There is another series of books out about the drow called "The War of the Spider Queen". A quite interesting series with a different author for each book. They are based off of R.A. Salvatore's ideas. I have the only 3 out so far, as the others have yet to be printed. I have read them and they are quite interesting, they even go into the other drow minor gods such as Vhaerun. If you like reading about the drow, they are really good books to get.

If you are wondering, they do not follow Drizzt's life, If I remember correctly, he is not even mentioned in the books. It is after the war with Mithril Hall and the book focuses a lot on Quenthel Baenre. Id tell you more, but I fear I would be giving away the story.

3e Underdark

Post by Isaldur » Mon Dec 01, 2003 7:14 pm

There's a new 3e Underdark source book out however I found it lacking in many ways. Also be warned it uses information from the War of the Spider Queen series and reading some parts might spoil the books for you.

Although the Drow here are confined to worship of Lloth, that fact shouldn't necessarily preclude the IC knowledge of other Dark Elven gods and godesses. Here is a good page from WotC detailing the relationships in the Drow pantheon and their early history.

Drow RP tips

Post by Algon » Wed Nov 03, 2004 1:44 pm

I found a sit that had alot of info and tips on RPing a drow in an FK setting. Here is the link. http://www.angelfire.com/rpg/drowcampai ... gtips.html

This site also has some good info on playing a straight evil character.

*note-Hope it is alright for us to do this type of stuff.

I was thinking you might include the Evermeet novel in there because of it's telling how Lloth became who she is and her son and daughter and so forth...

After the post I placed in the Drow and the Surface thread I began to consider making a drow and I came across this site.

http://www.angelfire.com/rpg2/vortexsha ... names.html

Great site for drow names, best I've come across.

Hey everyone 8)

Saw that the *link* above that I posted no longer works, and decided to put another great drow web-site up. The one that has the drow names works perfectly fine though :wink:

Isn't worship of Seveltarm (Lolth's champion god, however you spell his name) considered acceptable for males?

Yes it is for male warriors. I believe it would fall under uncoded-deities to become a follower, 'help uncoded deities' can provide you further information about roleplaying and becoming a follower of an uncoded deity.

Below is a link with some more Drow (and other races) information that someone shared with me and I find quite useful.
