Re: Found this Story

I don't remember writing that (though I have little doubt that I did). I'm fairly certain that I used that as advertisement for this site at the time, posting it on various forums.

Thank you for finding it. I much enjoyed reading it again. :)

Happy 2021!

2020 has been a strange year. A difficult year for everyone all around the world. Normally I spend the holidays with my parents. But that wasn't possible this year. We're fully intending to catch up on the celebrations later in the summer or whenever it's possible again. But I realised that this is ...

Re: How do you imagine Eilistraee's voice?

Interesting. To be honest never really considered how Eilistraee "sounds". There would definitely be a lyrical quality to her voice though, and the ASMR-type whispering would fit her well I think. I did a (really quick) search for some voices from various voice actors. There's a bunch of audiobook v...

Re: A suiter

She might be hurting still, but she also doesn't seem the kind to let that stop her. A free spirit who wouldn't let fear of what might be used against her keep her from enjoying life. I mean how would she convince anyone to come and live a free life on the surface if she herself is unable to live fr...

Re: Role play feats question

I think that the first question I would ask there is: what areas have the other players staked out? :) To me roleplaying is less about specific feats and more about what you do with them (and the opportunities that your DM gives). For example, as a self-described "combat god" I'd imagine that your c...

Re: A new lore video since our lady's revival...

He did a good video indeed, but it's tiresome to see people going on and on about how Eilistraee's misandrist etc... True enough. Even originally when there were only female clergy that always seemed much more a misunderstanding n the side of the worshipers anyway, with them all coming from a matri...

Re: Drow in Baldur's Gate 3

I was referring to the class description in the Reddit post you linked: "They value loyalty and the law" :)

It's my understanding that alignments are very much downplayed in 5E anyway.

Re: Drow Language (+ Quick Intro)

Hi Talaste and welcome to the forums. May you find a home of sorts here. :) The question of a more comprehensive, focused effort to a formal drow dictionary has come up from time to time. The translator has a generated drow dictionary, though that only includes the 'confirmed' words and not the addi...

Irennan, don't be too harsh on him. Not everyone has your deep grasp of Eilistraeen lore. ;)

Re: Drow in Baldur's Gate 3

Hmm, now there's an interesting option. Playing a paladin of Eilistraee (I've been considering what class I'd want to play). Definitely different from what I usually play. Not entirely sure how valuing law really fits with Eilistraee. But a Darksong Knight, Oath of the Ancients Paladin of Eilistraee...

Re: Drow in Baldur's Gate 3

Had a brief look at character creation and the opening area. Here's a screeny from character creation: http://www.eilistraee.com/f/bg3_drow2.jpg Couple of things to note there. First, that's pretty much the darkest skintone that I could find. It's part of the default skintone selection for drow (you...
