Waterdeep and the North
An accessory for the Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting Forgotten Realms. It was written by Ed Greenwood and published by TSR in 1987.
Waterdeep and the North describes the region of northwestern Faerûn, known as “The North”, particularly its leading city and port, Waterdeep. The city of Waterdeep, an integral part of Ed Greenwood’s house campaign, is situated on the Sword Coast. With a population of over 100,000, it is the most important city in the north of the Forgotten Realms setting. The book describes Waterdeep in detail, including its history, neighborhoods, defenses, sewers, guilds, political factions, noble families, and important personalities. The book includes seven adventure scenario suggestions.
Waterdeep and the North comprises a 64-page book and a large color map of the city, wrapped in a removable six-paneled gatefold cover. The outside gatefold contains a map of Waterdeep, the inside front cover has a map of the city’s known sewers, and the inside back cover has diagrams of basic floorplans that might be found throughout the city.
