    Crossposting this from the recruitment thread.

    Since Zizi and Duck have both apparently fallen off the planet, Party C finds itself in need of a stealthy class, ideally a Ninja.
    The Ninja is what it sounds like. Stealthy death. Ninja are stealthy, acrobatic, deadly, can do martial arts, and get a variety of kind-of-like-magic ki powers. Also kunoichi get jiggle physics based distraction powers. Believe it!
    But other classes, depending, might be fine. Get in touch. Mentioning C in particular because it most imminently needs new players.

    Can I play a narcissistic female lawful good kunoichi? The interplay between being skillful sudden death and "girl you wish you had this body" would be rad.

    Definitely. Anyway, I have to go leave for class now. I should be back sometime between 3 and 3:30 PM, maybe 2:30 if the busses run shockingly on schedule.

    It's currently 10:45 AM for frame of reference, since you don't live in the One True Timezone.

    In honor of Reg's lovely Abigail, have some Umbralume infodump!

    The people of Umbralume generally divide the day into Moonday and Night. Moonday is the closest thing Umbralume has to 'day' and refers to those hours when the moon is overhead and there is moonlight. Night is when the moon is not overhead and everything is literally pitch. Depending on where people are, they may structure their lives treating one as day and the other as night, based on local concerns. For example; Werewolves are more active when the moon is out, but on the converse when the moon is out is when things are warmer and it's somewhat easier to see. On the flipside, in most areas of Umbralume, Shadows emerge at night and prey upon lone Humans - although they almost always avoid Humans in groups and Humans indoors or in towns.

    I never mentioned it, but given the Cuthbertine influence on the plane, and the general atmosphere of fear and paranoia, mainstream Human culture demands Tieflings be killed at birth. Sorcerers are generally burnt as witches (as are genuine Witches) and are less tolerated than proper Wizards who can sometimes get away with exile or, in ultra-liberal communities, extreme ostracization and shunning.

    AND SOME (Asul) DROW INFODUMP.

    Edonilche'el, located in a titular vault within the Middledark, is one of, if not the, oldest Drow (or non-Drow) settlements in the Underdark. The ancient capital of the Drow empire of old, it is a massive mega-city which occupies the entirety of the vault in which it is built, and then some.
    Edonilche'el has no Valsharess proper, and is instead basically run as a series of city-states, with various chunks of the city under the control of various Drow factions. House Barra'che, Great House Chaon, Great House Chathlinath, House Draasol, Great House Faernsenger, the Istotsoss Sisterhood, Great House Maelthra, Great House Quarthas, House Rendanvlos, Great House Ssivahyorn, and Great House Veldruk (among other factions and puppet organizations) all have chunks of Edonilche'el under their control. Additionally, certain parts of the city are directly ruled as theocracies by local priestesses. Such church holdings include Great House Ku'nal's former territory within the megacity, which were either donated to the church in an attempt to gain favor, or seized directly by local priestesses in the aftermath of the Huthindrow Uprising.
    Ever since the Huthindrow Uprising, the largest single holding within the city is that of Great House Maelthra, with Ilharess Z'hrenil Maelthra and most of her family personally residing within what used to be the imperial palace of the old Empire.

    Edonilche'el is home to over a million inhabitants (Drow, Outsiders, and slaves) and officially has no aliens' ghettoes, although it is known that the city's extensive sewer network is home to colonies of Ghouls, as well as the typical waste disposing Otyughs. Rumors of other, more sinister, creatures lurking in the undercity abound.

    In addition to local light sources like magic lanterns and localized glowstone or glowing fungus patches, the nigh-literal shining star of the city's light sources is a massive naturally formed but Drow smoothed and carved pillar (running the entire massive height of the vault) which is entirely covered in bioluminescant fungi and was created during the height of the Empire. Besides this, there are numerous stalactites and stalagmites similarly adorned, but which provide far less light, and far less spectacle.

    Great House Faernsenger's holdings are located in a smaller sub-vault off to the side of the central vault, and centered around the school of Laelda'uren (Ilharess Aryyna Faernsenger serves as headmistress, and also has converted a few of the upper floors into one of her homes), which serves as both a school for the elite children of both sexes, teaching them the various skills they might need to succeed in Drow society, and also as the single largest and most famous arcane college amongst the Drow, and probably the whole of the Underdark.

    Architecturally, the city is a mess, with literally thousands of years of building and rebuilding, and differing tastes and sensibilities having been applied due to regional or temporal fashions. Additionally, some parts of the city, such as the Quarthas' capital (located in a smaller sub-vault) were originally non-Drow (in this case, Duergar) settlements which were conquered and inhabited by the Drow after the original inhabitants had all been slaughtered and/or enslaved.
    Edonilche'el today is basically built on top of Edonilche'el.

    Although it may or may not be the oldest non-Illithid or Aboleth city in the Underdark (the Drow, of course, insist it is) it is certainly the largest known city to exist down there, although rumors whisper of larger Illithid cities in parts of the Lowerdark, and some Kuo-Toa claim that there is a massive Aboleth city at the bottom of the Sunless Sea of equal or greater size.

    Next I'll probably either ramble about the Drow houses a bit, or some Drow NPCs, or about Lilt'puuliche'el, the second biggest Drow city in the Underdark.
