DM’s Notes

Here There Be Spoilers

For both the Waterdeep: Dragon Heist Module in general and for the overall story of this campaign.

The DM’s notes for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist are intended to be an aid to DM’s who want to run this module themselves. In them, I will link to resources for running this part of the module. I will also provide my own tips and tricks for running the module. Finally, I will attempt to explain the events of the session in the context of the larger plot as a whole. Because of this, these notes not only contain spoilers for the module Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but also they may contain spoilers for the story arc of this particular campaign. 

If you just want to follow along the campaign but don’t want to have the plot spoiled for you, read no further.
