Publisher's Summary

In the streets of Waterdeep, conspiracies run like water through the gutters, bubbling beneath the seeming calm of the city’s life. As a band of young, foppish lords discovers there is a dark side to the city they all love, a sinister mage and his son seek to create perverted creatures to further their twisted ends.

And across it all sprawls the great city itself: brawling, drinking, laughing, living life to the fullest. Even in the face of death.

City of Splendors is set in the most important city of the Forgotten Realms setting: Waterdeep, city of intrigue and secrets. Its authors are considered to be among the most authoritative figures writing in the Forgotten Realms setting. This novel is their first collaboration.

  • Story

A long, slice-of-life D&D story.

No great heroes or epic quests here. just people surviving in the biggest city on Faerun.

The performance was stilted and over or under acted at times.

Voice actor

Poor choice for the voice actor. Very monotone at the beginning. Other that that it was a fairly good story.
