Re: "Condemnation" Cover Art Revealed
you know, it strikes me as funny. you look at all the art of drow and they always seem to be decked out in leather. very cool looking yes, but think about that for a min. they like being stealthy. leather creaks no matter how worn. the stuff their wearing looks pritty crisp and new to me. so if drow were to exist, unless they were going into a big battle and not to concerned about stealth, wouldent they wear something else? im not sure what but mabey some rothe skin or something? im not a pro on underdark material lol. ok so thats my ramble on what came to mind when i saw the new pic. that and it looks pritty cool.

I think a rothe is very similar to one of our cows, and so I guess this is where the dark elves get their leather from. I think RAS said in one of his books that the dark elves pad their chain mail so that it makes no noise. I suppose if you kept rubbing some kind of odourless oil onto a suit of leather armour it would keep it so supple that it didn't 'creak.'

your probably right. but icky oily elves lol. for some obscure reason i thought a rothe was like a sheep or something. must have been their mannerisms when they escaped drizzt. ^_6

Rothe are the equivalent to cattle. The chainmail that drow where are wrapped in silk that masks both glints of metal and sound. There is such a thing as very soft leather which is very likely treated magically so that it protects as well as being quiet and comfortable. At least that is my theory.
