Social structures and hospitality towards strangers vary significantly from tribe to tribe. Elves will often show friendliness when encountered, though if outsiders come too close to their settlements they can find themselves threatened to turn around by a decently sized party of pursuing elves. They often shadow intruders from far outside the immediate habitat and indirectly try to lead them astray. Should new settlements of races deemed dangerous to the forest or its inhabitants arise, elves will encourage their removal by using any means available.

Elves usually welcome the company of their own, but some seem aloof to other races. In contrast, if a member of another race saves the life of an elf (not a very common occurence at all), they will enjoy great esteem among that tribe of elves and their friends. The elf whose life was saved will take it upon himself to assume responsibility for the safety of the rescuer until he has repaid the debt, and will remain a friend for life.

Elves love to celebrate, and they have festivals as often as they can find a reason. These festivities involve great amounts of dancing, singing and storytelling. The portions of the food served are considered small by other races, but the quality of the food can only be described as exceptional. If an outsider were to witness an Elven festival, he would surely talk about it for the rest of his days, and would find himself quite uncapable of enjoying lowlier forms of entertainment.

Elven society tends towards matriarchy, with queens far more common than kings. The Dark Elves of the underground are easily the strictest in this fashion, keeping males out of any position of importance.
