the information you desired in the proper format. I can only hope you forgive my lapse of manners.

Are there any modifications to stats (2nd Edition)

From Races of Faerun, pg. 32

Avariels have a flying speed of 50 feet with average manueverability, as long as they do not carry more than Medium load, are not wearing Heavy armor, and are not fatigued or exhausted.

Taegan Nightwind is, if I recall correctly, originally from The Earthwood. You first encounter him in the novel running a salle in Lyrabar. In the end the thing to remember is he's not a knight, but just an avariel.

Readers of the novel should enjoy that last comment.

Can someone post more information on this? Is the Avariel in The Rage from the Aerie of the Snow Eagles? Any general or specific information on this character and his role would be immensely appreciated. With lot's of overtime work and trying to run a campaign, I no longer have the time to read the novels :(. Anyway... thanks for the info guys! :)

Tethtoril starts going purple around the gills.

Aaaiiiigggghhh! *WHACK*

Don't even joke about that. Tethtoril will get you and your fingers and toes too ...

Other novels that feature avariel, albeit in brief appearances include Evermeet: Island of Elves (very briefly) and Heirs of Prophecy.

There was also an NPC in Baldur’s Gate 2 named Aerie. She was a “wingless” Avariel (Her wings had been cut off by her master when she was a slave). She spends most of the game telling (or whining depending on your point of view ) about her ordeal and life being a wingless elf. Not much written on her but you can see her 2E stats here.

That race has their own star now. Check out an Avariel character in Richard Lee Byer's The Rage and in his short story within Dragon #320.

Is it true that they use gnome aging tables and have a -2 to Dexterity and +2 to Constitution? (2nd Edition)

Aravis did some fine work collating everything to be found on them. You can find it here: http://www.candlekeep.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2326

They have wings, they are related to Elves(their deity is in the Elven Pantheon), they are listed in the RoF book. Hey, its a start.
