hello arath,here curufinwe,i'm new on this site.does the fact that Elves had really baffles you that much?you should remember that the Elven laws are not like mannish laws-elven laws do seldom deal as mannish laws do with property,with individualism.their main subject is the protection and caring -what may be called the stewardship of nature.this indeed makes the substance of Elven laws.the subject is enthralling and would require long hours of discussions and exchange.may Iluvatar illumine your mind!

Curufinwe should know the Elvish laws pretty well, he was the first Elf to defy them, was he not?
