South Ward, more properly called Southern Ward, though native Waterdhavians did not call it such, was the smallest of the seven Wards of the city of Waterdeep, though curiously, not the south-most; this distinction went to Dock Ward, which bordered Southern Ward in the west and the south across the Way of the Dragon.

GeographyEdit

The northern boundary with Trades Ward lay across Telshambra's Street and Caravan Court. To the east, the Ward was bounded by the city walls (circa 1372 DR), specifically the "Trollwall", which included the southern inner gate leading to the Caravan Grounds and the South Gate beyond.[1][4][2][3]

InhabitantsEdit

This was considered the "poor" ward and was often known as Caravan City due to the large numbers of caravan merchants, teamsters and guards that swelled the population of the ward most of the year.[2]

Dust and mud was common on the streets and most buildings were old, multi-story tenements with shops or businesses on the ground floor.[5] Many visited the ward to experience the wonder of the Moon Sphere; a miraculous event occurring on the nights of the full moon in the Dancing Court,[6] adjacent to the Jade Dancer; one of the best-known festhalls in the city.[7]
