The Thieves of Waterdeep
Waterdeep City Watch
Waterdeep's domestic police
The Watch, far more often seen by most citizens and visitors (compared to the City Guard), are the City’s daily, domestic police, and do far more than arrest offenders. They may aid passersby with heavy loads, give directions, search for lost children, provide basic medical aid, and referee gambling disputes or children’s fights during a typical patrol.
A Watch street patrol usually consists of four men, afoot, two being officers – an “armar” (sergeant) and a “civilar” (captain or lieutenant) – and all being clad in leather and chain armour, and armed with rods, daggers and short swords.
