Though that would be amusing...

Instead of "boredom" being the number one killer of Elves it's "living in cliff cities".

The entire race also has On The Edge, so I don't doubt that reckless behavior is a common killer, just not typically as a result of walking from the house to the corner store.

I thought it would be a kind of neat variant of the "elves are in tune with nature" theme to make them adrenaline junkies mimicking our snowboarder or rock climber culture instead of hippie environmentalists.

I do hope they also have Daredevil, which means they mess up unnecessarily risky situations less often than they do 'normal' situations.

I was about to say, the Cliff Elves are probably selectively breeding for it, as those are the ones most likely to come back with the tales.
