List of Forgotten Realms organizations
This is a list of fictional organization from the Forgotten Realms campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. Many of these groups have appeared in the multiple series of novels and video games set in the Forgotten Realms.
Cult of the Dragon
Although its founding date is unknown, the Iron Throne is well over twenty years old, and was first heard of in 1356 DR. Little is known of this mysterious merchant organization's history or the identity of its backers. The Iron Throne operates through its agents, which are mostly thugs and brigands. There is a high turnover rate, and agents need to be replaced often. The group is often in conflict with the Zhentarim. The organization apparently operates independently from any government, and has earned quite a bad public image after being charged with attempted assassinations, extortion, thuggery, trading weapons to hostile nonhuman tribes and trafficking in smoke powder, poisons and drugs. The Iron Throne was introduced within the tabletop version of Dungeons & Dragons, but is the key antagonist group in the original Baldur's Gate video game.
