The Watchful Order of Magists and Protectors was the guild of wizards and sorcerers for the city of Waterdeep. However, while technically a guild, the Watchful Order functioned primarily as a mage academy. The Watchful Order also policed the use of magic within Waterdeep, encouraging wizards to use magic wisely.[1]

The Order provided many services to its members, including a venue for trading spell components and magical items. The Order served Waterdeep by providing spell wards for wealthy inhabitants and fire fighting through the use of water elementals.[1] The Order also maintained important wards throughout the city.[citation needed]
