The City of Splendors is a center of commerce, where representatives of every race, creed, and nation come to trade, spread rumors, and make their fortunes.
Campaign Setting: Forgotten Realms
The Jewel of the North is a crossroads city hungry for coin and tolerant of outsiders.

The city is famed for the legendary dungeon known as Undermountain that lies beneath its streets, holding all manner of monsters and treasure. Benefit:
