City of the Dead (and character grave markers)

Postby Xairren » Wed Feb 20, 2008 10:50 pm

Surrounded by the Trade Ward on the Eastern edge of the city is Waterdeeps general cemetery. Stone walls surround the City of the Dead so that at night the area can be secured lest some fiendish resident rise up and wander into the city. During the day however the City of the Dead acts as one of Waterdeeps largest green parks. Peaceful walks through old trees and grand mausoleums can be had here as well as places to meet old and new friends alike.

(Will we see your headstone here any time soon?)

Baradir Lanaden

Elint 7, 1357 DR to Mirtul 24, 1377 DR

The final inscription appears to have been roughly chiseled into the grave marker, as if the author was in a hurry.

Roryn Kegsplitter

Eleint 8, 1326 DR to Eleasias 11, 1377 DR

Lost in the depths
Of sorrow and pain
He left the city behind
To live alone again

North did he go
Killing orcs full of greed
He found renewed faith from his god
As he ventured to help another woman in need

The bear was quite mighty
Roryn was small
Though large of heart
In the end did he fall
