2005-10-11 [Melocrie]: May sound stupid, but what are Drows?

2005-10-11 [akhirah]: isnt stupid! ^_^ history of the drow will help you out there..

2005-10-11 [Linn Scarlett]: oh ^_^ lol but stretch it a little with your patience on me, ive exams these weeks >_<

2005-10-11 [Linn Scarlett]: if you want some in-and-in info on it, iam writting a story about a drow, Drow Book ^_^

2005-10-11 [Metalelf]: WHOOOOOT! *joyful new contest boogie*

2005-10-11 [Melocrie]: lolol <(^.^<) (>^.^)> lol

2005-10-12 [Zardra]: wheee, I'm going to enter! ^__^ hmmm... now I just have to decide with which pic *ponders*

2005-10-12 [akhirah]: lol decisions, decisions..since all of your drows are awesome! XD

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm what do you think of my combination between Drow and Colonial clothing and Barokke home interior ? (offcourse all in gothic colors and spider patterns!)

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Sounds pretty kickass! Spiderwebs+gothic colours=good.

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: mjeah with colonial clothing (it just looks nobility and royal to me O.o') and barokke (aka obscenely detailed) interior with lots of black marble and darkwood and silk ^_^

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Mmmm...sounds good. What is Colonial clothing by the way? (I'm useless with history :P)

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: remember PotC? the clothing the english wore there, only then stylished and in gothic colors *but i just adore cravats ^_^ they make someone look so....nobily :P

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Oh, that sort of thing! Yes, that looks good on drow...I gave Veldrin a cravat once. :D

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: it looks most like this one, only with a shorter vest, high jackboots, no hat (they have crowns and circlets) and a higher collar ^_^ now that i mention it, it looks a more like the Gothic Vampyre Dress (for males) <img:>

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: Drow are elves and elves are prisses :P so i thought: trow the robes out of the door! we are going to do something DIFFERENT :P

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Squeeee...I want a coat like that...

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: and the left one makes me think of one of my characters Drem, he's a bard that pretends to be a noble, and he's a bitt of a bohemien :P

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: i have a coat like that (i actually based my idea on Jack Sparrow's coat)

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Cool, where'd you get it?

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: i made it...

2005-10-12 [Metalelf]: Spiffy :D I need to learn to sew. I need to design some more costumes for my drow as well...

2005-10-12 [Linn Scarlett]: *chuckles* iam rusted in my drow's outfitts aswell ;) so dont be ashamed. Well i made it out of the leather of my late couch *lol* twas for carnaval 2 years ago, when me and [Torn blue jeans] went as Jack Sparrow and William Turner (me as jack she as will)

2005-10-12 [akhirah]: sounds like a good idea!!!!!! XD!

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: its a little unorthodox i know ^_^

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: I got a question... are driders allowed? (
2. Drows and Dark elves only! Anything other than that will be removed.) but drider are drows... that have been cursed.. if not it ok... Ill enter a drow...

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: i think so... but iam not sure O.O last time it was full-drow-only

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: well I was asking [akhirah] the contest owner... but she isnt on just now...

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: thats why i tried to answer....

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: but fine, i wont help anymore if its not appreciated

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: *pet* thats not what I said... I just like The owner's answer...

2005-10-13 [Melocrie]: lol

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: hm

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: so who you gonna put in Meldor or Lucey?

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: donno yet...think meldor

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: you are allowed two... I only have Dubhezi and Athela... Dubhezi art Im happy with - Athela's still needs work...I want to add more to them...

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm i always envisioned ath girly in a way an acrobat can look girly

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: yes.. he is.. or like a dancer... when I said work... I might p-ainting work... I want to fancy up his clothing... with patterns...

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: Drow Contest 2 want ed to see...

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: oh yours dont show up... which ones did yuou enter Linn?

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: oh that was on the domain i closed last year (its 2 years old the contest atleast O.o) the one of Luse and Linn, where Lucieus think's that she's dead

2005-10-13 [akhirah]: Yus driders are allowed...XD or any other thing to do with drow...giant spider queen? whichever...^__^

2005-10-13 [Metalelf]: When it the closing date? Y'see, I'm having a bit of artists block at the mo and I might not draw anything decent for at least a few weeks...O_o

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: wweeeeeeeeeeee!!! thats wonderfully! I got a speacial painting to do than.. gonna play with a WIP I have! thank you Akhirah.

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: atleast give him loincloths....two of them! *grins and winks at moira*

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: 5. Nudity is acceptable; pornography is not.... Ill think about it... hahaha... accually he already does... well one.. his other is FULLY retractable and doesnt show unless he is 'actively using it' most animals hide their's - mammals less so - ape and human not at all.. let it dangle all exposed and in harms way... that why people started waring clothes... to make up for what nature didnt get them...

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm i like it that way ^_^ trousers were the stupidiest invention ever >_< *lol* sides, humans do retract it, sort of? well it changes size...? *snickers* horses don't retract it either!

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: humans dont really retract theirs.. the blood just empties out of it... dogs and horse and such have sheaths that cover it... and pull it up tight to the body... a cat's penis is almost interior invisible when not in use... all not mammals hide their very well... but spiders you cant see thier at all

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: do they even have that? chickens don't ... it hought *shakes head* but then again i dont really care what animals do with their private parts O.o

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: chicken do have penis... how you think he gets it in there to fertize the egg... mental powers?

2005-10-13 [liiga]: [moira hawthorne], here's how: :D (scroll to the middle of the whole thing or so). A pity the poll for the previous drow contest broke. :\

2005-10-13 [Linn Scarlett]: I TOLD YOU SO *ghehee* chickens don't have private parts....atleast not in the way we say it, fish and frogs dont have em either

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: ok... so male birds dont have a penis.. he has an opening and he mounts the female and they kiss their two openings together and sperm is exchanged... interesting... ... I also looked up snakes and spiders.. snakes have two penis... where as spiders have an opening as well and not a penis... it seems spiders product the sperm spurt it out on a pad... stick their hands in it... than go off looking for a female to finger! he stick one or both his 'hands' in her.. and may or may not leave one in place... she may eat him... but new edience is likely that the percentage of health males that get eaten is like 1%

2005-10-13 [akhirah]: ''how you think he gets it in there to fertize the egg... mental powers?'' - lmao! wat..a conversation about chickens penis O_O

2005-10-13 [akhirah]: yey nudity!

2005-10-13 [moira hawthorne]: well not.. sorry... no nude driders.. he is wearing his spider silk wrap... around his waist..

2005-10-14 [Metalelf]: Wouldn't it look really wierd to see a drider wearing trousers? (A funny idea from the insane world of My Brain.)

2005-10-14 [Linn Scarlett]: hmz

2005-10-14 [Metalelf]: I should launch my own clothing range: DRIDER PANTS! Style need not be just for the two-legged!

2005-10-14 [Linn Scarlett]: O.o'

2005-10-14 [Metalelf]: Hehe...I already have a drider who wears a says 'I LOVE SPAM' on it.

2005-10-14 [moira hawthorne]: pants with eight legs... O.O

2005-10-14 [moira hawthorne]: oh there wasnt a banner so I made one... <img:stuff/drow%20banner.jpg> I hope you like this... [akhirah] and everyone wait till [akhirah] okays it... ...

2005-10-14 [akhirah]: it is amazingly good! and there i was worrying about what banner to do XD thanks so much! ^_^ *glee*

2005-10-14 [Linn Scarlett]: it rocks :P

2005-10-14 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhhh good...thx U ... I always make a banner for any contest or wiki im in that needs one... I like making banners...

2005-10-15 [moira hawthorne]: <img:stuff/drow%20banner%20small.jpg> [akhirah] requested a smaller one... but didnt give me a desired size.. so I just made this...

2005-10-15 [akhirah]: ahh! thats a perfect size!! ^____^*

2005-10-15 [moira hawthorne]: ok good Im glad you like... and I m glad it worked.. since I flattened the first one... eeeekkkkkks I try to save the unflattened photoshop versions... till I know everyone is satified.. but this time I didnt so all I had to work with was the jpeg image...

2005-10-15 [Metalelf]: It's a spiffy font too, what's it called?

2005-10-15 [moira hawthorne]: Grimace

2005-10-15 [Linn Scarlett]: its cool :D

2005-10-15 [moira hawthorne]: I like the type you use in Evernight, Linn....

2005-10-15 [Linn Scarlett]: the lettertype? i downloaded it somewhere i recall O.o

2005-10-15 [moira hawthorne]: yes... you remember its name?

2005-10-15 [Linn Scarlett]: olive? or something like that

2005-10-15 [Linn Scarlett]: its an MS Paint thing

2005-10-16 [Metalelf]: Just a random thought: what kind of stage lighting do you suppose my drow band would use? Because if they used normal lights (like human bands do) then it'd probably fry their eyes...I'm writing a scene where they play a gig, you see.

2005-10-16 [moira hawthorne]: well drow can see in normal light.. but it hurts their eyes untill they adjust and switch vision from infra red to normal (to us) light refraction....

2005-10-16 [Linn Scarlett]: but as far as i know thats only possible if they are frequently exposed to light, even Driz still couldn't really bare the sunlight long, and he had been on the surface for more than a decade back then O.o

2005-10-16 [Linn Scarlett]: they could use blacklight? that does not emmit normal light

2005-10-16 [moira hawthorne]: but that sunlight... there werre candles in the underdark... stage light are normally still darker thabn sunlight... they are filtered to give colours...

2005-10-16 [Linn Scarlett]: meldor actually burns torches around his private quarters, just to keep prying eyes out (litterally!)

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: Do you reckon drow could handle strobe lighting?

2005-10-17 [moira hawthorne]: aimed at their eyes... likely would fuck them up... aimed away... maybe... tho they wouldnt be able to see in infra red at the same time...

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: Could be. I kinda scrapped the infra-red idea for my story anyway (I just couldn't get my little human brain around it) maybe it would just have the same effect on them as it does on us, only more extreme...*thinks about how that would work*

2005-10-17 [moira hawthorne]: well these drow are in our present yes? ... maybe they just gotten use to it... at least night lights... clubs light.. stuff like that... a bright sunny day might still irratate them...

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: Hey, good idea! :D Neon lights and things are a lot less painful to look at than sunlight, so I guess it would work. Thanks :D

2005-10-17 [moira hawthorne]: and if you ever tryed to read the menu at a fancy restaruant.. with mood lighting... its hard... but you can see your food and partner fine... they be able to see much better than human in dimm light.. and worse than us in bright light...

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: Mood lighting...hehe...I imagine drow bars are full of it :P

2005-10-17 [moira hawthorne]: hehehe..... and we would be like lambs to the slaughter!

2005-10-17 [Linn Scarlett]: 'mood lighting" ghehehe somehow it sounds nasty combined with drow :p

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: I've had a couple of drow bars in my was full of crazy purple glows and the other was full of smoke and angry people.

2005-10-17 [liiga]: *managed to read that as "one was full of crazy purple cows"* Had me wondering for a moment there. XD

2005-10-17 [Metalelf]: Purple cows! *lmao* Now that's a funny image.

2005-10-17 [moira hawthorne]: I just read ... Purple cows! *lmao* Now that's a funny image.... first... and My first thought was a drow drink... like a brown cow.. with a drow twist!

2005-10-18 [Metalelf]: Hehehe. *wonders what goes into drinks to make them pueple*

2005-10-18 [moira hawthorne]: dont know... there are blue liquires... maybe one of them mixed with a red one...

2005-10-18 [Metalelf]: Could be. I had a purple drink once. It was the purplest thing I ever saw.

2005-10-18 [Metalelf]: Oooh the purpleness. O_O

2005-10-18 [moira hawthorne]: the second one sounds cool... id like to experiment with it... and up the alcohol amount... why do I think drow wouldnt drink a wozzy drink.. and want one that would nearly kill you? hahaha

2005-10-18 [moira hawthorne]: here's the simple purple cow...

2005-10-18 [moira hawthorne]: now this sounds like a drow drink!

2005-10-18 [Metalelf]: My drow have drunk some pretty strange stuff. Adrotha had a party at the start of the story and had a green drink...that glowed...O_o

2005-10-18 [moira hawthorne]: I think I had that too!

2005-10-18 [Linn Scarlett]: I prefer Mushtalin-wine but....

2005-10-19 [Metalelf]: O_o You have drunk a glowing green thing?

2005-10-19 [moira hawthorne]: yup.... dry ice and glow sticks and lots of different alcohols... a reall swamp water!

2005-10-19 [Metalelf]: GLOWSTICKS!!!!!! My friend gave me a glowstick for my birthday.

2005-10-19 [moira hawthorne]: yah Eirikr loves the little ones you can bend into braclets...

2005-10-19 [Metalelf]: Oh yes! They're the best. I even wear my glowstick bracelets long after they've stopped glowing.

2005-10-20 [Linn Scarlett]: i just drew some black guards, but i dont think i will submitt those :P

2005-10-20 [moira hawthorne]: ooooo why not?
