The Thornwood was a forest by the Lake of Steam.

GeographyEdit

The River Minta flowed through it from Erlkazar to the Lake of Steam and out to the Shining Sea.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Thornwood was once part of the elven nation of Thearnytar, which fell to the dark elves at the end of the Second Crown War.

As of 1372 DR, it was inhabited by evil humanoids and at least one beholder.

By 1369 DR, the Twisted Rune had placed a magical gate in the forest to allow for instantaneous movement to other locations.[2]

Notable LocationsEdit

Rumors and LegendsEdit

  • There was a legend that every ten years, in a particular grove in the forest, the Green's Sword would sprout and could be claimed by anyone using it to fight evil.[4]
  • Rumors of ancient repositories of elven magic and treasure from the time of Thearnytar never died down, though whether they were left by moon elves or dark elves was debated.[3]
