Xonthal's Tower was a tower in the Western Heartlands that housed the wizard Xonthal after 1361 DR.[1]


The tower became famous in the Realms for its unusual magical defenses, including the magical hedge maze that surrounded it.

In 13651366 DR, a group of Zhentarim under Hansibal Droun, a shopkeeper of the village near the tower, tried to conquer it for its strategic commercial value. However, Xonthal always defeated them.[2]

Just before the Tyranny of Dragons, the Cult of the Dragon managed to acquire the tower.[1]


During the Tyranny, the Cult's leaders based at the Tower were the dracolich traditionalists Jorgen Pawl and his lieutenant Iskander.[1]
