More Info on Elven and Dwarven Society

Well, just like the title says, I’m interested on where I could find more info on Elves and Dwarves as Luke and co. imagined them.

For Elves, at least, try this thread:

The works of JRR Tolkien.

It’s all between the lines of the lifepaths, dude. :smiley:

The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings (esp. the Appendices) and The Silmarillion were major sources of inspiration.

In Morgoth’s Ring, the 10th volume of The History of Middle-earth, there is a chapter entitled “Laws and Customs among the Eldar” — Several essays and legends on the Eldar, particularly mating and naming customs of the Elves, and Tolkien’s conceptions of the soul and body (Wikipedia).
