<t>"Ah, I...see." He replies, slowly, taking in all that the stranger- this "kkajit" says. "Dunmer- I've never heard us called that. We call ourselves Mori'Quessir, or simply drow, if you prefer. We are called a few other names- many of them LESS than complimentary, by other peoples. Our People have...

Re: Half Moon Inn: Part 5

<r>OOC: Actually, I've seen both versions, and I've gotten far enough in the game and visited most of the cities to have gotten the whole story- but using a Shout in a duel is hardly "fair and honorable", IMHO. I rarely use it myself except against dragons or other dangerous monsters or undead. Seem...

Re: Half-Drow

<t>Well, according to Daughter of the DRow, they do tend to breed true, with the children usually taking after the drow parent- however, the key words here may be "tend to". When breeding with other elves, they seem to look and take on the traits of drow, but with humans, there appears to be some di...

As for myself, I have joined the Companions, the Bard College (naturally!) and have gotten as far as going after the horn for the Gray-Beards in the main quest. I tend to wander around a lot, picking up side-quests...

Re: Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue

<t>Lol, they have come a long way from the "kiddie" fare of the sixties and earlier! There are some very complex, and often very mature stories now-a-days. Lots of tough ethical decisions, relationship issues, etc, etc,. One of the things that got me into them (and the first comic book that ever mad...

Re: New character on the drawing board...

<r>No worries, that's why I use the female name for my user name- Alystra (it's misspelled in my profile- OOPS!) is another character of mine, a half-drow bard/blade dnacer, also of Eilistraee. But Lothir is my fave PC, as he's one of the most fun to play. I'd have to say my second fave is Beznik Bo...

Re: Living on the surface

What book was this in? I've read most of the FR drow material, from 2nd ed and 3.5, and I don't recall seeing this. Enlighten me, please?

Re: New character on the drawing board...

<t>Actually, Millek, I'm a she/her, and Lothir is not from Tamriel, but from my own HB world called Asharra. He is from a kingdom named Argonia (if that is what had you confused), but it's not the same one from Elder Scrolls, it's a group of drow-ruled pirate islands in the eastern sea of my setting...

Re: Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue

<t>Actually, since it is a shared world, FR has a lot in common with comics, particularly the fantasy genre of comics. In fact, Devil's Due does the D&D/FR line of comics and graphic novels currently, and they are pretty good. Even if you're not a fan of comic books, you might want to check them...

Re: Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue

<t>I agree that I'm not overly fond of the Ao angle in this, but I'm also going to assume (until proven one way or another) that they will expand on it in some way that makes some sort of sense, much like how the original pruning was done in the Avatar series. Perhaps this might play a part in the n...

Re: Growing older and cynical

<t>This is my take: Ogrim, like you, I'm in my 30's, and have started to feel a bit the same. BUT!! There IS a silver lining even to this. There are some things I use to remind myself that ALL people matter, and that ALL dreams are possible, even those we think are out of reach. They are: <br/> <br/...
