was a Netherese
and a lich
. He was the former Sorcerer-King of the enclave of Jiksidur
in ancient Netheril
and later the master of the Warlock's Crypt
and Shadow King of its undead inhabitants. He was one of the oldest non-draconic
beings in Faerûn
and one of its most powerful mages, as well as one of the few surviving Netherese sorcerer-kings.
A lich of extreme age, Larloch's body was greatly decayed, leaving only his white-boned skeleton, with two orbs of red light in place of eyes. Streaks of emerald energy moved about his body, and at least two dozen ioun stones floated around his skull. He was also insane, his mind affected by his extreme age. Sometimes he could be calm and even whimsical. Other times he was crazed, snarling and launching spells at random.
Larloch possessed incredible power and was a superintelligent genius. He sought only greater arcane Art and was a talented and cunning inventor of new spells, magic items, and magical techniques and strategies. He forged the Death Moon Orb artifact. He was a master of curse magic, and modified many of his own spells and abilities in surprising ways. He enjoyed inflicting horrible transformations and curses on those who failed him or trespassed in his tower. He also performed cruel necromantic experiments on captured travelers.

Here are a dozen of the most terrifying tales of the haunted Realms.

Actor Ansel Elgort (The Divergent Series) is in early talks to star in the movie.
According to rumor, it will be called The Hand of Chaos and will be a fantasy action-adventure in the style of Indiana Jones or Guardians of the Galaxy, with a warrior with a flaming sword, a cunning gnome cutpurse, a warlock, and a half-dragon going on a quest for a mythical treasure.
