Special Traits

  • Innate Spellcasting: The drow’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 11). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

    At will: dancing lights

    1/day each: darkness, faerie fire
  • Sunlight Sensitivity: While in sunlight, the drow has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.

  • Hand Crossbow: Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, range 30/120 feet, one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 hour.
