I ran Dragon Heist for a 24 hour game and this chart was very useful for remembering NPCs and staying on track with the story, especially when running on no sleep. It is well organized and clearly shows how each NPC connects with each of the villians. If you're running the game with more than one villian this chart is great for helping keep tack of each villians individual goals.

Useful reference not just for making sure you keep track of the characters, but also to remind you to bring in characters you may have forgotten about.

Just getting into the module myself, 2 sessions behind and there are a lots of NPCs. This helps me by getting a quick overlook over the main characters and their relations.

One NPC who is very loved by the community that I didn't find is the Black Viper / Esvele, who is also a good acquaintance of Renaer Neverember. Even though she doesn't have a huge plot significance, I would add her due to her being a very interesting character who adds a lot to the story if you run her.

Also for someone (me) who hasn't read all of the module yet, there's one odd place with arrows on the leftish mid-range of the npc map. We have an arrow going from Jarlaxle to

  1. escapes on (submarine)
  2. lovers (are both the acrobat and the lyrist his lovers? or are they each others lovers?)
  3. infiltrates party, arrow going to the Harper's Haventree/Overseer Arrow nr. 2 question is quite clear, I guess I'd figure it out by reading the book, but why is the arrow of infiltrating the party going to the Harper's Overseer?

Nothing else that I got especially confused by for now, but it might be less confusing if I was 100% familiar with the material.

E: Thanks for the answer! As I said, I'm not 100% familiar with the material yet, so the NPC map was right, I was just surprised by some of the connections :D Also I think the Black Viper probably is more featured in the faction quests which you have omitted for space, so no wonder I had a bit trouble finding her.

E2: Reddit is where I come from :p

Thank you for your review. The Black Viper is already on the map. Please see the upper right corner with Nobility. As for Jarlaxle: 1. Yes, Jarlaxle escapes on the submarine if death or defeat is certain. 2. All three are lovers, as described in Chapter 7. 3. Jarlaxle infiltrates Haventree's party; it's the 5th level Harper faction quest.
> Thanks for the answer! No problem! Please let me know if you have any more questions. And yes, I had to omit some details from faction quests from the map for space. You should also check out reddit.com/r/waterdeepdragonheist if you haven't already!

This map is a life-saver. It's saved me, I swear, hours of flipping through the 200+ page book.

This NPC map includes minor unnamed NPCs such as 4d6 bandits from mistshore which can be hired for 1gp a piece (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 65), but does NOT include Dagult Neverember's estranged mistress named Kalain whose converted windmill mannor litterally sits above the Vault of Dragons in the "Autumn Encounter Chain" (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 88), or Algondar Daliano and his faerie dragon companion Wishes (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 75). I discovered these omission after only a few minutes of scanning the product. It certainly doesn't include "secret NPCs" such as Artor Morlin, aka the Baron of Blood, hinted at by Volo describing hundreds of driftglobes that bob about the City of the Dead at night (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 181).

Jalester Silvermane is spelled incorrectly as Jalestar in the document and has a single line drawn to a box labled "Quest Giver" but no lines drawn to Laerel Silverhand who he reports to directly, or Durnan depite spending much of his time at the Yawning Portal (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 38). This is NOT a text rich document and is not searchable using the "Find" feature. Zelifarn the young bronze dragon is connected to nobody despite being mentioned numerous times in the campaign (Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, pg 36, 91, 145).

This product was most likely designed by someone running the "Winter Encounter Chain" considering random plot details from "Winter Encounter Chain" are included in this NPC map, and many of the missing NPCs are from the "Autumn Encounter Chain", which I am running for my group. This product is maybe worth $0.25, maybe $0.99 IF you are running the "Winter Encounter Chain", but not $1.99 in my opinion. If you are running the Spring, Summer, or Autumn Encounter Chain save your money.

Thank you for your feedback. 1. Grinda Garloth is on the map. See "Mistshore & Deepwater Harbor" on the bottom. 2. Dagult's mistress is only relevant in one scene (Chapter 4, autumn chain) and space on the map is at a premium. She has no relevance to the overarcing plot whereas the NPCs and events described in the Winter chain are. In contrast, Manshoon's plot to control the press, which is revealed in a winter event, has much more importance to the plot. 3. For the most part, the seasonal event chains are unmentioned because their relevance and importance are contained in thaf scene. Exceptions include kidnappings between various factions. 4. "Secret NPCs" such as Artor Morlin do not even appear in the module so there was no point in including him or others. Had there been a quest or scene provided, that would change things. 5. While Zelifarn is indeed mentioned, space is a premium on the map. Any information regarding him is often as straight forward to be found and is mentioned in faction quests. As you may notice, faction quests weren't a high priority unless it had major plot implications. 6. Thanks for pointing out the typo on Silvermane. I'll correct it.
