What if elves are not a dying race?

Imagine the Roman empire but with pointy ears, going through infinitely repeating cycles of expansion, prosperity, and then collapse. Also ridiculous overpopulation because male elves are sluts.

Don't forget martial prowess.
The only advantage other races tend to have over elves is that the elves are leaving/dying.
If they actually gave a fuck, they'd easily destroy their enemies and conquer.

In my last campaign, since there's no reason for elves not to be able to procreate unless you've got some kind of weird fetish or you hate fun, they just kept on keeping on in their home dimension. No dying race, but rather a separate race, to keep things clean.

The elves were split between High Elves and Dark Elves, both residing outside of space and time, and mutually antagonistic as fuck. While they didn't have a full-on civilization set up in the Material Plane where the campaign was primarily set, various incursions, invasions, and crossing over took place at different times for dramatic purpose.

They ran on super-magic space science, and predated the other civilizations by millennia. Occasionally the adventurers would interact with heroes and villains of the Elven race, culminating in the attempted conquest of their world by the Dark Elves' armies.


tl;dr the elves were powerful beings from another world, like unto new gods to the peoples of the Material Plane.

How the shit ARE they a dying race?
In my setting they're not dying. They are a fixed number though. There are about 10000 elven proto-souls made at the beggining of creation. And when one dies, an elven female gets the ability to carry a full-blooded child to term.
They can breed half-elves like crazy though. It's jsut that when it comes to the part where a child gets or does not gets a soul, if there's none available it gets processed back into the female.
The elves are not quite living creatures and are immortal. Most of them remembers the creation of the world. Then again, that was only about 700 years ago in my setting.

They aren't dying in a LOT of settings... probably more than those in which they are. Hell, even Tolkein's elves were just 'moving on'. At most, that's what they're doing. As a race, they're wise enough to accept that the time of younger races is at hand... but, being an elder and nearly immortal, they're either making way to allow that to occur or to wait it out.

It's from the perspective of these short-sighted, misled, misguided, infantile and sickeningly short-lived races that they APPEAR to be a dying race.

In my ~ 100% original OC donotsteal ~ setting, they're the opposite: an emerging race of warriors, alchemists, enchanters and "raw-workers" starting to get the hang of this whole commerce thingy to expand their cities and live more comfortably.

One idea I had was that elves were actually a successor race to mankind. Humanity was the first race created by the gods, while elves are an improved model: they're stronger, faster, and tougher than humans, and tend to be more intelligent, more beautiful, and more magically attuned.

All human souls were to be reincarnated into these improved bodies, but then an asshole god incited a powerful human empire to make war on the newly emergent elves.

It ended in tears.

Elves undergo a fertile period once every seven years; for the remaining time they're infertile. This makes them desirable as sexual partners due to the lack of unwanted pregnancy through unprotected sex, and results in a low birth rate which in turn results in a stable population in spite of their longevity. Barring globe-spanning calamities, the global elf population increases at roughly the same pace as humans in terms of raw numbers.

My elves aren't really dying as a race, REGARDLESS of what some groups of them believe.

Admittedly, a big problem for my elves is that, they physically and mentally mature at a third the rate of humans (and live three times as long), so they tend to die out due to spending thirty years as teenagers.

Humans tend to go through a population explosion when they have plenty of food, since agriculture usually means you have stored food except during times of famine. Then they need more land to grow more food on, and the cycle happens over again.

Elves, however, are mainly hunters and gatherers since they value nature, with only a minority settling down and growing food. Though they have plenty of food, they don't store it. They also tend to prefer to live in forested areas, so unlike humans they rarely actively cultivate land and their population remains small enough to live in forests.

Also, raising elven children takes a lot of time, since they grow more slowly than humans and take more time to learn necessary cultural skills. Also, there's not a huge risk of elves dying of disease or accidents. Thus, it is rare for elven parents to have more than a two or three children - similar reasoning as humans in the real world today, since most parents don't have to worry about kids dying young.

Elven courtship and culture means elven lovers take a long time to settle down, and rarely have sex outside of procreation, so it takes time for children to be born. Humans have more sex during and even before marriage, so this is why there's as many half-elves as there are and why there's such a stereotype of humans having sex with many elven women.

Their population isn't dying - it's small and it's always been small. They just don't grow and spread amazingly quickly like humans do. They have no real reason to.
