About the adventure

This module is run (mostly) true to the source material for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. Players will create characters at level one (or are welcome to use a pre-generated character that's ready to go) and will level up to five by the end of the adventure. This is a great adventure for those who want an urban setting for their D&D game and enjoy large amounts of interaction, intrigue, and urban exploration. Waterdeep Dragon’s Heist is a perfect fit for players that are looking for a more tightly packed adventure that centers more around the affairs of the city and the factions there within. Waterdeep is a bustling city along the Sword Coast of Faerun. The sessions I run are more about keeping the flow and the fun of the game going - so don't worry if you're not a rules expert. I use D&D Beyond to run combat and keep track of character information. This helps me keep the experience at the table as stress (and math) free as possible. 😄 Here's the adventure hook ⬇️ Welcome to Waterdeep, the Crown of the North, where a wondrous tale of urban adventure is about to unfold. Our story begins with the gathering of adventurers at the Yawning Portal Inn and Tavern. Volothamp Geddarm, the famous explorer and raconteur, has a quest for them — one that entangles the characters in a bitter conflict between two nefarious organizations. If the adventurers complete his quest, Volo rewards them handsomely. Yet a much greater prize lies hidden somewhere in the City of Splendors, waiting to be claimed...

Players have the option of using their webcam, but it is never a requirement. ➡️ Players should use HeroForge ( - to personalize a figure and then send me the link or a screenshot to create your character's token.
