Skullport

Skullport (or sometimes, the Port of Shadow) is often thought of as a dark reflection of the city above—if almost anything can be had in the markets of Waterdeep, the rest can be found in Skullport. Slaves, drugs, cadavers, poisons, codices of darkest magic and forbidden lore … it is said by some that the Lords of the city above tolerate the existence of the Port of Shadow because it keeps the worst of the black market off of their streets.

It is said by others that many shady and powerful interests operate in Skullport, and that the Lords couldn’t destroy it if they wanted to, at least not without a fight that could endanger the whole city.
