Lords of Waterdeep takes place, surprisingly enough, in the city-state of Waterdeep, a port located in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. It is one of the most beloved locations in Dungeons & Dragons history, due in large part to the political intrigue created by the Masked Lords who rule it.
Stem cell research is playing a “distant supporting role” in campaigns across the country, said DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas.
