Eilistraee
Eilistraee was the chaotic good drow goddess of song, dance, swordwork, hunting, moonlight, goodness, and beauty, within the drow pantheon known as the Dark Seldarine. She was the patroness and protectress of the few dark elves who longed to return to the surface and live there, at peace with other races, and to abandon the endless conflicts and intrigues that dominated the lives of most drow.

She was often referred to as the The Dark Maiden, the Lady of the Dance, or Lady Silverhair, and sometimes The Dark Dancer, among other titles. After 1375 DR, for a brief time and while her faith subsumed that of her brother, the Masked Lord Vhaeraun, she became known as The Masked Lady.

Eilistraee was the daughter of Araushnee and Corellon Larethian, a free-spirited and kind-hearted goddess, with a fiery streak in her personality. After Araushnee's treachery almost made her slay her own father when a host of evil deities assaulted Arvandor, even as she was cleared from any guilt, Eilistraee chose to share her mother's exile. She made that choice because she knew that the drow would need her light in the times to come. After the descent of the drow, Eilistraee tried her best to be a mother goddess to her people and bring them the hope of a new life: she fought to lead them back to the lands of light, helping them to flourish and prosper in harmony with all other races, free from Lolth's tyranny. Hers was an uphill battle, however, as her power was little and she was opposed by all the gods of the Dark Seldarine. But, despite having to overcome many hardships and setbacks, Eilistraee never gave up fighting for her people.

In the 1370s DR, her conflict with her mother over the souls of the drow race ultimately led to Eilistraee's defeat and temporary disappearance. It lasted for about a century, until the Second Sundering, when Eilistraee returned to life and to her followers.

City of the Spider Queen
City of the Spider Queen is an adventure module set in the Forgotten Realms using the Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition ruleset, and was designed by James Wyatt. It focuses on drow, the Silence of Lolth, and the cult of Kiaransalee, taking the PCs from the Dordrien crypts of Daggerdale through the Underdark to the drow outpost of Szith Morcane and finally the city of Maerimydra, to defeat the schemes of Irae T'sarran.
The Fate of Faerûn Lies in Shadowy Darkness!

Daggerdale is reeling from a sudden series of murderous drow raids. As a grave threat to the entire surface world develops in the war-torn dark elf city of Maerimydra, intrepid heroes must discover its source and destroy it, if they can.

Designed to take 10th level characters as far as 18th level, City of the Spider Queen draws the heroes into the deepest reaches of the Underdark and plunges them into an epic adventure with dire consequences.
