Drizzt Do'Urden's Guide to the Underdark is an accessory for the 2nd edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, published in 1999.


Drizzt Do'Urden's Guide to the Underdark details the Underdark in the north and west of Faerûn in the Forgotten Realms setting, including the city of Menzoberranzan, and the book has Drizzt Do'Urden as its nominal guide.[1] The guide starts with an introduction that defines the physical boundaries of the Underdark, and also describes the intent and organization of the book and gives a brief list of D&D materials which have a strong connection to the Underdark.[1]

Publication history[edit]

Drizzt Do'Urden's Guide to the Underdark was published by Wizards of the Coast, and written by Eric L. Boyd.[1]


Drizzt Do'Urden's Guide to the Underdark was reviewed by the online version of Pyramid on January 21, 2000.[1] The reviewer contends that this book continues the tradition of dungeon exploration in fantasy role-playing games to campaign worlds with dungeons, stating that with this book "we move to the next step -- campaign worlds that are dungeons".[1] The reviewer notes that the Underdark is "one of the most well known facets of the Forgotten Realms", with Menzoberranzan and "its most famous denizen", Drizzt Do'Urden being "some of the most famous pieces of the Realms".[1]

Shannon Appelcline wrote that it "is the single-most comprehensive sourcebook on the realms of the Underdark that lie beneath the Sword Coast. It talks about the major peoples of the Underworld and details dozens of cities, including Menzoberranzan" and that "Boyd's extensive research results in Underdark being full of tiny references. For example, drow cities are drawn from the list in Drow of the Underdark and from obscure references in Menzoberranzan".[2]
