"Drow" to rhyme with "cow" and NOT "drow" to rhyme with "row" (as in, propel a boat). This comes to us from Gary Gygax, who put drow in the game.
However, regional accents do affect vowel sounds, so you may hear various pronunciations across the Realms.#Realmslore

Droo "Droo" is a brown sauce made from boiling down three sorts of roots and the edible turtles of the River Ith. Rather peppery, but used in many dishes in the southern duchies of Tethyr, and all across Calimshan.
Calling any elf a brown sauce? Expect a negative reaction.#Realmslore
