The newest official 5th edition Campaign Book features urban adventure for characters of level 1 through 5. I’ll be posting blogs on the campaign as I play through it with my tables, and publishing (hopefully) helpful stuff to the DM’s Guild whenever I’m able.
First order of business: maps.
Now, I don’t have anything against the sketch-and-paper style of maps that WotC have decided to go with in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but it does have some shortcomings. While the maps are great for getting a quick understanding of an area, building or dungeon, and great if you’re drawing out your maps at the table, they’re not really primed for digital tabletop-use – which is what I use.
Therefore I’ve created two renditions of the Zhentarim Guild and Xanathar Guild Hideout maps, using tools from Mike Schley’s Schleyscapes, that I feel does better on a screen. You can find both player and DM’s versions on the DM’s Guild, when you download Valeur RPG’s DM’s Resources for Chapter 1: A Friend in Need. You’ll not only get the two maps, but also a map for the Yawning Portal, and resources and ideas that’ll help you run the first chapter of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist.
Have fun adventuring!
