Trades Ward lies generally to the south of Castle Ward and the City of the Dead, and is an arbitrary slice of the bustling commercial area of the city, where most moderately wealthy merchants live, and much of the city's light-goods and respectable trade takes place.
The City of the Dead is a walled cemetery, strictly patrolled at all times by the Watch. No one is permitted to reside within the burial ground and no one, whether vagrants or young nobles, is permitted to sleep overnight here. The Lords and their servants maintain the graveyard in a beautiful, park-like open condition, its marble statues and tombs and gravel paths all well tended and clean. The City of the Dead is often used as a meeting place by the natives of Waterdeep at all hours, despite the restrictions of the Watch.
