What really captures my imagination in Rise of the Drow is how the lore of the drow city is woven in the lexical crafting and challenge of the encounters.

My favorite thing about Rise of the Drow is the feeling of playing in a living, breathing, grimdark world that has been lovingly crafted and detailed. Everything from the characters to the lore is just begging to be used and abused to fulfill a dark fantasy epic campaign. Simply reading through it gives me tons of inspiration to expand on the existing material or throw together a completely new adventure along the same vein.

I love how well-organized and detailed the writing is compared to WOTC content. It’s very easy to both run as-written as well as modify content. The story is engaging and a great hook for the adventure. Lots of interesting twists and turns, and lots of variety. I also like the setting. None of my players know it, so it’s all fresh. No existing baggage from Lolth, Menzoberranzan, etc. With the custom setting it’s more of a sandbox.

My favorite thing about Rise of the Drow is the depth of the characters, mainly the different members of House Gullion. Each has their own motives and goals and this can drive their actions and allow the players a chance to interact with them in different ways. It adds so much to the story of the game.
