All Trust is Foolish
Welcome to the Underdark where all trust is foolish.
The Law Within the Raging Chaos
Station: In all the world of the drow, there is no more important word. It is the calling of our religion, the incessant pulling of hungering heartstrings. Ambition overrides good sense and compassion is thrown away in its face, all in the name of Lloth, the Spider Queen.
Acension to power in drow society is a simple process of assassination. The Spider Queen is a diety of chaos, and she and her high priestesses, the true rulers of the drow world, do not look with ill favor upon ambitious individuals wielding poisoned daggers.
Of course, there are rules of behavior; every society must boast of these. To openly commit murder or wage war invites the pretense of justice, and penalties exacted in the name of drow justice are merciless. To stick a dagger in the back of a rival during the chaos of a larger battle or in the quiet shadows of an alley, however, is quite acceptable-even applauded. Investigation is not the forte of drow justice. No one cares to bother.
