There are going to be some serious changes, and whomever gets in the good graces of MH are likely going to be getting the better end of changes.

Military conquest by the MHs isn't really necessary to completely up end the world as they can simply give their preferred faction the knowledge to make better technology, and flood it with weapons like the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_Rolling_Block_rifle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XjlxwdHEEY and a large supply of high explosives and this would likely allow that faction to dominate the surface. The ability of the MHs to influence the course of the world is nigh unlimited.

An utter mess.

Let us be fair. Some people would seek a peaceful cooperation out of curiosity, until some people playing Mighty Human would try to patronize drow. And viceversa.

And then it all goes down on who can find the weakness first and stab without remorse.

...Every single drow could kill 500,000 humans a piece, and they would still be screwed just in the numbers game. That's without even touching on how half their tech wouldn't work without mana, or how they couldn't even hold any territory on earth without it... Which itself is ignoring a modern army's ability to make it literally rain death from clear over the horizon..


The drow would have exactly zero chance in a war with modern earth. The terrain of their caves might give them time to think about just how screwed they are, but it sure isn't enough to give them any hope of winning.

That isn't "Mighty Human" That is just superior numbers, logistics, and firepower... Like it isn't even a contest.


... But like I said before, not exactly sure what the humans are even supposed to want from the drow. They have some cool things, sure... But almost all of them would be completely useless to a human.

Well that and as I and many others said before the MH don't need to invade to upend Drow civilization, simply giving material and knowledge to any one faction will probably allow them to dominate the surface and a big theme in DT is that whoever controls the surface controls the future of the world, and for example simply cutting off food imports to the Drow cities below will send them into chaos.
