In the Eberron campaign setting, the drow reside on the shattered continent of Xen'drik. The common image of the Xen'drik drow is one of a tribal hunter wearing chitin armor, his skin ritually scarred by acidic venom. Cruel and cunning, these nomadic drow are deadly hunters who own the shadows of Xen'drik and prey on giants and humanoid alike.
While the majority of the drow of Xen'drik live in tribes, there are exceptions -- elves who have held onto the arcane secrets of the past, using them to develop strange new spells. The computer game Dragonshard reveals one of these hidden sects: the umbragen, also known as shadow elves.
This article provides an overview of the umbragen, allowing you to incorporate these enigmatic elves into your campaign. It provides the flavor of the race depicted in the Dragonshard real-time strategy game, bu tit is not intended to be a perfect map to the abilities of the umbragen units in Dragonshard.
