Shar's secretive monastic order was referred to as the Order of the Dark Moon.[1]


The Dark Moon acted openly in lands friendly to the worship of Shar. It also had secret sects in places where the faith of Shar was outlawed. The secret sects usually worked in rural settings or in hidden underground enclaves. The monks sought knowledge and wisdom from the shadows, in the belief that true understanding was within darkness and loss.[1] They tapped into the Shadow Weave through their powers of sorcery.
