Essential Linkage: The Drow - Dungeons and Dragons' dark elves - are coming to DnD Online, but that's just the tip of the evil iceberg...
We've mentioned a few times now the rather curious melding of worlds in the upcoming update for Dungeons & Dragons Online, Menace of the Underdark. It appears those pesky Drow - classic villains that they are - have managed to tunnel from the Forgotten Realms all the way to Eberron. How... well, it's magic. It doesn't matter how.
But what is interesting is that this Drow push is part of a whole new focus on the Drow across the entire Dungeons and Dragons pen-and-paper line.
Gaming blog Robot Viking put it all together, and lists the mighty amount of pointy-eared products coming out this year. With a whole new edition of the game also in the offing, you've got to wonder if the minions of Lolth (she may be half-spider, but man, I have a thing for her) might not be the poster boys and girls of 5th Edition DnD.
