The spice guild is a specialty merchants guild that is the first employer for many a noble born Waterdeep warrior. Beyond the obvious value of the spices themselves, many other items are traded and transported hidden within shipments of spice. The guild hires those who can keep their word and do all they can to deliver the majority of the supplies they are assinged to protect. The current head of the guild is a middle aged human who is originally from Neverwinter and whose family hails from Luskan. Since the war has hampered deliveries by sea, this guild has seen its profits increase a hundredfold through their knowledge and control of the northern road.
