Lost Mines of Phandelver
In recent years, the Zhentarim have become more visible in the world at large, as the group works to improve its reputation among the common people . The faction draws employees and associates from many walks of life, setting them to tasks that serve the goals of the Black Network but aren’t necessarily criminal in nature. Agents of the Black Network must often work in secret, and are frequently proficient in deception. They seek aid from the wizards, mercenaries, merchants and priesthoods allied with the Zhentarim.
