Waterdeep would be fun to visit. Silverymoon is probably the safest though. I voted Waterdeep.

Me too Waterdeep has always been my favorite FR city. Its so full of mystery and wonder. One can truly get lost there and not care if you ever escaped.

Other, a nice glade with dancing good Drow.

Neverwinter, since it was my introduction to the Realms, and then Silverymoon and Waterdeep.

I voted silverymoon. I would love to meet Alustriel. I hear a certain Drow ranger shows up from time to time, too....

Skullport would probably be the most impressive... but I probably wouldn't last an hour (nor would I want to actually fit in). Silverymoon it is then.

Oblivion loomed on every side, the offspring lived, basking in the realization that each moment could be the last moment.

Waterdeep is my fave city in the Realms... In fact, it was Volo's Guide to Waterdeep that made me fall in love with the setting. That's why I have a tendency to drop anything I create there, and why I wrote the series of articles in the Compendium that detailed four Hidden Lords of my own creation.

Silverymoon would be my second choice. Maybe Suzail or Velprintalar as third and fourth choices.

This is assuming pre-Sellplague, of course. After that, prolly Silverymoon as my first choice, and Suzail as the second choice.

Dark Arrow Keep. Mithral Hall after that. Silverymoon. Luskan, Neverwinter, Waterdeep, Baldur's Gate. Just work my way down the coast from there.

Silverymoon, a nice safe starting point.

The vote goes to Other. Halagard is an easy going place with magical opportunities.

The question is a tricky one. If you have no choice of reincarnation, then you cannot know if you are capable of visiting that city.

You can hear many tales from many mouths. The most difficult is to know which of them are not lies. - Sill Alias

Even if base assumption is reincarnation as human, there clearly is also a time issue. Some places really are not good to show up at based on what year it is.
