- This article is about the city; for other uses, see Waterdeep (disambiguation).
Waterdeep is situated above several entrances to Undermountain, which led to it being the starting location of the Hordes of the Underdark campaign. In addition, it played a key, yet unvisited, role in the original campaign as it was from Waterdeep that the creatures used to cure the plague were obtained.
Hordes of the Underdark campaign Edit
While the Hordes of the Underdark campaign begins in Waterdeep, only a small portion of the city is accessible. (The restriction is explained as a way to contain invaders from Undermountain; it also allowed BioWare to devote less time on the city, leaving more time to develop the adventure.) Chief among the accessible locations is the Yawning Portal, the inn that provides the initial access to Undermountain and adventure. Also accessible are Argali's Arms (a weapons store), Little Musings and Magic Shoppe (run by Sobrey), and a few houses that can be broken into. Closed but visible locations include the docks and the Empty Keg Tavern.
Persistent worlds Edit
