Sword Coast

The lands along the Sea of Swords south of Waterdeep and north of the mouth of the River Chionthar at Baldur’s Gate are known as the Sword Coast. The name comes from the white cliffs that rise like a flashing blade from the shore to heights of up to half a mile, cutting off the sea and the land along hundreds of miles of coastline. It is no accident that the two greatest cities of the Sword Coast, Waterdeep and Baldur’s Gate, bracket either side of the great cliffs, because these are the only sites for hundreds of miles in which ships can safely moor.
