History of the Drow

The Descent

The Lilytiri, or "Dark Elves" known for the depths of their depravity dwelt at one time in the mountains of the dwarven lands. A warlike race, the Lilytiri made war with their neighbors, including other elven tribes. Their raids and depravity forced the other races, to ally against them.

Defeated in a series of awe inspiring battles, the Lilytiri fled deep underground into caverns that held dark secrets and dark creatures. This event, marked the end of the Drow as a surface-dwelling race.

The Dark Wars

The Drows warlike nature did not change when they escaped their surface foes. In fact, they immediately began waring to establish territories in their new home. They began by stealing dwarven magical items, and using them against their previous owners

The Drow then fought among themselves, noble against noble, priest against priestess, for rule in their new realm. This all-out war ended amid great magical explosions that brought down the roof of the largest dwarven cavern they had seized. The ceiling collapsed entirely, burying many Drow and the shattered dwarven cities. The surviving Drow nobles gathered what people, slaves, and equipment they could seize, and fled deeper into the Underdark in search of places to dwell. "The Scattering" brought about the many rival, self-interested cities where most Drow live today.
