View Full Version : Drow Monster Class?

Is there a monster class for drow to get rid of the nasty LV-ADJ? If there isn't, is there a good unofficial one, or a type of drow with a lower LV-ADJ?

Here you go.

Racial classes don't actually get rid of LA. Once you complete the class, you have the full LA. All racial classes let you do is take a race at levels below it's standard starting ECL and spread out the rate at which you gain abilities.

For instance, the drow class linked to above starts out with you being a Drow with one class level in any class you choose. You start out with only a small handful of drow racial abilities. This gives you 1 HD and LA +0. The next level you take must be in the drow progression, which grants you a few more drow racial abilities, but no hit dice. You become a creature with 1 HD and LA +1. For your third level, you take another level of drow, once again gaining only a few abilities and additional LA. You will have 1 HD and LA +2. From here on you will advance as any other drow PC.

So, the progression does nothing to eliminate LA. It just delays it.

If you want to reduce, or even eliminate LA, you should use the Reducing Level Adjustment (http://www.systemreferencedocuments.org/35/sovelior_sage/unearthedRaces.html) variant from Unearthed Arcana. The only other option is to create a weaker variant drow subrace.
