The Nobility of Waterdeep





The upcoming "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist" will undoubtedly be a launching point for many new campaigns. Waterdeep is a grand city with a storied history. Part of that history is the establishment of the noble families who live in the city and bring it prosperity.

Contained within you'll find a listing for many of the major noble houses of Waterdeep, what their interests are, where they are situated, and quest ideas for DMs running noble oriented games. This resource will be invaluable for providing the historical texture of Waterdeep to any game of intrigue set there.

Super useful product! Just a couple of things. There are a couple of major houses missing. The two that spring to mind are Roaringhorn, Umbrusk, Cassalanter, and Neverember (who despite Dagult being in Neverwinter, his son is still in Waterdeep and a part of the nobility).

Only other comment would be that the page corners should be reversed, as the first read page is typically on the right (number in the bottom corner)

I appreciate the feedback. The "Big" houses I left out because I'm sure they'll be used in Dragonheist and I didn't want to stray too far from canon even preemptively.

The pages, I guess I could insert an intentional blank page, but I figured either you're printing it double sided (in which case the "cover" is behind page 1, and page 1 being on the left) or you're not in which all pages are on the right and the corners don't matter.

Do you think I should add the blank page?

No stress, I thought after I'd posted that it might be the case as I kept going... hannggg on what about XYZ like Jardeth and Amcathra. And no stress on the page count at all. Just an observation. Great product all round and beautifully laid out!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
