Dungeons & Dragons
Neverwinter Wood is located in Northwest Faerûn, and possesses a sense of magic within it. Coming from Mount Hotenow, the Neverwinter River flows through the woods of Neverwinter. The elves originally called Neverwinter Wood the Llewyrrwood and the forest came to be a colony for Illefarn. As of 1374 DR, elves still live in the wood, though they make up one of the largest cells of the Eldreth Veluuthra, with other smaller cells operating in the surrounding area.
After the Spellplague, Neverwinter Wood experienced a mass migration of fey from the plane of Faerie. Elves were also drawn here in large numbers and they attempted to refound Iliyanbruen within the forest’s borders. Though they had to defeat a force of dark fey to reclaim their anscestral home, they quickly went about establishing the military outpost of New Sharandar around a portal to Faerie.
