Thundertree was a small village in the plains east of Neverwinter, in the time of 1365 DR. It was destroyed in 1451 DR.

It was a source of wood and Zalantar.[1] Also it is known as the home of Aribeth de Tylmarande.[citation needed]

Description Edit

" A dirt road hugs the base of the hill and wends its way between old stone houses, many of which are roofless ruins with interiors open to the weather. Other buildings appear more or less intact. The whole place is eerily silent."
— Lost Mine of Phandelver

Thundertree, by the time of 1451 DR, was an overgrown wasteland. All the building have been destroyed and its interior open to the weathers.[2]

History Edit

Thundertree was once a community that prospered on the edges of the Neverwinter Woods. However, when Mount Hotenow erupted in 1451 DR, it devastated the small town. In the wake of the disaster, zombies drove off any who survived the eruption. Sometime in the 1480 DR, the zombies have crumbled to dust, but strange magic had turned the local flora into twig blights.[2]

Inhabitants Edit

By the time of 1451 DR, no one inhabited the ruins of Thundertree. There were two exceptions: Reidoth and Venomfang.[2]

  • Reidoth was a gaunt, white-bearded human druid that visits the ruins of Thundertree from time to time, keeping any from wandering into the dangers that lurk within the ruins.
  • Venomfang was a young green dragon that had taken the ruins of Thundertree as his own lair as of approximately 1480 DR. The Cult of the Dragon had followed the dragon and hoped to gain its alliance.
