The Half Quiver

The Half Quiver is a two-story smithy located just off the High Road in Waterdeep in the Southern Ward and owned by the Arrowheads. The smithy is run by the young half-elf artificer Arafiel Selthi, who manages both item construction and buying/selling. The smithy was opened up soon after The Bronze Dragon in order to support the Arrowheads, but now also serves the general public. The store is only open for two hours per day at highsun.

Purpose / Function

The Half Quiver provides various metalworking, woodworking, tailoring, and arcane services, with a focus on those required by adventurers. A small forge is located outside, and hammering can be heard at many hours of the day - but it's usually drowned out by the rowdy tavern located next door. Most customers will only see the storefront, where a number of non-magical items are displayed for sale. Magical and valuable items are stored in the arcane locked basement of the smithy. The rear rooms are specialised for various artisinal crafts, such as woodworking, tailoring, and item enchantment. Upstairs is Arafiel's rooms, as she lives in the smithy.


As Arafiel's skills are focused on metal, wood, and leatherworking, so to is The Half Quiver's item selection. Thanks to the Arrowheads' connections with suppliers, The Half Quiver can provide adamantine or mithral gear at an extra cost of 500 gp and 450 gp respectively (on top of any existing price).

Compared to Jacobius' Guide to Arcane Pricing reccomended pricing, The Half Quiver is slightly more expensive for magic items. It makes up for this increase in price by providing a more targeted selection of items and a short turnaround time. If there are items not on the list or otherwise unavailable, customers are able to head next door to meet with the Arrowheads and arrange for them to acquire the item in question.
