Thread: The drow
         >>
A long time a go in the glittering caves, there was a family of the drow they look like elves but with black skin and white hair. One day they had a great fight with the dwarfs who also lived in those caves, unfortunately the dwarfs lost and the caves belong only to de Drow right now...
The matron of the drow called Silvaghar 'tel Zaughym was a very mighty wizard she is one of oldest drow there is on middle-earth and nobody will ever win of her...
Welcome to PT!!! Hope you have a good time here. The drow eh... good story material.
Welcome to PT! This looks like it could be an interesting RPG, cya around!
Ooh, yeah! Welcome to PT! R. A. Salvatore's writing, eh? Great stuff!!!! I just love Drizzt!
thanks a lot i hope i would be a good RPG.. yeah R.A. Salvatore has made the story about the drow
i dont really like Drizzt, Dinin is much cooler
Well i know something about Drizzt and nothing about Dinin, but im familiar with the drow alltogether. So....shall we start this RPG? You should beter write a good begining so we can all join in Silvaghar tel' zaughym. And could you.......please chose or assign a shorter name for us to call you? This one is just to complicated. Thanks
i have no idea what the heck a drow is, but I'll get the books and join in when i figure it out.
Arwen, a drow is a race of dark elves from some of the Dungeon&Dragons adventures. They have a cool past, starting with their rebellion for what they were banished under the earth. Because of that their skin turned dark and their hair white. They are maybe the most hated races on the world(expecialy by normal elves). They now live in great cities in the Underdark( a neverending complex of caves that stretches under the entire surface of the world) and are in constant battles with the dark dwarves, illithids(mind flayers and similar creatures) and other subterrenean races.They have a special affinity towards spiders because of their greatest and most frequent diety, Lolth. They also live with highly developed magics that they have mastered and their societies are nearly all ruled by the females ( here from the matriarch this thread maker was reffering too). Read more about D&D and youll find more great and exciting facts about the dark subterrenean race, knows as .....the Drow.
I hope thats good enough for now.
lol, thanx Ethy...and thought it was a book, oh well, thanx, i'll read up.
Wow you know a lot about D&D, Eth! I want to learn how to play it!!!!!
I'd better look up some of these things too! Want to be educated I do!
Heh.Thanks Acheron. Iv been playin for some time, but it seems ill have to stop for some time, cause my friends dont have the time
. But all you need are a few good friends and someone with some knowleadge already about D&D. I had the luck of becoming friends with a older guy that was playing it for years and he taught us all. If you want to read D&D books, well theyr pretty expensive so you might want to find some CD with all the books on it, scaned books. Not really legit, but im just telling you whats out there.
So is this story going to begin??
Good question. And if you want to learn all about and Drow and Drizzt and Forgotten Realms(TM), just read the books! I love 'em!
Well, I have absoloutly no idea what you're talking about but it sounds cool so I'm in. I'll check in later to see if anything has gotten started. Another adventure is always good!
Hm yahyah I'll join up...as soon as it starts...oO
I dont think this should be a LOTR related adventure/thread......And i dont think its gona start. Unless......i start it.....
Gah, Ethy, I'll change it if needed!
Well, if anyone's going to start the thread, it's you. You're da expert so fire it up!
Where do we start....Lets see.....
Ill wait for a few more people and then ill try and come up with something.
I would join, but seeing as I have no idea what any of this Drow, D&D stuff is...I think it migt be better if I didn't :P
Oh come on.I've never heard of it, but this is where I'm gonna learn.Besides, I'm sure the majority of the players don't know what this Drow is either...
Most likely none of us will know what we're talking about when you think realisticly...
I dunno, I might, but I think I'm gonna wait a bit and learn a lil bit more before I join.

Me as well. I'm in the same position as Arwen (unless I already posted a profile o.O) and I'll post it when I think of everything!

What's with all the elves? Where are the drows? I guess I'll going to be a sub-terranian creature then. If I am a dwarve, I'll be killed very soon. If I'll be a drow, then I don't know who I am, because I don't know anything about them. Ah, what the... I'll be a drow.
But seeing there are so many elves already, there is going to be a big war between us, and I will be killed also. Doesn't matter.
Oh yeah, I should notice, this is my first RPG, so please be a bit gentle on me.

Anyone who does not know anything about the DROW, please read my third post in this thread (page 1). If any more questions arise, i shall be happy to anwser them (at least ill try).
I see we have a lot of elves here and only one drow. So ill be a drow as well...
Looks: normal for a Drow. Black skin, white hair, and fair looks (for a drow that is). Dressed in black travelling clothes and a black cloak.
Weapons: 2 longswords, their hilts are decorated with a range of spider motives.
Past: not much known. He comes from a smaller drow city in the Underdark. He has spent some time on the surface, so he isnt so affected by daylight any more.
Ah,wonderful,when do we start?
And if the need be I can trasnfer to a Drow to even out the elves...
eth is not the only one who knows of the drow if you need information ask me and I will tell also if anyone wishes I will delete the drizzt I created and go with the real Drizzt Do'Urden so that you can all learn of him as I roleplay him as he is in the book.
Yes, when do we start?
And I'll switch to a drow if needed
Arrghh!! Lets just begin!! Ill post a start soon enough....
What do you say to this........
We all start in a pub in Baldurs Gate (a nice big city, from the Forgotten Realms(aD&D campaign world)).
Everyone who is a drow is covered in a dark cloak, so they dont attract unwanted attention to their skin color. We all wind up at the same table because its happy hour, and its crowded. (what do you think?)
sounds good to me Eth...Let's get this thing started!
Drizzt sits at the table sipping an ale and looking at the others at the table. His eyes glitter softly as if there is a joke that only he sees. "Greetings everyone." He slurs as he speeks making it seem that he has had a few too many ales.
Nerthis looks ad Drizzt, nods as a greeting, and then all of a sudden asks: "What's so funny? You are laughing I can see it in your eyes."
Awating the reply of Drizzt, he empties his ale with a sigh.
Aspen smirked under her hood at the laughing man and took another sip of wine. It was certianly crowded and any conversation seemed interesting.She set her glass down and listened.
Nym watched the people sitting with him at the table. "Well well...iv never seen so much drows in one place other than the Underdark. What are you guys doing here anyway?" he asked the other drows at the table. He himself wore a large dark cloak to hide himself. Drows were not so welcome in the above world. Seeing that nobody wanted to go first, he spoke "I myself am just passing by. Im on my way to visit someone, some kind of a buissnes meeting, if you know what i mean."
Alar was sitting quietly, head bowed down so her face couldn't be seen. Next to her sat a hungry dwarf, shouting for some food.
"Is the service here always this slow?!" he shouted. "Certainly there's gotta be-"
He was cut off by a patron bonking him on the head with an empty bottle. The dwarf, Bronkt, fell backwards out of his chair. Alar picked him up quickly and sighed lightly, eyes still downcast. She kept her companion up, sipping some ale quietly.
"We are just passing through," she said softly, the others barely able to hear her.
"Whats so funny you ask? well I'll tell you it's that if half the people in this tavern knew what some of the people at this table were I would be havving to fight." He sounds hammered with the slurring of his speech. He leans back sipping his ale but those who have been keeping track will notice that he has only had the one ale all afternoon and he has been acting like he is sipping at it.

Nym nodded to Drizzt. And with a grin he said "I agree. Make sure nobod shouts "bar fight", because then we just might be revealed." he said with a wink.
