@TheEdVerse Who got together to make up the Drow language in Faerun?

Heh. I WISH we were that organized.
Various creators (R. A. Salvatore, in particular) made words up for various projects. I collected a drow lexicon for the 2e Drow Of The Underdark and the Menzo boxed set. Eric Boyd then picked up for Drizzt D’sGTTUnderdark, and.. 2)
…so on. As we rode into the digital age, computer files were compiled for the various languages of the Realms, which we update constantly.
I frequently add words publicly in response to questions here on Twitter, and secretly when asked by designers.#Realmslore

Lueblueth (“LOOB-looth”), meaning: too many to count, or too many to remember, or too many to care about (usually used when speaking of foes slain, but Elminster says that honest drow use it most often to speak of their regrets)#Realmslore
