Wood elves dwell in dense forests. They have slightly tanned skin with darker hair that’s predominantly a brown hue. They are a rather contemplative lot, speaking little but hearing much. The elven love of art is strong with wood elves, but emphasizes ephemeral art like song and dance. Furthermore, wood elven ballads are among the best in the known world. Few hear such tales, however, as wood elves isolate themselves, preferring the company of each other and of nature. Outsiders are often given chilly receptions when approaching wood elf territory.
