5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Sept. 14 2006
Format:Paperback
This sourcebook is one of the most useful for an FR campaign, and can easily be imported to any other setting.

It details several major organizations, complete with minions, prcs, and statted NPCs galore, AND a location they'd be in (the well of dragons, various other towers and such noted in the FR setting, etc.) The massive Thayan enclave alone is useful for a night or three of gaming (PC rogues have to break in and steal something, or rescue someone, etc.).

Then it details minor organizations, some statted NPCs, and other things that will come in handy. There are loads of stats, and adventure ideas.

After that: Equipement! Think weird alchemical stuff, but also simple things like drugs that increase various stats (intellegence, charisma). You also get spells, PrCs, etc.

It's a really Crunchy book.

This was a relatively good book, in terms of the FR accessories. Some of the art seemed half-assed (not bad, just rushed), but its the book's content that really shines through here. As a FR Dungeon Master, i had plans to incorporate some evil organizations from what i learned in the Book of Vile Darkness (BUY IT! It's the best D&D book to date), and this book helped a lot.Aside from giving me some solid info on the organizations and characters i had planned on using, it also gave me some ideas for the campaign and quests, among other things. My only big complaint? The PRICE. i didn't get it on Amazon, because i hate waiting for anything (i want everything yesterday, if possible), and it was 24 bucks. Jesus! For a 150-page paperback! Other than that, it's a great book, and a very useful one for FR.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. Dec 15 2003
Format:Paperback
This is one of the FR books you should own. It's excellent, has lots of great prestige classes, depicts major and minor evil organizations in Faêrun, and also describes each organization's most important sites (with site maps and their respective keys, and NPCs). This is really useful, you can insert these sites in any adventure, in any geographical site in the realms, and build an adventure around it. Also, great spells and magic items. You won't regret buying this book, it's simply great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Evil Cults & Groups Galore! Nov. 20 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wonderfully put together, beautiful maps of the bad guyz' hideouts you can use for anything, the organizations and details on the NPC's can likewise be used with other side treks, etc. I personally look forward to using the Cormanthor Drow Elves and the Cult of the Dragon in my campaign.

5.0 out of 5 stars All our favorite bad guys! Sept. 18 2002
Format:Paperback
Truth be told, you probably have enough information in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting to pass through or conduct simple quests with regard to most of the evil groups of Faerun. All of the organizations in this book are mentioned, with varying detail, in the campaign. They are also described in Forgotten Realms novels, so if you have read a great deal of those, you might not need this accessory.
If you want to get into real detail with the powers of darkness and haven't read that much fiction, then this is the book to have. Even if you have done your homework, there's quite a lot of original material in here. As an example, if you'd like to actually visit the City of Shade, Lord of Darkness contains a wealth of information about how you would describe it. The campaign provides more simple demographics and locations than in-depth detail, so this is most welcome. There are also new encounters, weapons, and spells for the organizations, as well as some pre-made dungeons to explore. Specific points of interest in lands held by the enemy are also noted, as well as details on particular leaders of each order.
In all, every major evil organization is covered, as well as a host of lesser ones. Lords of Darkness has enough info about how they operate and what they look like to give a DM totally unacquainted with the FR setting the capability to correctly portray enemies and guide adventurers through enemy territory.
