Drow in 5E

My inspiration will be the Elves from Hellboy II: The golden army.


  1. In an attempt to strip the Tolkein out of my D&D as much as I could, I actually made the Hellboy elves my default elves. Alien otherworldly beings from another dimension with sap-like blood who turn to marble and crumble when they're killed.
