so i have been reading about how some readers hate the over use of elves and i was just thinking about how hard i have worked on my elven cultures over the years and would like some opinions on what people think. I am not going to go into deep detail just a basic over view to get feed back.
So my elves were created by their elven god who gave them their own continent to live upon. My elves are immortal to the point where time does not touch them but can be killed by the sword. As being immortal beings they have a different perception of what is important in life giving them a wiser feel but not exactly true wisdom greater than the other beings. I have also given my elves the ability to will themselves to die if they grow tired of the world. They basically can stop their body from living without having to commit suicide. The great spirits saw fit to teach the elves all their wisdom for they favored the elves. Though this caused a rift in the elven culture as they tried to impose certain ideas on others claiming their way of life was better. The elves broke apart into 5 separate nations with the original slowly dying out. One nation of elves hates another so much as to the point they refuse to help the heroes when they align with them and actually set out to kill the heroes and all the other elf nations as they join them.
it is rare for elves to value love as they have pretty much however long they want to find it. It is even rarer for any elf to love a human. I have no elf/human romance in my current novel. Just would really like some feed back there is a lot more.
