Fleetswake was a festival held in Waterdeep during the last tenday of Ches. It celebrated the sea and deities associated with it, as well as maritime activities.[1][2]

DescriptionEdit

The festival was dedicated to the sea itself, as well as maritime trade. Special respect was paid to all deities of Faerûn associated with the sea, navigation, and weather.[1]

LocationEdit

Most of the event's festivities took place in the Dock Ward, although taverns such as the Fiery Flagon in the Sea Ward also enjoyed intense activity during the holiday.[2]

ActivitiesEdit

The event's many activities included:[1]

During the entire event, ships were not charged the typical docking fees of the city, but their captains were expected to contribute with donations of at least 1 gp per day they remained docked.[1][2]

All donations collected in the festival were then consigned to Umberlee's Cache, a sunken treasure located in the deepest part of Deepwater Harbor that was fiercely protected by merfolk and surrounded by myths and legends.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

Different versions of the festival were known to be held in Waterdeep's harbor since long before the founding of the city, when trading caravans started meeting in the location from −1088 DR onwards.[1][6]
