Alright, you'll be second priestress of Lloth (together with Zahkarra) if that's agreeable with you?

PS, I'll be away for now.. so any questions, PM me and I'll get to them in the morning :) Thanks

Not a problem as far as the eye goes. It would be kinda ugly as an advantage in a drow city (he was a patroller in the original concept) with all the spying and such going on.  Tone it down as you want/need, as long as it isn't a disadvantage for him I'm pretty happy.

Same with the weapon. I may go back through the weapons books and try to find something else interesting. The character was made long ago, and so many nasty toys have been added since then  ;D

Will do, the eye will just have an improved infravision spell on it (just like a real drow eye), so he'll be able to see normally. As for weapon like, just post it here what type of weapon you would like (No snake whips though, priestress ONLY) and we'll get to it ;)

Um well, I would be intrested in playing a female wizard but I havenīt read the Trilogy or any books of the author, I guess Iīd have to study the setting first.

Typically only males become wizards, since females are focused on being priestesses as part of the theological matriarchy that governs the drow. But, there are precidents for female spell casters.

@Idachan, Rayve13 is Right, most of the time females are inducted to become high priestress in the service of Lloth, males are usually reserved to be fighters or wizards. But it is indeed not completely strange for a female drow wizard to be in 'effect', she would just have to act as a male to have gotten into the school of sorcere which could cause some 'side-effect's' with Lloth.

To semi-advocate on Ida's behalf, could she go with private tutoring, like Baenre's daughter in "Daughter of the Drow"?

And as far as weapons, I'd like the tridaent (though it can be a drow-made version rather than a sahaugin one) or a military fork, which they would have seen duregar and/or svirfneblin using.

 There wasa priestess that used a magical pitchfork. Shakti Hunzrin. She was Liriel Baenre's rival from the books, The Daughter of the Drow, Tangled Webs and Windwalker, of the Starlight and Shadow's series by Elaine Cunningham. Damned good books. There is also Qu'ellar (House) Xorlarrin. They are House famous for it's mages. Male and female mages. Often when a House has alot of females, the women will branch out to other classes. Most however choose, or have choosen for them, the path of Lolth and priestesses.

I knew I remembered the pitchfork/trident thing from somewhere! I only read "Daughter of the Drow," but it was good. The character's older than that, and I took the idea from a friend's human fighter.

 Xas. She sort of gave up the pitchfork when she became a high priestess (Yathtallar) and got her snakewhip.

Considering.... but... is it all Drow? Truthfully? While I can do evil and manipulative, I just prefer nicer characters. Perhaps a non-drow slave that was recently captured? Would a male aasimar necromancer be acceptable? (If we were using the alignment system, he'd be Lawful Good. Old character of mine I'm rather fond of.)

   Drow = evil.   Lolth priestesses= VERY evil.    Male assimar necronamcer= sacrifice to Lolth.

I would be intrested, I had toughts to play a male wizard/psion (you know the special PrC which combines arcane and psion studies? My char is that). Of course if we have female wizard, then we both are likely rivals but in sense I am 'superior' to her in Sorcerer thanks just being male student and plus I have some edge towards most other casters thanks for having psionic tricks ;).

Anycase, in heritage wise my char is matron mother's deceased sister's oldest son (sister which was killed century or two ago when present matron taked over the house after her mother died naturally knife on her back). Would our matron mother mind if I would be house leading mage and personal advisor (advisor I mean that matron sometimes ASKS a opinion from me and she asks most often from me)?

I was thinking a bit on the line of odd one out, perhaps she could be Zaerīs apprentice if he is leading mage for the house? A girl definently not priestess material but the house puts up with her because of her talent that Zaer is supposed to hone and train.

Strife, I've only read one of the Novels. most of my knowlege comes from tabletop and LaRP ..I'm sure you could quickly pick up the idea.

Come play Drow ...join the dark side. :)

Alright I'm confused a little. I get priestesses can have snakewhips as weapon, but can they have anything else? I might have to reread the books again, for the houses and what not.

As you can read, Briza (Malice's daughter) had a mace as well as a weapon. Plus most drow women are trained fiercely in both mental domination spells, summoning spells and damage spells creating a rather vicious clerical type of character ;)

@ Zaer, Ida-chan

I would consider the choice for a drow female wizard open then, perhaps you (Zaer) could tweak your character a little to play as a part-time patron as well. It would have enough effects, a Matron mother as your bedmate plus being a master in sorcere makes your character pretty vicious to deal with. As long as he's drow I'm cool with it ;)

@ Ravye13, at least that is if you want to become full time weapon master, otherwise you will stay to half/half like you are now. Ps, using a war-trident is quite ok. I've reviewed the idea and Baerne's son in The Dark Elf Trilogy used a spear, so a trident wouldn't be so far fetched.

Would a male aasimar necromancer be acceptable? (If we were using the alignment system, he'd be Lawful Good. Old character of mine I'm rather fond of.)

Well.. that would limit him to being tortured and being sacrificed to Lloth pretty darn fast, pretty sure that's not what you want. As we'll be playing mostly Drow, offcourse you COULD make him a lawfull good drow (Drizzt) but as said in the opening post do not count on your life to be a piece of cake *Smirk*

(Forgot your post.. silly me)

Hmm, I'm sure we can help you along quite well. You can start out as secondboy, which would result in a slightly less 'pressing' appointment in the family then Elderboy.


Any more questions, feel free to ask. Ps, thanks for all whom have already answered some of the pending questions... sure you'll make house D'nachsor very.. 'intresting' ;)
