The Gulthmere Forest marked the boundary between the Dragon Coast and the Vilhon Reach in central Faerûn. It was an overgrown forest of pine and cedar that was sacred to the god Nobanion and his followers.[1] To those within the Reach, it was known as the "seat of power" for the lands' druids.[2]

GeographyEdit

The terrain of the forest was hill country, leading up to the Orsraun Mountains in the south. The land had rich mineral deposits and so was coveted by miners.[1]

Notable LocationsEdit

Cedarsproke
A small city, in the heart of the forest, that served as a druidic stronghold. Despite their presence in the area, the city was not a settlement of the Emerald Enclave.[2]
Gurnth
This village, located in the forest's depths, was home to a cult of Nobanion-worshipers.[3]

HistoryEdit

During the Time of Troubles, the forest was the location of a great battle between Nobanion and the god Malar. With the help of his druid allies, Nobanion kept Malar from entering the the Reach, and the Beastlord was forced to turn north.[3]

In 1368 DR the Fellowship of the Purple Staff established themselves within the forest, and by 1372, had founded three small hamlets in its northeastern region. Although they were originally resisted by the Nobanionites, who mistook their actions for wanton slaughter of wildlife, the two groups formed a steady alliance. The fellows of these settlements built roads to trade with nearby Amry and Telpir as well the subterranean dwarven miners.[4]
