reading through the laws of Waterdeep, & it acknowledges the fact high-level magic exists (“airspace” laws, laws against magic compulsion), but I can’t seem to find: what’s the sentence for resurrecting a criminal sentenced to death? (assuming it happens in the city) There isn't one, but no one would do it publicly in the time of Piergeiron, as they'd have to answer to him (thwarting justice? exile for you!) UNLESS they could argue temple guidance (from priests = gods), because he'd accept that as divine will it would be better not to cross.
