Princes of the Apocalypse
This shadow network seeks to expand its influence and
power base throughout Faerun. Its members coerce,
persuade, or buy their way into every major area of
influence. Rogues and warlocks fill the Zhentarim’s
ranks, but the faction recruits any who can conduct its
business without too many moral reservations.
Zhentarim operatives might be found in any
settlement, but in the North the organization is based
in the Bargewright Inn. Zhentarim mercenaries and
spies meet within its many private chambers. The Black
Network disguises its ownership of the inn to avoid
unwanted attention. The organization also has a vested
interest in maintaining the prosperity of Yartar.
