What would a Tiefling who has one parent who is drow look like? I always thought just a drow with horns and a tail but something more exotic would be interesting.

The thing about half-folk is that they VARY; not all offspring of even the same two parents (of different races) will look the same, and there's even more "variety" of appearance when it comes to different parents. This drow mother/human father-child can look…#Realmslore https://t.co/iCv7NF29Sy

The Crinti of #Realmslore are supposed to be a society of half drow / half humans that basically breed true and IIRC are described as being grey skinned or dusky hued, though some of the art appears almost a light purple. Yes. However, tiefling lineage has a wild/random quality/trait, that results in a variety of features/appearances in offspring, and has done since the introduction of tieflings into the game (we discuss many things, behind the scenes, in design).#Realmslore
