Heroes of the New Day
“The Deeps” is sometimes a misnomer, since they are not always the deepest layers of the Underdark. Due to the constantly shifting nature of the Underdark, as well as the (literally) insane magics of many aberrants, occasionally some pocket of the Deeps will actually connect to a cave mere hours from the surface world. These connections don’t remain constant, but stick around long enough for raiding parties or other horrors to gather fresh crops of slaves or humanoid snacks for whatever crawls out from these Deep regions.
Drow. Most large Drow cities are found in the Deeps.
One of the largest Drow cities of the modern day, Menzoberranzan is known to have a ridiculously complex system of noble houses that run everything in the city. House wars change the leadership fairly frequently, though always under the chaotic guidance of the Spider Queen. More on this in August 2012, with the release of the new hardcover of the same name.
