I. OOC NOTES

Many of the Drow words and phrases appearing below are excerpts from
`The Drow of the Underdark` by TSR, Inc., and other authorized AD&D
sources.
Where applicable, these excerpts are displayed in capital letters.
The remaining Drow words and phrases have been developed by the
Temple of Lloth (`TOL`). This dictionary may be distributed through
licensed TSR sites and used in connection with any AD&D role-playing
activity.
However, TOL requests that no alterations or additions be made to this
dictionary for use in Neverwinter Nights (`NWN`) without the consent
of the TOL GM.

II. USAGE NOTES

This dictionary has been prepared by the Sorcere for the use of the
Drow in dealing with other races and as a guide for other races in the
proper dealings with the Drow. To facilitate such use, the majority
of this Dictionary has been translated into Common.

Any Drow allowed contact with other races should have received
training in proper conduct elsewhere, thus no effort has been made to
supplement such training here. Non-Drow are advised to pay heed to
these Usage Notes.
Many Drow societies welcome mutually profitable or pleasurable
dealings with other races or societies. However, the Drow are a
justly proud people and are quick to take offense — often fatal
offense — at what they perceive to be insults or breaches of
etiquette.

You have been warned.

IIIb. POSSESSIVE CASE

for the imperative or subjunctive moods.
