The Shadow Network is a criminal syndicate within Tyr that is supposedly operated by the Templar in charge of Tyr’s defense, Dark. There are several measures of seperation that keep Dark away from any proof of involvement, but many believe it to be true.
The Shadow Network is involved in a large amount of criminal activity within Tyr, much of which is at the opposition of other City Council members who seem to be lobbying for more magical rights and permits with preservation magic. The exact extent of the Shadow Network’s reach and influence is unknown.
The only known information of the Shadow Network that the players have comes from their captiv, Astara.
