Knights of Goldenhawk Tower
The Cowled Wizards
A secret organization of arcane spell casters who are the real power behind everything that goes on in Amn. Wizards and other arcane spellcasters who were not members of the secret society were persecuted and imprisoned in Spellhold. Quagmire was a wizard that grew up in Amn and was constantly harassed and persecuted by The Cowled Wizards.
The most influential and wealthy people in Amn are most often members of The Cowled Wizards including the organizations head, Don Diego Barbosa. Their spies and agents are everywhere. The Emerald Cabal is a resistance group of wizards that fights against The Cowled Wizards. Recently Barbosa had most of them imprisoned in Spellhold until The Knights of Goldenhawk Tower freed them after an assault on Spellhold. This has turned the balance of power in favor of the Emerald Cabal and has broken The Cowled Wizard’s tight grip on Amn.
