Which raw materials would elves make for ordinary materials?


This is probably a silly question, but have you considered inventing a material? Or would you prefer to stick to a combination of fantasy (Elves) and real-world constraints (building material possibilities)?

(My apologies if I've missed something in the thread that speaks to this, by the way.)

I'm not at all sure what's being asked here. A raw material is by definition a material that is not made. So how are elves (or anyone) to make a raw material? And if they can *make* it--leaving out the modifier "raw"--then you are free to have them make anything you please. Make it up, put it into your textbook, and away you go.

Let us know what you've come up with!
