Kryptgarden Forest (also known as Tsordvudd[1]) was located east of the Sword Mountains. It lay just west of the Long Road, and north of Waterdeep.[2]

A portion of Kryptgarden south of Phandalin was known as the "Crooked Forest" because some of the trees there had been bent by ancient creatures that dwelled there to indicate paths through the forest. Following the passage of Volothamp Geddarm through the area, the forest received more visitors than it had in decades, disturbing a number of treants and blights.[3] The forest contained many ruins of bygone dwarven civilizations.[4]


The forest was home to a small group of druids, known as the Dusk Circle, that maintained and protected the woods.[5]


In the Year of the Warrior Princess, 1489 DR, the Green Dragon Mask was recovered from the lair of Claugiyliamatar in Kryptgarden Forest. Old Gnawbone herself was injured while blows were struck against Thay, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Zartruss hobgoblin clan.[6]
