Has Waterdeep Sent a Spoiler to Neverwinter? [UPDATED]

A little tweet can cause so much excitement. If you don’t believe us then just look at what the below picture did with a little quote attached to it: “You think this is the place?”

People quickly checked out the place in Protector’s Enclave and confirmed the caravan is indeed real. Of course the devs constantly work on the environment and tweak areas here and there, but this doesn’t seem to be a random encounter. The caravan has some unique details and both NPCs share parts of the story why they came to the Protector’s Enclave. They seem to be some dubious businessmen that recently arrived and now curiously scout the area.

The caravan next to that big barrel also carries a pretty interesting detail: A Beholder! And this is where we can start building our trail of evidence that may lead us right into Waterdeep, and the Undermountain dungeon! Because a Beholder named Xanathar will play a vital role in Dungeons & Dragons upcoming story content “Waterdeep: Dragon Heist”. Xanathar was one of most infamous Beholders and the crime lord of the Xanathar Thieves’ Guild in Skullport. Skullport, also known as the Port of Shadows, is part of the Undermountain dungeon that lies deep beneath Waterdeep. Some people also said that the names of the NPCs in Protector’s Enclave appear in some D&D Waterdeep material.

Are We Getting Closer?

So yeah, only days after we broke the news about the Fishing feature and a possible connection to Waterdeep in Module 15, we get more even more clues! After writing the initial news on the topic, the caravan has moved on and we happily quote “Alphastream”, who has done a marvelous job compiling all the information:

The caravan is gone, having moved to in front of Coriol Gate. Some old and some new dialogue, [… which …] confirms a Waterdeep connection! Closer to where it had been, there is a dead body on the ground with 3 guards inspecting it and talking to a citizen. Further down Coriol street (across from the old Linkletter residence) is another “interrogation” taking place. I see other interrogations around PE. I don’t recall seeing those before?

What’s your opinion here? Are we fantasizing or is the Waterdeep connection real?

Should Content Creators Be More Positive About the Game to Get Officially Supported?

  • Nope. The devs should be glad that their small game is extensively covered and embrace it! (32%, 126 Votes)
  • Probably, but there's too much black and white thinking involved. If somebody puts out more helpful than harmful content, they should be supported. (29%, 114 Votes)
  • Definitely. People can't expect support from a game they're constantly bashing. (25%, 99 Votes)
  • Maybe. Positive content is better, but any coverage for the game is a plus. (13%, 50 Votes)

    I think Xanathar was the end boss in the old floppy disk game Eye of the Beholder, as well.

    Personally, I’d like 6 months of bug fixes more than any rush to a new module. I am only just getting used to RAQs taking me to FBI and MSP and I’ve still not updated gear for all my classes yet.

    But more than that I need another million AD for WB Marks by the next 15% discount on August 9-16, 2018.

    🙂

    The movers are now next to Coriol Street Gate.
    They indeed talk about moving the stuff in their wagon to a new house before returning to Waterdeep.

    There are also now some guards looking into a murder near where the caravan had first been. I’ve added details to the page in the forums.

    And now the caravan has moved, with updated text. Looks like they found their home, between the auction house and the market. They also mention a ship will be docking. Hmm…
