Waterdeep's Notice Boards: Quest Seeds for the City of Splendors and Skullport


This title is also available in the Waterdeep Notice Boards Bundle for 20% off!


Waterdeep's Notice Boards - A collection of 42 quest seeds in Waterdeep and Skullport. Pit your players against criminal masterminds, monsters from the deep, or seemingly unsolvable mysteries. Waterdeep! Come for the adventure, stay for the outstanding payment.

Get Ready for Waterdeep!

Waterdeep is a bustling metropolis and adventure lurks behind every corner. To spare you some of the trouble that comes with fleshing out an entire city, I present 42 quest seeds that you can run as presented or alter to your heart's desire. The meat of the quest seeds are the notice boards that you are encouraged to print out and use to impress your players. The quests were made with a Dragon Heist or Dungeon of the Mad Mage campaign in mind. Most of the quests can be solved in the city proper, but some lead your players into Undermountain, Waterdeep's underbelly. A few quests might even prove to be unsolvable and only foreshadow a future event.

What is Included?

This product includes 42 quest seeds with advice and pointers on how to solve or approach the quest. The quests are organized across 9 different noticeboards whose preview you can see below. The product also includes the noticeboards' templates in case you want to reorganize the quests or even add your own! This means noticeboards without notes, boards and notes without text, and notes without the boards!

Fantasy Grounds!

You can find the VTT version here: Notice Board: 42 Quests for Waterdeep and Skullport (Fantasy Grounds)


These notice boards are presented to you by author Christian Eichhorn and editor Christopher Walz. You can contact me via mail ( or via Twitter (@squirrelgolem).

SOooo.. I was going to buy the FG version, disassemble it and try to use it for Foundry. Then I read a post on there saying that all of the images used were too low resolution anyway. Then I read the developer of the FG module said that the images they got from you were that way to start with. SO..

I figured that I would just nip it in the bud, and ask you personally if I can get my hands on the source images to attempt to develop my own message board to use in Foundry.

Please? :D

The product includes all templates, which means single notes with text and notice boards without text. Naturally, the boards with text are included as single files as well. There are no source images available that have better resolution—this is the best quality available. A board has a resolution of 1275x1650 px. While that's not print quality, it's more than enough for display purposes I believe. I have no idea what the problem with the FG version is or if that's not enough for some users. If you're just looking for high-resolution paper textures, check out ( That's where I got everything I used in this product.

If you're looking for 300DPI pre-prepared empty boards, check out this product here:

Hope that helps! :)

Yeah I have no idea what happened in the FG product either, even your small images here look clear enough you could probably sharpen them and use them on a larger scale. Anyway, I REALLY wanted the Saltmarsh version for use in an ocean based campaign. I'll go ahead and get the City and Town as well, if that's got more DPI, to give me some breathing room. I don't need the print quality, I honestly just want to import the whole mess in to Foundry and see if I can set it up to make custom Billboard content on the fly. If not, I'll work with what I've got. :)

I did browse through a couple of your full-size preview books. Your plot hooks are awesome, so I'm going to go ahead and just buy the ones that I can use for that oceanic campaign, and do what I can to import it in to Foundry. ,,OH YEAH! Did you know that your Waterdeep 2 preview book link is broken? Just an FYI. :)

Thanks, much appreciated! And double thanks for pointing out the broken preview. That must have been broken for AGES. It's fixed now :D

I love all your notice boards and have purchased them all.

BUT...why are the individual notices in this pack all on one file? Your other notice boards have all the individual notices as separate files. I find that much easier to mix and match rather than having to open the one file, hunt for the one notice I need, carefully cut out the notice and paste it. I ended up doing that for all 42 notices and I found it to be tedious. Could you provide an upload that has all the notices as individual .pngs as you do in your other board quest packs?

Hey Adam, thanks so much! The reason is that this here is technically the oldest release after I made a big update to the 50 Quest Seeds. So this is just how it was back in the day ;) Nevertheless, I uploaded a new zip file with the individual notes. Turns out I even forgot to include one in the big file, so all is well. Have fun!

Do you think you could include a download of all the empty pictures not stacked over each other? Similar to how you included all of the pages and templates with the quest dialogue, but without them? I'd like to use your papers to make my own custom quests but as it is most of them are layered and hard to utilize. Still worth a purchase, just asking if you could add the blank templates in a manner similar to how you included them all filled in on a separate image.

thanks for the purchase! You can download the textures I used for the notes from here as transparent png files for free:

I didn't include them since this would violate the TOC of the website.

After that you might ask yourself where I got the different fonts. Those I found on these websites:, and

Best of luck! :D

im freaking out. There is that crypted message with a cat on it but i didn't found anything about. It's a free interpretation hint? Maybe about the black viper?

No, it's in there. It's called "Hidden Stash". But before you look it up: Try to decode it. Someone on Reddit figured it out on his own from my promo picture and won the secret giveaway challenge. So it's certainly possible ;D

"Scrupulous" means honest or careful.

Oh, thanks! I think in one case it can remain as is but in the other case (Private Eye Hires!) I meant unscrupulous. Will be fixed eventually! ;D

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.
