Book of Holding
Library of Deneir
Waterdeep is known for its worship of Oghma and Deneir, gods of knowledge and the spread of knowledge. Each church maintains a library of its own, but the two churches are in close contact because Deneir serves Oghma. The two churches have different reasons for collecting tomes and these reasons are reflected in the types of tomes that one finds at each of the churches. The church of Deneir, following its god's interests, collects literature and maps primarily, but it also keeps records of ancient languages and artistic renderings. The church of Deneir is full of scribes that transcribe books for the ever-growing collection. The church of Oghma is interested in knowledge in general (nonfiction), and the songs of bards from across the lands. The two churches share their works to promote the universal spread of knowledge.
