Roaringhorn (pronounced: /ˈrɔːrɪŋhɔːrnROR-ing-horn[2]) was a noble house of Waterdeep. Both the Waterdhavian and Cormyrean branches of the family had a historical reputation for being bold, impetuous, and living with a zest for life. Their detractors characterized them as reckless, boorish, and lustful.[3]


As of the Year of the Tankard, 1370 DR, they bred horses in Amphail, where they owned an estate and had personal guards. The head of the family had six nieces, all of whom were wizards. These nieces used their magic to keep watch for thieves and other ill-doers.[4]

Base of Operations[]

The Roaringhorn Villa, known as the "High House of Roaringhorn", was located in the North Ward, on the west side of Belzound Street between Tarsar's Street and Suldown Street.[5][6]
