THE PLINTH: A Waterdeep Location
There are so many places to go in the City of Splendors that it can be hard for players to choose where to start. One of these locations, The Plinth, is a well known landmark that can be easily found, is open to all, and is a meeting place for many of the religious orders and political factions in Waterdeep. But can a temple shared by twenty faiths be a place of comfort? Why do select Seekers search here for clues to the Mother Source Heresy? What faiths will be granted a shrine here on Plinth Day? The veneer of civility is peeled away in this art-rich supplement that provides a wealth of information about the shrines, factions, personalities, quests, and intrigue that can be found within the walls of The Plinth: A Waterdeep Location. This 32-page supplement provides a wealth of material that a DM can use to breathe life into the wonderful City of Waterdeep. In it you will find 11 new NPC’s including factional contacts, details on 20 religious shrines including Azuth, Bane, Deneir, and Eldath, information on the mysterious Seekers of Selûne and the holy relics known as the Mother Source Fragments, 6 detailed maps, 4 quest adventures, and a wealth of incredible artwork that details the City of Splendors and its environment.

THE FOUNDING of the eldritch press
Fletcher Haug and Guy Corey are the founders of The Eldritch Press. Fletcher discovered Dungeon & Dragons in 1978 and has created and played in campaigns with scores of diverse players through every edition of the game. Guy has an education in game development and a history as a video game junkie. He was blown away after his first game of tabletop D&D. He digested every shred of information on the game he can, yet he still hungers for more. Into the creative constructs of this duo a digital artist and illustrator wandered aimlessly and unaware of deep magic underfoot. He is now the Art Director and Principle Illustrator at The Eldritch Press. This coven forms the luminant triumvirate who craft-brew their products with great care. After the process ferments and matures, the triumvirate uses mind manipulation to draw in others who toil to tweak and playtest the contours of their proto-sentient worlds. Beware, lest you too become ensnared in the depths of this profound yet ecstatic magic.
Fletcher is a master GM and a highly effective conductor of creativity. It is his job to germinate a population of gaming narratives and to select scenarios to orchestrate through the process of actualization.
Guy is the robust connoisseur and grounding element behind the products that The Eldritch Press makes manifest. His mastery of game mechanics and balance allows players to remain creative, and for Eldritch products to remain fresh and enticing.
Charlie is an award-winning digital artist and photographer. His unique style seeks to invite players into the creative act of image creation as opposed to simply representing adventure characters or environments.
