Cragmaw Castle was a castle in Neverwinter Wood on the Sword Coast North in the late 15th century DR.[1]



Location of Cragmaw Castle in the Neverwinter region.

Cragmaw Castle lay in the southwest corner of the Neverwinter Wood, and northeast of the Cragmaw Hideout.[1]


The building was made of stone, and had several towers, many of which had collapsed. It had a well-protected main entrance, with two archer posts looking straight at any who would approach the castle. Cragmaw Castle also had a side entrance to the south that was far less guarded.[1]


The inside of the building had several traps laid around. The rooms consisted of barracks, storage areas, a banquet hall, a shrine to Maglubiyet, and the quarters of King Grol.[1]


After its initial construction, humans inhabited the castle.[1]

In the 15th century DR, it was inhabited by goblins, hobgoblins, a bugbear, a grick, a wolf, and an owlbear, as well as a doppleganger disguised as a drow elf.[1]


Though the castle later took the the name of the Cragmaw tribe in the 15th century DR, it was originally built by a noble wizard of Phalorm, and not the goblinoids.[1]

In 1491 DR, Cragmaw Castle was the home of King Grol of the Cragmaw tribe, before King Grol was slain by adventurers.[1]
