Drow

Drow are infused with the magic of Lolth—the Queen of Spiders—and the Underdark, an underground realm of wonders and horrors rarely seen on the surface above. They are at home in shadows and, thanks to their innate magic, learn to conjure forth both light and darkness. They tend to have stark white hair and onyx skin of many hues. Their eyes can be many different colors; Red, white, purple, green and gold all appear with red being the most common.

The society of the drow is a matriarchal one in nature, in reverence to Lolth. From the very beginning of their lives, they are plunged headfirst into a system of politics, deception, manipulation, cruelty, and ruthlessness. They are taught that the surface elves scorned them, that Lolth saved them, and that it is their duty and their pleasure to enact their due revenge upon their elven kin as frequently as possible.

Darkvision

You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions, negating the Perception and to-hit penalties present at nighttime and in the dark areas of the world.

Drow Magic

The influences of Lolth are potent in your blood. You know the Dancing Lights cantrip, and can cast the Faerie Fire spell once per day.

Fey Ancestry

You are immune to magical sleep effects.

Lolth's Web

Having lived your life in the cruel society of drow, you are trained to be keenly aware of your surroundings and to deceive others. You are proficient in Deception and Perception.

Trance

Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that non-elves do from 8 hours of sleep (a long rest).

Drow, through their connection to Lolth, have lost the ability to peer back into the memories of their past lives, though they can still experience the memories of their current life.
