Is the word "elf" used at all in Arcanis? I thought I vaguely recalled it being used as pejorative but can't seem to recall at this point.

It has not been used in a canon source for many years (likely more than a decade), but players still use it as a pejorative fairly often.

I personally don't use the term except when explaining Arcanis to new people. In-play, if you take it as a pejorative, make sure that the player intends it as such and isn't just new-to-the-setting.

If you need a pejorative term for Elorii, using something like "Knife-Ears" would probably be better and more newbie-friendly. I only bring up newbie-friendliness because at Origins I didn't play a single table outside of the BI without at least one new-to-arcanis player playing a pre-gen, and the Elorii sorcerer seemed to be a super-popular pregen.

Most people like calling the elorii some variation of vampire ("pointy teeth freaks" for example) owing to their rather pronounced canines (see the cover of Arcanis: Roleplaying Game)
