Subject:  Re: Astromundi Cluster: Drow Strike Force
That encounter was something I used in an AC game as a side encounter.  In
the AC the drow are minor players and are struggling to just stay alive (and
keep their few remaining ships intact).  The illithids and Antilans way
outclass them and have whole fleets to hunt down enemies.  The neogi are in a
great position and can pull the strings for a change.  The Scro and pirates
of Gith are fighting suicide wars against the Elves and Illithids,
respectivly.   Yes, drow normally would not keep driders around, but since
they "occured" on the trip TO the cluster, you the drow will use them (as
slaves of course).  Plus the switch to Seltain instead of Lolth  should tip
off everyone that things are not going well with the drow.  If things aren't
bad enough for the *poor* drow, the Insectare want to use them for their own
means.   Feel sorry for the drow yet.  In the Cluster, the shoe is on the
OTHER foot for the dark elves.  They are on the run and desperate for allies.
Rumor that the players got about the drow.  When the drow first entered the
inner sphere, they had a VERY bad encounter with two Antilan Crystal ships
and half the drow forces were lost.
Adventure hooks:  Drow desperate for allies will approch anyone they think
will not attack first.  Players with Varans or Lizard-men may get intersting
offers to "hide" out a few refugees from the Illithids.
Or an elven PC  is approched to offer an alliance with a "legendary" enemy.
 The cluster elves have had almost no exposure to drow and would be for a
perfect a drow double-cross scenario (old habits die hard).
Or the drow try to organize the Scro, pirates of Gith, some rogue Varans ,
outcast neogi, etc.  into a new power to be delt with in the sphere.  Little
chance of that alliance lasting, but a short term danger.
Or there is always the "good" drow exception, who escapes the convoy and
warns the player of a powerful, last ditch attempt device that the drow are
going to use to bring a drow city into the cluster.
Lastly, who knows that the Insectare covert influence might have on the
already chaotic and depserate drow.

Ideas to use or delete.
