“The mind flayers, as a race, do have a goal, and their leaders devote much effort toward finding a way to achieve it. Because they loathe the light of day and hate being limited to the confining chambers of the Underdark, the mind flayers quest to destroy that which bars them from the surface world: they seek to douse the fires of the sun itself!” DSG, page 74.
This sounds really cool until my brain thinks about it for a little bit. Like, if y'all put out the sun, entire ecosystems are gonna go to crap fast and THEN whose brains you gonna be eatin'?

The brains of all the things that live underground that will then be able to move to the surface and spread out.
Wonder if there are any planets out there that have life and don’t have a sun. I just always figured that energy worked it’s way down into the under dark through more typical routes: stuff eats veggies, gets eaten by something, that something goes down into the UD.

There are plenty of organisms that survive purely off of geothermal energy, so, probably.
