Racial Traits Effect
Bonus Attribute: At creation, the charater gets a +2 bonus to an attribute of their choice.
Keen Senses: Half-Elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
Elven Immunities: Elves are immune to magic sleep effects and gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.
Adaptability: Half-elves receive Skill Focus as a bonus feat at 1st level.

The Half-Elf is fittingly something of a mix between the human and elf, having the human’s player-chosen attribute boost, mixed with the elven Keen Senses and immunity to sleep and resistance to enchantments. That said, the extra skill point per level the human gets is superior to the half-elven “Adaptability” racial trait, nor do they possess the Elven Magic, natural Intelligence bonus and Elven Weapon Familiarity that make elves arguably superior Alchemists and Wizards.

On the whole, half-elves lack a human’s versatility and don’t have enough of the racial traits that made elves interesting as Intelligence-based classes. This doesn’t stop them from making fine Rangers and Rogues, however - roles where their Keen Senses and Elven Immunities will come in quite handy.

At the mansion of the Swordlord Jamandi Aldori, adventurers have gathered, lured by the promise of dominion should one of them conquer the nearby Stolen Lands and oust its current overlord - the Stag Lord. You are one such adventurer, and Jamandi’s offer isn’t just a benevolent call-to-arms to make the Stolen Lands safe for normal folk, there’s political angles to its conquest, and the ultimate allegience of its new ruler. More than that, however, a sinister, primordial force has her own interests in the Stolen Lands, and a desire to see new rulers rise… and fall. The Pathfinder: Kingmaker guide includes a full walkthrough of the game’s main campaign, including various side quests, companion quests and strategies.
