Note to PCs planning to make Drow.
No drow may ever start out as good. All newly created drow must start out as either neutral or evil. Only through RP can your drow become fully good. This race must be approved before it can be created. Approval is based on strength of the background story and future plans for the character, see Custom Race Approval System for Specialized Races.

Physical Characteristics: Also called dark elves, the drow have dark blue to black skin that resembles polished obsidian and stark white or pale yellow hair. They commonly have very pale eyes in shades of pale lilac, silver, pink, and blue. Drow also tend to be smaller and thinner than most elves.
Description: The Drow of Ysgard exist as a paradox to the norm of Prime Material World Drow. Shunned by their Prime World Kin because of thier decision to take a more moral high ground, they exist in a similar society on Ysgard, but without the associated bloodlust that most of the Prime Drow have until their anger has reached it's peak. They are more xenophobic than their Prime World brethren. Often social loners, they primarily just want to be left alone. Most drow do not possess the social skills necessary to survive unheeded on the surface. This coupled with their sensitive eyes and dark skin drives them to remain below the surface in their caverns, only to come out at night under the cover of darkness. This self imposed seclusion, coupled with their common lack of tolerance for bright lights and open spaces makes them feared and mistrusted by most other Ysgardian races. Considered evil by most, they are often hunted, berated, and attacked out of fear by many surface dwelling people. This has fostered in them a mistrust, anger, and at times intolerance of the surface dwelling races of Ysgard.
