City of Splendours is a superbly presented boxed set. The set gives a whole lot of information about the people found in the city, its neighbourhoods, its guilds, secret societies and much much more. The maps are very nicely presented, and they even included a lot of information regarding certain neighbourhoods.

This set is a must have. A lot can happen in this city, besides just hack and slash. It also creates a lot of information that can be used side to side with other Forgotten Realms products (for instance, Mirt the Moneylender and the Elves of Evermeet)
