are about to encounter the Unhuman Armada

Not excactly an Armada, just something I fleshed out based on some encounter
notes.

Drow Strike Force
     1 Jade Spider Commandship (equipped with a Cloak of Darkness)
          5 high priests (1d4+5 levels) with spider mounts
          3 warlocks (1d6+5 levels)
          20 elite troops (fighter/mages, 2/2)
          20 drider shock troops
     5 Jade Spiders (docked on the back of the Commandship, each with the
following crew)
          2 high priests with spider mounts
          2 warlocks
          10 elite troops

Notes:
Only one drider can exit the drill assembly at one time.
Drow loose their magic resistance and spell-like abilities away from the
underdark.
Drow use special darkened glass goggles to protect their eyes in an assault.
The spider mounts used by the priests are a special breed of phase spider
that allows the rider and mount to flee to the ethereal if needed.
Cloak of Darkness is a (large) magical device that envelops the entire ship
in a giant sized globe of darkness.  Some part of the ship (usually an
antenna) must extend outside the globe for the helmsman to navigate.
The Jade Spiders are brougth along only when Neogi are targeted.  Otherwise,
they take up too much air, and the driders are more effective shock troops.
In the Astromundi Cluster, the Drow have turned from Lolth to Seltain for
their spells and powers.  Male priests are allowed and females may be mages.
 Thief class drow are more common.

Persons of Importance:
Commander:  d'Lia Se'Ezshail (fighter/priest, 5/6)
Second: Thiadaash (fighter/mage 5/5)
Cheif War Mage: s'Ne Lai'Rianeis (shadow mage 9, war mage kit)
Negotiator: e'Si Lath 'Raitheith (priest 7, diplomat kit)
Captain of Marines: d'Ilnai Ra'Zadan (fighter 8, long sword specialist, 2
weapon style, Marine kit)
DM Special: Shiarazshin (a disguised Insectare spy, possing as a navigations
officer, looking for weaknesses the drow fleet)
