This is a fictional role play, in a Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) setting. Some things are hard to explain, in which I have provided links.
Ϣelcome to the Underdark; a vast subterranean realm inhabited be drow elves, aboleth, ilithid, and other strange, sinister creatures. It is a place where few humans, -or any surface dwellers for that matter- go, and from where even fewer return. Here, the inhabitants never feel the sun’s rays, or cool breeze. Nor can they taste saltwater air. Such things are… nonexistent.
The Underdark is a vast system of underground tunnels, caverns, and waterways. It spans the length of entire continents, and it’s farthest reaches cannot be mapped. It fact… It’s so large, that it may as well be an entirely different world just below the surface of ours. Enormous cities, and great powers lurk, hidden here.
Indeed, the most prosperous races have built entire societies. The greatest of these are the Drow elves, the Svirfneblin, and the Ilithids (Also known as Mind Flayers).
Most of the creatures of the Underdark have evil, corrupted, and power-hungry hearts. Their veins are engrained with magic, hate, and lust. Such as the Drow, Deurgar (An unintelligent race of subterranean dwarves), and the Ilithids.
Some are more like the human race. A wild card. Each person in and of his own self. Such are the Sverfneblin (Deep gnomes), and the Pech (A race of small people who are ‘one’ with stone).
Others yet are purely predators. Bent on one goal: survival.
However, those who rise to the top are those that are most power hungry, and the most willing to sacrifice anything, and anyone to get their own ways. The primary races? Drow and Ilithid. Those are the two you’ll need to worry about. For the most part… Just the Drow.
Ȥlomynsnost is powerful Drow city. It spans two hundred and sixty eight miles. There are seventy seven 'houses' there. Each house is run, and controlled by a Matron Mother. Each house has a place. Like a pecking order. There is the top of the city, and the bottom. Often wars are waged between houses to climb the social ladder.
Females have more status in a Drow society than males.
In the city there is such a thing as 'night' and 'day'. However they are called 'noc' and 'den'. There is no such thing as natural light in the Underdark. Most creatures rely on sense of smell, and hearing. However, many, such as the Drow, have developed an ability know as 'Darkvision' which allows them to see when there is no light present.
In Zlomynsnost, a fungi grows along all the cavern walls that emits a purple-blue glow. In the den it glows, and in the noc it does not. Thus, the Drows' day and night.
The Drow worship Lloth, the Spider Queen. Also know as the Lady of Chaos, and Demon Queen on the Abyss. The Drow dedicate their lives to her. And female Drow are given the 'privilege' of becoming her priestesses. The males are often given the privilege of beings sacrificed to her.
ζife for you... isn't exactly pleasant. You're just a slave in the Drow city Zlomyslnost. You're expected to follow every order. And every whim. You are not to question anyone. You are not to speak for yourself. As a matter of fact, you are not allowed to think for yourself. You are allowed to obey. That is your task, to obey. You're not even a Drow Elf. You may have been born there, or you may have been captured in a surface raid. You might be a deep gnome from the city only a few leagues away, you could be a human, or you might be a sylvan elf, stolen from the surface. Who, and what you are is almost endless. Either way, life is torturous. And there is no exaggeration there.
Ɍebellion... something that is far from your mind. After all, life is most painless when you act mindlessly. Simply acting out your part in the household you are slave to. But perhaps the time has come to end this mindlessness. After all, wouldn't you risk your life for a chance at freedom? Or, you can always pick the safe path... Click the back button. Doom yourself to forever being enslaved.
After all, the city is hundreds of miles wide. Thousands of Drow, equipped with magic, and skills that you can't imagine, are... Everywhere. The only exits are guarded by statues that are told to spring to life if anyone tries to enter, or exit. If you even whisper of escape, you'll be killed on the spot. Not to mention the dangers that await outside the city... Maybe it's worth it to continue a half-life of slavery...
Naw. You can join together, and escape. And perhaps, with some help from a... 'different' Drow, it won't be so impossible after all.
