Three Factions of Waterdeep: Bregan D'aerthe, Gray Hands, and Xanathar Guild


Bregan D'aerthe, Gray Hands, Xanathar Guild...these three factions play a significant role in Waterdeep - Dragon Heist. This document expands and integrates those faction rules and benefits into one cohesive resource for playable factions, further detailing various ranks and their associated perks. The writer took a similar approach to the publication Guide to the Five Factions. It includes:

  • By-faction perks for ranks 1-5.
  • Summary of renown rules and short background of each faction.
  • A magic item for each faction representing the various faction insignias with descriptions of the faction perks, with D&D Beyond links that provide the player quick access to the perks, promoting character involvement.
  • Factions membership cards which can be used as handouts with QR code on the back linking to the D&D Beyond magic item.
  • 2 Gray Hands subfactions with perks:
    • Force Grey.
    • Deep Delvers.
  • Equipment including a fully detailed drow gunslinger's pistol (with five types of ammunition), spelunking pack, faction loot satchel, and spidersilk rope.
  • PNG files of wax seals for faction letters and missives, for the three factions and the two subfactions.
  • Phone PDFs for each faction which can be emailed to players for easy reference.
  • Downtime faction jobs unique for each faction.

The the META data in the Three Factions of Waterdeep PDF has all the same info from the Guide to the Five Factions and it's really hitting my OCD.

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.
