The Plinth: A Waterdeep Location

Watermarked PDF

There are so many places to go in the City of Splendors that it can be hard for players to choose where to start. One of these locations, The Plinth, is a well known landmark that can be easily found, is open to all, and is a meeting place for many of the religious orders and political factions in Waterdeep. But can a temple shared by twenty faiths be a place of comfort? Why do select Seekers search here for clues to the Mother Source Heresy? What faiths will be granted a shrine here on Plinth Day? The veneer of civility is peeled away in this art-rich supplement that provides a wealth of information about the shrines, factions, personalities, quests, and intrigue that can be found within the walls of The Plinth: A Waterdeep Location. 

This 32-page supplement provides a wealth of material that a DM can use to breathe life into the wonderful City of Waterdeep. In it you will find 11 new NPC’s including factional contacts, details on 20 religious shrines including Azuth, Bane, Deneir, and Eldath, information on the mysterious Seekers of Selûne and the holy relics known as the Mother Source Fragments, 6 detailed maps, 4 quest adventures, and a wealth of incredible artwork that details the City of Splendors and its environment.

Is the Plinth the same as Holyhands House?

Hi, interesting question! No, the plinth is much more of a well established location in Waterdeep. The Holyhands House seems to be more the work of one individual's efforts, where the Plinth developed over many years and is in fact owned by the City. It originally was a monument open to all as a free worship zone. We grew it into a City building that includes 20 shrine areas that can change yearly based on the will of the populous, but open to all faiths and anyone who needs a place to get out of the cold or rain. Holyhands House seemed to cater more to the well-to-do, where the Plinth is an everyday persons place to pay homage to the gods, located at the crossroads of Trade, Castle and Dock Ward.

Oh, interesting! It's not mentioned in Dragon Heist as far as I remember, so that's weird. :) I'll buy a copy.

That's great, thank you. It originally appeared in Volo's guide to Waterdeep which was published during 2nd addition AD&D and I used it as a a quest hub for my campaign. The memories from those times inspired this product and we hope to use it as a primer location for future quest products too. I hope you enjoy it!

Publisher Stock #
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.
