Playing a Drow without being a Drizzt clone
Something I've seen a lot of people struggle with is playing a Drow after they read R.A Salvatore's The Drow Trilogy or any other assortment of books by or supported by him, written by various other authors. (Such as The war of the Spider Queen.) I first read these books when I was just a wee one and have grown to watch so many other Drow characters utterly fail and annoy the rest of the party. If you are a ranger wielding duel scimitars with a panther companion, maybe you need to rethink your originality. It's not cool, it's annoying. It's like a 12 year old writing a fan fiction about a video game where all the male characters seem to forget about T&A and go for each other annoying. No offense friends, but let's think about something new, shall we?
How can I be original with a set amount of classes and races? Or How can I play the same classes, and make a more exciting character?
Anyone can drip creativity from the maw of mediocrity,
