These Elves commonly dwell in petrified forests - which in ages past, they claim, were their ancestral homes. The Painted Elves take their name from the nature of the wastes in which they dwell, but also from their habit of camouflaging themselves with pigments derived from the mineral deposits found in such places. Though they rarely see visitors - since petrified forests offer little in the way of treasure - Painted Elves are extremely distrustful of outsiders, and can turn on guests at the slightest provocation.
