Waterdeep Dragon Heist! A Short Campaign

About the adventure

Waterdeep is the city of Splendors, and absolute laws. This adventure begins with the change of the seasons, and a stray kidnapping leading the party down a path that fate has prepared for them. From here you will learn the subtleties of Waterdavian life and even place your own roots to grow, all culminating to the grandest of finales if you play your cards right. Play your cards wrong however and you might find out that the law is far more dangerous than any angry owlbear. This campaign generally takes 4 to 8 sessions to fully finish the book depending on player choices and the amount of roleplay in which they would like to engage in. This book is very heavy on the role play and not as much on the combat. Social and Exploration pillars will get you far as long as the dice gods are kind. If you sign up for the hardcover please make your best effort to commit to the book until it is over, as it will reward you with a solid overarching story. We will be Using Tale Spire when possible
