Seelie Knight a Swords & Wizardry racial class for the 2016 S&W Appreciation Day

This is my contribution to the 2016 Swords & Wizardry appreciation day, the entry for the 2013 appreciation day is here: Swords & Wizardry short review and new class.

In this article we propose an elven "racial class" adding a new class to the choice of character class for the S&W game and introducing the concept of racial classes in S&W. Racial classes can explore dungeons side by side with all the other classes present in the S&W rules as convincingly demonstrated by the excellent Fantastic Heroes & Witchery simulacrum.

Racial class add one or more distinctive class that are representative of the ideals of a certain race, the race in question have no level limits in its racial class while other races usually cannot progress in this class, half-races are the exception. For example Half-Elves can progress in elven racial classes but have level limits, human and other races will have stricter level limits. It's not possible to multi-class in racial classes.
