Residents of Trollskull Alley


Waterdeep: Dragon Heist introduces us to Trollskull Alley, home to Trollskull Manor in the heart of the North Ward of the City of Waterdeep.  Waterdeep is a rich and vibrant city.  Volothamp’s Enchiridion gives us some nice color on the city and Chapter 2 of the book introduces a few of the residents of the alley.  This supplement adds detail and depth to each of those non-player characters and introduces dozens more.  It also provides maps for several buildings in Trollskull Alley, adventure hooks and encounters ranging from fun and frivolous to challenging and difficult for adventurers far above and beyond 5th level. 

If Trollskull Manor is your home base, come inside and meet the neighbors.  They are a colorful lot.  Our goal in creating this supplement was to make the area around Trollskull feels vibrant and alive.  Not just home to a handful of businesses and their proprietors, but truly a living breathing home for your party.

Noting that W4, W8, W11, and W17-21 have no entries. I'm assuming that you left these empty for DMs to add their own things into, however you never note this in the document and may want to consider adding a sentence to this effect.

OH! I see, V6 coming in the next 5 days. I'll be using W18 for a business that a couple of characters from a previous campaign opened.

You've done great work on this, looking forward to the interior layouts for the rest of the buildings

A Printer-Friendly version for at least the Residents of Trollskull Manor would be much appreciated.

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.
