Re: First Time I Ever Saw a Drow (comments)

Ahh, I misunderstood you, then. Yeah, I believe many priestesses of Eilistraee would appreciate Orin's presence--granted, some are converts and probably still stuck up with the baggage of coming from a Lolthite, but many would enjoy his crazyness and the kind of good chaos (not the strife that pries...

Re: First Time I Ever Saw a Drow (comments)

The High forest sounds like it will be the closest to where he'd be. I originally thought that one day he'd wind up near The Promenade, helping free slaves from Skullport, but I think that I eventually want Orin to find his way to Raven's Bluff, as I believe that the timing would allow for him to b...

Re: First Time I Ever Saw a Drow (comments)

From the top of my mind, in the North (1310 DR), Eilistraee has shrines in Ardeep, near Waterdeep (he could meet Qilué herself there), in the High Forest (Wildwinds coven, a large community), and near Silverymoon.

And yeah, I'm grateful that you joined us!

Re: First Time I Ever Saw a Drow (comments)

I should say too, that I pretty much wrote this for you all here on the forum and I suppose for myself. I'd thought that I might be able to adapt it to one of my own fantasy worlds, but after talking it over with my lady and a some others, I feel that this story belongs to the Forgotten Realms, jus...

First Time I Ever Saw a Drow (comments)

Thanks for sharing your story with us, @Orin; as I said in our email exchange, I really enjoyed it, especially the scene with the prostitute, or Nelgred's reaction, and Eilistraee's empathizing with Orin.

Re: Music, music, music...

Tried this game a few years ago, but didn't like it. Still, they have really good art and music teams working on it, and some nicely written characters. This is one of their music videos (I love the violins at around 2:03) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF5Ddo9JdpY There's an instrumental remix, wh...

Re: Chosen

I don't believe that there are official stats for the Chosen of Eilistraee template. There were fan-made stats for chosen of each deity back on the WotC forums, but since WotC killed the forums, all of that went lost :( Maybe somene here still has those templates, though. EDIT: here they are, saved ...

Re: GRIS

It's still blatant censorship to me, as you said, it's just fucked up and ridiculous.

Anyway, if you can find some time, I warmly recommend playing this--as I mentioned, it's really short, so it shouldn't take much away from your to-play list.

Re: GRIS

I also wonder if this isn't how Eilistraee can sometimes feel about her mother. Lolth is basically a different person from the Araushnee that she knew; perhaps, Eilistraee feels as if she couldn't remember anymore her mother's face and voice; perhaps she feels like she lost something big and preciou...

Re: Music, music, music...

This is the soundtrack of the GRIS game that I've talked about in the other post. I found it particularly beautiful and poignant.

GRIS

I've recently played a game called GRIS ( https://store.steampowered.com/app/683320/GRIS/ ). It's very short (3-4 hrs), but it's one of the most moving pieces of art I've ever experienced. The game is about a little girl trying to overcome the pain of having lost her mother. The suffering has broken...

Re: Eilistraee art

IMO, the muscles and breasts are a bit too prominent for an elven body. Aside from that, it's pretty cool, thank you for sharing :)
