I have been trying to come up with the racial value for drow characters in preparation for a future campaign. Here is what I have so far. Comments?
Drow are very wary and are never surprised under normal conditions. They add +2 to their surprise rolls while underground.
Drow are very resistant to magic. The target value for their saving throw versus spells is reduced by 2.
Drow are very sensitive to bright light. In the area of a light or continual light spell they suffer a -2 to all attack and saving throws. This also applies if they are exposed to full daylight.
All dark elves can cast the following spells once per day; faerie fire, and darkness.
At 4th level, drow can also cast levitate and detect magic once per day.
