Drow in 5E

Now that I have had more time to look over the new players handbook I have a few choices to make. One of those choices in which races will be allowed in my games.

First up is the Drow, I have never seen the Drow as a good playable race. I actually find their inclusion in the PH to be more misplaced than even the Dragonborn or Tieflings.

Rather than just disallow the Drow as a playable race I have decided to replace them with another subterranean race of elves. And keep Drow as a villainous race of raiders and slavers that they are.

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