The Elves-
There are many different writing on the originality of the 
Elves. The problem with that is; the elves themselves aren't sure of their exact origins because, some say all was lost in the dawn of time. Others have their own opinion, where their forefathers origins came from. It's almost impossible in my opinion because there are so many different races of Elves, just like any race of the humans.The Elves are a quiet people and lived a very long time ago. The few that are still living among us, well they are in the deepest forest, caves and ice mountains, to be a few places. They are in deep hiding and really don't trust us for good reasons in my option.  Even though they have said to have lived before time - they are still here today...
This is only one opinion of many that I have found in my studies of the Elves. But one thing that does not change in my thoughts of the mystery  around the Elves, fairies, dragons and all magical creatures that are Unseen! They are all real and live today, just not in the way that you might think.  Also I believe that the Elves and Faeries choose who they want to see them too... 

ELFIN LIFESPAN:
Elves lifespan is very different when it comes to the many different groups of Elves...as for their sexual maturity, this too is very different when it comes to comparing human/elf. But there are even some differences among the different groups of Elves too.
As far as the differences with each of  the different Elfin Life spans groups-being that there are so many of them, it would be too hard to, but all the life spans in just one group...but for the most part they all lived every long time... Some could be even in hiding today...
The few exceptions for these groups - Drows, Ghost Elves & possibility the Wood Elves  
PREGNANCY:
Well it's a curious thing about pregnancy with Elves because they are magical creatures. So it's going to be different, the question is how much different than a human mother...well they do not need to carry a fetus in their womb for nine months. 
The Elves on the other hand will carry the Elf-fetus for one year,  but hence fewer pregnancies.
Too bad we didn't' t have a chat with the elves on this subject thousands of years ago and we wouldn't be in such problems with our Planet... 

Family:
The families are quite different for each group of  Elves...
 The groups that are the most different from the surface- the elves of the  valleys, forests, mountains and even the snow elves...
Would be the Drows- 
Most of the surface world [Elves that live not in the dark caves etc.] know very little about the society of the dark Elves - Drows. Only a few exception's that have decided to live on the surface after living underground with the Drows or Dark elves for many years and these elves usually aren't the most friendly type.  
The Society of The Drow/Dark Elves is dominated by female Drow. Their Goddess is the Lolth the Spider Queen, males are subservient and slaves, warriors, or assassins. The Drow do have families but, not what you would think... In fact the drow society is frequented by having upheavals, relations among the drow are usually more complex than a typical family. The head of the family is a patron goddess of the drow- and is average families of the drow it is still a female drow. I go more into the life of the drow in other posts if you are interested... 

CRAFTS:
Poisons and toxins are favorites of the Drows, especially a powerful knockout poison made from a slippery black fungus that only grows in a certain area of the deep caverns called the 'Underdark'. Others poisons can be made from purple worms, scorpions and many different kinds of spiders. The Drow favor a mithral chain armor when it is available, but will always wear non-restrivtive armors that will not hamper their natural dexterity. They also favor fast weapons like rapiers and will choose hand  crossbows when possible, to deliver their poisons from a distance...

Magic:
It is common for a Drow to place magical symbols or glyphs outside their homes, which can ward off intruders. These home defense with the glyphs are only one of the three types of that can be used...the others are a ways of marking ancient ruins and sacred glyphs. The drow loves magical items of all kinds and all-powerful families give some enchanted items to those who we service them. 

THE ELVES:
The origins of the Elves, have always been a mystery...
How it is time for you the reader of this post to decide.. If  there was an origin or a beginning of the Elves... Do you Believe that the elves were here and Still here in 2013

Snow Elves-2013

Snow Elves
Well I though I would do another blog on a different race of elves. These Elf's are quite different than  all the other elfin race. For one thing they are quiet rare and very seclusive
They Have an Icy History ~


The rift between the Snow elves and their cousins the drows, stems from the very same war (the Crown wars) that drove the drow into the Underdark. 
During this time, the Snow elves were deceived into allowing passage for a larger profit of the drow through a mountain pass they controlled, not knowing this was happening at the time. So the Snow elf's claim that the drows were serving the Lolth and had recently declared war on their cousins elves.    While never formally condemned by their relatives, there has been a universally rift between them since the first Crown War. And the Snow Elves have been shunned by all their cousins due to what the drow had done to them. 
Snow Elfin History ~
The Snow elves are the taller of all the elfin race and are the more naughty than all the other elves or
even the humans! They sought once to dominate or to destroy the human men who try to enter their Icy Mountains, Valleys, and homes. This of course emulating a hatred for the snow elves forever & numerous centuries. 
During their age of seclusion, the snow elves have focused their studies on the fields of what would aid them in their survival in the harsh environments in which their fated they learned to dwell in. 
Thus their magic is particularly the magic of cold
& ice. While they still work as clerical in their mountains castles & underground community's under the mountain castles - they still study their magic of snow and ice. They are Druids and rangers in the community too, that are prominent to the higher positions within their clan. All the while, the Snow elves have become more reclusive and secretive as the lowland societies have grown unaware and indifferent to the snow elves. Some clans of these snow elves have even died out but there are a few in-hiding in the high mountains deep in the coldest parts on our earth. 
The Cold Clans ~
These clans were families that would live away from the mountains - Snow Elves. They would live in
small villages with dome shape huts. Dwelling in tight knit extremely isolationist families of clans of 3 - 30 members. Snow elves are very territorial and are hostile toward trespassers. There are other snow elfin clans, that live in small villages, consisting of 2 - 10 members. They are in dome shape huts of woven trees, covered with furs, skins and packed on the outside with layers of snow. Such villages house members of only one clan only, which lies generally in the center of these small villages.
Their territories average two square miles in size for each member of a clan in a village. These communities numbers of elves are no more than 30 elves and they can branch off into two more families. 
In early spring some clans will branch off from the main group and set off in search of new territories. This would prevent overpopulation and starvation in a rugged environment that offers no bountiful harvest for very large communities. Such branching off is now very rare event within the clans now... 
Snow Elves Life Style ~
The Snow Elves have developed classes as among themselves to help with running their communities


this would be either in the high cold mountain tops or in the valleys of the hut clans. 
They may be fighters, rangers, druids, wizards and thieves. All of these different professions within the different communities whether it be in the high mountain tops or the valleys of the hut clans are at different levels of skills, in each of their professions. 
These different levels have been given to the Snow elves as a tradition for centuries. 
The Males Traditionally are often the most fighters, rangers and thieves. 
The Females Traditionally are mostly the wizards.
The Druid's can be either male or female.
Snow Elves have no ability to work with metal, which is no small surprise as they use but dislike fire

and disdain all metal armor, including studded leather and even elfin chains. They prefer to ware leather skins or their own special made clothing which the Snow elves are known making in secret... They have the special ability to manufacture a strong and beautiful type of clothing that no other of their cousin kin has been able to recreate. This could be why they have been so secretive about it for centuries and even to this day!  What their secretive armor and clothing is: It's the hide of a 
White Dragon.
No other elfin cousin's have ever been able to do this type of armor or clothing. Let alone manufacture it among the thousands like that of snow elf's during their time of great numbers. Due to their carefully guarded secrets to the curing and treating this type of armor of the White Dragon. It also gave them great mobility,with these white leathery skins from the white dragon in the icy sub-zero temperatures that they live in. No one really knows how they are able to retrieve a White Dragon in order to make their special clothing and armor. That to has been a heavily guarded secret for centuries too. Even up to modern day.
Druids ~
Only the Druids within the clans are taught the secrets of this craft of manufacturing the armor and clothing. The Druids are taught the special ways of treating and curing the white hide of the(The Dragon). And they have guarded this secret to this day even from their own kin. 
All the manufacturing of the armor is done in their Shires.The Shires are also used for learning the higher type of magic and their kinda worship or Religion. 

Snow Elves Society ~
The Snow elves have been said to be truly the purest of all the elves. Dating back to the ancient ones!
This could be, because of their lineage and history with the drow. Also being being so secretive and purposeful seclusion race from all other races kin. 
They are the shortest lived of all the elves, on the average life span of 750 years being the oldest, but some have been known to live up in years to 900 to 1000yrs. This is considered incredibly ancient for a Snow elf.
Snow elves are the tallest of all the elfin race's. They generally tower over humans and all their cousin elf's .
The women will reach up to 6'4" height and the men can reach up to 7' in height, sometimes higher. Although tall, the snow elves a quite thin and extremely wiry and tough individuals . They gain dexterity and constitution but lose charisma when having to deal with all races including their own.
They have light brown, tan and sometimes very pale white skin. Their hair is white, pale blonde, icy blue, black and silver. Their eyes are usually deep blue but some have - icy white, icy pale blue and on   rare occasions there is a snow elf with deep black eyes. 

They strongly favor white clothing and bone jewelry , which they will traded for silver in the valley's

below the snowing mountains, from the Valley Elves.
Yes, believe it they do like the Valley elves - Odd you think after all I've been telling you about these secretive elves but yes they do!  
So let me tell you why!
The Snow Elves are best described as neutral with insufferably arrogant tendencies, with the exception of the valley elves, whom they tolerate and occasionally befriend. How isn't that interesting! I thought so... I mean they don't like any of their own race and us humans and now they seem to like or tolerate the Valley Elves but why? Makes me think I should do a blog on the Valley elves at some point.. I will have to look into that..
Well back to the Snow Elves..
From what I can figure out the Snow Elves have actively dislike all other races including their own and will go out of their way to make that fact know if given the opportunity -
The Drow incited was a kinda madness that came over the snow elf's and overwhelming odds - this
prevent the Snow Elves from attack any of the Drows. In my opinion, I feel that the drow had used some of their magic or black magic on the snow elf's in order to get through the mountain pass, 
that would help them retreat from the surface of the earth. And I am sure there were many other evil dealings they thought up of through their queen The Spider Queen.
  In addition to their characteristics, the Snow elves are
resistance to sleep and charm spells, they can move silently and can detection any type of a secret door. Snow Elves have developed several unique adaptations to their hostile environments.
All Snow Elves gain special powers that protect them from the freezing cold conditions. How? They can use their magic that protects them from the Icy cold chill of below 0 -zero temperatures and they can also use the chilly icy cold temperatures as a weapon too. They have the ability to set traps with a  90% success in providing food in their snowy mountain regions. I hope I've intrigued your curiosity about the Snow Elves. I hope that these beautiful artist images that I have found give the blog a more interesting look at the snow  elves too. The Artist of these beautiful images of snow elves and the landscape are simply brilliant and very talented.. 
I love putting beautiful art work with my blogs. We are very lucky to have so many amazing Artist in this world that can despite a world that is almost wipe-out..  Wendy
