Spidersilk armor worn under other armor is impractical because of the necessity of it being loose and free to move about. Cost of spidersilk is the same as for plate armor. Drow warriors may also be encountered wearing leather, reinforced leather, or metal & leather armor (half armor).

Commentary & Description
The legendary race of dark-skinned elves known as Drow are similar to their Seelie cousins in most ways, but their evil bent sets them quite apart. Originating in the Interior realm of Phaeree, they range over the entire world, and may be found dwelling in some numbers in the subterranean and even the exterior regions.

Sharing control of the Occidental Unseelie with their rivals (the Slaugh), the Drow contingent is known as the Red Faction. These dark-skinned, evil elves command hosts of annis, gaunts, orcs, ogres, trolls, and jotens from the great keep of Rilthundu. The Drow blazon is a flaming sword on a flag of red and purplish-black.
