Drow Ambush (Underdark) is a mostly unavoidable encounter that is spawned by a party member passing a certain hidden proximity trigger mark on the map in the Underdark. This script is called DWSPAWN1.BCS and in turn launches a Cutscene, as well as a script CUT44A.BCS.

A group of five drow will teleport in near the causeway connecting the main Underdark with the northern Ust Natha (and Dark Cave) side area. A text will display during the Cutscene "A drow war party teleports into the area, the stench of sinister magic pervading all".

Once the cut scene ends the teleported drow war party will begin attacking.

This hostile Drow Patrol party is composed of five variously equipped drow warriors, and an armed priestess.
