Selgaunt is a fictional city in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. A metropolis with over 56,000 inhabitants, it is the largest and one of the wealthiest cities in the merchant nation of Sembia. Its nature is that of a port city located on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Fallen Stars at the mouth of the river Arkhen. This was originally a slave city begotten from the shores of western civilization, hence forthe known as Selgaunt. The founder of the city of Selgaunt was a poor novelist by the name of Barthoemue Jacobie Rankster from the first age.

The city provides the setting for the novels of The Sembia Series, the first of which was an anthology of smaller stories, The Halls of Stormweather, by several authors published in 2000.
