Mystic Wood elves are a strange race. It is not clear if they are related to elves; they have elven ears but also small horns on their foreheads, pointing more to a satyr parentage.
Mystic Wood elves are very strong believers in freedom, and as such are opposed to slavery and anything that removes free will. This does not mean that they object to the effect in and of itself. For instance, a Mystic Wood elf may not object to someone taking a Sleep effect if they requested it, or the use of a Dominate effect to free someone from a Charm. Players may choose to play this aversion to greater degrees if they so desire.
Similarly, a Mystic Wood Elf may suffer under the same racial prejudices of any other character and define some creatures as “inhuman” and therefore have no problem with the use of these effects on them. It is inconceivable that any Mystic Wood elf would ever knowingly take advantage of another person against their will, although there are many spirited debates among them as to whether it is fine to do so against obvious enemies and monsters.
Mystic Wood elves are innately curious beings, and they enjoy learning a great deal. Insofar as they are somewhat preoccupied with learning and trying new things, they enjoy craft making off all sorts. Those who are masters of their craft are highly regarded in Mystic Wood elf society. In general, the gaining of knowledge of all types is a habit and preoccupation of all Mystic Wood elves. Some enjoy specializing and mastering one art first before moving on to the next thing, but dabbling in many different skills is also generally acceptable in their culture.
Mystic Wood elves also tend to have a somewhat hedonistic view of life, indulging actively in wine, women/men, and song. They possess no cultural taboos in regard to sex and gender preference, as long as everything is completely consensual. Individual Mystic Wood elves may vary from prim to promiscuous, based upon their character concept. Mystic Wood elves have no official documented life span.
For all intents and purposes, they seem to be immortal. They never seem to die of old age, but instead of accidents, battles and other causes. However, remember when starting a new Mystic Wood elf character that you should probably be quite young, for otherwise you would have gained many skills. Mystic Wood elves tend to share their possessions with others who may need them, and do not understand the preoccupation with money that other races have. As long as they have enough to get by on and lots of friends, they are happy.
