Luz e Sombra
An active fringe of Bedine separatists yet resists the Empire of Netheril. These so-called Sand Kings are secretly supported by the Dalelands, Cormyr, Silverymoon, and Waterdeep. They have been infiltrated by the tattered remnants of the Zhentarim, and it’s difficult to tell the difference between a Bedine freedom fighter and a mercenary hoping to profit from the chaos of the armed resistance. One resistance fighter, Qambara El Ruhul, has pulled off several daring raids on Shadovar supply convoys.
