Realistically and strategically speaking, how would an army go about purging the Drow? The Underdark is basically a killzone, but is there any realistic way for surface world armies to actually penetrate far enough to do lasting damage and wipe out the Drow cities?

The influence of a divine being trying to force a certain mode of behavior doesn't wash: evil can only exist where there is a choice between doing one thing or another - such as harming someone or not harming them - and actively choosing the evil course of action as the preferred one. This is why the drow don't get a fucking pass, kids. Yeah, they choose to serve Lloth, and yet they could always run away, rebel, join with Elistraee or some other deity, etc. Can Lloth make life short and horrible for such people? Sure as fuck she can. But if that person dies in a "state of grace", maintaining a Good alignment the entire time, they break free and get to go to the Upper Planes. In a way, it makes drow even more despicable than even fiends, since unlike other beings who try to secure better positions for their damned souls, all the drow do is whatever their spiteful bitch-goddess Lloth tells them, and then they get to enjoy a shitty time in the Demonweb Pits being her fuck-puppet for eternity. Drow deserve to be gassed in concentration camps, not pittied as "tragic" monsters. They are my favorite things to kill in DnD, and my rangers/paladins show them absolutely no mercy wherever they find them.

Exactly (with the caveat that commoners are as abused as nobles, but with 0 benefits). There's also one thing: in FR, at least, they know a different life, because they have alternative deities who go out of their way to reach for them (and who led them to true civilization and prosperity--Ilythiir and Miyeritar--before Lolth reared her ugly head in the Realms) Yet, in over 10k+ years, the vast majority of drow still has faith in Lolth. With 0 meaningful changes, over such a long time of living like shit? Lolwut (also, chaos my ass, that's only strife and stagnation at its finest).
>>
>>66857684
Lolth can't even make life short and horrible for such people, once they give her the middle finger and escape. The hard part is getting away from the Underdark, but then Eilistraee and her followers are known to actively help them with that. I mean, there are entire communities of surface drow devoted to Eilistraee, yet they don't magically fall into the Abyss because of Lolth.

I pretty much only play Int classes. Wizards are my main one, but I also like factotums. Archivist lets me try my hand at divine casters.

Definitely. I've asked the IRL lorekeepers at minmax for good prestige classes. They recommend Sacred Exorcist, Contemplative, Sovereign Speaker, Loremaster, and Paragnostic Apostle.

I played an Archivist once who had taken to books for divine power because the gods never saw fit to bless him with spells as a Cleric. PC levels for NPCs were kind of rare in that game, but what few Clerics did exist I was very jealous of.

What's the best way to portray neutral evil char?

Current PC is NE. He's a failed bandit (first level fighter) taking up wizardry to get a leg up against the rich and powerful. Totally self-interested, willing to break stuff, steal things, and kill people to get ahead, but also well aware of the benefits of cooperation. So, be evil without being antisocial, have your evil actions serve a coherent purpose, and walk the line between being a functioning member of society and a total asshole. Y'know, like most people in real life ;)
>>
Evil, so anywhere from "more selfish than average" to "eats babies". But also neutral, so he doesn't feel bound by a code but doesn't unreasonably chafe under rules or restrictions. Think more of a sociopath than a psychopath, in the purely colloquial sense of those words. Someone who relates to either people as if they were bundles of opportunities and obstacles rather than individuals. Under the right circumstances a neutral evil individual could fit very well into a group of society because his interests and incentives keep him there - unless he's "eats babies" evil, in which case he would probably leave for more fertile stalking ground, taking as much as he could without being worth hunting down later.

Play that aspect up to make them memorable - the guy who seem totally normal, or maybe slightly off, up until the math changes and he uses you up and leaves you for dead, with no warning.

Not even in the generally selfish way most people have where they feel kinda bad about other people's suffering and will help others if it doesn't especially inconvenience them.
As in
>I would torment children en masse without a blink of hesitation to send my kid to wizard school
I kind of want to do a set of traditional fantasy parents like this.
Everyone's heard of that adventurer dad that stepped out for a set of magic cigarettes and never came back while the long-suffering mother somehow makes ends meet. Except this time the man that mother dearest 'whores herself out to' is actually the adventurer dad who puts a buffer between him and his family so that when the avenger comes a knocking he's the one that takes the fall.
Bonus points if the PC thinks his mother is being abused but she's always been on board with it.
Maybe I should swap the sexes just for kicks. 'Single' father trains his son while taking secret missions to dispatch his baby momma's enemies while she rakes in the dough and funnels it to him as needed.

I want to start playing marines. Currently I have:

*1 easy-to-build intercessor kit
*1 blind box tactical sergeant (the one with the grav pistol/chainsword)
*3 blind box tacticals with bolters
*1 store anniversary primaris captain (the plasma pistol/powerfist one)
*a spare power fist and power sword bit

Is there a good starting list I can make from this? What else should I pick up to work it up to a proper roster?
Also what chapter tactic would be a good choice?

Ressurection in 5e requires a diamond worth 1000gp itself, this diamond is consumed on the casting. Now think about it, how difficult would it be to get a diamond that meets this criteria? Also keep in mind wedding ring diamonds are a literal scam perpetuated by the De Beers company since they own directly or indirectly diamond mining and production solely.
Seriously if people would just read spells then actually enforce their requirements there'd hardly be a need to ban any because it should be as easy as walking down to the diamond store and grabbing one.

Your party is sleeping in the wilderness, with one among them on watch. A dozen scouts, working as bounty hunters, approach. The scouts are armed with leather armor, shortswords, and longbows. In a flash, they pincushion the one on watch with 24 arrows, taken by complete surprise from 150 feet away. They skulk up to the sleeping party and slit throats.

How arrogant does your party have to be to think they stand even the slightest chance of living against competent assassins out to kill them? Realistically, if someone wants you dead, you are dead. They will catch you off guard no matter what.

Which would STILL be noticed in the middle of the fucking night. If the camp is close enough to illuminate the player so that the assassins could see their target, then the camp is also close enough that the light could be seen by said player. Furthermore, given that the light source is closer to the assassins, they'd likely be visible to the player. So now we roll initiative, and he wakes up the party.
