Draegloth

It's easy to see why many high priestesses value their draegloth offspring.

Draegloth

Draegloths are demons born of an unholy union between drow high priestesses and demons. Though such couplings are not exactly rare, the birth of a draegloth is a rare event. Draegloth are Lolth's favored, and the exceptional among them often achieve high positions in the priesthood of Lolth. Draegloth often serve as bodyguards for their mothers, though not out of loyalty.

Draegloth Tactics

Draegloth are not subtle beings, so most draegloth are unable to use sophisticated tactics in combat. Draegloth love to get their claws dirty and usually fight toe-to-toe with the toughest foes. Draegloth are often under the command of drow, so draegloth have been known to execute sophisticated tactics thought up by their drow masters.

Draegloth Brute Tactics

Draegloth brutes, if anything, are even less subtle than other draegloth. Drow often find it hard to impose their will on draegloth brutes, as they rarely listen to orders once in the thick of battle.

Draegloth Favored One Tactics

Favored ones are much more sophisticated than other, "lesser" draegloth, and are capable of using the sophisticated hit-and-run tactics of the drow. A favored one typically stays away from the front lines, preferring to fight at range with the powers granted to them by Lolth.

Draegloth High Priestess Tactics

A draegloth high priestess is one of the most powerful members of the drow clergy. High priestesses use similar tactics to favored ones, as high priestesses are favored ones with much more power and status.

Draegloth Lore

Draegloth2

A Draegloth Favored One.

A character knows the following information with a successful arachana, arcana or religion check.

DC 10 (arachana), DC 15 (arcana or Religion): Draegloth are demons born of an unholy union between a drow high priestess and a demon. Such a union rarely produces a child, but sometimes Lolth will bless the drow with a draegloth son or daughter. Draegloth usually follow their mothers around, acting as bodyguards, but they are perfectly happy to execute a well-timed betrayal.
DC 15 (arachana), DC 20 (arcana or Religion): Rarely, a draegloth may be born with greater intellect and charisma than its lesser brethren. Such draegloth are called favored ones, and are trained to be clerics of Lolth. Favored ones often achieve high positions in the priesthood of Lolth.
DC 20 (arachana), DC 25 (arcana or Religion): A draegloth is born when a priestess performs a special ritual to enable mating with a demon. This ritual is secret and only given to high priestesses. Even with this ritual, the birth of a draegloth is rare.

Encounter Groups

Draegloth are often included in drow patrols, along with tamed spiders, driders and slave soldiers.
