Lolth-Sworn Drow[edit | edit source]
Raised by Lolth's cult in the city of Menzoberranzan, these drow extol the virtues of their corrupt and merciless goddess. Lolth marks her followers with bright red eyes so the Underdark will learn to fear drow on sight.
Seldarine Drow[edit | edit source]
Drow are the result of an ancient schism between the elven dieties Corellon Larethian and Lolth. The latter's treachery drove the drow into the Underdark, where they splintered into warring factions. Seldarine drow can be found seeking allies from all over Faerûn, aiming to settle their conflict with Lolth - and themselves - by any means necessary.
Religions[edit | edit source]
The Cult of Lolth[edit | edit source]
The much-reviled matriarch of the drow pantheon, Lolth holds sway over spiders, the Underdark, and the wicked creatures of the Demonweb Pits. Her primary goal is to corrupt all drow, transforming them into heartless cultists.
The Clergy of Eilistraee[edit | edit source]
Eilistraee is the goddess of good-aligned drow, beauty, song, and freedom. The Dark Maiden desire balance between all races, and struggles against her mother Lolth's corrupt aims.
