Both.I went hunting for a couple of days, and it looks like during my absence something weird happened. At least I have a wild duck.
I certainly can get behind getting rid of fictional races being coded as real-world oppressed minorities, but just removing all the stereotypes about all the fictional groups is, honestly, real weird.
Maybe I'm missing something, but are drow based on stereotypes about dark-skinned people, or are they just evil bastards who happen to have a dark skin?
See the biggest issue with these discussions is that people try to insist that there is one, and only one, interpretation to something.
That's not true.
So drow are certainly both based on stereotypes AND are just evil bastards who happen to have dark skin.
That's how interpretation works. There is no single right answer. If you can support the interpretation, then it is true, for a given value of truth. Things would go a lot easier if people would remember that.
