An ash zombie was a special type of undead created by the powerful energies released in the wake of the eruption of Mount Hotenow, in 1451 DR.[2] People also called them scrabblers and dustwalkers.[3]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Ash zombies were normal undead warped and mutated by the powerful energies released by the eruption of Mount Hotenow.[2]

Ash zombies were capable of creating unnatural ashes from their bodies and using them as a weapon.[2] When attacked, a puff of this ash might erupt from the ash zombie.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Ash zombies first appeared after the eruption of Mount Hotenow.[2]

When the Red Wizards of Thay discovered them, around 1463 DR, they began to research ways to create ash zombies artificially. They also discovered that ash zombies developed a taste for younger victims.[2]

Around 1479 DR, ash zombies were common in the abandoned parts of Neverwinter,[3] and in Thundertree.[4]
