An ash zombie is a variation of zombie unique to the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. Ash zombies were created in the magical devastation of Neverwinter, following the eruption of Mount Hotenow. Ash zombies are attracted to life forces, especially those of the young. When an ash zombie is struck, ash puffs off the creature, which weakens those around it.
Ash zombies first appeared in the Neverwinter Campaign Setting (2011) for Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition, and returned in Lost Mine of Phandelver in the Starter Set (5e) (2014) for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition.
