Sanctum of the Makers
Known as the City of Splendours, Waterdeep is one of the largest and busiest cities—and one of the most important political powers—on the continent. The population is primarily human, although other races dwell therein. The city government used to consist of a cryptocracy of (mostly) anonymous individuals known as the Masked Lords of Waterdeep. However, in recent years, a new Leader has risen remarkably in the publics favour, one Dagras Burnside. Burnside is a mysterious man, and nobody seems to know his origins bar a few. The roads to Waterdeep are well paved and patrolled, as Waterdeep is the most important trade hub on the entire planet. Despite its size, the inhabitants of Waterdeep are described as largely benevolent and ethically good-natured people. This is due to the efforts of its Leader, the efforts of the Waterdeep City Watch, and the close proximity of Skullport, which draws in those prone to unlawful or unethical behavior.
