The City of Iniquity
0 - 50
Eons ago, dark elves emerged from the elven race that lived within the Realms' valley. Shortly thereafter, the elves found themselves in great distress - torn between those following a path of chaos, and those maintaining a life of righteousness. A great, painful war broke out and scattered destruction over the centuries. Magicks of immense power flew back and forth as each alignment fended for themselves, and many a brethren slain. The valley was left in turmoil, drenched in the flesh and blood of the elven kind.
In the end, the good had prevailed. The dark elves were forced from the valley's surface and driven deep underground, where they created a new civilization - bleak, lightless caverns and tunnels of the underworld. After a prolonged amount of time shielding themselves from the natural light of the world, their skin became black as night, hair silver as the moon, and eyes red like the raging fire burning within their souls. The drow were born, filling their days with havoc and station within the city in which they were forced into...the city that they had created...the City of Iniquity.
