Shadowtop was a type of common tree that grew throughout Faerûn.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Shadowtops could grow to be 90 feet tall, growing at a rate of two feet a year. Their irregular, feathering leaves grew at the very top of the tree, having dark green tops and a coppery hue on the underside.[2] The tops of Shadowtops were prone to fire.[3]

UsageEdit

Shadow-wood was fibrous, making it undesirable for building but good for ropemaking. The fibrous wood was good for cookfires as it burned hot and slow without giving off much smoke.[2] Shadowtop torches, which could be purchased for 1 sp, burned longer than other wood torches and gave off less smoke.[4]

Shadow-wood was used to make magical staves and rods.[1] The dagger Applebane had a shadow-wood handle.[5]

HistoryEdit

Shadowtop trees flourished in 1314 DR.[6]
