I'm trying to recall the name of a sword-and-sorcery fantasy trilogy which I've read about 20 years ago. The things I remember are:
The plot was set mainly in a desert-wasteland area, and many of the characters were half-breeds.
The Elves in that setting were tribal wildlings. They were very tall, above 2m on average, and they excelled at extremely long distance running.
One of the main characters was a human who could read minds. The process of mind reading was thoroughly described: When someone`s mind was being read, sometimes he could become aware of it - and the mind reader had to "escape" its victim's mind as quick as possible.
Another important character was an exceptionally strong Half-Dwarf (Dwarf/Human). He was bald and beardless as I recall, and I think he was a gladiator or a slave.
One of the main characters was half-Elf who grew up in an urban area. She joined a tribe of Elves at some point, and struggled at keeping the pace with them.
