Tyranny of Dragons
Waterdeep: the Crown of the North. This is one of the most important and influential cities in the North and perhaps in all Faerûn.
The road to Waterdeep is well paved and well patrolled. The metropolis marks the Northern end of the Trade Way route along the Sword Coast.
The city itself is divided into eight wards, or districts. It is governed by a council called the Lords of Waterdeep, a group of masked, mysterious individuals whose identities are unknown but constantly the subject of rumors and speculation.
