Thundertree was a small village in the plains east of Neverwinter on the edge of the Neverwinter Wood, standing around 1365 DR.[1] It was destroyed by 1451 DR.[2]


It was a source of timber.[1]


By 1451 DR, Thundertree lay in overgrown ruins, with many of its stone houses lacking roofs and laying open to the elements, though some remained mostly intact. It was disturbingly quiet.[2]


Thundertree was once a community that prospered on the edges of the Neverwinter Woods.[2]

However, when Mount Hotenow erupted in the Year of Knowledge Unearthed, 1451 DR, it devastated the small town.[2]

In the wake of the disaster, zombies drove off any who survived the eruption. By 1481 DR, the zombies had crumbled to dust, but strange magic had turned the local flora into twig blights.[2]


By 1481 DR, no one inhabited the ruins of Thundertree, but for two exceptions:[2]

  • Reidoth was a gaunt, white-bearded human druid who visited the ruins of Thundertree from time to time, keeping any from wandering into the dangers that lurked within the ruins.[2]
  • Venomfang was a young green dragon who had taken the ruins of Thundertree as his own lair as of approximately 1480 DR. The Cult of the Dragon had followed the dragon and hoped to gain its alliance.[2]

Thundertree was also known as the home of Aribeth de Tylmarande in the mid–14th century DR.[3]
