Drow

CREATION PT COST: 7

DESCRIPTION: Drows or "dark elves" are close relatives to elves, but represent a rival faction of the elf race; they were driven underground to live in the bowels of the earth after long and bitter civil war with their elf brothers and sisters. In the universe of the Lost Unicorn, drows usually stand approximately 5 feet tall, weigh between 80 and 120 lbs, and can live in excess of 1,200 years. Drows have long, tapering fingers and are skilled at creating unusual clothing and weapons. Drows typically dress in black garments and have a preference for fine mesh chain mail or armor. They are able to use a variety of weapons, but usually prefer darts, javelins, daggers, maces, or bows. Drows inhabit large shadowy cities, and their society is organized into opposing noble houses that are all constantly jockeying for
power and prestige. It is not uncommon for drows to keep slaves, for they believe that the strongest individual should rule. Drows have remarkably high skill maximums but they tend to start with lower stats.
