    I have it placed in a chamber off from the roof of the main lair of Glazhael. The passage entrance is almost entirely blocked off by ice and frost, and is heavily obscured by ice stalagtites and frozen debris. Vampires should not be so easy to destroy so is likely going to be an ongoing threat even after they chase her off the castle. Many have cirticised the Op nature of skyreach - particularly with a vampire jsut as night patrol duty. I am leaving her in at full strength/threat but giving the party some slack through roleplay.

    Sandyssel wasnt asked to guard/watch, but was offered a safe place for a lair that she coudl easily travel without the threat of being found by adventurers in wagons etc when travelling from town to town.

    She doesnt care for Tiamat, living dragons or the Severin and his flunkies at all.
    She has a long term goal - a dragon mount that suits her taste.
    She has a short term goal - replace the two male elf spawn from the current PC group.

    She selected the barbarian for business time/lair protection
    She selected the warlock half-elf with 20 Chrarisma for party time

    neither of them are her swawn yet... but the barbarian remains charmed, open and receptive

    However, if the players are having fun it hardly matters.
    I agree and that was my initial position, however the chief headkickers (rezmir etc.. ) were all still at full strength when dragon was told to flee and recover so would conceivably return next day to investigate. If Sandyssyl gets the chance she will finish off the dragon and raise it as a vampire spawn thrall!

    Now that Dragon Heist is out, it's a great resource for local color in Waterdeep. If you're running this as a DM, it's worth looking through that book for inspiration on how to handle the Waterdeep scenes in both this adventure and Rise of Tiamat.

    If you don't have Dragon Heist, there are a couple of free excerpts on the Wizards site. The Waterdeep Code Legal lays out the punishments for various crimes that PCs might commit while there. And if you're planning a side trip to the Yawning Portal, or just need some NPCs, "Friendly Faces" has portraits and sample quotes to suggest personality.

    To add to what @jayoungr said, you can actually purchase Voloís Waterdeep Enchiridion (the fluff piece at the end of Dragon Heist) separately on the DMs Guild. Itís worth noting, however, that it assumes the Tyranny of Dragons storyline has already taken place as Laeral Silverhand is Open Lord of Waterdeep.

    Thanks for the tip about that! Here's a link:

    https://www.dmsguild.com/product/254...n&test_epoch=0

    Proceeds from this product go toward Extra Life, also, so it's for a good cause.

    She becomes Open Lord during Rise of Tiamat, so if that's the only problem, it could still be contemporaneous. (Haven't finished reading it yet myself.)
