This 224 page tabletop RPG adventure for characters of levels 1 to 5, provides a treasure hunt set in an urban environment. In Waterdeep, gold coins are called dragons, and your players will be on the hunt to find half million of them hidden somewhere in the city. The adventure is set against a backdrop of escalating tensions between two factions, the shadowy Zhentarim and the criminal Xanathar guild.
“Waterdeep Dragon Heist takes D&D back to civilization in an environment which encourages a lot of roleplaying,” according to Chris Perkins, the Lead Designer for the book. “A lot of the inspiration was from things like Ocean’s Eleven and The Italian Job in a city environment. Where the goal of the adventure is to try and find a trove of treasure and keep it out of the hands of villains.”
Waterdeep: Dragon Heist will be an urban treasure hunt requiring players to “use diplomacy, intrigue, stealth, and their wits to follow clues and solve puzzles.”
On November 13th, the Waterdeep: Dragon Heist Dice Set are being released “which includes two d20s, plus a nifty life-tracker to keep a handle on your hit point totals as you uncover secrets in Waterdeep.”
