In the Forgotten Realms, five factions have risen to prominence. These factions seek to further their own aims while opposing destructive forces that threaten the folk of Faerûn. Each faction has its own motivations, goals, and philosophy. Some are more heroic than others, but all band together in times of trouble to thwart major threats.

Characters don’t have to become a member of a faction right away, or at all. Belonging to a faction sometimes means having responsibilities, but it also carries with it support and rewards for service.

Player factions:

Order of the Gauntlet
Emerald Enclave
Lords’ Alliance

All new members of an organization receive an insignia of their faction, fashioned into a wearable or held item:

Harpers – Pin
Order of the Gauntlet – Pendant
Emerald Enclave – Leaf clasp
Lords’ Alliance – Signet ring (symbol palm side)
Zhentarim – Gold coin (stamped symbol)

Factions of the Dessarin Valley:

The Knights of Samular


Princes of the Apocalypse Zapi Zapi
