Drow of the Underdark (3.5)

Selected Option:

Elegant, Dark, and Deadly.

Deep below the surface realm of the Underdark, the drow conspire to subjugate the world in the name of their dread spider goddess. No other race can match their malice and cruelty. No other race holds a candle to their ruthless depravity and thirst for power. Their cities are dark and twisted cradles of treachery and corruption, their myriad schemes a tangled web that snares all who defy the will of Lolth.

This Dungeons & Dragons supplement presents the definitive treatise on the dark elves.

Within these pages, you'll find insights into drow culture and society, rules and options for drow characters, new equipment, prestige classes, feats, magic items, and monsters, as well as a detailed exploration of the fabled drow city of Erelhei-Cinlu.

For use with these Dungeons & Dragons core books:

Player's Handbook Dungeon Master's Guide Monster Manual

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

So any difference from 2E version?

There is a difference. When Ed Greenwood wrote _Drow of the Underdark_, he focused mainly on the Realms drow. This one is more Greyhawk based. For instance, the religion in this book is more monotheist in structure (focuses on Lolth). While Ed writes about the drow pantheon.

I see somebody on ebay selling one and pages 153/154 seem to be messed up. They butt up against each other and they shouldn't be on the same spread. The page numbers are also facing in instead of facing out. Looks like an earlier page is missing and the flow was messed up on some of the pages.

It would be nice to get a physical copy of this, as current copies are selling for in excess of $176 no matter where you look. Please.

We here at DriveThruRPG don't determine what products are available in print form. We recommend you submit suggestions to Wizards of the Coast on the D&D FaceBook page - or via their Customer Support page here -

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
