Carromeleg is an elven martial arts style that is similar in appearance to capoeira, with whirling, dance-like movements. Carromeleg is noted for its stances: a practitioner of the Elven martial art can judge the proficiency of his opponent by her stance. It is thus obvious to the merely skilled when they are facing a master, such as certain Great Elves. Practitioners with an awareness of imminent death may enter zathien, and assume a more natural, relaxed pose: such opponents are much more difficult to defeat, as they have already accepted death.
