|Inhabitants of Agatha's Grove|
The banshee's home was constructed out of a dome of branches with a single hole for an entrance, where individuals had to get on hands and feet to crawl through the opening. Once inside the structure, Agatha placed a mirror on the far wall to help create illusions of herself. The final room in her tree cave was the treasure room.
|“||A home of sorts is sheltered within the dome of woven branches. It is sparsely furnished with chests, shelves, a table, and a reclined couch, all of it old and of elven craft.||”|
|— The Lost Mines of Phandelver|
Agatha's lair used to be guarded by a magic mirror spell, which hid her exact location for intruders and give her time to hurl spells. After the robbery of her mask, Agatha built new defenses around her home. Her spells enabled her to charm owlbears and she convinced the villagers of Conyberry to dig pitfall traps around her grove. These townsfolk had also been seen guarding her lair. In addition, Agatha wedged wands into trees throughout her haunt and aimed them toward the path to her grove.
|“||Evil brooded here, and if either he or Wulfgar had any doubts about the legend of the banshee, they knew better now.||”|
|— R.A. Salvatore, The Halfling's Gem|
In 1356 DR, Companions of the Hall Drizzt Do'Urden and Wulfgar stole a magical mask from Agatha's treasure hoard. After this event, Agatha took up looting the Dessarin area to rebuild her hoard. Around 1370 DR, Agatha added new defenses to her grove.
