Drow of Empyrea?

Post by Havard » Mon Oct 09, 2017 10:12 am

Are there Drow on the continent of Aquaria? I wasn't quite sure about the origin of Drow on Greyhawk, but I was wondering if since according to Aquaria Canon, this continent is where all the demi humans came from, would the divide between surface and underworld elves have occurred when the race was still on Aquaria, or is that something that took place after they left the continent, meaning there are no Drow here?

Olve are... complicated.
They are longer-lived than most other races, and surface olve live in harmony with their environment.
The 'realm below' is the province of dwur, and they make much of their lordly control, but in reality many many other races dwell in the deeps. Drow are certainly known to the dwur, though topside rumors are rare, as the dwur do not openly acknowledge the struggles below.

Generally, use drow and other resources as you see fit. They can certainly exist below Empyrea, and rare individuals may even achieve Citizenship, given time and demonstrated cooperation with society.
