Something I’ve been wondering about for a long time and you might be able to help me with: Where did tall elves come from? Because in every edition of D&D elves are shorter than humans, but it seems like the average person’s (or at least average gamer’s) idea of elves is that they’re tall, and Shadowrun has tall elves, so it had to originate some time before 1989. (unless Shadowrun is the origin of tall elves but that seems unlikely.)

Pretty sure it is Tolkien – at least some of his Elves are taller than Men.
