    "Known" Drow in the Flanaess

    So, i'm trying to put together a canonical list of individual Drow that have been encountered on the surface of Oerth. So far I have:

    Eclavdra Eilservs - Interplanar Supreme Drow mistressmind, originally encountered in the King Snurre's Halls.
    Edralve - Eclavdra's protege and Slave Lord of the Pomarj.
    Jawal Severnain - the head librarian at the Wizards' Guildhall in the City of Greyhawk.
    Tysiln San - First Protector of the Valley of the Mage.

    Any others?

    Rasgon, thanks for the response and sources, excellent as always...

    Jason, not every drow ever mentioned in canonical sources, drow that have actually been interactive on the surface...

    Im not sure what you mean? As you can see some early named Drow from the GDQ series were used in late '90s modules. Im not sure what others may have been used in Dragon or Dungeon. Im not sure who was used in Living Greyhawk.

    Better to have a list of all the named drow that might have been used rather than miss some because I stopped indexing in 2003.

    Jason, I mean that the point of the query is to narrow the list of all the drow to those that have actually interacted on the surface of the Oerth....So giving an incredibly long list of drow that have appeared in canon sources (up to 2002) does not tell me whether they fall into the category Im interested in (I.e. those that have interacted or lived on the surface, such as Eclavdra, Edralve or Kaquizel)...

    There is the raw data. First step in compiling your list.

    Jason's index is very useful. Most of my additions above came from looking through it and checking to see which ones were above ground. I ignored the ones sourced to D3, Q1, Dragon #298 and #300, and DG (Dead Gods) because all those sources refer to the Vault of the Drow.

    I have the Sources after 2003 for the index. if you want all the later stuff as well send me a PM (preferable in Canonfire Discord so i can attach a file). I have a newer version of the Index in Excel that you can filter by race.

    Those are some fine lists, Rasgon and Jason. Smile

    After reading your initial list, Kwint, I thought of Belgos (drow vampire). I noticed that Jason's index does not include a reference to Dungeon Magazine #119, 'Wrath of the Abyss'. This adventure puts Belgos (and Silussa) in a cavern very close to the surface of the Oerth, from which it may be assumed they venture forth onto the surface on ocassion. Thus, Belgos, being a drow vampire, may indeed be seen on Oerth's surface at a date following the events of D3, Vault of the Drow.

    I was considering the drow in Shadows Over Istivin as not yet surfaced with the exception of Gleodites. I think the five ebon skinned Elven corpses were the primary actors in Istivin for the EEE drow...

    Also, Drow of the Underdark (3.5 version) includes a number of drow characters located in and around Erelhei-Cinlu.

    There's also the half-drow, Shensen Tesseril, and the drow, Viirdran Daraqor, from The Shackled City Adventure Path.
