ANY argument that a dwarf would not take in a drow infant and raise it (in FR) is null & void, thanks to the existence of Drizzt. If a dwarven KING would take-in a DANGEROUS ADULT MALE DROW, any dwarf would take-in an innocent infant (and even though females are technically 'more dangerous' among drow, to dwarves, females are something special and in need of protection in their culture).

Now, if this were Greyhawk - where drow are treated PROPERLY - then I would say 'no way'. A GH Dwarf would probably eat a drow baby, because they don't even think of them as anything remotely 'human'. Everything is 'B&W' in GH, no 'shades of grey' like we have in FR.

More on-topic:
I actually prefer the non-Eilistraee explanations. Perhaps a group of dwarves came upon a disenfranchised group of Drow (survivors from something? Refugees? Outcasts?), who immediately attck them (being Drow), and amongst the camp-goods they find a baby (the mother is already very dead). They have no way of knowing anything about the child or where it came from, only that it is innocent of any wrong-doing and should be protected.


And now I realize i just responded to an old thread. YECH




I recommend cooking them with a plum sauce.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail
