The Wood of Sharp Teeth, formerly called the Glimmerwood,[1] was a dense forest south of the River Chionthar, southeast of Baldur's Gate and southwest of Scornubel. It was a wilderness except for Durlag's Tower on the forest's southern edge. Uldoon Trail was the nearest route to the forest.[citation needed]

Locations[edit | edit source]

The forest contained the site of the ruined (as of 1374 DR) city of Vehlarr.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

Before it was named Wood of Sharp Teeth, it was called Glimmerwood by the elves of Askavar, who no longer lived there by the 14th century DR.[1]

By 1369 DR, the Twisted Rune had placed a magical gate in the area to allow for instantaneous movement to other locations.[3]

For a brief period in the 15th century DR, the forest was known as the Werewoods. Former Grand Duke Valarken was rumored to live there after his failed coup in Baldur's Gate. He and his lycanthrope followers were trying to rebuild Vehlarr.[4]

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

The forest was home to satyrs, dryads, and a small number of werewolves, and some believe wolfweres also dwelt within.[2]
