The Hill Elves naturally live on hills, although if truth be told they most often live within hills, much in the manner of Hobbits. The Hill Elves however, seldom live in solitary familes but much like rabbits share their warren in a tribal fashion. Similar to hobbits and dwarves they often tend to be short of stature though seldom stocky as both of those peoples usually are. And due to the amount of time spent underhill they are often very pale of complexion.

The Hill Elven were noted in the past for painting their bodies blue, sometimes silver, both as a protection of the sun for their fair skin and also as a means of mystifying mankind and others. Note the similarity between these folk and the blue skinned Krishna and other dieties of Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist lore. And the idea that many writers and artists have that we elfin have blue or silver skin most likely derives from this practice of the Hill Elves.

Because of a reputation for being a bit wild,they are alternately called Wild Elves and their magics are the "Wild Magics". The wild magics have a great deal to do with getting in touch with and trusting one's instincts and feelings. It is born of nature and the Earth which is why in part the Hill Elves like to live within the Sacred Earth.

Four ways lead from the hill...

You can climb the high mountains...
Mountain Elves
 
You can strive toward spiritual perfection...
Starlight Elves
 
Or you can help others realize the magic
within thems'elves...
