The Cult of the Shadow, or Cult of the Shadows, was a temple of Shar in the city of Tsurlagol in the Vast in the 1360s DR.

The temple doubled as a thieves guild, acting as the headquarters of the Sharwomen.

The identity of its high priestess was unknown, but she was also head of the Sharwomen.[3][1]



  • Despite its name, the Cult of the Shadow was in all cases described as a temple, not as an organization of Shar-worshipers.
