Good god, this just happened to me. Even WITH the warning about them, oh my good god, that was horrendous.

I've never been to the UD yet, but from what I'm gathering from this post, there are some Black Archers spawning, making life hell for surfacers who wanders UD in certain areas?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Black Archers shevarashian fanatics who would be hunting Drows and not surfacers?

The Black Archers being discussed were PCs who attacked UD PCs. The common nature of those PvP attacks and surfaces just grinding down below without addressing it in their RP is part of why drow ambushes were implemented.

Thanks, this makes more sense to me now.

For what it's worth and what lore has usually hinted about the Underdark, I think that no surfacer would truely expect to come back alive from a trip to the underdark. First because of the lenght of such a trip... at least a month -if- you know your way around perfectly... And then simply by the outright dangerous and inhospitable nature of the place. Even drows themselves very rarely wander alone in the wild tunnels. Going UD is a suicide mission, I think characters should never consider it a trivial "one hour in and out" task.

I understand that measures to address OOC pvp and rule breaking engagements were added by the introductino of the "ambushes" and to me that sounds right, I would certainly expect a drow warband to erradicate intruders. I however see how it could get problematic in the "mechanics" if they spawned while a surfacer was brought as a captured prisonner by a drow party.
