This volume is by far the finest and most complete information source concerning the drow elves! It contains character generation material, notes on innate abilities, and loads of info relating to drow culure. This volume also gives new spells, magical items, underdark monsters, and tables regarding drow-style names and listings of known drow houses and cities. Simply a must have.

A detailed journey through the drow world. The Drow of the Underdark is perhaps the only book which will give you precise details and also a lot of aid in creating a drow PC or NPC. Going through everything from drow history to magical items, the Drow of the Underdark is a must for all players. It's adaptability is unmatched yet, and is useable by all players.
Better yet, it has a cover unlike many of the other Forgotten Realms expansions. A black paperback cover inlaid with gold.

This book is very very cool. It has gods, and stats, and expanded information of Drows (underdark elves) if you wish to play a drow, this is a 200% must buy!

This is the best D&D rules supplement I have ever purchased. It contains so much information about the drow (dark) elves. It talks about their religion, their language, and a sect of drow that are good aligned. If you have any interest in ever including drow in your campaign this is the book for you. I use the drow- english dictionary in it all the time. It makes interesting puzzles for my PCs. Even when I am not playing D&D I use this book; it has some cool drow names that I like to use as names for some of my MUD characters. Without a doubt this is the most useful D&D book I own short of the Monsters Manual.

This book was an excelent compilation of the entire novel, showing the matriarcle society tht the drow lived in, the drawings in the book are magnificent, the shear beauty, and useability of this book should not be limited to DND it could also be viewed as a great view into a new society.

Drow Of The Underdark gives in-depth explainations of new drow spells, mythology, magic items, customs, socity, and much more all in this Forgotten Realms extension book. For those who like Drow, you MUST get this. Its companion is the boxed set Menzoberranzan, available via amazon.com

This is a fairly useful accessory by itself and a great companion for the Menzoberranzan boxed set and Complete Book of Elves. It goes into great detail about Drow ways, customs, etc, and I found this to be slightly boring.

I enjoyed a lot of the magical items it introduces, but didnt find it to be terribly useful for player characters.
