Hell of a Summer
This area of rolling grassland and small wooded areas east of the city is a rural community focused on farming and animal husbandry, and which caters to travelers. It is also the site of a large and well-protected training camp for the City Guard, and a prison farm run by the City Watch (called Amendsfarm) where those convicted of minor offenses work o ff their debt to the city. Many gnomes and halflings live in this region, and most buildings are built to reflect their stature.
Two noble families have estates in Undercliff. The ir’Amcathra estate is used for the housing and final training of horses bred in the town of Amphail, a day’s ride north of the city, many of which are sold to the City Guard. The ir’Hothemer noble house has an estate where its members conduct business in trade beyond the reach of Waterdeep’s auditors. Their estate has an airship tether and a special license allowing them to traffic goods and people in Thronehold’s restricted airspace.
The Snobeedle Orchard and Meadery, owned and run by the Snobeedle halfling clan. While not tied to House Ghallanda they have a reputation for running a delightful drinking hall and have a shop sized for larger patrons, and you can pick your own fruit when it is in season.
