Does he have a section of the Waterdeep sewers that he's marked as his own or does he more or less have control over the whole thing but only inhabits or patrols certain parts when he's on high alert or something to that effect? (I really need to read more than the 5E supplements and sign up for whatever the best current source of lore articles is).

Death's so quick but it can last so long.

The sewers of Waterdeep are very complex/ A lot of ins and out and what have yous.

No one controls them all. The lords and their agents, the crime element - Xanathar 2.0 being just 1 of them, and various monstrous entities vie for control of regions.

Agreed. Though I'd say that in 100 years, we may be on Xanathar 4.0 or 5.0 by now. Crime lords are rarely known for longevity. (Note: if there's anything saying the current Xanathar is 2.0 and not another who assumed the name, then I've forgotten about it or never read it)

More than that. Like, Xanathar the 100th or so. So many Xanathar's have existed after the Eye (the one from 3.x, who is the Xanathar 2.0), that the count is lost. There is an article in Dungeon 206 that updates the history of the Xanathar up to 4e, and AFAIK, the Xanathar of 4e is the same one in 5e (Zushaxx)—if we go by what is said in Volo's Guide to Monsters.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Hmmm true, but the "End of 4e" is merely a few years from the official "Start Year" of 5th Edition, right? The events of 4e ends roughly around 1486. And 5th Edition campaign events begins roughly around 1490 (give or take one year). So very little time has elapsed between when 4th Edition ends and when 5th Edition begins.

Fun fact: A beholder's mouth doubles as its port of exit for excrement, so it naturally smells like a sewer up close.

Adds a whole new visual to beholders "marking their territory". Also explains why they're often so cranky.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail
