Second Darkness Pathfinder drow dice from Q-WorkshopDrow are soon to make their appearance in my Riddleport campaign. They are part of The Great Game being played out in the background as the characters struggle for fame and power in the pirate city.

To help me GM the dark elves I created the following tables and references. Maybe they would be useful for your campaign too?

Following are tables I crafted for drow generation.

  • 100 Names – So I do not need to look them up during games
  • 20 Roles – To help flesh out the drow contingent (all warriors and priests gets boring) and theme individuals until it comes time to create stat blocks for them
  • 12 Pets – One way this faction will seem and play different than the other Riddleport groups
  • 10 Ambitions – Fast motive creation
  • 8 Habits Of Successful Drow – To help me figure out there approaches to problems, especially ones the PCs create
  • 6 Drow Weaknesses PCs Can Take Advantage Of – To inspire non-combat gameplay
  • 4 Drow Sayings – Check out the link; I just picked four I liked to help me roleplay
