Sylvan/Wood Elves, “Sylvantiatus”

Tribal. Frequent fights between other wood elf tribes, especially as the forest rapidly undergo changes from the climactic changes.

Wood-Elf tribes are very tribal.Usually only one tribe per major forest, but sometimes fights between 2 or more tribes for control of one forest/area do occur.

Generally the edge of a forest, transition of trees/foliage, river, or mountain, tend to separate realms.

Just because you are wood elf in one forest, does not mean you are liked by other wood elves of another forest.

Other than fights over resources and woodlands, sylvan elves keep to themselves.

They protect their borders, but usually allow established multi-cultural roads to pass through unmolested, as long as those passing through are respectful of the woods they pass through.

Even if from an opposing tribe, unless an opposing military force, will be left alone as long as those passing through “behave”. This is an unwritten rule of most wood elves.

Sylvan elves are subsistence-based, living off the land. This means they are rarely in very large groups.

One tribe can span many villages, but are usually contained within a single forest body.

They do not keep much in the way of written records, passing their heritage through songs, similar to the Edda.

Sylvan elves are very tribal and live off the land.

All of this means that they are rarely in very large groups.
