Peril in Bloodstone
Bands and Organizations
These factions are organizations that have risen, been shattered, and risen again several times. Their longevity and resilience are largely due to their grassroots, secretive nature, and the near-autonomy of many of their members. The Harpers for instance, have "cells" and lone operatives throughout Faerun, although they interact and share information with one another from time to time as needs warrant.
Just as there are many strongholds in the hostile Bloodstone Lands, so there are many alliances and defensive pacts. Friendships may be built long and lasting among allies facing a common foe, and certainly the people of the Bloodstone Lands have enough foes in com- mon to go around.
Those with ill intent also band together for strength. After the demise of the Witch-King and the ensuing chaos, adventure and booty have been easier to locate, if no easier to take! Damara and Vaasa have attracted many traveling bands, adventurers both good and evil.
