What about the original Viking mythology about elves? However this is quite off topic.
As you showed me in PM, the Norse mythology is my sole exception, and its a pretty badass exception.
You have NO desire to watch LotR?
If you dont mind me asking.
(If not for the fact they are awesome stories... they are a part of movie history now)
Nope. Not the slightest desire. As for why, it never looked appealing to me. I'm sure if I watched it I might feel different, but as I said, I don't want to get myself into it. A good part of the universe is just a rip from Norse mythology. I've read online that they do infact take multiple stories from it and alter it slightly, and threw it in the Tolkien Universe.
=TSOL you apparently don't know that much about elves. Although humans cover a wider range of skills they do so with less actual... well skill than elves do. Elves train to near perfection in their chosen skills. Also a well placed arrow can be much deadlier than multiple blows from a sword or axe. Of course I prefer subtlety where as you like in your face. Which I have no problem with. They both have their place on the battle field.
I know that elves are more skilled than humans. But humans, as you said, have a greater range of their skill. Sure, elves are faster, smarter, and more dexteritous, but I prefer humans because they are like a midpoint between all skills. They aren't too varying.
