Drow prerequisites

Postby J.C. » Tue Jun 23, 2015 5:21 pm

I was just thumbing through the Drow of the Underdark book and a random thought came into my head.
Since the opening up of the LA races includes the Half-Drow, will the Feats and PrCs that require "Drow" also be opened up to include Half-Drow?

Random thoughts bouncing uncontrollably around in my braincell challenged mind.

If I'm not mistaken this is answered by association in the PhB. Half-Elves count as both Human and Elf for requirements that reference either of them, which causes Half-Drow to count as Human / Drow (and also Elf I think) for requirements.

This is answered explicitly by Races of Faerun and Drow of the Underdark.

RoF p.63 wrote:Drow Blood: For all special abilities and effects, a half-drow is considered a drow.

DotU p.220 wrote:...rather than elf blood, [half-drow] have drow blood. Since drow is a subrace of elf, the net effect is that they have elf blood as well. The specification of drow blood means that for all special abilities and effects particular to a drow, a half-drow is considered a drow.
