The Moonwood is a large forest north of Silverymoon in the Silver Marches.[1]


The Moonwood is dominated by evergreens, shadowtops, and duskwoods.[3]


Although the Moonwood is known to be free of orcs and other goblinkind, orc tribes frequently raid the outer edges of the forest for lumber.[citation needed] The forest is known to be full of lycanthropes, mostly in the north corner. Many of these lycanthropes are members of the People of the Black Blood, while others are members of the Eldreth Veluuthra.[1] As of 1374 DR, the two organizations often clashed, and the greater number and superior organization of the People of the Black Blood meant the odds were in their favor.[4] The southern section of the Moonwood is home to small bands of moon elves.[3]
