Dove's Silver Marches Campaign
Known as the Black Network the Zhenterim are an evil organization of traders, warriors, mages and priests. They control the Moonsea area and have spread their power throughout Faerun. Recently with the rise of Bane there has been a split in the organization. The eastern and more powerful section is lead by the High Cleric of Bane while the Western branch out of Darkhold is loyal to Cyric. The two branches still nominally work to the same ends but in the events leading up to the Inkclasm both sides had fielded armies against each other. Outside the religious turmoil the mages of the black network have been somewhat sidelined since Manshoon, the form co-leader and archmage, lost his battle with Fzoul, the current High Cleric of Bane, for control of the organization. Manshoon still acts as an independent agent however for the Zhenterim and wield incredible power in the organization.
