(Unearthed Arcana variant, p. 32)
Separated from the rest of the elven people by a legacy of deceit, betrayal, and evil, the drow are easily one of the most dangerous of the humanoid races. Most drow paragons embody all their race's evil nature and delight in calculated cruelty, but some manage to pull away from this dark path, instead embodying the potential that all elves share for beauty, grace, and martial skill.

All of the following are class features of the drow paragon class.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Drow paragons are proficient with all simple weapons, rapiers, longswords, and hand crossbows, and with light armor.
Spells per Day: At 1st and 3rd level, a female drow paragon gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in cleric. A male drow paragon instead gains new spells per day as if he had gained a level of wizard. The paragon does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (bonus metamagic feats, and so on). This essentially means that the character adds the level of drow paragon to her level in cleric or wizard, then determines spells per day and caster level accordingly.
If the drow paragon is female and has no levels in cleric, or is male and has no levels in wizard, this class feature has no effect.
Improved Spell-Like Abilities: At 1st level, a drow paragon gains one additional daily use of each of her innate spelllike abilities.
Improved Darkvision (Ex): At 2nd level, a drow paragon's darkvision range increases by 30 feet.
Light Sensitivity (Ex): A 2nd-level drow paragon's light blindness is lessened to light sensitivity. Instead of being blinded by bright light, she is merely dazzled in bright sunlight or within the radius of a daylight spell.
Ability Boost (Ex): At 3rd level, a drow paragon's Dexterity score increases by 2 points.
