The Hanging Tree of Ravencourt or the Magistree, was a spectral phenomenon that was localized in the area of Ravencourt, Waterdeep.
In appearance it resembled a typical Hangman tree, but it would only react to those who were unpunished for capital crimes, known or unknown.
The Magistree was actually the spirit of Magister Pallak Nharrelk of House Nharrelk who was slain by the corrupt Guildmasters in 1279 DR. The tree was considered an arm of the King's Justice.
Three men were judged by it in 1479 DR, after a recess of more than a century.
