Neverwinter: The Year of the Ageless One
Sept of Ill'Ghact
The Sept is fully described on pages 74-77 of Menzoberranzan: The City of Intrigue.
The Sept is a conclave of mind flayers active in the Northdark and known to have a difficult relationship with the drow of Menzoberranzan. Sometimes the illithids and the drow co-operate; other times they are at war.
- Many slavers in the North sell their captives to the Sept, truly a fate worse than death for many.
- The corpses of several of Neverember’s mercenaries have been found floating around the docks with large circular holes in the head and their brains removed. The harbourmaster, Len-jes, is careful to remove the bodies as quickly as possible, not just for morale, but because they have a tendency to attract lacedons (aquatic ghouls). This tends to suggest that there is a mind flayer – or flayers – operating in Neverwinter.
