Drow is a player character race in 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons.[MM:276][FRPG:8][HotFK:246]

Racial TraitsEdit



  • Fey Origin: Your ancestors were native to the Feywild, so you are considered a fey creature for the purpose of effects that relate to creature origin.
  • Trance: Rather than sleep, drow enter a meditative state known as trance. You need to spend 4 hours in this state to gain the same benefits other races gain from taking a 6-hour extended rest. While in a trance, you are fully aware of your surroundings and notice approaching enemies and other events as normal.
  • Lolthtouched: You have your choice of either the cloud of darkness or darkfire power.[HotFK:246]
