Green Elves are by far the most isolative and reclusive of the elves. They avoid contact with all outsiders - even other elves, and are seldom seen. The skills and lore of their past are long since gone, but they still retain much magic. Some enables them to remain hidden. Those who stumble into a wild elven enclave are mazed and enchanted - returned back where they came from with no dangerous memories and usually without even seeing a wild elf. Other magic is present in the form of druid spells and sorcery rather than the clerical and wizardly magics of scholarship and learning.
The hunt is the lynch pin of wild elven society, and is surrounded with ritual and festivity. The inherent joy and creativity of the elves is expressed in music and dance, which often reflects the theme of the hunt. They disdain permanent art other than tattoos, and have only simple crafts. Great value is placed in hunting skills, and green elves are adept at moving unseen through the forest while tracking their prey and are fierce fighters. Many of the tribes are nomadic, but others live in simple permanent homes - whichever is best suited to survival in their particular wilderness.
They favour the warmer woodlands of the south - the Chondalwood, the Methwood, the Forest of Amtar and the Misty Vale. There have also been reports of wild elves in the forest of Tethir but their numbers are small. However as they are so seldom seen it is difficult to know for certain where they really are. They are almost never seen as adventurers.
