A drow is a fictional race of dark elves in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game.
They are usually depicted as having dark skin, white hair, and red eyes, and living in the Underdark, a vast network of caverns and tunnels beneath the surface world.
They are often evil and worship the spider goddess Lolth, who encourages them to scheme and fight against each other.
However, some drow have rebelled against Lolth and her followers, and seek a different path.
A famous example of such a drow is Drizzt Do'Urden, a heroic ranger who has many adventures with his friends on the surface.
Some other facts about drow are:
- They have a matriarchal society, where females hold most of the power and males are often treated as second-class citizens.
- They are skilled in magic, stealth, and combat, and use various weapons and devices to gain an edge over their enemies.
Some of their common weapons are hand crossbows, rapiers, daggers, and snake whips.
- They have a complex culture and language, which is derived from the ancient elven tongue but has evolved over time.
They also use a form of sign language called drow sign to communicate silently or in the dark.
- They have many enemies, both in the Underdark and on the surface.
Some of their main foes are other races of elves, dwarves, gnomes, orcs, mind flayers, beholders, and demons.
