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