Members of the Lords' Alliance

The Lords' Alliance, also known as the Council of Lords, is a partnership of merchant cities, founded in 1325 DR. [3][4] Its members are from the North and Western Heartlands, Waterdeep, Silverymoon, and Neverwinter, as well as other free cities and towns in the region, which make up the bulk of the organization. It was formed to oppose the growing influence of the Black Network in the North, as well as the Shadow Thieves of Amn who have clawed out a foothold for themselves in Waterdeep once more.

The alliance has hired adventurers to work for them in the past for tasks ranging from gathering simple information, or even for use in raids against Zhentarim strongholds and outposts. Local adventurers can quickly gain status, as well as powerful friends by helping the alliance, but can just as easily make enemies of the sinister Zhentarim as a result.
