Hi! So i was wondering, should the Drow be a sub category of Elves? Now they are elven but have changed allot sens there dark elven days. But when one looks at other races like the Duergar there dwarfs and they have gone through a allot of changes as well (And yes i know there not dwarfs any more)! On the other hand Githyanki arent human... I might be getting this wrong but what do you guys think? Drow a subrace of Elves? Are the drow to different or should the Elven category encompass all the elven like breed?

Drow were always treated as an elven subrace up until 4e when they were essentially made into a separate species. I like continuity so personally would prefer to keep their articles subcategorized under the tel-quessir.

Hmm in the Tel'Quessir races drow are listed as "related races"... Today i added the Aquatic elf images under elfs category so does that mean that i should remove the aquatic elf? So should there be a Tel'Quessir category that have all the elves in it and if so should we have wood elfs in elves that are in Tel'Quessir?

The tel'quessir encompass all pureblooded elven (slash eladrin) races.
  • Alu'tel'quessir - aquatic elves
  • Ar'tel'quessir - sun elves
  • Aril'tel'quessir - avariel
  • Ly'tel'quessir - lythari
  • Or'tel'quessir - wood elves
  • Ruar'tel'quessir - star elves
  • Ssri'tel'quessir - dark elves (who became the drow)
  • Sy'tel'quessir - wild elves
  • Teu'tel'quessir - moon elves

Even though the drow were rejected by the other elves and the Seldarine, they are still not n'tel'quess (creatures that aren't elves).

Ah so then drow are not in the category... Hmm maybe then we should have like elven > Dark Elf > Drow?
