I'm working on a campaign setting set entirely in a series of underground tunnels and caverns, and I'm at a loss when trying to find splatbooks on the subject. Does someone have a list of 3.5 OGC books dealing with the Underdark and the elemental plane of earth?

The Underdark, naturally, and Drow of the Underdark, should get you going. I'm not sure about the Plane of Earth besides generic planar splats.

Dunno about OGL. Underdark sources I own include -

3.5 - Drow of the Underdark, Fane of the Drow

3.0 - Underdark

Earlier - Dungeoneer's Survival Guide, Modules D1-D3

This (http://www.tsrinfo.net/archive/d20/underdark.htm) is from Goodman Games (3.5 d20)

This (http://www.tsrinfo.net/archive/3f/spiderqueen.htm) is from WotC (3.0 D&D)

Edit: Cleaned up links.

3.0 - Underdark

Underdark is actually a very early 3.5 book- it has things like DR/adamantine, and came out around the same time as Miniatures Handbook. While Faerun-specific, much of its content is adaptable to other settings with an Underdark, like Greyhawk or Eberron.

There is also an "Underdark (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/Product.aspx?x=dnd/products/dndacc/251210000)" for 4th edition. I think most of it is fluff.

Most. Though there are 4E monster stats in the back of the book.

That may be about it on official sources, but Dungeon Masters Guild hosts a lot of new content for 5th edition. For instance, you can get a write-up about the phaerimm, or character backgrounds based on the Underdark. It could be a good way to spark ideas even if it's not the version of D&D you play.

It's 2e, but the Illithiad.
