Hello.
I'm currently planning my LARP character, who went through a few serious sh*tstorms thanks to our GMs. Details aside for the moment, as a result I need to become a seriously high-standing Sharran agent. Preferably nominated by Shar personally, which is kinda alright, because the character has already seen a few gods and is a really curious case. I'm a total zero in Sharran lore and I need help to add the missing links to the story.
Basic details: human again (was a lich, don't ask -_-), high-level dark magic user, quite notorious as well venerated as a hero by some, in between Lawful Evil and Chaotic Neutral.
"Last page" so far: is thrown back into the devastated and undead-infested Neverwinter. Disoriented, almost helpless and trying to stay alive. He reaches his former mentor's library (the mentor was the grand poobah of all the local wizards, also a secret illithid). The library wasn't ravaged due to powerful wards and secret location, so there is still a ton of SERIOUS goodies there. The character takes something and... *gap* ...vows to weaken Sharess to let his mistress Shar devour her. Becomes a shade-like non-cleric agent of Shar.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm kinda out right now. Maybe something from the Palace of Loss? An enclosed essence of some long-defeated Nightbringer or some other deity high-level follower? A special contract?

Thanks!

And then we drink.

Sounds like some sort of possession, or control from a magical item curse.

Do you still have this "something" or at least know where and how to access it? And what is it anyway? A weapon? worn item? To pile on Masked Mage's conjecture of a cursed magic item, I would check if said item was crafted through the Shadow Weave. I would expect your spellcasting would have to shift from Mystra's Weave to the Shadow Weave if you are to be a highly placed Sharran agent.

The above seems good! The Ring of Winter for instance is made using the weave, but is still intelligent and possessive. The wearer may not know all about Auril or whatever made the ring, just knows it wants "X" ... Similar object made by Shar would have profound differences. The goddess needs you to do something, will get some power so you can do it, but basically it's based on need to know. Here is a start at shadow weave stuff and items;

Intelligent magic weapon with greater ability scores than yours. Yes that door stop that looked like a dagger wasn't just a dagger. Or maybe you ate a snail?
