Information from the FRCG

Zhentarim

• Orbakh is the only surviving Manshoon clone and leads the Zenths (mainly consisting out of Cyric guys now) from Stormwatch and Darkhold.

• The Zenths fight the Yakuza.

• The Baneites´made a deal with the Phaerim to controll the Dalelands.

• The Shades heard from that deal and destroyed Zhentil Keep. After that the Baneites fled, leaving the Cyric guys in charge.

• The goal of the new Zenths is freeing Cyric from his prison.

• Zhentil Keep is still in ruins and apparently inhabited by robbers and pirates.

Deities

• Mask is gone, but his exact faith is not mentioned.

• Cyric is still imprisoned and gets more insane. His clerics are not affected by all this.

• Deities have spheres again instead of portfolios

• Shar is Shadow based now instead of Darkness.

• Obould has the "Warrior" sphere.

• Fzoul has the "Service to Evil" sphere (divine butler?).

• Every deity not on the list is unavailable, but their exact fates is not always stated (for example Mask).

• Exarch = Demigod = ~Demigod Epic Destiny

• Masks's realm still exists. His former chosen visit from time to time and it is rumoured that it is filled with treasure.

• Torm got Tyr's Job and the sphere of Law and now sits in the realm of Cellestia. Hes especially worshipped in the Paladin realm of Elturgard.

• Tyr was apparently killed while fighting off a demon invasion. Cryric or his followers had likely something to do with that or even stroke the killing blow.

• Velsharoon was destroyed.

Bane

• Hoar likely serves Bane.

• Tiamat serves Bane.

• Loviatar is Banes consort.

• The church of bane is still strong, even with the loss of Zenthil Keep and the citadel of the Raven.

• Bane taking Lovitar as consort was a political move. He is now worshipped also by evil dwarfs. Also, he absorbed the goblin deities further strengthening himself.

Afterlife

• Kelemvor apparently has to deal with all the dead now, not only with the False&Faithless. The deities only pick souls up they really like.

• No mention of the Wall found.

• Souls can fade away out of existence.

• Souls that refuse to pass on come back as ghosts and other incorporeal beings.
