The survivors of "the flow" disaster in Lacuna Nox traveled deeper into the mountains and created the city of New Nox. Many drow desperately missed the wealth and prestige in Lacuna Nox and a great library is built in honor of their home. This greatly advances the cities influence in literature. The drow begin to perform experiments deep underground and create terrible drider creatures. They enslave the race and force them to help build the city to the same power as their former home. To prove to the world that the drow have once again risen in power a great black pyramid is built above the city. Although the drow of New Nox still regard their own race as superior they have close ties to the human city of Glenelg. Glenelg took in survivors of "the flow" and their trade arrangements have brought prosperity among the drow cities.
