A carp was a type of fish found on Toril.


Giant golden carpEdit

Giant golden carp were found in Scalewater, a pond south of the Thunder Peaks. A red dragon guarded this pond.

In 1367 DR, a sage in Thunderstone received from an explorer a deceased giant golden carp from Scalewater. Examining it, this sage found the carp had died of a gill rot sickness and estimated that all the carp in the pond would die by year's end. The sage feared the dragon would then retaliate against nearby villages. However, the disease could be treated with an antidote brewed from the shells of popper shrimp.[1]
