the 4th picture basically screams Eilistraee and Vhaeraun and hints that they chose to have him too alive, which is something I welcome.

That is indeed quite interesting. Thank you. :)

And as they over-extend themselves, they forget about actual *gasps* tactics! I guess it's a good thing for us as players that a race several thousand years old where you can live of up a millennium never learns from their previous mistakes. Still, it would be nice to see a campaign where the drow aren't trying to envelope the world in darkness for Lloth.

Well, there's Eberron if you like that kind of setting. However, a more traditional fantasy setting where the drow aren't brainwashed into being puppets in Lolth's hands and where a non neglectable part of them decide to grow a spine and make their own choices, instead of being forced in such a crappy life (even happiness is considered ''weak'' there, and this tells all....) would be nice. Drow are such a flat (and kinda stupid, tbh) ''for powah and teh evulz'' race as they are now, considering that their motivations can be all reduced to ''Lolth says/commands it, so it must be true/done!!''. The only things that managed to make them interesting (to me, at least) are Eilistraee and Vhaeraun, otherwise the drow cannot even be considered a charismatic example of villainous elves IMO.
