The Hanging Tree of Ravencourt or the Magistree, was a spectral phenomenon that was localized in the area of Ravencourt, Waterdeep.[1]


In appearance it resembled a typical Hangman tree, but it would only react to those who were unpunished for capital crimes, known or unknown.[2]


The Magistree was actually the spirit of Magister Pallak Nharrelk of House Nharrelk who was slain by the corrupt Guildmasters in 1279 DR.[1] The tree was considered an arm of the King's Justice.[1]

Three men were judged by it in 1479 DR, after a recess of more than a century.[1]
