Welcome to Waterdeep

Famed explorer Volothamp Geddarm needs you to complete a simple quest. Thus begins a mad romp through the wards of Waterdeep as you uncover a villainous plot involving some of the city's most influential figures.

A grand urban caper awaits you. Pit your skill and bravado against villains the likes of which you've never faced before, and let the dragon hunt begin!

A Dungeons & Dragons® adventure for characters of levels 1–5. For use with the fifth edition Player's Handbook®, Monster Manual®, and Dungeon Master's Guide®.

ChronologyEdit

The adventure takes place after the events described in Hoard of the Dragon Queen, The Rise of Tiamat, Princes of the Apocalypse,[1] and Tomb of Annihilation,[2] but does not directly depend on them. It is not set in a particular year, but is assumed to be the Year of Three Ships Sailing, 1492 DR (see note).
