The Dead Council is the governing body of the Black Tide of Thasmudyan. It is an autocratic leadership headed by fiends and undead lords. The group is held together by their common allegiance to Thasmudyan. Members of the Dead Council have the title First Dead for those serving on the First Dead Council and Second Dead for Black Tide's current government.


Second Dead Council (1612 - present)

Black Tide's current ruling body of undead lords is the Second Dead Council, the Second Dead. It was formed in 1612. The objective of this government is to rebuild the Black Tide and put her back on the world stage.

The group's influence extends beyond the world Bal-Kriav. This happened when the Dead Saint, representing Thasmudyan's interest on the world Kriav, joined the Second Dead Council.

In the Lich Front, 278 years after they were defeated in the Artery War (1546 - 1554), the Black Tide made her return to Brucrumus.

Even though it is a council, most consider Dax Jagg as the government's de-facto leader.

First Dead Council (1464 - 1612)

In 1464, the first government of the Black Tide was formed, calling themselves the Dead Council. A year later, in 1465 they started the Black Tide War (1465 - 1504). Of the First Dead Council, all but Rax were former members of the adventuring party Black Banner.

The objective of this government was the subjugation of the Lands of Purity and Hells Womb. On the religious side, they sought to convert all to the worship of Thasmudyan and accepting his "Ultimate Gift"; that is becoming an undead minion of the god of undead, and serving the whims of the Dead Council.

Leaders of the First Dead Council, had the title First Dead.
