Sprowder Adventurers[edit]

Three sample Lolth's Chosen adventurers are described below.

One adventure was held by Crainfae Hun'nett he lead an expedition that increased the size of Menzobarranzan by nearly a third again its size. He discovered sounds from behind the stone walls at the perimeters of Menzobarranzan and lead many of the other chosen drow and many Duerger (mostly slaves or ones that were threatened) to dig into the sides of Menzobarranzan. While the Duerger dug, the Lolth's Chosen fought the new monsters, three headed creatures with poison, fire, and icy breath. They together succesfully increased Menzobarranzan by almost a third of its size and warded off the attack. Another was Trizzd Baenre, he fought in the arena on the surface world. he fought for the glory of Menzobarranzan. The last one i will share with you is about a female who slew most of the Drider race because of pure anger she then returned with only a handful of Drider remaining.
