Waterdeep, also known as the City of Splendors or the Crown of the North, is the most important and influential city in The North and perhaps in all Faerûn.
The road to Waterdeep was well paved and well patrolled. Waterdeep’s authority extended between thirty to forty miles from its walls. The city is the hub of trading from the mineral-rich lands to the north, the merchant kingdoms of Amn and Calimshan to the south, the kingdoms of the Inner Sea to the east, and the sea kingdoms and traders to the west.
