So I like Waterdeep DH, especially as an intro to #dnd. But wow, it could be a short adventure, depending how you pace it. Sonething to keep in mind. Use the faction quests, make that tavern of theirs a centerpiece of your early sessions, because it needs a bit of padding out. When playtesting DH, months and months ago now, I had the 'real thief' repeatedly move the treasure from under the PCs' noses to another locale, trying to set up a successful framing of the PCs as the thieves AND behind earlier thefts, in the eyes of certain other Deep citizens.
