High Mountain Elves are often associated with the goats. For they
both share a love of and ability to climb. Additionally, while they are
vegetarians, as are most elfin, they none the less will eat nearly anything
edible and some things that others would not consider to be so. The High
Mountain Elves are also great skiers. Those two, mountain climbing and
skiing being among their favorite pasttimes.
While they are quite social and friendly, like most other elves, they
tend to live in small family dwellings scattered about the mountains.
Yet in times of need they gather together as one family to deal with any
and all emergencies.
However, like all things we write about various elfin, we are speaking
in generalities. The varieties of elfin and faerie life being so vast
that a book could be written on under each of these headings. Thus there
are also Mountain Elves who live in large groups in places normal folk
would consider monastaries, who pursue the spiritual life together and
who engage in mediation and rituals of magic to heal and help the world
and its populous evolve toward a greater understanding of thems'elves
