The Quiet Folk are a gentle and peaceable tribe if left undisturbed. Because they have lived for so many thousands of years in the depths of the earth, they know the hiding places of all ores and precious stones. They give gifts in staggering generosity to their favourites. They know the healing properties of all plants and stones and are so skillful in their application that they are never sick. They have been known to throw temper tantrums upon hearing the sounds of church bells, drums or farm machinery, and become violent if the Church is even mentioned. A home for them is under houses, barns and hill mounds, and occasionally in caves.. strictly subterranean elves.
