The Black Council

During the last Millenium of the Third Age, rumours had emerged among the wise of a Council of Servants of the Shadow, a dark equivalent of the White Council acting as Sauron's inner circle. However little could be found out about the Black Council and it's members and deeds and so far all attempts to infiltrate it had failed.

After the Fall of Sauron, his highest Lieutenants became dark Diadochs and, despite many efforts to renew the Dark Council it eventually dissolved into warring factions, among whose the Black Cartel, the Derngorgor and the Snaga Lords were the most notorious.The Cult of Herumor had also been guessed to have had links to the former Black Council, though there had been little evidence to proof this.
