Well met, traveler!

You hold in your hands an amusing and insightful guide to Waterdeep - the metropolis of the North, the City of Splendors. This handy pouch-sized tome presents Volo's choice of the finest, most spectacular, and least known (but most desired) information about the people, customs, and locations in Waterdeep - ranked with a handy coin, dagger, pipe, and tankard ratings system.

Discover:

  • What it's like to attend a private party hosted by Waterdhavian nobles,
  • Where Waterdeep's ghosts walk,
  • Legends and clues about famous, as-yet-unrecovered treasures,
  • What fare a typical Waterdhavian menu offers you,
  • The best moon-kissed spots to meet Waterdhavians of the opposite sex,
  • Waterdeep's best shops and craftsmen,
  • The best places to dine, stay, see -- and, of course, avoid!
Special note: This edition of Volo's Guide to Waterdeep, intended for travelers from beyond the borders of Faerûn, contains notes and commentary by the famous archmage and sage Elminster."
