"...Deep in the forest the elves have a wonderful haven around a waterfall, producing the power to run the mill. Few men have ever been there, the place is secluded and though not excactly hidden, very difficult to reach. The terrain is hilly and steep and to get around with little effort, they ride on the Crilliwyns. These strange creatures live in the surrounding mountain forests, and hundreds of years ago the elves discovered that they were easily domesticated and have a gentle temperament. Their limber feet and legs are perfectly adapted to climbing around among the rocks and roots of the forests. But of course the elves here rely on ordinary horses as well. They are much faster and more enduring..."
